Sven Ulreich Reacts To Howler In Champions League Semi-FinalPublished by content on Sat, 06/09/2018 - 10:02
Bayern Munich shot-stopper Sven Ulreich issued an apology to the club’s supporters via social media after his goalkeeping blunder hampered his side’s chances of making the Champions League final. The German had done a credible job playing second fiddle to Manuel Neuer but he was unfortunately the villain on the night at the Bernabeu.
The Bavarian giants had held Los Blancos to a 1-1 scoreline at the interval but following the break, a moment of madness allowed the hosts to regain the advantage. Ulreich had gone to catch a backpass from his teammate Corentin Tolisso but shortly after realising his mistake, he had a mistimed kick which allowed Karim Benzema to score in front of an open goal.
