Bayern Munich vs. Real Madrid, 2012 Champions League Semifinal: Early Reffing Incidents Ahoy

Well there's your first incident of the match. Fabio Coentrao, distraught at... being on a football pitch or whatever, catches Arjen Robben in the centre circle and causes a bit of a fuss as Bayern Munich ask for a booking, which he'd have undoubtedly have received if we were in the second half. As it was, Howard Webb simply gave the Portuguese a stern talking too.

And then there's another! Franck Ribery dances into the Real Madrid penalty box and while skipping past Sergio Ramos/miscontrolling opts to take the easy way out and throws himself to the ground, demanding a penalty. It did look fairly compelling live, but Webb is having none of it, much to the hosts' disdain. This is better from Bayern, though - they're starting to actually put some pressure on Jose Mourinho's men.
