Real Madrid Manager Admits their Champions League Dominance is Not "Normal"

Clear favorites like Manchester City, Barcelona and Paris Saint Germain did not even reach the semi-finals, and Roma were about to play the final.

According to the Daily Mirror, each player will receive a cash windfall as part of a bonus clause written into their deals.

Liverpool are comfortably the highest-scoring team in this season's Champions League, having scored 38 times so far, with Real Madrid second best with 30 goals.

"Bale has the ability to be the top dog at Real Madrid but he seems to have accepted that Ronaldo is the main man at the Bernabeu".

For Real Madrid, the pursuit of their 13th European Cup has been fortuitous to say the least after the defending champions scrapped their way into a third consecutive Champions League final on Tuesday following a 2-2 semi-final second-leg draw with Bayern Munich.

Real Madrid vs Bayern Munich semifinal second leg is the topic of Omar Momani's new cartoon. I was pretty disappointed when Real appointed him (I remember saying that while he was one of the best players of his time, he'd lack the experience and the tactical nous for the job). The Brazilian defender blocked a shot from Joshua Kimmich in the penalty area at the end of the first half with the score at 1-1 but Turkish referee Cuneyt Cakir gave a corner.

Another significant risk of severe storms today
We'll catch a brief break after Midnight, before isolated showers return by mid overnight through the Friday morning commute. Storms that are in Kansas will continue to move northeast this evening though and are expected to impact parts of the area.

"Is it a penalty then?" came the reply, before Marcelo answered: "If it hit my hand, then I think so, yes".

Zinedine Zidane's side continue to rewrite the history books, with the club preparing for a third successive final and a 16th in total - with their manager yet to suffer a defeat in continental knockout competition.

Jupp Heynckes' side can count themselves very unlucky, as the veteran coach was missing a number of first-team regulars through injury, including Chilean midfielder Arturo Vidal. "I just hope he can find a way to play Bale in the final".

"But you guys know that I don't talk about the referees".

"It was a fantastic game, we invested everything in our performance but we did not do everything right, we lacked a bit of luck, especially in the box".
