Huge save!

Late in the match, the referee awarded Atletico Madrid a late penalty when Javi Martinez was ruled to have fouled Fernando Torres inside the penalty area. The replays showed that the referee was way wrong, and the foul occurred two to three feet outside of the penalty area.

Torres stepped up to take the spot kick, and the Allianz Arena was rocking. In the Bayern goal stood the world's best goalkeeper Manuel Neuer. He glared at Torres as he ran up to take the kick and made a spectacular diving save to keep Bayern with a hope at advancing.

Time is ticking away on Bayern's Champions League season. Can the Bavarians muster one more goal to send them to Milan? Destiny awaits Bayern.
