- Manchester City vs QPR – Premier League
The 2012 Premier League season’s last match day was full of madness. With both the Manchester teams on 86 points, City led the league on superior goal difference. City just needed a win to lift the premier league trophy for the first time in 44 years and were favourites to do say as they played relegation threatened QPR at home. United travelled to Sunderland for their last match of the season.
City dominated the match, and opened through Pablo Zabaleta in the 39th minute of the match. But the citizens were punished shortly after the break, as an error from Lescott helped Cisse to level things up. Joey Barton was sent-off against his former team for a rash challenge on Carlos Tevez. But despite the numerical advantage, the Etihad stadium was stunned in the 66th minute, as Mackie put QPR ahead.
News from Sunderland suggested that Manchester United had already won their match 1-0. The match entered stoppage time and United had already started celebrating their title victory, as City desperately needed two goals to win the title. And when it all looked over for the sky blue outfit, City produced one of the most stunning comebacks in the premier league history.
First City equalized through substitute Edin Dzeko in the 92nd minute of the match to give City that vital hope of a revival. And just two minutes later, City’s star forward Sergio Aguero scored his 23rd league goal, and arguably the most important one to win the league for City, and denying United their 20th league title.
