Bayern Munich's good spell continues. Franck Ribery came very close to breaking down the Real Madrid left only for a not-very-nice foul to take him out of the picture. The hosts were able to keep the ball in the opposition half for a good few minutes after that foul, peppering Iker Casillas' penalty area with crosses and generally causing much consternation for Jose Mourinho, who looks just about ready to make a change.
Said change turns out to be Mesut Özil going out in favor of Marcelo, which is an interesting one because it means a change in shape. Presumably, Fábio Coentrão will move from left back to the centre of midfield in a deep 4-3-3 to accommodate the newcomer. It's a defensive-looking move, but Özil's not going to do much for you when you're playing almost exclusively on the counterattack anyway.
