It was one of those historic nights at the Allianz Arena in Germany as Real Madrid went on to secure a slot in the finals of the Champions League, and gun for "La Decima," at the expense of Bayern Munich.
While the Bavarians dominated the possession at 69%, the Los Blancos kept their composure on the defensive end and maximised on their goal-scoring opportunities, particularly on set-pieces and counterattacks.
Real defender Sergio Ramos broke the deadlock sixteen minutes into the game with a powerful header inside the box following a Luka Modric corner, as the Bayern defenders failed to mark him.
Four minutes later, the vice-captain was able to bag his second after Pepe flicked the ball in the penalty area from an Angel di Maria searching free-kick.
Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored his 15th and 16th goal in the match, was the beneficiary of Gareth Bale's unselfishness at the 34th minute, after the Welshman decided to lay the ball off to the trailing Portuguese superstar in a fast break opportunity, while guiding the ball past a wall just before extra-time in the second-half to complete a brace.
The La Liga giants went on to win 4-0 in the return-leg, and 5-0 on aggregate.
