Benzema Gives Ancelotti’s Men Slender First-leg Advantage

A solitary strike from Karim Benzema was enough to give Real Madrid a 1-0 win over Bayern Munich in the first leg of the Champions League semi-final.

The France international poked home Fabio Coentrao’s cross in the first half for the only goal of the game to inflict only a second defeat in the competition for Pep Guardiola’s side.

Bayern bossed possession but failed to create many meaningful chances, and Madrid could have won more comfortably had Cristiano Ronaldo and Angel Di Maria kept their composure with clear openings in the first 45 minutes.
