Bayern Munich win the first leg in a last minute goal, gaining the advantage on Real Madrid.
17' Franck Ribery
53' Mesut Ozil
90' Mario Gomez
Right were the hell do I begin with this match. Oh yes congratulating Bayern for playing a solid game and giving it their all the whole match. Did they deserve the win... I can't answer that without personal bias, I think that they deserved to tie but it doesn't matter now. Now what in the hell was Mou thinking, I KNEW IT! I F****** KNEW he gave up the match and decided to go for the tie as soon as he pulled Ozil for Marcelo. Ozil was the ONLY player other than benzema working his @ss off on the field and you award that by pulling him and putting in marcelo!?? If he wanted to seal at the back he should have switched Khedira for marcelo and bring in granero or kaka for ozil. Oh yeah Khedira is the worst, and i mean the WORST, the bottom feeder HE SUCKS! Sell him, let him go I don't care he shouldn't be a starter let alone wear the Real Madrid jersey. The man moved his his legs but he ran in place. The whole of Real Madrid got lucky tonight, this could have been a blow out. Sergio Ramos was awful, everyone was awful. I don't understand how mou has a star studded bench and he doesn't use it. You have KAKA, Higuain, callejon(whom he didn't call for the match but still). Mou decided to park the bus once again and the team payed the price. I don't see Bayern scoring more than one goal at the Bernabeu but I don't see RM scoring three to get tie and extra time. End Rant.
Jesus dude calm down, 2-1 is not a bad score for Madrid as a 1-0 victory at the Bernabeu would send them through and stop complaining about Mourinho, Real Madrid knew what they were in for when they got him, this is what he's all about, this is the way he always plays at this stage of the competition which is how he won the Champions League twice, live with it.
go bother buddymagoo on his man u news. If you don't like the rant too bad, i'm just expressing my thoughts as a fan. the chances that madrid will win 1-0 are slim. I highly doubt they wont score.
You can't count on Bayern NOT scoring, Real Madrid has it tough back at home.
Yeah that's the spirit, Madrid have no chance, Bayern are going to destroy them and I can't wait.
2-1 is a decent result for Madrid. I would actually take that over a 0-0 for example. An away goal is a precious thing, and being one behind means you have to actually go and attack to win the tie. You can't just sit back thinking you can possibly conserve it. Being one goal behind but having an away goal means Madrid are still favourites to go through. Madrid didn't play so well but the fact is they have scored at home i think all but one game this season and on average they have scored 3 goals at home every game! You would put money on them scoring wouldn't you.
I agree with you on Marcelo subing Ozil, what a shitty move! Ozil was a complete menace to bayern throughout the whole match, trying to leave it at a tie when bayern was creating chances from the get-go was a dumb move by Mourinho. We'll see how they perform at home.

Ribery s goal offside?
Not at all!! Don`t blame the ref for that desission. It was correct desission
it was offside
well in my opinion it can be offside and it cant. He is in an offside position, what is the determining factor is wether he participated in the play by getting in the way of the keeper. My opinion, he didnt, pretty much everyone was on his way so he didnt actually do anything to affect the outcome. Still its pretty much left to interpretation. On the other hand, i do think that the foul on Gomez was a penalty, maybe Ramos got to the ball, but Coentrao certainly didnt. Finally, i think its absurd that Marcelo didnt receive a red card, personally i cant stand him, he is one of the least profesional players i know, and not sending him off when he hits players for no reason is not going to make him change any time soon
Onilink you are 100% right. wantedboys clearly does not understand the rules. The commentators would have mentioned if he was offside.
it was offside. ive seen decisions like that been given before. Onlink, your analysis is flawed. "...what is the determining factor is wether he participated in the play by getting in the way of the keeper. My opinion, he didnt, pretty much everyone was on his way so he didnt actually do anything to affect the outcome. " thats just it, if everyone was in the keepers way, be it team mates or opposition, the fact is, if an opposing player is in an offside position in the action of it all, he is offside. he had an "Active" role in the goal. <Jumping over the ball>. so it doesnt matter if everyone was his the keepers way or if he was the only one. point is, he was active and he was offside. but like i said, ive seen decisions like this been given offside so Bayern were lucky on that. they played a better game overall in my opinion. but i must say i was shocked and annoyed at Ribery falling all over the place like he been shot. i expected that from Real when they went 1 nil down but for ribery to do such things on the half way line was just annoying to watch. Trying to get players sent off and yellow carded deserves a yellow card in itself <i think>. players can get themselves in trouble <think marcello>.
