FT: Real Madrid earn a tremendous away win at the Allianz Arena. Los Blancos knew they needed to survive through Bayern's efforts and ended up doing so through a solid performance.
56th minute: Marco Asensio entered the game after halftime replacing Isco and it only took him 11 minutes to score. A turnover by Rafinha left Lucas Vázquez and Asensio against just one defender and they executed that counter to perfection. Brilliant goal.
HT: Marcelo has scored a brilliant volley from distance to make it 1-1! Good news for Real Madrid as Zidane's men were struggling quite a lot before this goal. Bayern are giving Madrid a lot of trouble off set pieces.
27th minute: Joshua Kimmich has given Bayern a 1-0 lead off a counterattack. Marcelo was caught off position and Keylor Navas was expecting a cross and could've done much better. Bayern have the lead.
Real Madrid starting XI: Navas; Carvajal, Varane, Ramos, Marcelo; Kroos, Casemiro, Modrić, Isco; Vázquez, Ronaldo
Bayern Munich starting XI (To Be Confirmed): Ulreich; Kimmich, Hummels, Boateng, Alaba; Martínez, Thiago; James, Müller, Ribéry; Lewandowski
This is a crucial game for Real Madrid, who will need to score as many away goals as they can in order to take care of business at the Bernabeu in the return leg. Expect Bayern to play with a lot of intensity and an offensive-minded system which would allow Madrid to have chances off counterattacks.
