UCL: Real Madrid beat Bayern in semi-final, book final with Dortmund at Wembley

Super sub Joselu’s two late goals earned Real Madrid an incredible semi-final victory against Bayern Munich and set up a UEFA Champions League (UCL) final with Borussia Dortmund.

Bayern appeared to be heading to the final when Alphonso Davies cut in and blasted past Andriy Lunin after England captain Harry Kane had found him with a superb pass.

But Joselu grabbed an 88th-minute equaliser when he reacted quickest after Bayern goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, who had been excellent up until then, fumbled Vinicius Jr’s effort.

The match witnessed some drama two minutes later when Joselu, a former Stoke City striker, swept home from six yards out from Antonio Rudiger’s square pass.

The goal had originally been given as offside only for a video assistant referee decision to show that Joselu was onside, sparking incredible scenes of celebration in the Bernabeu, with Real hanging on to win 4-3 on aggregate.

Both sides drew 2-2 in the first leg in Germany.

The 14-time European champions, will face Dortmund on Saturday, 1 June at Wembley.
