This time, a goalkeeping blunder.

The Frenchman said Barça refused to give Real Madrid a guard of honour when they won the Club World Cup earlier in the year but said in a pre-match conference that Madrid will pay tribute to Andres Iniesta who will be departing Barça at the end of the season.

"They played great football and created a lot of chances".

The Bundesliga champions also had a penalty appeal waved away when their Polish striker Robert Lewandowski went down under a challenge from Real captain Sergio Ramos.

"If I say it didn't hit me [on the hand] I'd be lying, but football is like that", said the Brazilian.

"You can not be in the final without suffering, it's even better, more attractive when you win like that".

From the outset Bayern Munich showed that they were going to bring a fight to the Santiago Bernabeu, with Joshua Kimmich finding the net from close range inside the opening five minutes.

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.

It crashed in the immediate vicinity of Savannah Hilton Headquarters International Airport, the US Air Force said in a statement. Puerto Rican authorities say there were nine people aboard the cargo plane that crashed outside the Savannah, Georgia , airport.

Bayern Munich goalkeeper Sven Ulreich "can't explain" how he made a crucial mistake that allowed Real Madrid score a second goal in the Champions League semifinals.

Real will face the victor of Wednesday's semi-final second leg between Roma and Liverpool in Kiev later this month.

"Everyone must realise that they only scraped through at the end".

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

The Spanish giants are chasing their third European title in 4 years however Mane says Liverpool, who've scored 40 targets on this 12 months's competitors, are charged with confidence heading into the finale in Kiev on Could 26.

Bayern had also been wasteful in the 2-1 first-leg defeat by Real in the first leg at the Allianz Arena. "People are always trying to minimise our success, but we're used to that", said the Croatian.

"The referee did a good job, we didn't lose because of him", said Bayern forward Thomas Mueller.
