Two stars blasted on live TV during Bayern Munich Champions League clash

By successfully defending their 2-1 win from the first leg last week, Madrid stayed on track for a third consecutive European title, and fourth in five seasons. 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.

With the second leg taking place in Santiago Bernabeu, Real might see an advantage from the two goals they scored at Allianz Arena last week, but Bayern's previous visit to Madrid and the recent Juventus result prove that tie is still wide open.

Real are 15 points behind new champions Barcelona in La Liga.

Zinedine Zidane's side take a 2-1 lead into the home leg of their semi-final against five-time winners Bayern Munich. "I do not understand why people believe Madrid are stronger than Bayern are because in the first leg they were not, and Bayern should have won 6-2".

Though their Champions League dreams are dashed, James and Bayern Munich have already sealed another Bundesliga crown.

"He's got to get in position a lot earlier but world-class defenders do make mistakes and you've got to put them under pressure and capitalise".

"The closing down from Marcelo is embarrassing really".

Bayern Munich potential starting XI: Ulreich; Kimmich, Sule, Hummels, Rafinha; Tolisso, Thiago, Muller; Rodrigues, Ribéry, Lewandowski.

Karim Benzema then levelled the scoring, bringing Bayern nearly back to square one. At the other end Sergio Ramos headed into the side-netting just before the break to Madrid frustration - but it was Bayern heads in hands seconds after the restart.

Rodriguez made up for his previous failure in the 63rd minute - the Colombia captain pouncing onto his own rebound and sliding his second effort under Navas from an angle on the right.

Bayern had the flawless start as they got themselves back in the tie with a goal just three minutes into the game.

Navas saved Real a minute later, reacting quickly to a Tolisso shot inside the box after a cross wasn't cleared. Zidane tried himself to stretch Bayern further on the counter-attack with the introduction of Gareth Bale and, while he did overrun one good chance, he was largely also required to join the desperate but ultimately extraordinary rearguard action.
