[VIDEO PICK] Like Barcelona the day before, Real Madrid blew a 2-0 first-half lead that would have been enough to send it through to the UEFA Champions League
final. Instead, it will be Bayern Munich playing at home on May 19 against Chelsea. Bayern got a penalty kick from Arjen Robben to even the series 3-3 on
aggregate after two early Cristiano Ronaldo goals, and Bayern won 3-1 on penalty kicks after Cristiano Ronaldo, Kaka and Sergio Ramos missed their shootout attempts. For video highlights ...
TRIVIA. Bayern Munich became the first team to advance to a Champions League final it is hosting.
BAYERN MUNICH REACTION. "I think that if you analyzed the last 120 minutes, we have justly qualified for the final. It was wonderful how the team reacted after we had gone 1-0, then 2-0 down. Immediately after 1-0 we had a chance to draw level and after it became 2-0, we loosened up and I think we played some wonderful soccer. Achieving what we did at the Bernabeu is great. I do not agree with many things said about Jose Mourinho. People I trust have only said good things about him and him leaving to the locker room is normal after the misfortune of penalties." -- Bayern Munich coach Jupp Heynckes
REAL MADRID REACTION. "The boys were fantastic. The mentality was incredible against a great team who have been in a state of holiday for the last week, while we played a match like no other. We lacked a bit of freshness and there was a lot of tension. When it is 2-1, whoever made a mistake was going to lose. It was a great game. We lost and we are sad, but soccer and life is like this. It's normal because we wanted to win. I am saddest for my players. It hurts to see them sad, but we must be strong. Last year we won the cup, so if we win the league it is a step forward. I am proud of the guys, there is nothing to criticize. I am proud of this group." -- Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho
NEXT UP. Bayern Munich will have to play have Chelsea without Holger Badstuber, David Alaba and Luiz Gustavo, all suspended after they picked up yellow cards in Wednesday's game.
