While Bayern probably could have (should?) have beaten Juventus by more than we did, I don't know if you'll find any supporter that is unhappy with taking a 2-0 lead to Turin. The offense will get all of the plaudits, but not enough can be said about the defensive performance put in by the team. Daniel van Buyten didn't seem to put a foot wrong at the back next to the always steady Dante. Even Mario Mandzukic got involved in the defensive fun by constantly pestering Andrea Pirlo forcing the Italian maestra into several errors.
I won't delay any longer. Let's get to reasons that you're here.
Here are the video highlights courtesy of the folks over at Fox Soccer.
I almost looked away for one second at the start of the match. Thank goodness that I kept my eyes on the screen. Otherwise, I would've missed this.
David Alaba just scored a goal in the first minute of the Champions League quarterfinal from way out against one of the best goalkeepers of the world? Really? How did he catch Buffon out like that? Not that I care how he caught him out, but... How? First we got the celebration which was great. I looks like Alaba early knocks Ribery out. I laughed.
So, we see the replay. Ah, the ball took a slight deflection on the way in and wrong-footed Buffon. Wait! Who was it that deflected it? It was Vidal! Haha! Yes. I'm not a fan of his.
We kept pressing and pressing for a second goal and came close a few times. However, it wasn't until the 63rd minute that we struck gold. Buffon made a save on a shot from Luiz Gustavo, but Mario Mandzukic beat the offside trap (He did!) and squared the ball to Thomas Müller for the easy tap-in.
The last gif comes courtesy of Jay over at Bayern Zone. It takes place moments after Müller's goal.
