Real Madrid Vs. Bayern Munich, 2012 UEFA Champions League: Bayern Nearly Win It!

If Bayern Munich score here, Real Madrid will need two goals to avoid being knocked out. Considering that there are less than ten minutes left, that means that there's some real fear in the air from the home fans whenever the visitors go forward. They manage it to great effect through some neat play by Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben on the right flank, but Pepe is able to mop up.

It's strange to see a team so confident against this Real side - even Barcelona looked shaky whenever they've played Jose Mourinho's bunch, so full credit to Bayern for not letting their heads go down after conceding twice early on. They could easily win this... and I don't know how they haven't. David Alaba carves open the defence with a pass to Robben, who squares for Mario Gomez... who doesn't shoot. How odd. 3-3 still.
