La Real will travel alive to Munich | Sports

Saint Sebastian

Real Sociedad had a party at the Reale Arena in a historic debut in the Champions League. The txuri-urdín team had the difficult mission of standing up to an entire Bayern Munich and not only competed one on one, but deserved to leave with a higher award. Schuller’s solitary goal before half-time gives the Bavarians the lead going into the second leg. However, those of Natalia Arroyo showed that in Germany they can give more than one scare to a group called to be among the contenders for the title.

Bayern started better, but Real did not wrinkle, led by a very participative Nerea and a mobile Gaby who hurt the Bavarian defense looking for spaces on the wings. Nerea tried it with a free kick, as well as Stanway with a good shot that Lete stopped. And, half an hour later, in a quick transition overcoming the San Sebastian pressure, Dallmann appeared in front of Lete, but his cross shot crashed into the post. The Germans pressed hard and with a great pass from Buhl to Schuller they took the lead shortly before the break.

Everything changed in the second part. La Real had nothing to lose, and went for the match with Andreia’s entry. Buhl warned that, with spaces, they could kill the tie; but Elene Lete prevented the Germans from sentencing time and time again. And then Amaiur came in and everything changed. La Real began to find more alternatives. Nerea had it in a shot from the edge of the box that, after grazing the goalkeeper, crashed into the crossbar. Also Jensen and again the captain ran into the wood. Amaiur added two more occasions. But there was no way. La Real leaves with its head held high and the conviction that in Germany it can cause a surprise on Thursday of next week.
