That Karim Benzema chance has sparked a spell of strong Real Madrid pressure as the visitors are pinning back Bayern Munich well inside their own half. They're struggling to find a way through the massed ranks of red shirts, though - a few corners come to not much at all and Manuel Neuer is not called into action once more. A lot of bark and, aside from a Mesut Ozil pass, not much in the way of bite from Jose Mourinho's men.
Still, they're doing better than Bayern are. Madrid are keeping possession and frustrating the home crowd, who are whistling their disapproval whenever a white shirt is on the ball, which by my early estimate is about 80% of the time. The latest attack ends in disappointment when Xabi Alonso plays a pass so good that the linesman doesn't believe that Ozil can possibly be onside. He was. Chance for Bayern to regroup?
