Video: Bayern Munich 1-0 Atletico Madrid goal – Xabi with the decisive Champions League strike?

Posted by

It’s a goal that could bring Bayern Munich one step closer to the Champions League Final, and it was scored by veteran Xabi Alonso.

The former Liverpool and Real Madrid man – hoping to win his third Champions League title, this time for the German giants – put the ball through on a free kick, after Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski deferred on a piece of trickery, to slip the ball through the pile and past the Atletico Madrid goalkeeper for a goal.

The goal tied Bayern and Atletico on aggregate at 1-1.

Thomas Muller would later miss on a penalty kick that would’ve given Bayern Munich a 2-0 lead and 2-1 aggregate lead shortly afterwards.

Alonso won the Champions League with Liverpool in 2005 and again with Real Madrid in 2014.
