Real Madrid stormed into the UEFA Champions League final for the first time in 12 years Tuesday, scoring three times in the first half and routing 2013 winner Bayern Munich, 4-0, at Allianz Arena. With a 5-0 aggregate victory, Real will seek to extend its record of European titles to 10 on May 24 in Lisbon against Chelsea or Atletico Madrid.
Defender Sergio Ramos scored on set-piece headers in the 16th and 20th minutes, and Cristiano Ronaldo capped a swift counterattack in the 34th before adding a late goal on a free kick for Real, which had won the first leg at home last week, 1-0. The Bundesliga leaders had reached the final three of the previous four years and were aiming for a sixth Champions League trophy.
Chelsea and Atletico, even after a scoreless draw in Madrid last week, will decide their semifinal Wednesday at Stamford Bridge in London (2:45 p.m. ET, Fox Sports 1, Fox Deportes and www.foxsoccer2go.com pay service).
