Real Madrid Vs. Bayern Munich, 2012 UEFA Champions League: 2nd Half Underway

And we're back at the Santiago Bernabeu for the last UEFA Champions League semifinal match of the season. It looked as though Real Madrid were going to run away with this early on, scoring twice in the first fifteen minutes, but Bayern Munich have hit back with a penalty and the tie is now dead even at three goals apiece. Presumably we'll see some better defending in this half, because the first, while entertaining, was a bit of a mess.

Real kick us off and instantly go on the attack, with Angel di Maria combining nicely with Alvaro Arbeloa to play in Karim Benzema. The French striker's cross fizzes straight through the penalty box without anyone touching it, but that was a real scare for the visitors. They then reciprocate, with Mario Gomez heading just wide of Iker Casillas' right post. I guess we're not going to see better defending then.
