Boateng, Martinez and Robben were injured for Bayern, while Isco and Carvajal left the match earlier for Real Madrid.
A win with bitter taste or a disappointing defeat – so can be considered the match at “Allianz Arena” for Real Madrid and Bayern Munich.
Real Madrid got a very good result in the semi-finals against Bayern, but lost two players – Isco and Dani Carvajal.
Isco was injured at the beginning of the first half on his shoulder and almost all 45 minutes, he played with pain, Zinedine Zidane announced that, and that is the reason why he included Marco Asensio right at the beginning of the second half.
Dani Carvajal, left the field in the 67th minute, replaced by Karim Benzema, while Spain’s midfielder Lucas Vasquez took the role of right defender.
While Bayern, beside losing, also lost some important players like: Arjen Robben, Jerome Boateng and Javier Martinez – all three were injured in the challenge at “Alianz Arena”.
Robben and Boateng left the game in the first half and Martinez in the 75th minute.
For Martinez, it was originally thought to be a tactical replacement, but Jupp Heynckes confirmed that the Spaniard left after some concerns.
So, on Wednesday evening at Allianz Arena, five forced replacements were made, only Mateo Kovacic in the 83rd minute played in instead of Casimiro as a tactical change.
The return match will take place at the Santiago Bernabeu on Tuesday, where Bayern last season with the same result from the first challenge made troubles to Real Madrid.
