Prepare for an Enchanting Evening at Home, Declares Vinicius before Bayern Munich Second Leg Showdown

Real Madrid and Bayern Munich are gearing up for an epic conclusion to their Champions League semi-final after an electrifying 2-2 draw on Tuesday.

Vinicius Junior is anticipating “an enchanting evening at home” as Real Madrid hosts Bayern Munich for the second leg of their Champions League semi-final.

The two powerhouse clubs battled to a 2-2 draw in an intense first leg at the Allianz Arena, setting the stage for a dramatic finale when they meet again at Santiago Bernabeu.

Vinicius found the back of the net in the 24th minute, but Madrid fell behind 2-1 in the second half after Leroy Sane equalized and Harry Kane converted from the penalty spot.

Despite this, the Brazilian international also scored from the penalty spot to secure a draw, marking his 31st direct goal contribution in the Champions League since the beginning of the 2021-22 season.

“We always aim to win, but we understand the nature of this competition. We cannot afford to make mistakes as teams capitalize on their chances,” Vinicius said, as per Reuters.

“We must stay composed, rest until next week, and give it our all, along with our fans at the Santiago Bernabeu, to secure our spot in the final.

“Now is the time for a special evening at home to secure victory and advance to the final.”

Vinicius’ first goal came from a precise finish from Toni Kroos’ exquisite pass, with Kroos making 15 vital passes in the first half – significantly more than any other player on the field.

Rodrygo, who drew the foul that led to Madrid’s second goal from a penalty, praised the 34-year-old, urging him to continue playing for many more seasons to come.

“We all encourage him to keep playing, not just for another season, but for many more. He is genuinely a masterful player with talent that is a joy to watch, and we all enjoy playing alongside him,” Rodrygo told Movistar.

“If we couldn’t secure a victory, we were determined not to lose. Given the circumstances, a draw is a positive outcome. We are familiar with the Champions League and are accustomed to matches like this.

“I believe that when teams think they have beaten us, that’s when we become the most dangerous.”
