Real Madrid narrowly qualify into the Champions League final

Real Madrid have qualified into the Champions League final after playing out a 2-2 draw against Bayern Munich at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Both teams evenly matched each other as the Bavarians took the lead through Joshua Kimmich in just three minute played in the match.

The German international took advantage of a sloppy defending from Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane to put the visitors ahead.


Los Blancos responded after Marcelo drilled in a cross from the left to find Benzema who headed home to make it 1-1.

Just after the restart of the second period it was Benzema again who took advantage of a defensive blunder from Bayern as Madrid went ahead by 2-1 on the night.

The German champions did not rest there as they mounted pressure on the home side and it finally paid off.

Former Real star James Rodriguez put Bayern level in the match in the 63rd minute as the Germans just needed one more goal to seal the the tie.

It became 2-2 on the night. Chances came begging for Bayern but Keylor Navas was Real’s hero on the night as he denied several attempts made on goal.

The Costa Rican made eight saves in total in the match.

The referee finally ended the match in the seventh minute after the 90 as Real Madrid qualified into their third final in four years.

The match ended in a 4-3 aggregate scoreline to the home side as Cristiano Ronaldo failed to score for the second consecutive match.

The Bernabeu outfit will await the outcome of Liverpool’s tie against Roma at the Stadio Olympico on Wednesday.
