Real Madrid Vs. Bayern Munich, 2012 UEFA Champions League: Chances Ahoy

Hey, another chance. Franck Ribery does Alvaro Arbeloa again and gets fouled, again, this time after being obstructed. From the free kick Toni Kroos swings in a quite neat cross, and Mario Gomez is able to escape Pepe's clutches to glance a header... but wide. That was a decent chance, although you wouldn't blame him for missing. A few minutes later, Arjen Robben gets into the act, dashing past Pepe and forcing Iker Casillas into racing out to grab the ball before the winger - who's beaten him once already - can strike. Good goalkeeping there.

Also, it's pretty incredible that Luis Gustavo hasn't been booked. He's been on his last warning form about foul number two, and this is either his fifth or six (I am not a foul-counting machine). No yellow yet though, although he's nearly punished when Cristiano Ronaldo gets his free kick on frame. Manuel Neuer catches nonchalantly. Karim Benzema blazes over the bar shortly thereafter. We're still even on aggregate at 3-3, 70 minutes in.
