The African Madridista – Mitchell Demula, gives his thoughts on Real Madrid’s Uefa Champions League semi-final defeat to Bayern Munich on Wednesday. It wasn't easy for him...
It was generally a good game although I expected more from Madrid. They had some good counters but didn’t use their chances, same case for Bayern. Both teams looked good on attack. I just wish Kaka was introduced earlier; Di Maria was having another average game, even if he started well in the first 15 minutes.
I think the number of games these guys have played in the past four weeks, including the Clasico, took its toll. You could see they were trying hard but they just weren’t clinical. But overall, big ups to Bayern, they put up an outstanding fight.
Madrid had scored the first two goals, in the first 20 minutes, then Pepe gave away a penalty – he played well though and it was just hard luck. Robben converted the penalty and from then both teams were fighting till the penalty shootout.
