Real Madrid Vs. Bayern Munich, 2012 UEFA Champions League: Bayern Still On The Attack

Bayern Munich have been forced to be even more attacking than usual after going 2-0 down, and that's making for a very fun match. The visitors came close to breaching Real Madrid's rearguard yet again, with Toni Kroos being presented with a free header from a corner. Instead of attempting a shot, the midfielder tries to nod back across the face of goal, where Sami Khedira is able to scramble clear.

Madrid, of course, will be happy to see Bayern streaming forward - all the better to play their lethal counterattack. Granted, they're going to have to actually get the ball without fouling their guests at some point in order to do so, but, in general, more space is better for the team that's winning. Bayern eventually give the ball back to Real when Luiz Gustavo blasts well wide from long range, which was a bit silly.
