In crucial moment, Benzema finally comes through for Madrid

Karim Benzema Gareth Bale

This time, a goalkeeping blunder.

Zinedine Zidane has won every two-legged Champions League knockout tie as Real Madrid manager.

On the reason for not giving Barcelona a guard of honour, he said, "I'm not the one who decides, after the Club World Cup I understand that it wasn't important for them to do a guard of honour", Zidane explained.

Zidane has also been smart enough to not let the boardroom influence his football. "Then we gifted a goal and in the end you can not let that happen twice in a semi-final like this", said Bayern forward Thomas Mueller.

Joshua Kimmich scored for Bayern in the third minute to set the stage for another comeback at the Santiago Bernabeu, like the one Juventus almost pulled off in the quarterfinals before Ronaldo converted an injury-time penalty.

He missed a back-pass from Corentin Tolisso, leaving Benzema to tap into an empty net.

Real Madrid defender Marcelo has confessed that Bayern Munich should have been awarded a penalty in their Champions League semi-final return leg.

"Everyone must realise that they only scraped through at the end".

Ulreich yesterday apologised for the blunder, writing on his Instagram page: "Words cannot describe how disappointed I am about exiting the Champions League".

"They fight and when we get a good result, it's great for everyone".

Real Madrid are set to take on the English giants Liverpool in the UCL Final at Kiev on 26th of May with the hopes of lifting the prestigious trophy for third time in a row.

Bayern had also been wasteful in the 2-1 first-leg defeat by Real in the first leg at the Allianz Arena.

"It was a insane match", Zidane said. "He helped us a lot with his saves in the second half". "His goals gave us a chance to advance".

It was an eerily similar start to Madrid's match against Juventus, when it conceded in the second minute while trying to protect a 3-0 first-leg advantage.

French newspaper L'Equipe said simply: "Madrid walk on water". He had scored only once in his last 12 appearances in all competitions.
