Bayern Munich - FC Barcelona semi-final 2015

The endeavour to attempt to turn around this semi final from the Bayern point of view was always going to be an extreme task with all the odds against them. However, the Germans deserve merit & put in an excellent match showing courage, a belief in themselves right until the end & a performance worthy of what they actual are in European & World Football ; a Great & Champion Club.

The match started intensely with Bayern looking for the early goals to attempt the "miracle". The doors of possibility opened very soon with their 7th min opening header from defender Benatia. It was looking very positive & hopeful for the Germans until Barça settled themselves & shut the door firmly with deadly & effective attacking Football that combined Suarez, Messi & Neymar. The equalizer for Barça came in the 15th min when Suarez found Neymar who tapped in the ball & the the second goal came in the 30th min with Neymar again finishing off a Messi & Suarez combo. An almost knock-out punch that took the wind out of the Bayern Munich sails. 

But as mentioned, undaunted by the Football reality Bayern kept looking for the necessary goals to make the miracle, but smashed into one of the players of the night for Barcelona, their goalie Ter Stegen who made 3-4 outstanding saves (one off the line) that kept Bayern "on hold".

The second half was taken with a bit more calm by Barça & the rhythm fell. However, the German pride dominated & Bayern kept looking for the goals & at least the victory in front of their supporters. The equalizer from Bayern came in the 59th min through Lewandowski & the third - their winner - in the 74th min through Muller

Barça then concentrated on keeping things under control & dampening the German enthusiasm as much as they could, just in case of a possible accident. The final whistle blew & Barcelona celebrated their pass into the UEFA Champions League Final in Berlin next month, their 8th final where they have won four.

Tomorrow their Finals opponent will be known from the Real Madrid - Juventus semi-final 2º leg game were the Italians take a slight lead after their 2-1 result from the 1º leg. Another Top match that cannot be missed.
