The idea that keeping Vidal on was a good move is preposterous. He wasn't even playing a defensive rol, but rather an attacking one. Pep could have subbed Rode in, and he would have filled in fine. In fact, he could have subbed Götze, Lewy or Coman in and move either Müller or Costa to CM and we would have been fine.

Had Vidal gotten a yellow it would have been literally CATASTROPHIC. He should have gone out at least from the time we got our second goal, receiving 3 goals in 15-20 minutes was absolutely minimal.

Lahm was excellent today getting forward and defending, Alaba as usual solid. Kimmich once again impressed in the back, Martinez solid on both ends. I was almost sure Vidal would get booked, very lucky he did not, but he played a fantastic match. Alonso was very good distributing today, and there were not too many defensive concerns because Bayern pressed very high after losing the ball. Costa was pretty decent, but his best chance came on the left hand side, further proving his best position is on the left. Ribery solid, Muller was a little quiet but there when we needed him. The problem is that when Muller is alone with no Lewa, if he gets pushed wide, there's no target man in the middle unless Vidal makes a run into the box, so I think that in general Lewa and Muller should start together if possible. Good match, and Barcelona lost too! I'd prefer Man City at this point, let the Madrid teams rip each other to shreds.

I agree. I'd say Costa was the only player who wasn't good. That's why I think some of you are being too dismissive of tonight's game.
Super Bayern! Super Bayern! Hey! Hey!

Neuer and Javi were both bad. Kimmich, Costa, Alaba, Ribsy, Thiago and Müller normal. Lahm and Xabi great. Vidal phenomenal.

Kudos to Benfica they are a fantastic football team.
Respect....
I have predicted a low agg score...
I am not 100% satisfied but we played against a magnificant tm.
Neuer should come back to planet earth... He seems to have lost focus...
Javi risked a red ... I don't think that he fouled in the first occ but since the Ref said otherwise he should have been Red Carded.
Now to the semis. IMHO atletico is the most dangerous tms left... Having said that I prefer to play vs them over two legs... cause in a final they will be very strong...
If it has to be Real I want them only in a final... Man C I want to avoid at all costs... esp in a final ... we always lost againat an Eng tm bar on one occ... Leeds...
Back to the game Alonso was good...
Vidal and Ribery the best...
Neuer and Costa the worst even if the latter had a shot hitting the post.

Xabi great? I thought he was rather outpaced throughout the game...Thiago and Vidal were much better imo.
Vidal was extremely well disciplined today. Really gentle in his tackles. He showed once again, how well he can adapt to different situations on the pitch, fantastic intelligence.

Neuer/Martinez flop imo. Hopefully Martinez will get better as he plays a couple more games.

Over all a mediocre performance against a non-title-challenger, missing some of their key players.

Costa was good. A little more luck and he'd score and have an assist (Lewandowski).

We desperately need Boeteng back for the semi final, any possibility of that? Not that any of our centre backs were awful, but his presence has been badly missed. What was Neuer doing for the first goal, completely miss-judged the flight of the ball and nearly KOd Alaba in the process. Full credit to Benfica, they clearly have some very talented individuals, we have played them at their strongest, as they will likely lose their best players this summer, all in all a 5th consecutive semi final appearance, bring on any of the other 3!

It's old news, Neuer has always been bad in aerial balls.

The cross was perfect ... Neuer try something ...

It's more a mistake from the player on the field ... the one who let Benfica player makes this cross ... and Kimmich/Martinez ...
Bayern 3-3-3-1 build-up under Heynckes :
Neuer - Boateng Hummels Thiago - Kimmich Vidal Alaba - Robben Müller James - Lewandowski
Neuer- Boateng Vidal Hummels- Kimmich Martinez Alaba- Robben James Ribéry- Lewandowski

Remember that goal conceded against Arsenal like 3-4 years ago... One of the dumbest goals.

Two major achievements :D. Not getting the first yellow card somehow and scoring from a corner thanks to Benfica's odd zonal-get-the-f*ck-out defense corner system. :lol:

I am really worried that Barca are out...
Remember; that team who eliminates them goes on to win the thing...

It's actually more the team that eliminate us if you think about it.
