Mario Gomez is back to help Bayern Madrid on defence, but doesn't really do anything of the sort when he concedes a silly free kick within Cristiano Ronaldo's shooting range. The Real Madrid frontman pauses over the ball and then unleashes one of his trademark dipping, swerving shots, but fortunately for the visitors it dips and swerves straight into Manuel Neuer's midriff. That's a bit of a letoff for them.
At the other end of the pitch, Arjen Robben tries to take the entire defence on by himself, fails, and then tries to shoot from the corner of the penalty area. That also fails. Well, I guess it actually succeeded, since he did shoot, but it wasn't anywhere near troubling Iker Casillas. This match does not appear to be getting any less crazier - it's almost the polar opposite of what transpired at the Camp Nou yesterday. We're nearly to halftime, and everything is dead even. 2-1 Real on the night, 3-3 on aggregate.
