Two late goals from Real Madrid prevent Germany from reaching the Champions League final against Dortmund. Bayern goalkeeper Manuel Neuer explains the first goal Real Madrid conceded, which represented the end.

MADRID – National football team goalkeeper Manuel Neuer shined for a long time in the Champions League semi-final against Real Madrid, but then the Bayern Munich goalkeeper made a mistake. When Joselu scored the equalizer in the 88th minute, he misjudged the path of the ball and thus started a 1-2 defeat. The 38-year-old said after being eliminated in the semi-finals: It was very difficult for him. “I have to say I expected the ball differently, more towards the chest. It then went up a bit and I didn't expect there to be a minimum of a mole in space,” Neuer said on streaming service DAZN. “That 1-1 draw was brutal. “

After a 2-2 draw in the first leg, Bayern lost the decisive match in Madrid 1-2 despite leading 1-0. Former German League player Joselu, born in Stuttgart, also scored the second goal for Real Madrid's victory after equalizing in the first minute of stoppage time. “The fact that we were out of here with the final stage still 1-0 until the 85th minute of the game is very bitter. We were actually in London, we saw each other in the final, and you can't really find the right words,” Neuer said.

Given the defeat after a 2-2 draw in the first leg, there will be no repeat of the 2013 final against Borussia Dortmund on June 1 at Wembley, who had beaten Paris Saint-Germain the day before. dpa
