  • That's all for the live commentary so thanks for joining us tonight. Be sure to check back shortly for a full match report, player ratings and reaction.

  • FT: Howard Webb signals for full-time and Madrid take a 1-0 advantage to Munich for the second leg thanks to Karim Benzema's first-half strike. Bayern dominated possession for large parts of the game, but it was Madrid who had the better sights of goal and may feel it should have been a bigger scoreline. 1-0.

  • It would have been a harsh call from Webb as replays appear to show that Alonso took the ball fairly. Bayern are piling on the pressure.

  • Bayern are incensed as they want a penalty! Mandzukic nodded the ball down into the six-yard box where Muller turned and looked to get his shot away, but Alonso came into him and took the ball away. Howard Webb is unmoved.

  • We are now into a minimum of four minutes added time.

  • Modric collects the ball from Benzema down the left but Madrid appear to be in no hurry to commit men forward and push for a second.

  • The home fans inside the Bernabeu are in great voice as we enter the final few minutes. The introduction of Muller up front has given the hosts something else to think about, but their defence has stood firm so far.

  • Modric sprays the ball out wide to Bale on the left who storms into the area and away from Dante. Faced by a tight angle, he goes for goal but can only slam it into the side netting and he loses his footing.

  • Varane heads clear the cross from Kroos with Mandzukic lurking at the back post. Bayern have upped the tempo in the last few minutes with not long to go now.

  • CHANCE! Mario Gotze almost levels for Bayern from inside the area, but there is Casillas with an outstanding save to push it away with two strong hands. You would have expected the Bayern man to do better from there after it opened up for him, but take nothing away from Casillas.

  • Bale wins a corner after delivering a low ball into the area which Dante stabs behind. Boateng clears eventually.

  • Madrid make their final change of the night as Asier Illarramendi comes on for Isco.

  • CHANCE! It opens up for Muller on the edge of the area who lets fly towards the top corner, only for Varane to stand firm and deflect it behind for a corner with Casillas sprawling across his line.

  • Still no sign of an opening for Bayern who continue to pass the ball around Madrid's half. They have scored in their previous 15 Champions League outings though...

  • Kroos is unable to pick out a killer pass and the outstretched leg of Alonso diverts the ball back to the safety of Casillas. Illarramendi is preparing to come on for the hosts.

  • Carvajal attacks down the right before the ball switches play to Bale on the left whose cross is unable to find anyone and Bayern come away with it. Madrid look to be fairly comfortable at the minute.

  • Bayern make their final change of the night as Schweinsteiger makes way for Thomas Muller.

  • Play resumes after that flurry of changes and Isco stretches to keep Di Maria's cross in play before the move breaks down and the ball goes behind for a goalkick.

  • Madrid make another change straight away as Gareth Bale takes to the field in place of Cristiano Ronaldo.

  • The injured Pepe limps off to be replaced by Raphael Varane in defence.
