Asensio scores a fine individual goal, dribbling this way & that, past the exhausted Hummels & to the right before stroking a composed finish into the bottom right corner. They’ve really shown Bayern here!

The irrepressible Marcelo creates the clincher with a stunning drive through the heart of the weary Bayern defence. He bursts through the middle, draws Neuer & rolls the ball to lớn the right for Ronaldo, who’s probably offside as he completes his hat-trick.

“Was that handball as well as offside?” asks my colleague, Rob Smyth. I need to lớn see it again, but would it surprise you?

This is another disgrace from the officials, who have been an utter shambles tonight. Ramos lifts a straight ball into the middle for Ronaldo, who’s about two yards offside. The flag stays down và Ronaldo turns before shooting past Neuer with his left foot.

We will have extra-time. Real Madrid will fancy themselves agains the 10 men of Bayern Munich now.

84 min: This is a poor decision. Vidal clearly wins the ball as he slides in khổng lồ win the ball off Asensio, but Viktor Kassai sees differently and shows the Chilean, who missed a penalty in the first leg, a second yellow. Oh dear. Bayern will be livid when they see that back.

This is absurd! What a farce! Real Madrid’s lead lasted barely a minute và it’s been wiped out in astonishingly comical circumstances! A long punt into the Real area caused incredible mayhem. Muller & Lewandowski attempted to lớn combine, but Nacho got in the way. The ball trundled off his feet, though, & hit Ramos’s shins. Navas didn’t know whether to come or go. Ramos stood still. Time stood still. The ball didn’t. The ball kept rolling. Away from Ramos. Past Navas. Into the net! We’re heading for extra-time!

What’s he done tonight? Not much. Other than score another decisive goal, that is. Casemiro finds space on the right và drifts an inviting ball to lớn the far post. Ronaldo’s got the run on Lahm & he powerfully thuds a low header past Neuer. Bayern need a goal to lớn force extra-time now.

Robert Lewandowski shows Arturo Vidal how it’s done, casually sending Keylor Navas the wrong way! Real Madrid are ahead on away goals, but one goal for Bayern will bởi it now!

52 min: Arjen Robben runs into the Real Madrid area on the left và dribbles around Casmeiro, who naively hangs out a leg and brings the winger down! The referee points to the spot and Bayern have a wonderful chance to lớn give themselves hope!

An entertaining half draws to a close. Bayern have 45 minutes to lớn score two goals, else they’re out of the Champions League. They’ve had their chances, most of them in the first 20 minutes, but they look exceedingly vulnerable at the back.

Hello. For some teams, winning isn’t everything. For some teams, not winning simply makes them an even better story. Think of Hungary in 1954, Holland in 1974, Brazil in 1982 & England in 2016. They won a lot along the way, but they didn’t win enough và they didn’t win the matches that mattered, và in the over that made them losers - if you think winning is everything. If you don’t, then those teams will hold a special place in your heart because they made football fun lớn watch, which is more or less the reason we’re all here in the first place. It is, after all, only a game.

But no one seems lớn have told Real Madrid. You get the sense that they’d regard that kind of loser talk as the doomed, pathetic witterings of a hopeless, foolish dreamer at the Bernabeu, where the guiding ethos very much is about the accumulation of trophies. Forget about trying khổng lồ redefine the game, seems to be the message coming from the Spanish capital, there’s no point trying khổng lồ beat Barcelona at their own game; let’s beat them and the rest at our own. The philosophy doesn’t matter - winning does. They might be the champions of Europe & they might be top of La Liga, they might have Sergio Ramos, Luka Modric, Toni Kroos and Karim Benzema & They have Gareth Bale và Cristiano Ronaldo và so many talented players that James Rodriguez barely gets a trò chơi any more, and their manager might be The Zinedine Zidane, but as long as they win, they don’t really care if they leave you or me cold.

It can make them hard khổng lồ warm to, that sense that they aren’t quite as committed khổng lồ web7_setting the pulse racing as Barcelona are, and that cold focus on victory does have the effect of making them one of the more inscrutable đứng top sides of the past few years. Working them out isn’t easy. Are they actually good? The answer is obviously yes. But are they good? Are they good in the way Pep Guardiola’s Barcelona were good? Are they good in the way they were around the turn of the century? If not, vị they even care? and should we care if they don’t? Should we care if it often looks like they don’t know what they’re doing? Does Zidane? bởi the players? Or are they just lucky khổng lồ possess more individual talent than almost anyone else?

Just what is there lớn admire about the European champions? It’s a provocative question. A bit of a stupid one, too. One thing lớn admire about the European champions is that they’re, er, the European champions. They might still be the European champions come the kết thúc of the season, not lớn mention the champions of Spain, và that’s because they’re bloody hard lớn beat. Few teams are as dangerous as this lot when they’re chasing a game.

It happened on the weekend, when they fought back from 2-1 down to lớn win at Sporting Gijon in the last minute, and it happened in Munich last Wednesday. Indebted khổng lồ Arturo Vidal for Jaap Stamming a penalty that would have given Bayern Munich a 2-0 lead at half-time, Madrid took control of the tie in the second half. Cristiano Ronaldo didn’t vì much, but he scored twice and got Javi Martinez sent off. Job done.

Well, almost. Madrid are the hot favourites khổng lồ go through after winning 2-1 in Germany. Bayern have it all lớn do & the weight of history is against them: in 61 years & eight months, only six teams have reached the next round after losing the first leg of a European Cup tie at home. The good web7_news for Bayern is that they should have Robert Lewandowski back from injury & he usually gives Madrid the heebie-jeebies. All is not lost for Carlo Ancelotti’s side, who certainly have the attack to lớn make it a nervy night at the Bernabeu. They’re capable of scoring twice & we could be in for a classic if the Germans get the first goal. Then they’ll face the unenviable task of keeping their foot on Madrid’s throat.
