PEEP! PEEEP! PEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP!

What a fascinating match that was. A moment of idiocy (a couple actually) from Javi Martinez ensured that Real Madrid were given the upper hand. Once they took it, they never looked like giving it up. 

Cometh the hour, Cometh the man. This Cristiano Ronaldo is an absolute Champion. 

This tie is very much Real Madrid's to lose and the Bernabeu will be THE place to be next week. 

It was an absolute pleasure covering this game, thank you for the company!

'til later Anirudh Menon signing out. 

Toodle-oooo
...
93' THIS IS THE RONALDO SHOW! He heads one out to Asensio who plays it back... Ronaldo then picks out James with a superb chip and he returns the favour with a superb dink. Ronaldo should make it three.... but he trips over his own feet. OW
...
92' This is almost painful to watch. Real Madrid are doing as they please in the middle of the Allianz Arena. 
...
90' Kovacic is on for Modric.... and RAMOS PUTS THE BALL INTO THE NET... BUT HE IS MILES OFFSIDE!!! Great call from the assistant. 
...
89'  Douglas Costa is stopped in his tracks by Asensio, and Real break yet again. James tries to pick out Ronaldo in the box - but Bayern scramble it clear. Real pass the ball around... and Vidal gets a yellow for smashing through Modric. The Chilean is losing his head one strand of hair at a time here. That Mohawk looks half of what it was in the beginning of the game. 
...
87' Marcelo works his way behind Lahm and Ronaldo sneakily loses Bernat in the middle, but the Portuguese superstar just cant get the ball under his control. This is immense football from Madrid, though. No signs of any complacency here
...
86' Real Madrid are totally and utterly dominating the game now with Ronaldo and Asensio fluid in their movement across the front line. This is death by a 1000 passes right now.  
...
84' Costa tries to pick out Robben as Bayern break 2v2 , but the immense figure of Sergio Ramos is there in the right place at the right time. 
...
83' the excellent Karim Benzema is taken off to be replaced with a man who has more than a point or three to prove. James immediately gets into the action swinging one into Asesnio who does well to race into the box  and pump one in. Marcelo kills the move by giving away a freekick on Boateng. 
...
82' Arjen Robben Arjen Robbens his way onto the edge of the box but his shot is straight at Navas.... Real counter at pace and Dani Carvajal Leo Messis his way into the box, before laying it out to Marcelo whose shot is as wild as his hair
...
79' Ronaldo embarks on a meandering run down the right, before smashing a square ball that Marcelo picks up. The Brazilian has enough time to control the ball, and smash a volley inches wide
...
78'  Real Madrid are walking through Bayern... Robben is the lone resistor, but he is simply outnumbered in the Madrid third. 
...
OH WHAT A GOAL. MARCO ASENSIO SWINGS IN A SUPERB CROSS THAT RONALDO SMASHES IT IN WITH THE UNDERSIDE OF HIS BOOT! WHAT A GOAL
...
76' GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOALL! RONAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALDO!
...
74' Real Madrid are toying with Bayern Munich in the fashion of cat playing with its food. The bal is worked out to Ronaldo who is FREE inside the box, but his super snapshot is SAVED INCREDIBLY by Neuer....
...
71' Carvajal releases Benzema into the box, but the Frenchman's powerful toe-poke is well saved by Neuer.... from the corner, the ball is worked out to Asensio - who's left footed shot doesn't have nearly enough power to trouble the big German. 
...
70' Another Real Madrid counter... another chance for Benzema and the Frenchman puts his header well high. 
...
69' Some superb one-touch football from Robben and Mueller, but the Dutchman is prevented from progressing by some brilliant mopping up from Casemiro  
...
68' Ronaldo is released through on goal by Marcelo but Alaba forces him wide. The Madrid goalscorer tries to square it but Boateng gets in the way
...
