Real Madrid Vs. Bayern Munich, 2012 UEFA Champions League: Robben Penalty Levels Tie

Goodness, there's that Real Madrid counterattack. Bayern Munich hold the ball for long enough for the Santiago Bernabeu crowd to start whistling in annoyance, but Angel di Maria eventually intercepts and sends white shirts streaming forwards. Manuel Neuer is left all alone by his defence, but eventually is able to fall on the ball after a few minutes of utter fear.

Oh, and then Bayern Munich score. Of course they do! Toni Kroos is fed on the right flank by Mario Gomez and attempts to cross for Gomez, but the centre forward is bundled over by Pepe. The referee didn't hesitate to point to the spot, giving Pepe a booking in the process, and Arjen Robben managed to make up for his earlier miss (and that penalty against Borussia Dortmund) with a spot kick that just about snuck past Iker Casillas.

So it's 2-1 to Real on the night, but 3-3 on aggregate. The hosts no longer have the away goal advantage, either.
