Rio Ferdinand speaks nothing but the truth about Real Madrid

They will meet either Liverpool or AS Roma in the final in Kiev on May 26, where they will bid to become the first side since Bayern in 1976 to win the competition three years in a row.

Ultimately, a disastrous goalkeeping error from Sven Ulreich proved to be the difference on the night, and Madrid are through again - despite not playing particularly well the night.

Leading 2-1 following the first leg in Germany, Real got off to the worst possible start after Joshua Kimmich gave Bayern a lead inside three minutes.

City authorities had been in negotiation with the group to vacate the building since February, Sao Paulo City Hall said. That blaze was brought under control relatively quickly, São Paulo Fire Brigade Lieutenant André Elias told Globo TV.

Bayern Munich suffered from a nightmarish déjà vu in Tuesday's second leg of its Champions League semifinal against Real Madrid.

Defeat was harsh on Bayern, who dominated large spells of the game.

It all proceeded to come crashing down for Bayern just after half time. Sergio Ramos should have dealt with it but failed to clear and Kimmich pounced from close range.

Thousands rally as Armenia lawmakers set to vote on new prime minister
They're marching to the square for a mass rally to support the candidacy of Nikol Pashinyan for prime minister. The chamber voted 45-55 on Mr Pashinian's nomination after a nine-hour-long session on Tuesday.

Eight minutes later Madrid regained the aggregate lead when Marcelo was allowed to advance from left-back and afforded the time to line up a ideal cross that found Benzema in space to head in at the far post. Cristiano Ronaldo could have wrapped it up from Marcelo's cross as Madrid looked to finish it off; instead James Rodríguez drilled past Navas at the second attempt to revive Bayern hopes, but Madrid held on in a frenetic final half-hour. He picked out an unmarked Benzema, who rose to power home a header. Bayern could have re-taken the lead when striker Robert Lewandowski was foiled by Madrid goalkeeper Navas and Rodriguez sent the rebound flying over the bar from close range.

Luka Modric and Marcelo both put balls across the face of goal down the other end, before Ronaldo missed a sitter, and with it the chance put the game out of sight.

Ulreich's gaffe handed Real the lead in the first minute of the second half.

Sainsbury's, Walmart's Asda to create United Kingdom supermarket powerhouse
One option is Sainsbury's absorbing Asda stores, while Walmart take a large stake in the combined group. The enlarged supermarket group would have almost 3,000 stores and annual sales of more than £50bn.

Madrid fans unfurled a giant banner before kickoff stating "We will defend the throne, we will capture glory", but Bayern launched an early assault on their kingdom as David Alaba came rushing forward only to pass into the hands of keeper Keylor Navas. James stuck out his foot to almost convert right in front of goal after Robert Lewandowski's effort was blocked by Madrid goalie Keylor Navas, who was again brilliant.
