Arturo Vidal thunderous header gives Bayern Munich the early lead against Real Madrid

The Chilean knows how to head a ball

Bayern Munich don’t often score from set pieces but when they do, oh boy do they do it in style.

After a succession of attacks, Bayern Munich landed an easy corner kick. Thiago Alcantara’s brilliant outswinger was perfect for Arturo Vidal who easily bested Nacho Fernandez to thundering a header over the head of a dumdstruck Keylor Navas.

It was the perfect turning point for Bayern so far. They dominated early play but in recent minutes Real Madrid had come to bring some influence to bear on the match. Arturo Vidal showed them that was not going to happen.
