Real Madrid reaches 3rd straight Champions League final

02 May 2018

Franck Ribery has issued a battle cry before Tuesday's Champions League semifinal second leg at Real Madrid where Bayern Munich know they must be ruthless in front of goal to stage an unlikely comeback. These unconverted opportunities and errors culminated when keeper Sven Ulreich slipped at the beginning of the second half on a pass back and let Madrid's Karim Benzema capitalize on an easy tap-in.

Madrid came from behind to win 2-1 last week in the first leg at the Allianz Arena, and sealed their progression with a 4-3 aggregate triumph despite an unconvincing performance on Tuesday.

Bayern must score and Zidane has promised that Real will not sit back and play for the draw that is enough for them, highlighting the potential for an entertaining encounter.

Europe's most successful club with 12 trophies, Madrid will play the final against either Liverpool or Roma, who play Wednesday in Italy.

"But he has scored a lot of goals this season and you can't forget that he once scored four goals against Real in the semi-final of the Champions League for Dortmund". Sergio Ramos should have dealt with it but failed to clear and Kimmich pounced from close range.

Marcelo and Marco Asensio got the goals for the Whites while Bayern's only strike was converted by Joshua Kimmich.

The visitors pressure paid off in the 63rd minute when James' shot rebounded back to the midfielder and he slotted home from what looked like an impossibly tight angle against his parent club, to give Bayern a lifeline. Then down the other end Cristiano Ronaldo missed the target badly with his first chance of the game on a platter from Marcelo.

"We need to be more efficient than in the first leg", Heynckes said.

Tolisso forced another save from Navas before Rodriguez had another effort blocked as Bayern sought the goal they required to progress.

In the 33rd minute, Bayern had another golden chance to score go wasted following a first leg where they left various goal-scoring opportunities off the board.
