Video: CL Highlights: Real Madrid/Bayern

* * *

Many thought the 2011-12 UEFA Champions League was destined to have an all-Spanish final. But one day after Barcelona crashed out in the semis, Real Madrid followed suit.

Jose Mourinho, Cristiano Ronaldo and Co. were knocked out by Bayern Munich after a penalty-kick shootout. The series was tied 3-3 on aggregate after 210 minutes, with each team earning 2-1 home wins in regulation.

Goalkeeper Manuel Neuer made two saves in the shootout and Bastian Schweinsteiger converted the decisive penalty as the German side advanced to the the final, which will be played in its home stadium, Allianz Arena, on May 19 against Chelsea.

What do you make of the final? Who do you think will win? Are you less excited without a Spanish team involved?
