Real Madrid 1-0 Bayern. Nine goals in ten matches for Cristiano Ronaldo in the Champions League this season and he sent Neuer the wrong way – placing it perfectly into the bottom right corner.
Real Madrid 2-0 Bayern. Ronaldo given SO much space as Ozil picked him out and just inside the box he calmly slid the ball past Neuer.
Cristiano Ronaldo now has 56 goals in 51 games this season.
Real Madrid 2-1 Bayern. I really mean squeezed it in. Casillas got his gloves to it but couldn’t push it away and it crept in off the left-hand post. Game one.
HT: Real Madrid 1-2 Bayern Munich. After a scintillating start it looked as though Real were crusing into the final but Robben’s penalty has put the cat among the pigeons. It’s 3-3 on aggregate with all to play for in the second half.
If Bayern score again, Real will need two more to go through. The Bavarians have progressed on away goals four times before, more than any other club in Champions League history.
Final 90th minute..Extra time will be playing
Real Madrid 2-1 Bayern Munich. It’s a war of attrition, Bayern looking the most likely to make the breakthrough, Gomez missing a great chance in the second half. It’s still so tough to call. Let’s hope it gets a little more open and less nervy in extra-time.
Real Madrid 2-1 Bayern Munich (Bayern win 3-1 on pens). So, the anticipated Barca v Real Madrid final does not come to pass – quite the opposite. It’s Bayern Munich v Chelsea on May 19 as the Bundesliga side look to become the first club to win the European Cup at their home stadium in almost 50 years.
Real Madrid penalties missed by Ronaldo, Kaka and Ramos. Schweinsteiger the man who converted the key spot-kick.
That means in 2006, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and now 2012 – a first-leg defeat has led to elimination for Real Madrid. The curse continues.
