Moment Carlo Ancelotti bursts into tears as Real Madrid dump out Man City

Carlo Ancelotti burst into tears after watching his Real Madrid side dump Manchester City out of the Champions League.

Real produced one of the greatest comebacks of all time in the final minutes of the 90 to leave City reeling. Pep Guardiola's side went from 1-0 up to 2-1 down in a matter of seconds as a last-gasp Rodrygo double forced extra time.

The Spanish giants sensed blood, and just moments into the first period of extra time, they killed off City once and for all. After being brought down by Ruben Dias inside the penalty area, Karim Benzema picked himself up and converted the resulting penalty to make it 3-1 on the night and 6-5 on aggregate.

And that's how it stayed as Real dumped City out to set up a second Champions League final in five years against Liverpool. The sheer emotion of the night was too much for some, including Los Blancos boss Carlo Ancelotti, who broke down in tears on the pitch after the match.

The usually cool, calm and collected Italian found it all a little too much as he fell into the arms of his son, Real assistant boss Davide. He then appeared tearful as he made his way onto the pitch to shake hands with the officials.

Speaking to BT Sport after the game, Ancelotti said: "I cannot say we are used to living this kind of night, but this sort of night happened against PSG and Chelsea too. It is really difficult to say why these games happen, perhaps the history of this club helps us in these moments when it seems like the game is gone.

"The magic of the Bernabeu is true because the game was almost over and we tried to find our last reserves of energy against a really strong rival.

"Psychologically we were stronger in extra time because of how it happened. I had no time to think about us losing the game, Man City had a good control of the game but in the last opportunity we were able to go to extra time."

Looking ahead to the final, he added: "Liverpool? A fantastic, unbelievable challenge. I am really happy to be there against another great rival and we are used to this. It will be a fantastic game for football."
