Bayern goalkeeper Sven Ulreich's catastrophic error which led to Karim Benzema's second goal for Madrid in the semifinal second leg was termed "a gift" in the Barcelona-based media, who also highlighted a handball by Marcelo in the area which went unpunished right before halftime when the score was 1-1 .Just as they did in the first leg in Munich, where Real escaped with a 2-1 victory, Bayern took the lead at the Santiago Bernabeu through Joshua Kimmich.However, the German champions failed to capitalize on their dominance and were beaten 4-3 on aggregate, knocked out by Madrid for the third time in four years.Madrid, 15 points behind champions Barcelona in La Liga, will meet either AS Roma or Liverpool in the Champions League final on May 26, where they will be looking for a record-extending 13th European Cup triumph.
