Real Madrid crush Bayern, make Champions League final

Real Madrid sailed into their first Champions League final since 2002 with an astonishingly one-sided away victory over holders Bayern Munich, the BBC reports.

After three consecutive semi-final defeats, the visiting fans were in raptures as Sergio Ramos twice headed in early on, before Cristiano Ronaldo’s record 15th goal in this season’s competition all but ended the tie by the break. Ronaldo added his second late on to complete Bayern’s heaviest home defeat in Europe and, more importantly, bring Madrid’s Décima dream to within one match of reality.

Sergio Ramos scored two headers from set-pieces before Cristiano Ronaldo rounded off a counter-attack to all but end the game as a contest.

Ronaldo added a late free-kick for his record 16th goal of the European campaign to seal a 5-0 aggregate win.

Real will face either Chelsea or Atletico Madrid in the final in Lisbon.
