Real Madrid Stuns Bayern Munich with Joselu’s Late Comeback to Reach Champions League Final

Real Madrid orchestrated a stunning comeback against Bayern Munich, securing a thrilling 2-1 victory on Wednesday, with Joselu emerging as the hero by striking twice late on, propelling them to a 4-3 aggregate win and a berth in the Champions League final.
Bayern’s Alphonso Davies initially put the visiting German side ahead in the second half, raising hopes of a comeback akin to the 2013 all-German final in London.
However, Real Madrid showcased their resilience, mounting a sensational turnaround with Joselu finding the net in the 88th and 91st minutes.
The Spanish champions are now poised to face Borussia Dortmund in the Wembley final on June 1, after defying the odds against their formidable opponents.
Joselu, who came on as a late substitute, etched his name in Madrid’s history books with his decisive brace, earning praise from Real midfielder Jude Bellingham, who hailed his contribution throughout the season.
Despite Bayern’s early lead, Madrid dominated proceedings, with Dani Carvajal and Vinicius Junior posing constant threats. Bayern’s Serge Gnabry’s injury forced Davies into action, but Madrid continued to press, with goalkeeper Manuel Neuer making crucial saves to keep his side in contention.
The intensity of the match continued into the second half, with Davies’ strike putting Bayern ahead. Madrid’s Nacho appeared to equalize, only for VAR to rule out the goal due to an infringement.
With Bayern clinging to their lead, Madrid intensified their attacks, eventually breaking through Bayern’s defense. Joselu capitalized on a Neuer error to level the score, before sealing victory with a clinical finish.
Despite initial offside calls, VAR overturned the decision, confirming Madrid’s triumph and setting the stage for their pursuit of a record 15th Champions League trophy.
