Liverpool fans are already excited about Mohamed Salah vs Keylor Navas as Real Madrid beat Bayern Munich

Real Madrid have done it again in the Champions League – despite going 1-0 down tonight, the reigning European champions bounced back to claim a crucial 2-1 away victory over Bayern Munich.

Are we heading for a Liverpool-Real Madrid final this season? It certainly looks like it after the first leg results this week, and that could be a worry if you’re a Reds fan given the Spanish giants’ addiction to winning this competition.

Despite not being at their best tonight, goals from Marcelo and Marco Asensio following Joshua Kimmich’s opener gave Madrid another impressive win and most likely another stab at the trophy they’ve won for the last two seasons in a row.

That didn’t put off some Liverpool fans though as they tuned in to take a look at two teams they could meet in the final, which they’ll feel they already have one foot in after a 5-2 win over Roma yesterday.

Here’s our round-up of events at the Allianz Arena tonight…

The good

We’ll pretty much dedicate this section to Marcelo tonight. Cristiano Ronaldo hogs the limelight so often on these occasions, but for today the Brazilian has well and truly stolen the show.

There’s this, for starters:

And then there’s this…ridiculous:

The bad

This poor attempt at a save from Keylor Navas. No wonder Manchester United fans were on hand to warn Real Madrid off signing David de Gea moments after the goal went in.

Some Liverpool fans also noticed the error and are already dreaming up how Mohamed Salah is going to destroy him in the final…

The weird

For the weird, there’s the stat above, which begs the question – why doesn’t he start more?

No wonder Don Balon have recently linked him with Manchester United – this exciting young talent could play regularly for most top clubs around Europe and Real need to do all they can to keep him happy!
