Bayern Munich vs Real Madrid LIVE!

Vinicius Jr scored twice, including an 83rd-minute penalty, to snatch a 2-2 draw at Bayern in an entertaining Champions League semi-final first leg on Tuesday, leaving the tie wide open.

The Brazilian struck against the run of play when he slotted in to give the visitors the lead from Toni Kroos' defence-splitting pass after 24 minutes.

Bayern struck twice in four minutes early in the second half to turn the game around, with Leroy Sane threading home a powerful shot in the 53rd and Harry Kane completing the comeback with a 57th-minute penalty.

Real, however, earned a spot kick of their own when Rodrygo was brought down and Vinicius Jr coolly converted it to equalise. The return leg is in Madrid next Wednesday.

Vinicius Jr reacts to draw

22:00 , Marc Mayo

“We always want to win but we know how this competition is, you can't give away goals because they’ll score the chances they have.

“We have to move on with a calm head, rest until next week and we know that the fans and ourselves are going to do it give everything to qualify.

“We have to be focused, Toni Kroos gave me a goal and I'm happy with the team's defensive work. We worked on it a lot, I know Toni well and he knows me now, too.

“Now it's time to have a magical night at home.”

Who will risk it the most to grab a late winner, then?

Both teams have, to some extent, been masters of their own downfall so far.

GGGGGOOOOOAAAALLL!!!! Bayern Munich 2-2 Real Madrid | Vinicius Jr, 83'

21:41 , Marc Mayo

It’s been a sloppy display for much of the night for Kim Min-jae, who gets booked for hauling down his man. No doubts about that being a penalty.

Vinicius Jr lines the spot-kick up... HE SCORES!

Nice and easy header out for Bayern.

Bayern keep the pressure up with a string of corners.

Eric Dier once again gets on the end of it and a deflection fortunately for Madrid lands for the keeper.

Bayern Munich 2-1 Real Madrid | 67 mins

21:25 , Marc Mayo


Bayern come forward down the left and Harry Kane’s shot-cross deflects narrowly wide of the post.

In comes the corner and Eric Dier powers a header straight at the keeper. Chance, that.

Bayern Munich 2-1 Real Madrid | 65 mins

21:22 , Marc Mayo

Vinicius Jr causes a bit of panic in the Bayern box and dinks a cross into the six-yard box, where the defenders can mop up.

Harry Kane calms it all down by winning a foul off Toni Kroos, who gets booked.

The German then takes the armband as Eduardo Camavinga replaces Nacho Fernandez, who looks unhappy about coming off! Aurelien Tchouameni moves to centre-back.

Bayern Munich 2-1 Real Madrid | 63 mins

21:20 , Marc Mayo

Sweet skill by Rodrygo to beat his man on the edge of the box before Eric Dier gets across to block a low shot.

Time to see a bit more fight from Real Madrid...

Watch Harry Kane's penalty goal

21:18 , Marc Mayo

To make it 1-1...

Bayern Munich 2-1 Real Madrid | 60 mins

21:18 , Marc Mayo

For all that Madrid couldn’t sit on 1-1, Munich cannot sit on 2-1.

They surely have to go for the kill and try to kill this tie, as much as one possibly can against Los Blancos in this competition.

Harry Kane goes down under a barge from Antonio Rudiger in the box but he’s looking for it. No penalty.

GGGGOOOOAAALLLL!!! Bayern Munich 2-1 Real Madrid | 57'

21:14 , Marc Mayo

Poor tackle from Lucas Vazquez on Jamal Musiala and no doubt from Clement Turpin, he pointed to the spot right away.

Jude Bellingham has a little word with Harry Kane as his England teammate lines up the spot-kick.

Bayern are on the cusp of completing a rapid turnaround...


Penalty to Bayern Munich!

21:13 , Marc Mayo

What a time for that goal, so much of this game is left and Madrid cannot sit on a draw.

Jamal Musiala into the box, hits the deck... penalty!

