Bayern Munich beat Real Madrid 2-1 in regular time last night, but according to Robert Lewandowski, what happened minutes before the referee whistled to send the game to extra-time, was what decided the tie after all.
Viktor Kassai got Arturo Vidal’s second yellow card all wrong, leaving Bayern with ten men, something that Lewandowski believes his team could not cope with, not against Real Madrid, not at Bernabeu.
I think we could have won and played the next round, but the referee made a lot of errors. I think it was impossible to play Real Madrid with 10 men. It was not a red card
the Bayern striker said right after the game, which Madrid went on to win 4-2 in extra-time, taking full advantage of their numerical superiority.
The Poland international had a damning, for the referee and his assistants, opinion, regarding Real’s goals as well.
One of their goals was offside, maybe two. Also, for my situation as well, when I was one-on-one, I was not offside. It’s very difficult to play against Madrid at the Bernabeu if you have a situation like this
Lewandowski, scorer of Bayern’s first goal last night, said.
