Marcelo makes handball admission after helping Real Madrid to Champions League final

Gareth Bale

But Benzema's double in between, the first a header, the second a simple finish following a awful error from Bayern goalkeeper Sven Ulreich, proved enough as Real hung on for a 2-2 draw, and a 4-3 win on aggregate. "I'm expecting a fair form of refereeing tomorrow and I expect his decisions not to interfere with the outcome of the game". "I have staff, we put things in place and they are on the pitch".

"Bayern are a great rival and along with their talent they are Germans and they do not give up". "We have to focus on the game and on playing with intensity". The first was when Marcelo handled in the area and the second came when Sergio Ramos appeared to push Robert Lewandowski in the back. "I would be a liar if I said that it did not".

Another player who redeemed himself on Tuesday was goalkeeper Keylor Navas, who had been criticized by some Madrid fans after his mistake in the second leg of the quarterfinals against Juventus almost cost his team the spot in the semis.

After helping Real Madrid to the Champions League final, Marcelo has conceded that he was perhaps fortunate to get away with a handball shout during a clash with Bayern Munich.

There you have it, a Champions League final that no one imagined two months ago.

According to the usually notorious rumour mill Don Balon, Zinedine Zidane has identified attacking duo Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah as Liverpool's two biggest threats which Madrid must look out for. He made a mistake for Bayern's goal a week ago but made a string of saves on Tuesday night.

Seismic incident kills four at Sibanye-Stillwater mine
Driefontein produced 482,000 ounces of gold in 2017, accounting for about a third of Sibanye's output of the metal. Cosatu said it was "alarmed by the deteriorating and poor safety record of Sibanye Stillwater mining company".

"Words can not describe how disappointed I am over the Champions League exit".

A fine run from Franck Ribery and a clever turn and shot from Muller forced a low save from Keylor Navas, who then denied Lewandowski after a surging run from Mats Hummels, the subsequent looping rebound nodded down by Muller but then fired over on the volley by James as Madrid again somehow survived.

Heynckes said he expected a competent performance from the Turkish official.

There was humility, too, from Real midfielder Lucas Vazquez, who performed manfully at full-back.

Zidane, however, said he and the rest of the Madrid squad had kept their faith in the striker despite his struggles.

"I'm not the one who decides that I don't want to give a guard of honour, they didn't do one".
