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!”

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.
