The first danger play by the locals reached the edge of the quarter hour. Center James in 13 ’and the shot of Bale with the outside he found no goal by centimeters. Seven minutes later, and after a tested corner in which they participated Marcelo Y Kroos, the shot of James from the front he left beaten. The play of greatest visitor danger during the first 45 minutes was starring Óscar Plano, who finished off from a distance.
The next two danger plays of the Real Madrid They came with head shots. That of Benzema, in the 24 ’, grazed the visiting crossbar, while the one of Bale, ten minutes later, it ended up in the hands of Masip.

Genius of Benzema
The goal seemed a matter of time, but the minutes passed and did not arrive. Until we saw the genius of Benzema. The Frenchman scored a flag goal in 82 ’. He only needed two touches of the ball. The first to control, from behind and at the edge of the area, after the pass Varane and the second to invent a half-shot shot adjusted to which nothing Masip could do. It seemed that the triumph would remain in the Barnabas, but in the 88 ’Sergi Guardiola tied, which left without a deserved victory to the whites.
