Champions League: Casemiro - More to Bayern than Lewandowski

19 April, 2017, 09:45 | Author: Nora May

The Portugal superstar scored twice in last week's 2-1 victory over Bayern in the quarter-final first leg, which saw him move to a century of goals in European competition.

It took extra-time to down ten-man Bayern, who will go home cursing what seemed a harsh second yellow card for Arturo Vidal late in normal time.

A freaky Sergio Ramos own goal forced the extra period after Robert Lewandowski opened the scoring for Bayern from the penalty spot and Ronaldo equalised.

Zinedine Zidane's men are looking to become the first team to defend the Champions League and go into this game with great momentum, following Alvaro Morata's last gasp victor at Sporting Gijon on Saturday, which made it ten wins out of 11 in all competitions.

Ancelotti is not the only former Real connection as Alonso spent five years at Madrid before joining Bayern in 2013.

Zinedine Zidane insists Cristiano Ronaldo will not be reproached for shushing Real Madrid fans after scoring against Bayern Munich.

It gave Madrid the upper hand going into the added 30 minutes and they took advantage when Ronaldo scored the crucial second from Ramos's cross, despite being in an offside position.

A first-half goal by Saul Niguez proved enough to ease the Spanish side through to the last four despite Leicester's spirited revival in the second half when Jamie Vardy equalised. Arjen Robben lashed the rebound into the side-netting.

"Obviously he is a very important player for us", said Bayern captain Philipp Lahm.

Ronaldo looked to have eased Madrid's nerves when he steered Casemiro's cross into the far corner 14 minutes from time.

However, the visitors chances of overcoming a 2-1 first-leg deficit were handed a huge boost as Bayern boss Carlo Ancelotti confirmed top scorer Robert Lewandowski will be fit to start.

Ronaldo put Madrid back in control when he chested down a pass by Ramos and fired a left-foot shot that went underneath Bayern goalkeeper Manuel Neuer in the 105th minute.

And then Ronaldo was standing at least a yard offside when he met Ramos' pass and spun to fire Madrid 4-3 ahead on aggregate. We know how hard Bayern are home and away.