GGGGOOOOOAAAALLLLL!!! Bayern Munich 1-1 Real Madrid | Sane, 53'

Saved by Manuel Neuer! Not quite far enough into the corner to beat the keeper.

Bayern Munich 0-1 Real Madrid | 50 mins

21:08 , Marc Mayo

Lucas Vazquez leads a charge down the right until his cross is mopped up.

This hasn’t really been a game of many chances, certainly since Bayern’s early rally.

Bayern Munich 0-1 Real Madrid | 47 mins

21:05 , Marc Mayo

Leroy Sane spent the entire break doing a warm-up out on the pitch due to his pelvic injury, which means when he slows down he seizes up.

Thomas Tuchel has moved the winger to the right flank with Jamal Musiala on the left.

Bayern Munich lacking precision

20:56 , Marc Mayo

Bayern had fired several shots at goal before Madrid had managed any. Then Real’s first broke the deadlock.

The hosts have got themselves into some good positions but failed to take them, with Thomas Muller, Leroy Sane and Harry Kane all a bit off with their accuracy.

They’re also struggling when Madrid slow the game right down and sit on the ball.

But you fancy them to up the intensity after the break and force the issue a bit more.

Going to plan for Real Madrid

20:50 , Marc Mayo

It was a poor start from Los Blancos but they’ve looked for more calm and assured since about the 20th minute, shortly after which they got the goal.

Toni Kroos spotted Vinicius Jr’s run after he dragged Kim Min-jae up the pitch and did him for pace.

A long way to go but Real are just about good value for the lead at this point.



20:47 , Marc Mayo

Rodrygo takes, off the wall and out for a corner.

Nacho Fernandez gets a head to it before Konrad Laimer fails to avoid conceding another corner.

No sign of any stoppage-time board as we continue.

Cleared and that’s the break.

Bayern Munich 0-1 Real Madrid | 44 mins

20:44 , Marc Mayo

Nearly a penalty to Real Madrid!

Jude Bellingham beats Noussair Mazraoui to the ball on the very edge of the box and hits the deck.

Foul and free-kick for the visitors, the Bayern man is booked.

Bayern Munich 0-1 Real Madrid | 42 mins

20:43 , Marc Mayo

Harry Kane is over it and he goes for the far post... wide!

Bayern Munich 0-1 Real Madrid | 41 mins

20:41 , Marc Mayo

Free-kick to Bayern after Jamal Musiala is stopped a little too abruptly on the edge of the D.

Nacho Fernandez doesn’t get any of the ball so it’s the right call, Musiala has been the biggest spark for the hosts by some margin.

Bayern Munich 0-1 Real Madrid | 38 mins

20:39 , Marc Mayo

Rodrygo bundles Noussair Mazraoui into touch but doesn’t avoid conceding the corner, which goes in deep and a foul is awarded for Real as the header goes over.

Bayern Munich 0-1 Real Madrid | 35 mins

20:36 , Marc Mayo

More jeers for Toni Kroos ahead of a Real Madrid corner. The away team are doing an increasingly good job of frustrating their hosts.

Manuel Neuer comes out to punch as Antonio Rudiger rises well to nearly head it past him.

Bayern Munich 0-1 Real Madrid | 26 mins

20:27 , Marc Mayo

Well, that was very Real Madrid!

A questionable start, a bit of a response, a first shot and a goal. Superb pass by Toni Kroos, Vinicius Jr left Kim Min-jae for dead and Manuel Neuer was slow off his line.

Minor penalty shout from Leroy Sane waved away by the referee.

GGGGOOOOAAAALLLL!!! Bayern Munich 0-1 Real Madrid | Vinicius Jr, 24'

20:24 , Marc Mayo

No shots yet for Real but they’re creeping back towards parity in the possession column with some longer spells on the ball.

Then comes the forward ball and Vinicius Jr is through...


