Real Madrid see off Bayern to reach third straight Champions League final


After their last-gasp win over Juventus in the quarterfinals, Real were left hanging on against Bayern Munich at the Santiago Bernabeu as Karim Benzema's double secured a 2-2 draw and 4-3 win on aggregate.

Whether it be Liverpool or Roma they face in Kiev, Los Blancos will be strong favourites to lift the title.

Another player who redeemed himself on Tuesday was goalkeeper Keylor Navas, who had been criticized by some Madrid fans after his mistake in the second leg of the quarterfinals against Juventus almost cost his team the spot in the semis.

"We have had a wonderful atmosphere, a great collaboration over the nine months, it's a group that has character, it's a pity it was not rewarded", he added.

"If I say it didn't hit me [on the hand] I'd be lying, but football is like that", said the Brazilian.

Adidas has partnered with West since 2013, in what has been one of its most significant business relationships with a non-athlete. Justin Bieber has offered his support to Kanye West , saying that we should "love" even if we don't "agree".

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.

"We still needed a third goal", the defender said.

Salah is one of Europe's most frightening players at the moment, having netted 42 times in all competitions during a phenomenal first season on Merseyside, while Mane on the opposite flank has scored 19 goals this season - including nine in 10 Champions League games. After the first leg Kimmich had been disappointed with Bayern's naivety but there could be no such complaints this week. The Frenchman, after making it to his third Champions League final is as many years in charge of Real Madrid, declared that his side's dominance was "not normal". Zidane is getting his tactics wrong, Ronaldo is getting too old, Navas is not a top-tier goalkeeper - whatever part of the team you choose to criticise, evidence supporting your case could be found this season. I imagined you'd ask me that. We could have done better in this game but we've made it through to the final.

"It was a fantastic game, we invested everything in our performance but we did not do everything right, we lacked a bit of luck, especially in the box".
