PEEP! PEEP! PEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP!

BAYERN MUNICH 1 -2 REAL MADRID

That, then, is very much that. An odd match that saw Bayern dominate almost for the entirety of the match, Ribery unplayable on the left, James up for a battle and a half, but Real Madrid are just 
the team in this competition. They walked through the first half, and managed the second one absolutely brilliantly. 

Theirs to lose, this tie. 

Thank you for your company! Anirudh Menon signing off... 

Toodle-ooo!
...
93' Ribery rips around Vazquez for the 7895th time tonight, but his ball into the box is handled superbly by Navas 
...
92' Magnificent from Vazquez as he bullies Ribery off the ball... but Modric dawdles on it and gets robbed. An incensed Ronaldo chases and harries but can't get the ball back off four Bayern players. HE WANTS A GOAL!
...
91' FOUR MINUTES ADDED! Madrid counter into space down the right, Benzema finding Ronaldo... but the ref spots that he's offisde and calls play back. 
...
90' Widely respected inside-forward Marcelo dances inside Hummels' challenge, tries to weave away from Sule and gets bundled to the ground with contemptous ease. Bayern move forward immediately, Ribery lifts one into the far post where Tolisso can't keep it in. 
...
89' Real Madrid are on the ropes here - Lewandowski almost slips in Muller, but Ramos sweeps up superbly. Madrid look to counter through the underrated dribbling of Kovacic - and Thiago smashes into him. Yellow for the Bayern no.6
...
88' OH, MY GOOD LORD LEWANDOWSKI!!! WHAT THE! Tolisso slips him in behind the Madrid box, Lewa times his run superbly, he dinks it over Navas... and away from the goal. What a miss that could prove to be. UFF!
...
86' The freekick is headed out by Varane - Kimmich tries to belt it first time from outside the box, but a mass of black shirts close down the shot superbly
...
85' Kovacic attempts a fancy dribble out of pressure but three Bayern players converge on him and quite literally bully the ball off him... Bayern move forward quickly and Ribery wins his 1,956th freekick off the night down that left flank
...
84' It's all a bit scrappy as Bayern look to inject a sense of urgency into their game. It's something they haven't had to do all season long - and it's showing. 
...
83' Kovacic on for the rather shoddy Casemiro. Why risk a first career red card, eh? Which also means that Gareth Bale will remain on the bench. Out of favour? You bet
...
BY GOD MARCELO's CONTROL...
...
...
81' Isco was suffering from a shoulder problem apparenlty, and hence the early change - whatever it was, Asensio's certainly made Madrid a better team in this half. 
...
80' James curls it in, Varane thumps it out. The homeside manage to recycle possession without giving away a goal
...
79' Ribery runs at Vazquez, who's the right back now, and wins another corner. 
...
78' Thiago plays the ball out deep, once again - they are targetting this - where Sule wins the header easily, but the knockdown is hacked clear by Vazquez 
...
77' Casemiro does what Casemiro does and bounces James Rodriguez off the ball as the Colombian looked to charge through the Madrid third... yellow for the Brazilian.
...
76' OH BENZEMA! The Frenchman races past Hummels with ludicrous ease - before belting a shot at goal that Ulreich does superbly to save. This is a fascinating contest. 
...
75' Bayern take off their shield - they must. Javi Martinez off, Bayern Munich record signing Corentin Tolisso on!
...
74' Thiago and Modric get in a bit of a tangle, the Catalan-Brazilian walks away with the ball, but Kuiper sees that as an illegal win; and it's a freekick for Madrid - which is well headed away by Hummels. Varane's follow-up is too high, even for Ronaldo
...
73' Benzema looks to break - Casemiro up in company - but Rafinha does well to cut out the Frenchman's attempted ball. 
...
72' OHOHOHOHOH! CONTROVERSY! OR IS IT? Luka Modric floats a delightful ball that Ronaldo controls with his bicep before smashing it past Ulreich. Great finish, illegal control. Kuiper's having none of it. 
...
71' Marcelo intercepts a loose Kimmich ball - the poor lad's had a terrible second half - and feeds Ronaldo. The counter is on, but the Portuguese just can't find the right ball. Not his day. Yet. 
...
70' The corner's played short, and it's rubbish.
