In a gripping first leg of the UEFA Champions League (UCL) semifinal clash, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid played out a thrilling 2-2 draw, setting the stage for an epic second leg showdown.

Bayern Munich remains winless in their last eight encounters against Real Madrid in the UCL, conceding an average of 2.4 goals per game.

The match kicked off with high energy as two European giants, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid, squared off in a bid for a spot in the UCL final.

The atmosphere at Allianz Arena was electric as Leroy Sané led Bayern’s early charge, denied by Real Madrid’s goalkeeper Andriy Lunin multiple times.

The hosts pressed relentlessly, with promising chances from Jamal Musiala, but it was Real Madrid who struck first.

In the 24th minute, Vinícius Júnior capitalized on a brilliant through ball from Toni Kroos, calmly slotting the ball past Bayern’s Manuel Neuer.

Bayern responded fiercely after the break, with Sané finally breaking his scoring drought with a powerful strike into the bottom corner.

A few minutes later, Musiala earned a penalty that Harry Kane converted with precision, giving Bayern a sudden lead.

However, Real Madrid refused to yield. A penalty from Vinícius Júnior, following a foul by Kim Min-jae, leveled the score once again, leaving the tie finely balanced for the second leg.

This result extended Real Madrid’s unbeaten streak in the UCL to 11 matches while Bayern maintained their formidable record at home.

With this result, Real Madrid has drawn four consecutive games in the UCL for the first time but remains unbeaten in 11 matches this season.
