Football insists on impressing us. It makes us go from euphoria to deep sadness. And the other way around. It all happened in this Manchester City 4-3 Tottenham, one of the most insane games of all time in the Champions League that booked the Spurs into the Semis. And in a cruel way for City’s supporters. The VAR was responsible for ruling out a 94th minute Raheem Sterling goal, that would give the qualification to Man City. The goal was legitimate ruled out, but it kinda killed the emotion of a heroic drama.

Just don’t try to understand what and how it all happened. With 21 minutes on the clock, City were already winning 3-2. Wow. 5 goals and 2 comebacks in just a matter of 21 minutes. Not even half of the first time. Sterling opened the scoring in a beautiful finish within four minutes. Son equalized at seven, in Laporte’s poor clearance and Ederson’s howler. The same South Korean put the Spurs ahead three minutes later, in a beautiful curled ball from the edge of the box that went straight to the top corner. Bernardo Silva equalized for City after his close-range effort deflected off Danny Rose. At last, at 21, de Bruyne crossed in the measure for Sterling to put the Citizens in front.

The game kinda slowed down due to this impetuous intensity at the early stages. At this point, Tottenham were still making it to the Semis, in the away-goal rule, as they beat City 1-0 at home last week. However, it all changed at 59 minutes, as Aguero scored his goal. Fernando Llorente, who is substituting the injured Harry Kane scored for Tottenham from a corner within 73 minutes. There were many complaints coming from City players for a possible handball from Llorente. The play was reviewed in the VAR, and later on, it was decided that the goal was legal.

The VAR helped the Spurs in a certain way. Llorente scored with his hip, but it has maybe slightly deflected off his arm. Furthermore, at 94 minutes, the capital play in the match. Christian Eriksen lost the ball, Bernardo passed it to Aguero, who fed Sterling to fire home past Hugo Lloris. The Etihad was pulsing, Pep Guardiola jumping around, all players celebrating, and lamentation coming from Spurs players. However, there was a certain VAR on City’s way. The goal was checked, and Aguero was offside before his pass to Sterling. Disallowed goal. Everything changed, literally from water to wine for Tottenham players, who had gained a lifeline.

Fair play to City, they fell with honor. Tottenham were lucky, but also competent enough to score four goals in one of the best teams in the world. Tottenham will now face Ajax in the UEFA Champions League Semifinals. Also, Tottenham and City will face each other again on this Saturday, at the same Etihad Stadium in the Premier League.
