Marcelo makes handball admission after helping Real Madrid to Champions League final

  • Karim Benzema Gareth Bale

They both did very well in the semi-final.

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

In an nearly carbon copy of the second leg against Juventus in the quarter-finals, Real were left hanging on at the Santiago Bernabeu in added time.

"It's a bad thing for a player to live through", said Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes.

The German club was determined to pull out a win, but Zidane have managed to keep the score in Real Madrid's favor.

Zidane said it was his job to "defend" Benzema, just as he does with all of his players. You can not be more experienced in this competition than Real Madrid.

"Some say that they weren't in the competition but it's a lie, you have to win the Champions League to play in the Club World Cup and we were all in the Champions League".

What hasn't been mentioned a lot though, due to the poor league campaign, is how remarkable Real's Champions League run has actually been.

"Real Madrid have now started preparations for el Clasico in La Liga", the club announced on its website.

For long periods in the second half, Heynckes' men were dominant.

Jurgen Klopp promised Liverpool would not sit back in Rome and they kept to their word, with Mane outshining Mohamed Salah as their most threatening outlet this time.

But Bayern could not muster the third goal to overcome Karim Benzema's double in between - the first a header, and the second a simple finish following a howler by Ulreich.

Bayern goalkeeper Manuel Neuer continues to recover after a leg injury since September past year.

Ulreich yesterday apologised for the blunder, writing on his Instagram page: "Words cannot describe how disappointed I am about exiting the Champions League. 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. "I'm not the only one who believed in him, the players did too and tonight the fans showed their appreciation", added the Frenchman.

The semifinal second-leg match between Bayern and Madrid was also not without controversy.

Mats Hummels was quick not to apportion blame on Ulreich.

For the Reds, this fortunate victory could turn out to be a blessing in disguise, as we look at five reasons why Liverpool will be delighted to see the Blancos instead of the German champions in the final. It's on us tonight.