67' Robben is allowed to cut in, but Kroos and Casemiro do wonderfully well to block his sight-to-goal. Superb defending from the Madrid collective.
...
66' The Madrid captain is in action at the other end too as he does ever so well to marshall Arjen Robben out... if he'd missed that challenge Robben would have been through on goal - bringing with it all that such a scenario entails. 
...
65' Sergio Ramos takes it! AND CURLS IT JUST WIDE!!! 
...
64' Benzema runs at Boateng, but Vidal smashes a tackle in. Real come right back and Benzema's cut back is behind Ramos and Ronaldo... where Ribery gives away a cheap hand-ball. He's immediately taken off for Douglas Costa. 
...
63' Carlo Ancelotti has to make a sub and he brings off his midfield general Xabi Alonso and throws on Juan Bernat. This means Alaba moves into the centre. Bayern move forward, but another loose Muller touch kills of the move and Real counter...
...
62' Robben Robbens his way into the middle of the pich but his pitch wedge into the box reaches no one in particular. 
...
61' RED CARD! JAVI MARTINEZ! This is so very stupid from the Basque... after having dragged Ronaldo down near the halfway line YET AGAIN. Come on, man!  
...
59' Benzema is released in behind Lahm and Martinez by a cheeky Marcelo ball, but the Frenchman was just offside as he received it.  
...
57' Bayern are getting a touch panicky now, and after having lost possession rather cheaply in the middle of the field, Javi Martinez picks up a yellow for dragging back Ronaldo. Zidane makes his first substitution as he replaces Bale by Marco Asensio. 
...
56' The corner from Kroos creates an element of confusion, but Thiago Alcantara works the ball out with almost supernatural calmness. 
...
55' UFF! Vidal ALMOST picks out Muller with a superb pass but Nacho does superbly to intercept... Madrid counter.. OH BALE!!! The Welshman steals in between Boateng and Martinez and he thumps a nice little Modric cross straight at Neuer, who still has to be at his best to tip it over. WHAT A CHANCE!
...
54' Real Madrid appear content to sit back and counter when they have the chance... Benzema does the latter and shows some tricky feet but Boateng stands in his way. Real Madrid recover the ball and start pinging it around...
...
53' Alaba runs at Carvajal, and does well to win a corner... which Ribery plays short... Bayern lose possession eventually after an uncharacteristically loose Robben pass. 
...
52' Robben still looks the most dangerous player on the pitch - he runs around the Real Madrid midfield, but he can't force his way into the box. 
...
51' Modric plays in Bale and he speeds past Boateng like the latter doesn't exist. He cuts it back to Ronaldo - but for once his first touch lets him down. 
...
50' Robben runs into the box, bullies - ABSOLUTELY BULLIES - Ramos onto the groudn before passing it to Ribery. The Frenchman's cut back is frantically cleared by Ramos.  
...
OH MY! WHAT A FINISH! WHAT A FINISH! Carvajal powers forward onto the Modric freekick and smacks one into the box where Ronaldo smashes it into the corner of the net with an INCREDIBLE first time volley. WOOF!
...
47' GOAAAAAAAAAAAL!!!! RONAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALDOOOOOOOOOO
...
46' Dani Carvajal overpowers Frank Ribery and the ball is pumped right back into the Bayern half - where there is no one to collect... Madrid then wins a freekick by Xabi Alonso casually puts his hand across Luka Modric, and its a foul
...
PEEP! PEEP! We're off! Let's all hope that the second 45 is just as good, if not better than the first. 

I would loved to have been a fly on the wall in that Real Madrid dressing room. Let's see who's motivated their troops better - master or apprentice?
...
PEEP! PEEEEEP! HALFTIME!

Bayern lead 1-0 thanks to Arturo Vidal, but the Chilean missed a penalty that really could have put the ball to death. 

This is all set up for an incredibly fascinating second half. 

CAN NOT WAIT FOR THE SECOND HALF. Grab a coffee, and meet me back here for the remainder of this