Bayern Munich 0-0 Real Madrid | 21 mins

20:21 , Marc Mayo

A first Madrid corner, won by Lucas Vazquez, and former Bayern man Toni Kroos is jeered as he swings it in.

Short to Vinicius Jr, he skips past his man before pinging a poor cross into the stands.

Bayern Munich 0-0 Real Madrid | 18 mins

20:19 , Marc Mayo

Nice work by Jamal Musiala to drop deep and win possession, before riding two challenges to carry the ball clear.

That ends a rare foray into the Bayern half for Los Blancos and Lucas Vazquez is lucky to avoid giving a foul away for upending Noussair Mazraoui.

Bayern Munich 0-0 Real Madrid | 16 mins

20:17 , Marc Mayo

Madrid are really struggling to hold onto the ball, as shown by Lucas Vazquez hoofing it long from the right-back spot and instantly losing it.

It’s just a case of whether Bayern can manage a bit more precision in their build-up to force another big opening.

Bayern Munich 0-0 Real Madrid | 12 mins

20:13 , Marc Mayo

Smart work by Konrad Laimer and Thomas Muller gets in down the right, before picking out Jamal Musiala who shoots over.

Bayern Munich 0-0 Real Madrid | 9 mins

20:10 , Marc Mayo

Now Harry Kane tries his luck from the halfway line!

Bayern win the ball in the centre circle and the England striker lobs Andriy Lunin... and the crossbar, too.

Bayern Munich 0-0 Real Madrid | 8 mins

20:09 , Marc Mayo

Not even at the eighth minute and Bayern have had their third shot from inside Real’s box, Leroy Sane again as this one flies over.


Bayern Munich 0-0 Real Madrid | 7 mins

20:07 , Marc Mayo

Jamal Musiala wins the first corner of the night which Joshua Kimmich sends short.

A nice interchange sends the right-back towards the byline, which Fede Valverde spots well to clear.

The second corner bounces over the crowd and ends with Harry Kane’s snapshot straight at Andriy Lunin.

Bayern Munich 0-0 Real Madrid | 4 mins

20:05 , Marc Mayo

Vinicius Jr drops deep to help mop up for Madrid and pulls off his silky trick of the night.

It’s been a confident start from Bayern, however.

Bayern Munich 0-0 Real Madrid | 2 mins

20:03 , Marc Mayo

Madrid lining up in a bit of a 4-4-2 off the ball with Rodrygo wide left.

Bayern break through pretty quickly though and Leroy Sane shoots at goal... saved low by Andriy Lunin!

Bayern Munich vs Real Madrid | Kick-off!

20:01 , Marc Mayo

Some whistles for the UEFA Champions LEague anthem, a tune which Vinicius Jr greets with a knowing nod as the teams line up.

Harry Kane at the end of the Bayern line for his second such semi-final. The first one was a bit of a cracker.

A warm embrace between Carlo Ancelotti and Thomas Tuchel on the touchline and we get underway with Bayern in white and red, Madrid in black and gold.

Here come the teams!

19:56 , Marc Mayo

Before kick-off, the family of Bayern icon Franz Beckenbauer, son Joel and wife Heidi, come on the pitch for a presentation.

A huge tifo is unveiled of Der Kaiser too as the players walk out the tunnel.

Tonight's referee

19:54 , Marc Mayo

French official Clement Turpin has the referee tonight.

The Leandro Trossard doppelganger is a regular in the big games having taken charge at two World Cups plus the upcoming Euros.

Ten-minute warning!

Carlo Ancelotti sweats the small stuff

19:48 , Marc Mayo

Carlo Ancelotti has been speaking to Spanish network Movistar+ ahead of kick-off.

Asked what makes him nervous before matches, the Real Madrid boss says: “Small details that I don't want to explain because they may seem silly.

“Yesterday they asked me if [my team selection] was going to be unfair and yes, because more than 11 deserve to play. But we have five substitutes that can be very useful.”

