“Two gifts as goals,” laments Hummels

Bayern Munich defender Mats Hummels has lamented his side giving Real Madrid ‘two gifts as goals’ during their Champions League semi-final.

A costly error from goalkeeper Sven Ulreich gave Madrid their second goal in the second leg after defensive errors also proved detrimental for the German champions last week in Munich.

“Over the two games we gave them two gifts as goals,” Hummels is cited as telling reporters by ESPN FC.

“Real didn't play at their maximum at all.

“This hurts a lot, we had loads of chances in their area. We did manage to score twice but this was one or two less than we merited on the chances we created.

“We were the more dangerous side but they made less grave mistakes. But we made a game of it without Arjen Robben, Kingsley Coman, Manuel Neuer; Jerome Boateng and Arturo Vidal.”
