Another day, another testament to consistent powerful play. Bayern Munich, the underdogs in this tie arrived at the Bernabeu to face a Real Madrid team firing on all cylinders. Fresh off of their win at Barcelona, the Galaticos needed to win 1-0 or by two goals if Bayern scored.

Today, I was working again, fortunately, we weren’t terribly busy during the game. I knew I’d be able to watch the game when the first two tables I was seated had come specifically for the game. And what a game it would be! Just as the kickoff was whistled, guess who would stroll into the restaurant to watch the action. The Lone Chelsea Fan. A thumbs up and and smile at Chelsea’s recent qualification as he took a seat at a front table marked his entry. I went over to greet him and take his drink order. Newcastle. Was another upset in the books?

The clash between Bayern and Real Madrid that started tentatively and ended with fiery tension, promises to be a prelude to an exciting game in the second leg, played at The Bernabeu.

Howard Webb refereed the game like he would moderate any other game… in England. Unfortunately the two teams playing were from Spain and Germany respectively. Harsh tackles came in left and right causing protest amongst the 22 on the field and only a rye smirk from Webb in the center.
