History did not seem to be in Real Madrid's favor. The aggregate was in favor of Manchester City 4-3. The second leg started evenly. Neither of the two teams had an edge over the other.

The Citizens scored the first goal of the match. When it seemed that El Merengue was eliminated, Benzema and Rodrygo appeared. The Brazilian scored the two goals that took the game into extra time. And in the first half of extra time, Benzema scored Real Madrid's third goal and the qualifying goal for 2021-2022 UEFA Champions League Final.
