For the third consecutive time in this season's edition of the Champions League, Los Blancos were on the brink of elimination as it looked like Manchester City were on their way to their second straight final.
Riyad Mahrez's 73rd minute strike seemed to seal Real's fate, but young Brazilian Rodrygo would throw a spanner in the works by coming off the bench and scoring in the 90th and 91st minute to force extra-time.
Karim Benzema then extended his lead as the competition's top goalscorer in this campaign when he slotted in a penalty five minutes into extra-time with what proved to be the decisive goal of the tie as Los Blancos secured their passage to their first Champions League final since the 2017/18 campaign.
Former City striker Sergio Aguero, in conjunction with ESPN, was hired to analyse the game via a live stream, and he was joined by compatriots Oscar Ruggeri and Carlos Tevez as they watched the match unfold.
During the stream, the Citizens' all-time leading goalscorer revealed that he had received a text message from his friend Messi pertaining to the match.
Aguero told Tevez during the stream, "Leo writes to me", as per Marca.
"What does Leo say ..." Tevez replied.
Aguero then replied by saying, "Stop screwing around, a**hole... it can't be", with the seven-time Ballon d'Or winner referencing Real's monumental comeback.
Tevez then responded by saying, "It's crazy, you can't win another game like that. We played and this is the truth..."
Carlo Ancelotti's men will now look to win the club's 14th European Cup as they prepare to take on Liverpool at the Stade de France on 28 May. The final will be a repeat of the 2017/18 edition, which Real were 3-1 victors in.