Big job on for Eric Dier

19:45 , Marc Mayo

How Bayern Munich’s defence deal with Real Madrid’s rampant forwards will be a big part of tonight’s game.

Kim Min-jae and Eric Dier aren’t exactly blessed for pace, up against Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo.

Raphael Guerreiro has been jettisoned from the XI which downed Arsenal for a more offensive left-winger, perhaps as Thomas Tuchel doesn’t fear Madrid getting at Bayern too much with patient play down the flanks.

Konrad Laimer and Leon Goretzka will need help from their frontline in tracking back to deal with a talented, busy Madrid midfield.

Rewind: Madrid smash four goals to down Bayern

19:38 , Marc Mayo

The 2013-14 Champions League semi-finals can serve as inspiration for Real Madrid, and possible revenge for Bayern Munich.

After a 1-0 win for Los Blancos at home, they trounced their opponents 4-0 in the second leg to silence the Allianz Arena.

Thomas Tuchel: Home fans the key to victory

19:34 , Marc Mayo

Bayern Munich manager Thomas Tuchel has urged the home fans to create a special atmosphere tonight.

Bayern have advanced into the last four of the Champions League for the first time since winning the tournament in 2020, while record 14-times champions Madrid last took home the trophy in 2022.

“We need the atmosphere to be incredible,” said Tuchel in his pre-game press conference.

“We also need the fans to support us, even in moments when it's more difficult. Together with the fans, we need to create an atmosphere that gives us an advantage.

“When you're playing against Real Madrid, you're also up against the aura, the legend that surrounds them. Our focus will be fully on the game. We're all looking forward to a great match.

“[Madrid have] clear patterns. It's a mix of a midfield diamond and two holding, two attacking midfielders. It's very flexible, experienced and automated.”

Ich bin ein no Bayern Munich-er, admits Carlo Ancelotti

19:29 , Marc Mayo

Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti has apologised upon his return to Bayern Munich for not remembering his German.

"Ich habe vergessen Deutsch (I have forgotten German)," the Italian coach said on Monday to the local reporters, albeit with the word order mixed up.

Ancelotti coached Bayern for just over a year and won the 2016-17 Bundesliga, but the league title alone is not always enough to sate ambitions at the Bavarian powerhouse.

Bayern had won the previous four Bundesligas. After Ancelotti made it five in a row, Bayern won the next six.

Ancelotti was forced out after a shaky start to the 2017-18 season. Losing to Paris Saint-Germain 3-0 was the final straw for club chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.

“Unfortunately, we weren't as successful back then as he is now at Real,” Bayern midfielder Joshua Kimmich said on Monday.

Bayern fans greet their team

Some footage here from a little earlier on as Bayern Munich fans made a right racket for the team buses’ arrival.

That red wall much-vaunted by the home team appears to be taking shape rather impressively.

Landmark numbers

19:15 , Marc Mayo

Thomas Muller will make his 150th Champions League appearance tonight, leaving him one shy of the all-time record held by Xavi.

Will he claim it for himself in the final at Wembley?

Jude Bellingham might one day boast that honour with tonight his 32nd Champions League outing.

Only Cesc Fabregas, with 34, made more before his 21st birthday - a number Bellingham could tie himself in the final given his birthday is at the end of June.

Carlo Ancelotti names his team

19:06 , Marc Mayo

Aurelien Tchouameni beats Eduardo Camavinga to the final spot in the Real Madrid line-up.

Lucas Vazquez is chosen as the right-back amid Dani Carvajal’s suspension, leaving Eder Militao on the bench.

Thibaut Courtois is also in the squad after a long spell out injured.

Jamal Musiala fit for Bayern

19:02 , Marc Mayo

Tonight’s hosts welcome Leroy Sane and Jamal Musiala back to their starting XI after injuries.

Thomas Muller gets the nod to join them and Harry Kane in the attack, leaving Serge Gnabry on the bench.

Alphonso Davies doesn’t make the line-up and he joins Dayot Upamecano among the substitutes.

