Messi's reaction to Real Madrid's historic UEFA Champions League comeback vs Man City revealed


Yesterday saw Real Madrid pull off one of the most remarkable comebacks in recent UEFA Champions League history!

The kings of Europe took on Premier League giants Manchester City in the second leg of their semifinal tie and despite entering the final minutes with a 1-0 deficit, 5-3 on aggregate, meaning Ancelotti's men were headed for an exit, Los Blancos were able to turn things around.

Two dramatic goals from substitute Rodrygo in one minute – yes, ONE MINUTE – saw Ancelotti's side claw their way back into the tie in the final few minutes, forcing it into extra time. And five minutes into extra time, Karim Benzema netted the winning goal, scoring after being awarded a penalty to complete his team's unforgettable comeback, thus booking their ticket to the final where they will face Liverpool.

And this match sent shockwaves around the entire world, with everyone – fans, players and pundits alike – being left speechless by this result. Even Lionel Messi could not hold back his reaction, with the Argentine sending a private message to close friend and fellow countryman Sergio Aguero in regards to the remarkable result.

Manchester City icon Aguero, who was on ESPN alongside Oscar Ruggeri and Carlos Tevez to comment on the game, revealed to his co-workers for the day that La Pulga had sent him a text about the game. According to Marca's Santi Villahoz, the Premier League legend went on to disclose the content of the message.

"Leo is writing to me," Aguero told Tevez, as per the report, to which Carlos replied: "What is Leo saying?"

This came during the second half of extra time, meaning Real Madrid had already pulled off the comeback and simply needed to hold out, which they did, at the time of this message.

"Stop f**ing around, stupid... no way," Messi wrote to his close pal, Kun went on to confess.

Even the seven-time Ballon d'Or winner could not believe what he was witnessing. His reaction is interesting for two reasons, firstly due to his allegiance to Barcelona and his probable distaste for their El Clasico rivals. Additionally, having been on the receiving end of Real Madrid's first spectacular result, seeing his PSG side collapse at the Bernabeu in the round of 16, Leo might have preferred an elimination for the Spanish giants.

Yesterday's game will probably talked about for years, but with a UEFA Champions League final showdown with Liverpool approaching, Ancelotti's men will have to swiftly shift focus to completing the season before preparing for their battle with Klopp's heavyweights.
