Real Madrid have one foot into a third consecutive Champions League final after beating Bayern Munich 2-1 in the first leg of the semis on Wednesday evening.

It was Marcelo who grabbed Real’s first goal but the Brazilian defender’s deft strike just before half time wasn’t his most audacious contribution to the match — not by a long chalk.

No, that came after the break when the skilful left-back pulled off a truly astounding piece of ball control that even earned him a coo of collective appreciation from the Allianz Arena crowd.

Ridiculous composure and technique on display, and so infuriatingly nonchalant too!

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.
