Penalties take Bayern through


Bayern Munich will face Chelsea in the Champions League final after a 3-1 penalty shoot-out win over Real Madrid at the Bernabeu, with Cristiano Ronaldo missing a penalty, following a 2-1 Madrid win after extra time.

That additional half-hour was a forgettable affair as players from both sides pulled up with cramp.

The goalkeeper is usually the star in such situations and, on this occasion, both were, Neuer’s marvellous stops from Ronaldo and Kaka shading Casillas’s saves from poor efforts by Lahm and Kroos. The sight of weak penalties from Germany internationals seemed bizarre to the neutral.
