Real Madrid Vs. Bayern Munich, 2012 UEFA Champions League: Arjen Robben Misses!

What an astonishing miss from Arjen Robben! David Alaba, who was really hard done by in conceding Real Madrid's earlier penalty, attempts to put his team back in the game with a scampering run forwards, and manages to get completely clear of a bemused-looking white defensive line. The left back crosses for an unmarked Robben in the centre, Iker Casillas can't get there... and Robben misses from all of five yards, ballooning his volley into the crossbar and sending himself flying into the back of the net. It really should be 1-1.

A few minutes later Alaba attempts to cut out the middleman by taking a shot himself, but it's from 35 yards and ends up missing the net as well (by about the same distance as Robben's shot, actually). Then Mario Gomez gets on the ball, forces Casillas into a save and Madrid into scrambling the ball behind just before Franck Ribery can level. This has been a great response to going behind.
