Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer was left speechless after his late mistake gifted Real Madrid a dramatic victory in their Champions League semi-final clash.

Alphonso Davies opening goal at the Bernabeu put the Bavarians up 3-2 on aggregate over Borussia Dortmund setting up an all-German final. However, Neuer’s miscalculation in the last moments was essential.

A Moment of Heartbreak

Joselu scored the equalizer in the 88th minute after Neuer mishandled an effort from Vinicius Junior with a few minutes remaining. Bayern Munich conceded again in injury time as Joselu helped Real Madrid advance to the final.

Neuer Takes Responsibility

A visibly distraught Neuer spoke to DAZN after the match acknowledging his role in the defeat. “Anyone who’s played football knows how I’m feeling right now” he admitted. “It’s extremely bitter to be knocked out after leading for most of the game.”

The experienced goalie acknowledged his error: “I expected the ball to bounce differently, but it went higher than expected making it difficult to control.” Joselu reacted quickly and the scenario was difficult to defend.”

Manager Backs His Star Player

Thomas Tuchel Bayern Munich manager offered support to his captain calling the mistake “uncharacteristic.” Tuchel lamented “We were almost there then a very unusual mistake from our best player led to the equalizer.”

Looking Ahead

This defeat likely marks the end of Tuchel’s trophyless tenure at Bayern. The German giants now face Wolfsburg in the Bundesliga before Real Madrid meet Borussia Dortmund in a mouthwatering Champions League final at Wembley Stadium.
