Real Madrid in their third Consecutive final, Bayern very disappointed

MADRID- Bayern Munich coach Jupp Heynckes said his team played their best match for years but were undone by a mistake from goalkeeper Sven Ulreich to allow Real Madrid to reach the Champions League final.

“We are very disappointed,” Heynckes said. “My team played an outstanding game. I haven’t seen Bayern play as well as that for years.

“At this high level you can’t make the sort of mistakes we made after half-time.”

The unfortunate mistake by goalkeeper Ulreich gifted Real striker Karim Benzema his second goal of the match just one minute after the second half, the keeper completely misjudged the back pass which the striker pounced on, to score in the empty net.

James Rodriguez equalised for Bayern in the 63rd minute but despite this Real go through 4-3 on aggregate after the game ended 2-2 in the second leg.

Controversy at the end of the game after Real defender Marcelo admitted a handball, he said, ” It’s a handball, it hit me on the hand and I think it’s a penalty,” he told reporters, “If I say it didn’t hit me I’d be lying, but football is like that.

“I don’t talk about referees, but it’s clear that sometimes they go in your favour and other times against you, but whatever happens, you have to play football.”
