CR7 had been quiet for most of the game and was then handed a gilt-edged chance to put Real Madrid 3-1 and all but confirm their place in the final.

That’s Ronaldo with an almost an open goal, from four yards out, in a huge game, you’d put your mortgage on it, right?

So far Ronny has scored in every game in this year’s competition except for the first leg against Bayern, and has scored 28 goals in his last 20 matches.

But on the night he overtook Xavi to become the outfield player with the most Champions League appearances, he completely fluffed his lines.

Marcelo lofted an inch-perfect delivery into Madrid’s main main and all he had to do was let the ball land on his foot and guide it home.

But instead he leant back and blasted the ball way over Sven Ulreich’s bar.

It turned out to be a huge let off for Bayern Munich.

Oh no, oh no, oh no

Oh no, oh no, oh no

The fans inside the Bernabeu could not believe what they had seen.

The most clinical striker in world football had just had a chance to clinch a place in the Champions League final and give Real a chance to win three in three.

And he skied it way up into row Z.

It was just what Bayern needed after Ulreich’s disastrous effort had given Los Blancos the lead.

A few minutes later, after Bayern had been turning the screw James Rodriguez slipped the ball through Keylor Navas’ legs to put the tie on a knife edge.

Next goal wins.