Tonight's destination

18:19 , Marc Mayo

The cavernous Allianz Arena will host tonight’s semi-final first leg.

Capable of hosting 75,000 fans, most of whom will be dressed in red tonight to create as intimidating an atmosphere as possible for Madrid.

Since the venue, which will host the opening game of Euro 2024 plus next year’s Champions League final, was built in 2005 it has been a happy hunting ground for Los Blancos.

Bayern won their first two meetings here before three-straight Real victories.


Bayern boost

18:07 , Marc Mayo

Jamal Musiala, Leroy Sane and Konrad Laimer have all been pictured entering the team hotel this afternoon following injury worries.

Matthijs de Ligt, as expected, is not with the squad.

Bayern Munich vs Real Madrid | Countdown to kick-off

17:59 , Marc Mayo

We are now two hours away from this semi-final tie getting underway.

Team news is set to drop anytime from now, really. Madrid in particular have a penchant for an early release on these nights.

Harry Kane and Jude Bellingham primed for box office battle

17:50 , Marc Mayo

Manchester City knocked off their perch, Arsenal stifled and English football, that most inward-looking of beasts, forced to gaze beyond its borders and its twin title-chasers for interest in the Champions League semi-finals.

The search, though, is hardly a taxing one, this evening’s heavyweight tussle between Bayern Munich and Real Madrid easily enough dressed up as a clash between England’s totem of both past and present, and that of its future, as well as the here and now.

It is Madrid versus Bayern; it’s 20 European titles between them and domestic dominance untold. But really, to us, it’s Harry Kane versus Jude Bellingham, the forces pencilled in to lead a summer push for Euro 2024 glory, for now fissioned, with a place in a Wembley final on the line.

Score prediction

17:40 , Marc Mayo

Real can be expected to be more front-footed than they were at the Etihad, with the Spanish side deservedly favourites in this tie.

They have not lost in LaLiga since September and are fully capable of grinding out results, even when not at their best.

Bayern have been in better form recently and their season rests entirely on the Champions League, but it would be a surprise if they are able to keep Real’s front-line quiet.

Real Madrid to win, 2-1.

Our prediction for the Madrid XI

17:33 , Marc Mayo

Predicted Real Madrid XI: Lunin; Nacho, Rudiger, Militao, Mendy; Valverde, Tchouameni, Kroos; Bellingham, Rodrygo, Vinicius Jr

Injuries: Alaba, Courtois

Suspended: Carvajal

Early Real Madrid team news: Key defender banned

17:25 , Marc Mayo

Jude Bellingham did not feature against Real Sociedad due to a stomach issue but is expected to return, as is Rodrygo who has recently been ill.

It is otherwise a largely-fit squad for Ancelotti to choose from, although Dani Carvajal is suspended and Lucas Vazquez or Nacho Fernandez will start in his stead at right-back.

How we reckon Bayern will line up

17:20 , Marc Mayo

Predicted Bayern Munich XI: Neuer; Kimmich, Kim, Dier, Davies; Laimer, Goretzka; Sane, Musiala, Gnabry; Kane

Doubts: Sane, Musiala

Injuries: De Ligt, Upamecano, Coman, Boey, Sarr, Buchmann

Early Bayern Munich team news: Late fitness tests

17:13 , Marc Mayo

Alphonso Davies is available for Bayern, having been suspended for the second leg against Arsenal, while Jamal Musiala and Leroy Sane face late fitness tests.

Konrad Laimer has overcome a knock picked up on the weekend but Matthijs de Light has not been so fortunate, and will join Kingsley Coman, Dayot Upamecano and Sacha Boey in missing out.

“I don't know 100 per cent,” admitted Tuchel on Monday. “We have to wait to know the results of the latest tests.

“Laimer looks good, we'll see what happens with the rest. We need patience. I think it's too early for De Ligt and Upamecano. As for Jamal and Leroy, it will be a last minute decision.”
