After having watched the game in the Uefa Youth League between both sides, I was ready for my first Champions League game ever. I expected a lot from this game as the crowd sees an average of 3.5 goals per game over the last 10 Champions League games in the BayArena.

The atmosphere was very well and the Germans showed their beautiful tifo. Both sides has a few opportunities in the 1st half but none of them could seal one of them, 0-0 at the break. 

As the visitors from London were better in the first half, the home side were much better in the second half, pushing the visitors on their half and keeping the pressure very high. But Lloris seemed unbeatable tonight after a few wonderful saves, while his mates didn't even have a single shot on goal, 0-0 at the final whistle.

The BayArena is a very decent ground which was built in 1958 (old name: Ulrich-Haberland-Stadion) with a capacity of 20.000 places. Nowadays it can hold 30.210 fans after 2 renovations (1997, 2009).
