Real Madrid Vs. Bayern Munich, 2012 UEFA Champions League: Kaka On For Di Maria

Luiz Gustavo makes another foul, and again he isn't booked, although this time it's probably fair because he didn't actually do anything wrong. Bayern Munich are still holding their own at the Santiago Bernabeu, something the home fans don't like very much, and it looks like Real Madrid are going to be the first to blink - Jose Mourinho is readying Kaka, who's coming on for Angel di Maria.

That's going to weaken the hosts' defence down their right, which is a bit of a worry considering that Alvaro Arbeloa's been booked and Franck Ribery exists, but Madrid need to get a hold of the game and Kaka's passing and vision will help. Not that it appears to so far, with Bayern carving open the Madrid back line only for Toni Kroos to mess up the final pass to Mario Gomez. That was a much better chance than it looked, I think.
