They were undeterred by Real's early tight pressing game, however, taking the lead when Kimmich slotted home after a superb through ball from former Real player James Rodriguez. The Bavarians should have scored again even after another setback when Boateng went off with a thigh muscle injury, with chances falling to Franck Ribery, Mats Hummels and Thomas Mueller. But it was Real who struck against the run of play with a low drive from Marcelo a minute before the break as the Brazilian full back added to his goals against Paris St Germain and Juventus in previous rounds.

The Spanish side, who have had a disappointing domestic campaign, then caught the Germans napping after a defensive blunder as Asensio raced clear to score their second goal.
