Zidane hails gritty Real win

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane is delighted with the form of Keylor Navas and Karim Benzema.

After another insane game Liverpool can now look forward to a clash with Real Madrid in a final in Kiev on May 26 that is a truly tantalising prospect.

Spanish midfielder Isco, who missed second leg clash against Bayern, joined the team for a part of the practice though he is still recovering from a left shoulder sprain he sustained in the club's 2-1 win in the first leg of Champions League semifinal.

"Nothing is easy. Football is like that, you have to suffer".

Joshua Kimmich scored for Bayern in the third minute to set the stage for another comeback at the Santiago Bernabeu, like the one Juventus almost pulled off in the quarterfinals before Ronaldo converted an injury-time penalty.

Ulreich made a freaky mistake in the second half, as he attempted to collect Corentin Tolisso's back pass, only to seemingly realise that he was unable to use his hands.

The under pressure pair were outstanding for their Champions League success against Bayern Munich.

However, the information on what actions the Waymo minivan took after the sedan chose to swerved for avoiding another collision. That Waymo employee suffered minor injuries due to the impact, but that reportedly is the extent of injuries today.

"We desperately wanted to reach the final and we gave our best and then this needless mistake happens to me". "You can be happy, you have to be, it is not normal to be in the final for the third consecutive time".

But Bayern's host of chances - not just in Madrid, but in the first leg in Munich last week ought to have made Ulreich's blunder completely irrelevant.

"We struggled in the beginning, conceding early and not being able to play our game".

For long periods in the second half, Heynckes' men were dominant. "We pressed up front and got the second goal".

Kimmich had given Bayern the lead after 28 minutes at the Allianz Arena and here he did it in three, slamming home after Sergio Ramos poked Corentin Tolisso's cross straight to his feet. Madrid conceded twice more in that game but eventually advanced thanks to Ronaldo's injury-time penalty.

Benzema hasn't been playing regularly as a starter and was a surprise addition to the lineup by Zidane.
