Real Madrid vs. Bayern Munich

  • Gareth Bale has a half-chance for Real Madrid

Bayern came back down the other flank and landed their first punch when Sergio Ramos failed to clear a cross and Kimmich gleefully knocked home from close range.

Yes, Real's recent European record is phenomenal and, yes, Zinedine Zidane is still yet to lose a knockout tie over three seasons in club football's most prestigious competition but they wobbled nearly uncontrollably here before somehow getting past Bayern Munich in an epic semi-final.

Cruelly, the goal would end up being the difference maker that keeps Bayern from advancing to the Champions League final.

Madrid responded, taking control of possession.

There was a real ebb and flow to the game with both sides having chances, but Bayern continued to look the most unsafe on the attack, and again looked sure to score just after the half hour mark when Muller headed the ball into the path of James after Lewandowski's shot was parried away by Navas.

He slid at the ball and it went under his arm and across the penalty area. But James subsequently ballooned the ball over the crossbar.

This is a reminder, if one was needed, that Sven Ulreich isn't Manuel Neuer.

James almost got his second goal about ten minutes later as he wound up at the top of the goal, but defender Raphael Varane made an important stop by throwing his body in front of James' attempt.

Bayern then found their second wind, with Alaba and Franck Ribery causing constant problems for Modric and Lucas Vasquez.

James Rodriguez, on loan from Madrid, hit a deserved equaliser for Bayern in the 63rd to set up a gripping finale but the Spaniards clung on despite waves of pressure from the visitors to become the first team since Juventus in 1998 to reach the final for three years in succession.

Navas made a great save from Tolisso and James nearly bagged himself a second.

Just like last week's 2-1 loss in Munich, the defining match again resulted in a ridiculous number of chances that went unconverted for the German side. Ball after ball came into the Madrid box as Bayern gave it all they had to get the goal to take them to the final, but Navas denied them time and time again.

"He has a lot of resources, when the game gets ugly he appears".
