Madrid completed a 5-0 total goals victory and will now play Chelsea or Atletico Madrid in the May 24 final in Lisbon. This was Bayern’s worst home defeat in the competition and it equaled its biggest loss overall - 4-0 at Barcelona in 2009.
Madrid had never won in Munich in 10 previous matches, losing nine of them. This time, however, Carlo Ancelotti’s team put its stamp on the game early in an overwhelmingly efficient display.
This was a harsh defeat for Bayern coach Pep Guardiola, who had so much success against Madrid when he was in charge of Barcelona. Bayern was trying to become the first team to win two straight Champions League titles.
The match lost intensity in the second half as Madrid protected its lead while a demoralized Bayern team kept possession but rarely threatened.
A minute of silence was held before kickoff in memory of former Barcelona coach Tito Vilanova and Vujadin Boskov, a former Serbian coach of Real Madrid. Both died last week.
