Real Madrid Reach Champions League Final After Beating Bayern Munich

Real Madrid and Bayern Munich were fighting for a spot in the Champions League final on Wednesday, and they gave it their all until the very last minute. Bayern was in the lead for most of the night, but Real eventually secured a spot in the final with Joselu’s two late goals. The previous meeting between Real Madrid and Bayern Munich resulted in a draw and they really had to bring their A-game to their second semi-finals match-up. Alphonso Davies gave Bayern a well-deserved lead in the second half, and they were very close to taking it all before it all came crashing down towards the end. Things took a wild turn when Joselu equalized the score in the 88th minute, before leading Real to the victory. His goal in the extra time sealed the deal and gave his side an epic 2-1 win. "You always dream of this kind of performance, but not even my most beautiful dreams are as big as what happened. I don't know anything about being a hero, but I'm very happy… This team never gives up, it's in its blood to fight to the end and that's what we've done,” said Joselu after the game. Real Madrid will face Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League final, set to take place at Wembley Stadium in London on June 1.
