Bayern Munich are in the drivers' seat in their UEFA Champions League tie against Marseille. The home side almost got to halftime with the score tied at 0-0, which would have suited them just fine, but they're in a big hole thanks to Mario Gomez's 44th minute goal. L'OM are going to be effectively out of the competition without a comeback in the second half, and Bayern will feel very comfortable with their 1-0 lead.
Marseille actually had the first great opportunity in the match to score. In the 8th minute, Manuel Neuer saved a header from Stephane Mbia on a corner kick, but his save fell to Loic Remy. The Marseille striker had room to shoot and teammates to cross to, but instead put a bad shot into the side netting.
The Bayern goal came just before half in beautiful, though controversial fashion. Mario Gomez applied the finish on the end of a beautiful team move.
But wait, how did that move start? How does Phillip Lahm win the ball back from Mathieu Valbuena before starting that attack?
