The mighty Bavarians have fallen to nothing.

The mighty Bavarians have fallen to nothing.

Bayern Munich fell to Real Madrid 1-2 on aggregate in the second leg of the 2023-2024 UEFA Champions League semifinals at the Santiago Bernabeu in Madrid, Spain, at 4 a.m. ET on Monday.

After drawing 2-2 with Real in the first leg, Munich fell to 3-4 on aggregate to miss out on a place in the final. Kim Min-jae was the most crucial player in the first leg, twice contributing to the crucial goals that led to the quarterfinal exit.

In the second leg, a theatrical multi-goal performance from Joselu turned the tie around for Real. Munich, whose 12-game Bundesliga unbeaten streak had already been snapped, were reduced to irrelevance without a Champions League title.

There was a controversial moment. In the 13th minute of second leg stoppage time, just before the end of the second leg, Mathias der Licht rattled the post. Thomas Muller flicked the ball on from behind and Der Licht was on hand to finish. However, the referee called offside just before the shot. 토토사이트 The goal was disallowed. Goalkeeper Andre Lunin didn’t react much when he heard the whistle.

However, it was a slow screen and it was hard to tell if he was offside. It was hard to tell whether Antonio Rudiger or Nusair Mazrawi was in front of him.

In a situation where offside is ambiguous, it’s right to play on. However, referee Simone Marzaniak blew his whistle a little too quickly. Play had already been stopped, and the semi-automated offside assistant referee system didn’t work.

After the game, Der Licht said: “If it wasn’t clear offside, it was right to keep playing. Joselu’s goal was almost offside, but the referee didn’t let it go through, why shouldn’t we?” Der Licht was furious.

Head coach Thomas Tuchel was equally dismayed. He told TNT Sport: “It was a disastrous decision by the referee and the assistant referee. I feel betrayed by that decision. The assistant referee came and apologized. He didn’t have to raise the flag. He saw that we got the second ball and he raised the flag in hindsight. It was a very bad call,” he said.

Tuchel added: “It’s clearly against the rules. It was a bad call for both teams. 파워볼실시간 It was too disastrous to let it go. But what’s done is done and there’s no turning back,” he said.
