NO GOAL AT BERNABEU AT THE BREAK!

It’s break at the Bernabeu! No goal between Real Madrid and Bayern Munich after 45 minutes of play in this Champions League semi-final second leg. The man of this first period was Manuel Neuer who allowed Real to stay afloat on three big chances!

Mazraoui’s shot well captured by Lunin

The ball was poorly returned by the Madrid defense and Mazraoui followed up with a powerful shot that Lunin caught very easily.

Bayern saved by Neuer

For the moment, Bayern Munich remains in this match thanks to Manuel Neuer, a situation which will not last long if this continues.

NEUER IS EXCEPTIONAL TONIGHT!

Superb and sneaky cross from Vinicius into the area! Nobody touches the ball and Manucel Neuer has to make a reflex save!

Real accentuates its domination

Very good free kick to come for Real Madrid well obtained by Vinicius. Toni Kroos will take care of it and just finds De Ligt’s head!

Vinicius makes the difference

What a player this Vinicius Junior who manages to infiltrate the defense, resists two defenders, but does not cross quickly enough.

Bellingham countered again

Jude Bellingham struggles at the front of the attack but his shots are blocked at the edge of the area.

Real puts pressure on

Real Madrid want to stifle their opponent by rotating the ball, notably thanks to the excellent Toni Kroos.

Good coverage of Nacho

Once again, Harry Kane, without looking, tries to send Sané deep but Nacho watches with a great return!

KANE NOT FAR FROM AN INCREDIBLE GOAL!

Kimmich crosses into the area but it is pushed back to Kane who volleys with his right foot! It’s not on target but Lunin diverts for a corner!

Vinicius’ failed return

Long ball towards Bellingham who hands it over to Vinicius as best he can! The Brazilian tries an acrobatic return but misses the ball!

Serge Gnabry will come out

First hard blow for Thomas Tuchel with the upcoming exit of Serge Gnabry. He is replaced by Alphonso Davies.

Carvajal brings down Kane

Harry Kane thought he would quickly play a counter-attack but Carvajal brought him down before preventing him from playing quickly.

Rodrygo forces his cross too much

Superb overflow from Rodrygo who waits in the area and sends a cross back too hard for Vinicius who misses his control!

Things are heating up between Mendy and Laimer

Mendy’s first foul on Sané and Laimer comes to heat him up! The French side pushes him a little, the referee intervenes to separate everyone.

It goes in all directions

After a very dangerous cross from Sané and a ball from Valverde, it was Bellingham’s turn to strike on goal. What a game !

Vinicius does not target his shot!

Superb acceleration from Real with a relay from Bellingham for Vinicius who doesn’t ask any questions and follows up with a curling shot! It’s pretty close!

THE MIRACLE FOR BAYERN!

Another story of posts with Carvajal who finds Vinicius in the area! The Brazilian continues with a cross shot which finds the post… It comes back to Rodrygo who puts the flat of his foot and stops Neuer!

Unbridled start to the match

Both teams decided to put a lot of rhythm into the start of the match and created a few scoring opportunities!

IT’S HOT ON THE OTHER SIDE!

Superb opening from Musiala in the race of Gnabry who throws himself to cross with a touch! Lunin goes down but no one touches the ball!

IT’S HEATING UP IN FRONT OF BAYERN’S GOAL!

Well shifted to the right of the area, Dani Carvajal crosses with one touch between the penalty spot and the goal line! Vinicius tackles but is too short, it was hot!

What a tackle from Kroos!

Ball recovered by Kane in the center of the field and he is close to being able to throw Sané deep! Toni Kroos comes out of nowhere and intercepts the pass with a magnificent tackle!

Sané calls for a foul

Explicitly surrounded by Ferland Mendy, Leroy Sané asks the referee Mr. Marciniak for a foul but he gets nothing.

Real already on the offensive

First corner for Real Madrid well obtained by Vinicius! Kroos takes it but it is returned by Gnabry far in front on Lunin.

REAL MADRID-BAYERN MUNICH KICK OFF!

Last act between Real Madrid and Bayern Munich for a place in the final and thus join Borussia Dortmund! In the first leg, the two European behemoths were unable to decide between themselves (2-2).

The players are arriving on the pitch!

The tension rises another notch with the entry of the 22 players onto the pitch at the Santiago Bernabeu! The Champions League anthem is lightly whistled by the Madrid public.

The Mister knows the last four of the LDC well

Carlo Ancelotti played in 9 Champions League semi-finals with three different clubs: four with AC Milan, four with Real Madrid and one with Juventus Turin. If he reached the milestone three times with the Lombards, he only achieved it twice with the Merengues and failed with the Piedmontese.

That is 5 qualifications in the final for 4 eliminations.

Madrid and Ancelotti no longer lose against Bayern

The Merengues have not lost any of their last 8 matches against the Germans (6 wins and 2 draws).

A dynamic that Carlo Ancelotti also knows against his former club since he is undefeated in 9 matches (6 wins and 3 draws) against the latter, a record for a coach against the same opponent in the Champions League.

Bayern’s lineup without Goretzka or Müller

Bayern’s eleven: Neuer – Kimmich, Dier, De Ligt, Mazraoui – Pavlovic, Laimer – Gnabry, Musiala, Sané – Kane.

Substitutes: Ulreich, Upamecano, Min-Jae, Goretzka, Choupo-Moting, Zaragoza, Davies, Müller, Tel.

The official lineup of Real Madrid with Bellingham and Tchouameni

Lunin – Carvajal, Rüdiger, Nacho, Mendy – Valverde, Tchouameni, Kroos – Bellingham – Vinicius, Rodrygo

Bayern: Goretzka should start on the bench according to the German press

According to the German daily Bild, midfielder Leon Goretzka should not start this Wednesday evening during this C1 semi-final return against Real Madrid. Replaced at the break in the first leg by Raphaël Guerreiro, it is the young Aleksandar Pavlovic who should start in the midfield alongside Konrad Laimer. In central defense, Matthijs de Ligt should return in place of Kim Min-Jae.
