Real Madrid claim valuable away win

(FIFA.com)
  • Real Madrid overcome early deficit to win at Bayern Munich
  • Marcelo and Marco Asensio score valuable away goals
  • Second leg set for the Santiago Bernabeu in Madrid next Tuesday

Bayern Munich hosted Real Madrid in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League semi-final on Wednesday evening.

In a competitive contest between two of Europe's heavyweights, Bayern took an early lead through Joshua Kimmich.

However, a Marcelo equaliser just before half-time and a winner from Marco Asensio in the second half meant the holders returned to the Spanish capital in pole position to reach next month's final in Kiev, Ukraine.    

FIFA.com breaks down the biggest moments of Wednesday's match with a photo gallery.

The winner of the 2017/18 UEFA Champions League will represent Europe at the FIFA Club World Cup UAE 2018 at the end of the year.
