Bayern Munich vs. Real Madrid, 2012 Champions League Semifinal: Match Underway

We're underway in the Allianz Arena, where Bayern Munich are hosting Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League semifinals. Both sides will be attacking today - Bayern know they need a win here to have much of a chance of knocking their opponents out at the Santiago Bernabeu next week, and Los Blancos will be pushing hard for that critical away goal.

The home side, in red, have got us going and manage to keep the ball for almost a minute before Sami Khedira retrieves possession, which is immediately squandered thanks to a nice piece of pressing from Mario Gomez. A minor battle between Franck Ribery and Angel di Maria ensues, which the Argentine wins only to run into a thicket of red shirts and then immediately lose the ball. Not a whole lot going on so far.
