Peter Drury's spine-tingling commentary made Real Madrid's win vs Man City even more epic

Peter Drury was at his poetic best as Real Madrid booked their place in the 2021-22 Champions League final with a remarkable victory over Manchester City at the Bernabeu.

The Brit, who provides commentary of Premier League and Champions League matches for a global audience, is arguably the most popular and revered commentator working in football right now.

Regardless of how big the occasion is and whatever drama unfolds, he always seems to find the right words.

Drury was on commentary duty for CBS Sports for Wednesday’s extraordinary semi-final second leg between Madrid and City.

Pep Guardiola’s City were on the brink of booking their place in the final when two late goals from substitute Rodrygo turned the game on its head.

Karim Benzema then scored the winner from the penalty spot in extra-time to leave their English opponents shell-shocked.

Real Madrid will now face Liverpool in this season’s Champions League final on May 28 in Paris.

When the full-time whistle went, Drury said: “The night of the Real resurrection! The pure white shirts have shimmered spectacularly once again. And Real Madrid are Paris-bound. Real Madrid will play the big game again. The love affair goes on. Improbably, miraculously, impossibly, beyond their dreams, their expectations, and Pep does not know where to look!

“For the 17th time, this club of glitz and legend will go to the final of the European Cup. Blink it back, 6-5.”
