Made a number of good stops when it seemed that the visitors might threaten, and intercepted a cross that Gomez was ready to convert. On the negative side, he’ll be a touch disappointed to have conceded from the penalty spot after getting hands to the ball. His teammates let him down in the shootout.
Was prominent down the left flank as an offensive threat, particularly in the early stages, but he struggled to contain the forward running of Robben. Even when the Dutchman was not in possession, his positioning was rather suspect.
Struggled to cope with the movement of Gomez, who may have been playing a lone role in attack, but was more than a match for the two home center backs. While Pepe was the man-marker, Ramos was meant to plug the gaps, yet the attacker still found room to threaten. Did make some vital last-ditch blocks. Hit his penalty in the shootout went miles over the top.
Most of the visitors’ best attacking movements came down the opposite flank, with the right-back solid whenever faced by Ribery. On occasions the Frenchman did squirm clear of him, he was able to quickly foul in a nonthreatening area, and picked up a booking for one crude-but-smart indiscretion.
Penalized for a foul on Gomez in the box and was nearly caught out crucially as a quick throw would have opened up a goalscoring chance for the striker had the center back not been able to recover his ground. Had his hands full with the striker all evening and made a crucial block as Gomez threatened towards the end of normal time.
Switched play with terrific grace throughout, opening up the play for his teammates and allowing Madrid to exploit gaps in the visiting rearguard. After neglecting his defensive responsibilities to some extent in the first half, he was more disciplined in this regard thereafter.
Nearly made another unlikely offensive contribution in the early stages of the match when he found himself well placed in the Bayern box, but his shot was weak. As a defensive presence, the German would have wanted to have been a more sturdy presence in the first half, but improved in that capacity as the game settled down. Dropped into the left back role cleverly when Marcelo attacked.
Á. di María
Got the better of Alaba early on to set up a fine early chance for Khedira, but after a promising start to the match, which included winning the penalty, the Argentine would struggle to produce his most threatening form. A wayward pass inside his own half early in the second period nearly inadvertently played Schweinsteiger in. Withdrawn with 15 minutes remaining.
The Germany international was responsible for the well-weighted pass that allowed Ronaldo to make the score 2-0 on the night. Although the former Schalke player took up some intelligent positions, this was his big moment of the game as he was policed relatively effectively. Withdrawn in extra time.
Preferred to Higuain at the point of Madrid’s attack and it was his clever movement that was crucial to opening up the space for Ronaldo’s second. Nearly bent home a terrific shot from an unlikely angle soon afterwards. Made several incisive runs and denied a goal only by some fine Neuer saves. Taken off at halftime in extra time.
Did what Lionel Messi couldn’t do last night by converting a crucial penalty, giving Madrid all the early momentum. When played through by Ozil only a matter of minutes later, the Portuguese kept his head superbly to slide home the second. Was of little influence thereafter.
Made a rather nervy start to the game, which would not have been helped by the fact that he was left helpless as the visitors struck twice quickly. Responded well, showing good handling to field a dipping Ronaldo free kick just before the break and turning away a Benzema drive in the second half. Superb in the shootout.
It tended to be down Badstuber’s channel that Benzema found most joy, with the movement of the Frenchman catching the center back out on several occasions. He was not decisively exposed at any point, but was booked for a lunging challenge on the Frenchman. Will miss the final after being cautioned.
Suffered a nightmare start to the game. Inside the first five minutes, he was easily beaten by Di Maria to create an early chance for Khedira, and while he was still recovering from that blow, he would concede a penalty that also saw him booked, ruling him out of any potential final almost immediately. It could have been a harrowing night for the young Austrian, but he responded well, particularly when given the chance to attack. Can be proud of his recovery, which was completed as he struck home the opening penalty in the shootout. Misses the final after picking up a booking.
Was partly culpable for Madrid’s second goal as he drifted away from the center of the field, opening up the gaping chasm for Ronaldo to run into. The Portuguese was pretty well restricted from open play, however, while the full back was a vital outlet for his side when it was in possession.
Another to be sucked out of position as Los Blancos struck their second goal of the match early in the game, the defender was worked hard by the movement of the home attack on a regular basis and rarely looked comfortable. Made a vital block from a Benzema cross late on.
A valuable creative outlet for Madrid, floating behind the foremost attackers and feeding dangerous little passes in between the home defenders for Gomez to feed off. Drifted into several excellent areas, but was given less room in the second period to threaten.
The destroyer in Bayern’s midfield, he was a little slow to get close to Ozil at times, forcing him to concede fouls in dangerous areas. Was harshly penalized at times, but overall was fortunate to escape a booking until he was finally carded in stoppage time, keeping him out of the final.
Missed a glaring chance soon after Madrid had taken the lead, sending the ball over Casillas’ bar from six yards out but squeezed a penalty past the home goalkeeper to draw the tie level midway through the first period. Guilty of overdoing things on the ball in good positions against his former side.
The all-action midfielder was given a screening job in the Spanish capital, preventing him from making his characteristic charges down the field. Provided useful support to the attack and was the chief linking player, but wasn’t the destructive force he might have been. Held his nerve to strike the winning penalty.
Has been in scintillating form of late, but struggled to make much headway against Arbeloa. When he did wriggle free, he was fouled, but as he was given more freedom to drift as the match wore on, he was increasingly dangerous. Taken off in extra time.
Arguably the greatest pure goalscorer in the world today, he stung the palms of Casillas with an early shot, setting the tone for an excellent performance from the striker. His movement was an immense threat to the home defense, and he was not shy to get shots away. Won the penalty that drew Bayern back into the match, but dallied crucially when he had a seemingly simple chance.
