The panenka penalty is like the drop shot in tennis, it should just not be executed wherever one feels like it. Kun Aguero’s attempt at it is akin to playing disco music at a funeral. City 1-0 up with half time approaching in seconds,Sterling winning the penalty off Gilmour and if converted that was the title right there for the Cityzens.
Chelsea have been transformed under Tuchel and they were the better side in the second half. Should Pep have rested De Bruyne?City defense looked vulnerable to crosses particularly from Reece James. Rodrigo had a nightmare in the City defensive mid position and you could have been forgiven for thinking Gilmour was the seasoned player.
Champions league Final is not a foregone conclusion , not by any stretch.
