Peter Drury’s commentary after the final whistle of Real Madrid vs Man City was poetic

Daniel Brown

Incredible game, incredible comeback, incredible commentary

Football commentator Peter Drury once again proved his ability on the mic after delivering a poetic masterpiece in the aftermath of Real Madrid’s dramatic Champions League win against Manchester City on Wednesday night.

City – who came into the second leg with a 4-3 aggregate lead after overcoming Madrid in the first leg last week – looked as though they were heading towards a final against Premier League rivals Liverpool after a 73rd minute strike from Riyad Mahrez put them 5-3 ahead on aggregate.

However, in a truly remarkable turn of events, Madrid substitute Rodrygo scored two goals in the final few minutes before Karim Benzema sent Ederson the wrong way from the penalty spot in extra-time to send Los Blancos to the final.

Following Rodrygo’s 91st minute equaliser, Drury – who is known for his ability to perfectly capture and describe moments in a game – delivered a wonderful piece of commentary, saying: “They prayed for miracles and miracles have arrived. Real Madrid, the team of dreams!”

Once the full-time whistle had gone, Drury again demonstrated his unique ability to perfectly encapsulate a moment in a game – delivering a spectacular piece of commentary, as the footage below shows.

Carragher mocks Richards after City exit

Having beaten Villarreal 2-0 at Anfield, a spirited first-half display by Unai Emery’s side saw Jurgen Klopp’s men pegged back to 2-2 on aggregate. Liverpool overcame the setback after the interval, but Jamie Carragher – on punditry duty for CBS Sport – was clearly worried. Co-pundits Thierry Henry and former City player Micah Richards clearly saw the funny side to it.

A little over 24 hours later, Richards almost certainly wasn’t laughing after watching his old team crumble in the final minutes.

Carragher was quick to remind his co-pundit of what had happened at half-time the previous night, @-ing Richards in on his quote tweet of the footage above.

Liverpool and Real Madrid will compete for Champions League glory at the Stade de France in Saint-Denis on May 28.
