Reason why Madrid wore Jersey written Aporla 14 after beating Manchester City

The encounter between Real Madrid and Manchester City in the semi-finals came to a dramatic conclusion. After a lethargic first half in which Karim Benzima missed numerous chances, the second half had to be spectacular.

Manchester City outsmarted Real Madrid at home, winning 4-3, but Real Madrid seemed to have all the determination in the second leg.

Manchester City thought they had won the match after Marhez scored the opening goal in the 73rd minute, but Real Madrid were able to come back with two goals from supersub Rodrygo in the 90th and 91st minutes after Casemiro was substituted for Camavinga and Toni Kroos was substituted for Rodrygo. Karim Benzima sealed it with a brilliant penalty at the 95th minute of the extra time, winning 6-5 on aggregate.

This secured Madrid's place in the Final, where they will face Liverpool in the Stade de France on May 28th.

After the final whistle, the Real Madrid players were overjoyed. The athletes could be seen thanking the audience for their support. Marcelo was reportedly spotted attempting to carry Carlo Ancelotti, his coach, with delight.

Real Madrid players, both on the field and in the reserves, wore Aporla 14 jerseys as part of their celebrations.

Real Madrid has won the championship 13 times, and the number 14 on the jerseys is a symbol of hope that they will win it for the 14th time if they beat Liverpool at the Stade de France on May 28th.

Do you think Liverpool, who were knocked out by Real Madrid the previous time the two clubs met in the 2018 finals, will be able to overcome the 13-time champions with their present form?

Moh Salah stated on Twitter that he believes City is a stronger squad than Real Madrid and that he expects to win this time if they meet Real Madrid.