No it wasnt. If alaba touched the ball the it is. But he wasnt. Hence the scoreboard is riberys, not alaba
An entertaining match where bayern deserved victory! It will be a tremendous return settlement, but I think bayern will take the longest straw. They want so mutch playing the final "home"
Bayern a team that can not win the German League this year because they are second 8 points behind league leaders. And they say the Spanish league is the best, lol. I think what this goes to show is any team can be beat and this is what football is about! Well done Bayern.
I'm sorry last I checked your beloved man u is only in line to win a single title this season. Let alone win the Europa league.
Yeah and what? So is yours! Bayern is the first really good side Madrid have faced this season apart from Barça, who beat them twice at their own ground, and they were shown for the average disjointed team they are. They bully the rest of la liga teams and Bayern contained them comfortably tonight.
Currently the Spanish league IS the best. Correct me if I'm wrong but looking at both the Champions League and Europa League, it's highly possible for both to be an all Spanish final. I think that says something doesn't it? And now to comment on the match. Howard Webb is a freaking joke lol. He made some very strange decisions by not even granting that red card which was clearly in place. He's a disgrace to referees in general and the laughing stock of English arbitration.
it doesnt necessarily mean that la liga is the best league but the teams are very competitive in those european leagues..
that is subjective, I think the EPL is much better personally.
I personally don't like Webb but he had a good game
They arethe best bue the least entertaining between the 4. The gap between the big 2 and the others are waaay too far. I cant feel the competition anymore.
Sorry Buddymango but Man Utd fanboys cant hold an argument about teams not performing in Europe :)
Bayern along with Real and Barca are Europe's top teams. To be honest German league is on the rise teams like Dortmund will soon be up there with the best. They have so many talented young players.
"yeah and what? So is yours" Last i checked were still in a position to compete for our league and the champions.
Real Madrid have not been to a final of the Champions league in 9 years! Yes, NINE YEARS! Then even if you do get there which looks unlikely you are not going to beat Barca.
This game was upsetting but I have confidence we'll come back strong. Ozil for Marcelo was so stupid. I thought he was going to switch out Coentrao! And I was right he cost us that last goal with that pathetic defensive display on Lahm. Like I said either start Ronaldo, Benzema AND Higuain OR have Benzema come off the bench!! I don't understand Mourinho sometimes. Oh and geez I thought some Barcelona players were bad!! Ribery takes the damn cake!!!! I was actually hoping someone would actually take his legs out to make up for all that diving! Edit: And Granero?! You have Kaka sitting right there!
well i think another problem is the fact that Ronaldo is untouchable, which i find absurd... i dont understand how mourinho doesnt have the balls to take him out when he has a bad game. Honestly, he didnt do anything in the match, and the assist came more from Benzema really pushing himself in the entire game, than Ronaldo just receiving the pass by luck
it should have been like 5-1 in Bayern's favour. Bayern played really solid. They deserved a win.
Bayern deserved the win pure and simple, it should of been 3-1 with a penalty awarded to gomez with that ridiculous coentrao foul. Bayern played good free flowing play and was tight in defence (aside the conceded goal)madrid on the other hand played disjointed and were everywhere. Bayern for the win
Couldny sgree more, that was a clear dirty tackle against gomez, its so weird the linesman didnt call it
It's not even Ronaldo's fault, what can he do when Mourinho decides to defend and play long balls up to him, he's not magic he's the second best player in the world. I actually thought Howard Webb did okay, he missed a couple of dives from Ribery, and maybe Arebloa should have been booked but tbh Marcelo was probably just about a yellow, it was a stupid kick rather than overly dangerous using studs, and as for the penalty it would have been harsh since Ramos had won the ball before Coentrao came flying in to take Gomez out. Coentrao had a horror show all game though. Motm for me is Toni Kroos, he's like a much, much, much better Aaron Ramsey!
Bayern destroyed them. Madrid cannot hang with them.
The game at Bernabeu will be diffrent. Real has what it takes to win the tie. Let's see how Bayern's young defence will cope when Real will go for it.
Very unexpected result, i was so sure that 'Real Madrid' will take the game. Well Played 'Bayern Munich'.
madrid always concede goals at home, they've been doing it all season. so bayern will probably score atleast 1 goal.
