Bayern Munich were knocked out of the the Champions League this week by Real Madrid, who took full advantage after a slip-up from Bayern's goalkeeper Sven Ulreich.

"Of course I know now, it's final that I'll never go back to the bench in a Champions League game - and I think that's a good thing", he said as Bayern bowed out 4-3 on aggregate.

Bayern goalkeeper Manuel Neuer continues to recover after a leg injury since September past year. One by one, his Bayern Munich teammates lifted themselves off the ground, out of their reveries and regrets, caught their breath, and sought him out to offer condolences and hugs.

"He won't want to wake up tomorrow", said former Bayern goalkeeper Oliver Kahn on German television network ZDF.

LIVERPOOL HAVE BEEN hugely impressive in the Champions League this year, but they have certainly received the rub of the green along the way too. "You can not come to a semi-final and play average football". The Brazilian defender blocked a shot from Joshua Kimmich in the penalty area at the end of the first half with the score at 1-1 but Turkish referee Cuneyt Cakir gave a corner.

Bayern's appeals fell on deaf ears, with the match officials waving away their protests, and Marcelo says it was up to the referee to determine whether his actions had been deliberate.

As the number of vector-borne cases continues to increase, the burden on local and state health departments has grown as well. In 2016, the most common tickborne diseases in the USA were Lyme disease and ehrlichiosis/anaplasmosis.

Bayern can now turn their attention to achieving a domestic double having already secured the Bundesliga title this season, while a meeting with Eintracht Frankfurt in the DFB-Pokal final awaits them later this month.

"This is how Madrid qualify", howled Catalan daily Sport, adding that they had reached a third final in a row "with more refereeing help and a lot of luck".

The Anfield club were also linked with a move for Real Madrid starter Keylor Navas, though Klopp was allegedly reluctant to pursue him.

"This Bayern team are going to be full of regret because, over both legs, they were dominant throughout, created many, many chances and looked the far better team".

Jupp Heynckes bowed out with Bayern Munich in the Champions League semi-finals with the head coach admitting not many 72-year-olds get to experience "such an adventure".

Unprecedented measures have been taken to safeguard the 5,000 supporters who have made the trip but there remains genuine concern there could be trouble and Klopp is not immune to that.
