The two miracles in the area of Manchester City champions of the Champions League: saving crossbar and the bad aim of Lukaku


Highlights: Manchester City beat Inter Milan 1-0 in the Champions League final in Istanbul. Rodri scored the opening goal for the Citizens. Federico Dimarco had two good chances to equalize for Inter. But both shots hit the crossbar or bounced off Romelu Lukaku. Manchester City are the new Champions League champions. The match will be shown live on BT Sport on Sunday at 8.30 p.m. local time (9.30 a.m BST) and on BT Sports 2 on Monday.

At a disadvantage the Milan team made a play that had everything: rebound on the crossbar and a shot that did not enter because it deviated in Lukaku.

After Manchester City opened the scoring with Rodri's goal that ended up making the difference for the Citizens to shout Champions League champions, Inter began to step on the opponent's field. In the first move to tie the game, he forced Pep Guardiola's team to defend with six players to take all the attacking positions of the Italian team.

And Manchester was saved by sheer luck. Because Lautaro Martinez dropped a ball to Federico Dimarco, who opened on the left and looked for his teammates with a center that deflected with the knee John Stones. However, the rebound was left to Marcelo Brozovic, who played again with the Italian, who returned first.

It was all control of Inter, the Croatian sent another center, this time more vertical, which deflected in his teammate Hakan Calhanoglu but the ball - again - was in the possession of the Milan team and Denzel Dumfries put a rained header that found Dimarco in front of the goalkeeper and tried to accommodate head over Ederson. The crossbar denied the saying that twice with his head in the area is a goal.

But there was another rebound and another chance for Inter: Dimarco tried to capitalize on it, the goalkeeper was on the floor, but the send bounced off Romelu Lukaku and the danger dissipated.

Minutes later again the Romanian had the chance to equalize, but again the Manchester area seemed to have a vibe contrary to Inter. The striker took an unbeatable shot that made the ball collide with Ederson: the goalkeeper this time had not had enough reflexes, but was fortunate to have his leg in the direction that the shot led.
