Crazy of the most dangerous roller coaster. Manchester City are champions again after a crazy comeback against Aston Villa. Trailing 0-2, the title seemed to be on its way to Liverpool, but three goals deep in the second half turned things around. Kevin De Bruyne was at the base of the popular festival with a big help on the title goal.
The matches of the last day always have something magical.
More unpredictable than any other game because of the huge pressure and tension that rages on the field. Often a roller coaster of emotions due to what is happening in the competition.
They’ve learned that lesson at Manchester City in the past – remember the historic final against Queens Park Rangers in 2012. And so the title holders were cautious despite the right attitude at the start. A home win against Aston Villa was a guarantee of the championship.
When rival Liverpool made a false start against Wolverhampton at Anfield, all the stars pointed in the direction of City, but then the magic of the title match began…
Sadio Mane equalized Liverpool half an hour ago and in Manchester the unthinkable happened: Aston Villa drew 0-1 through Cash. The Etihad Stadium was suddenly filled with fear – wasn’t it?
After the break, City fought the doomsday scenario. Kevin De Bruyne criticized more and Gabriel Jesus missed an imposed opportunity. Meanwhile, Liverpool saw a 2-1 disqualification for offside.
With half an hour left in the match, Pep Guardiola was skipping the ranks. Knowing that his team is still a virtual champion, he teetered with a thin rope.
De Bruyne also missed the opportunity to equalize with a free kick outside the penalty area. One minute later, Philippe Coutinho (ex-Liverpool) made the score 0-2. City felt the cup fell from his hands, but Liverpool felt it pick up too?
Because at Anfield, the Reds were chasing the winning goal.
Unlikely remonte, main role De Bruyne
But it was only when City no longer had to fend for themselves that the reigning champions took over.
Substitute Gundogan took charge of the calling goal, and Rodri managed to make the score 2-2 after a few minutes. Al Ittihad Stadium was once again filled with hope. And ten minutes before the end, De Bruyne played a major role.
With great help from Gundogan, the Red Devil completed his historical remont against City: 3-2! An advantage that they will never give up again. It didn’t matter anymore that at 55 kilometres, Salah finally gave Liverpool the lead.
