Manchester City Fans Criticised For Their Reactions To Goals During Epic Champions League Game

Manchester City fans have been criticised for their reactions to two goals during the Champions League epic semi final first leg with Real Madrid on Tuesday night.


The two sides played out one of the best games in recent history in a back and forth thriller, in which momentum swung between both teams on multiple occasions.

City would have gone away from the 4-3 win disappointed with themselves, having led by two goals on three occasions, only to head into the second leg with only a one goal lead.

There was plenty for the crowd to be excited by during the game, with a match of ridiculous quality, however the fans have actually been criticised by rival fans.

Footage of City supporters celebrating Kevin de Bruyne's opening goal, the fastest ever in a Champions League semi final, didn't go down well due to the lack of 'limbs,' and the fans recording instead of celebrating.

Pep Guardiola certainly gave an entertaining reaction to one of Real's goal, as he fell to his knees once Vinicius Junior had skinned Fernandinho.

The City boss clearly knew what was coming as the forward left his fellow countryman in the dust before slotting home to make it 3-2.

However the reactions of the City fans to another Real goal didn't go down well at all with criticism this time being that they were taking pictures of Karim Benzema celebrating.

City fans will be excited to head to Madrid next week when there won't be any fans to be criticised as it'll only be the hardcore turning up to the Bernabeu.

They'll at least have the experience of going to the Spanish capital and defending a one goal lead, having already done that against Atletico Madrid in the previous round.

Carlo Ancelotti's team also know how to turn things around in a tie, having been two goals down to PSG in the last 16, before Benzema's hat-trick turned things around.
