[VIDEO PICK] Mario Gomez scored his 12th goal of the Champions League to lead Bayern Munich to a 2-1 win over Real Madrid in the first leg of their semifinal series. Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho called the goal a "lucky punch" but it was enough to give Bayern its 14th win in its last 15 home games. For video highlights ...
Trivia:Gomez's 12 goals would have matched Ruud van Nistelrooy's Champions League record for goals in a season set in 2002-03, but Barcelona's Lionel Messi has already topped that. Messi heads into Wednesday's game against Chelsea with 14 goals on the season.
Bayern Munich reaction: "In my opinion, we deserved to win and we beat a great team. We played with hunger, passion and ambition." -- Coach Jupp Heynckes
Real Madrid reaction:"It's not a bad result, but it means we have to win at home and turn it around. It's not the biggest turnaround in history." -- Mourinho
The second leg:Wednesday April 25 in Madrid.
