Shortly after that, Franck Ribery is a huge chance for the 2-0, but the Frenchman showed – completely detached – a pass from Thiago Alcantara of his foot jump which Navas was able to save.

Losts of Rafinha led after one hour of play the 1-2 in the. The Brazilian put the ball around the half way line down for Marco Asensio, who is rapidly the combination with Vazquez was looking for. Free for the keeper, substitute Asensio beautifully.
Bayern fight in vain
Through Ribery (shot-inverting) and Müller (header against team-mate Lewandowski) was Bayern even close to the 2-2, but that hit wasn’t for the Germans. Another of Madrid’s substitute, Karim Benzema, was even on the way to the 1-3, but Ulreich prevented greater damage for Bayern.
