Defending champions Real Madrid have sailed through to the finals of UEFA Champions League after defeating Bayern Munich in the semi-finals with an aggregate of 4-3.
Real Madrid were already leading by winning the first Leg by 2-1 even though Bayern dominated the match.
In the second Leg, Real Madrid took advantage of Bayern Munich’s carelessness in attack and defence to draw 2-2 to enter the Champions League final for a third year a row.
In the first half, Bayern's Defender Joshua Kimmich scored in the third minute to cover the deficit of Leg 1 but Karim Benzema levelled with a free header in the 11th minute.
Bayern Munich displayed a very poor defence in the match and the worst of all when goalkeeper Sven Ulreich's blooper allowed Real Madrid to take a 2-1 lead in the 45th minute.
An absolute shocker when Bayern's defender Corentin Tolisso passed to the goalkeeper Sven Ulreich from the right-back position and brain freeze Ulreich slipped and could not handle the ball.
Benzema then took the advantage and scored the goal into an empty net.
