Real Madrid congratulate Barcelona for Liga-Copa double

Bayern Munich head coach Jupp Heynckes has called upon referee Cuneyt Cakir of Turkey to be "fair and just" in the face of pressure from Real Madrid and the Bernabeu crowd as they prepare for their Champions League semi-final second leg on Tuesday.

Holders Real have the advantage after their smash-and-grab 2-1 win in Munich a week ago, but were exposed defensively throughout the first leg.

On previous occasions, as seen with the Real Madrid's Champions League and LaLiga double last season, Barça have sent congratulatory messages. And while AS Roma has never won a European title, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Liverpool have combined for 22 titles among them.

Defeat was harsh on Bayern, who dominated large spells of the game.

"They've trained with us and now we have a bit of time to think about what we're going to do".

Kimmich netted from inside the area after Madrid captain Sergio Ramos failed to clear a ball crossed into the area by Corentin Tolisso.

Real responded quickly and Cristiano Ronaldo went close to levelling as he fired wide from six yards.

Eight minutes later Madrid regained the aggregate lead when Marcelo was allowed to advance from left-back and afforded the time to line up a flawless cross that found Benzema in space to head in at the far post. He picked out an unmarked Benzema, who rose to power home a header.

Bayern wasn't done yet and Rodriguez equalized in the 63rd with a low shot from inside the area.

Ronaldo forced a save from Ulreich at the other end before Ramos headed into the side-netting from the resulting corner.

Following the mistake, Bayern pushed forward knowing they needed two goals to advance.

He stumbled at the crucial moment in a one-on-one with Real goalkeeper Keylor Navas in the first half before Marcelo equalised for Real.

Tolisso is nearly equally to blame, too.

Back in the squad is left-back David Alaba, while Arjen Robben did not recover in time to be fit for the second leg.

And that miss soon loomed large as James gave Bayern hope once more, following up his blocked volley from Niklas Sule's cross and firing through Navas' legs at the near post.
