The avalanche of goals and the fantastic comebacks of this European spring are a good time for caution, but Real Madrid has nevertheless taken a big step towards a third consecutive final in the Champions League, winning 2-1 Wednesday night at Bayern. Munich.
Bayern remarkably managed to muzzle Cristiano Ronaldo and opened the score by Joshua Kimmich (28th). But it takes more to bend the Madrilenians, in full success on the continental scene: the realism of the doubles title holders, with goals from Marcelo (44th) and Marco Asensio (57th), ended up punishing the Bavarians.
For the first time this season, Cristiano Ronaldo did not score in a Champions League match. The Portuguese had a difficult game, without touching a lot of ball, little served by his teammates and perhaps orphan Karim Benzema, author of a good entry into the game in the second period. The Real striker, however, believed scoring but saw his goal (superb) logically refused by Mr. Kuipers, after a hand at the time of control.
