This is the Bernabeu: Rodrygo's impossible double in 90th and 91st minute that shook the world

If anyone tries to understand the mystique that surrounds the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu and the stage fright it generates in its rivals on big nights in Europe? They will end up at a dead end.

With Real Madrid on the verge of kissing the canvas, Rodrygo Goes decided to pop up with an impossible brace that revived Carlo Ancelotti’s side. This is the Bernabeu… and “90 minuti son molto longo”.

“On certain nights its walls come alive,” a video published by Real Madrid TV ahead of the game claimed. “First it is a roar in a close and sacred place… like an echo that tinges your soul.

Shouts are heard and a liturgy is celebrated in which everyone believes.”

Rodrygo‘s first miracle came in the 90th minute. A cross from Eduardo Camavinga to the far post was picked out by Karim Benzema when it was impossible to think that he would be able to get the ball into the melee, but he did.

And Rodrygo, at the near post and after getting in front of everyone, poked past Ederson.

The Bernabeu did not have to wait long to witness the Brazilian’s second miraculous work. In the 91st minute, a cross from Dani Carvajal, which Marco Asensio touched slightly, ended up finding the head of Rodrygo and he sent the ball into the top corner.
