MUNICH, Germany -- Sergio Ramos has his redemption, Cristiano Ronaldo has his goal record and Real Madrid is one win away from the long-awaited "Decima. Hanley Ramirez Indians Jersey ." Real Madrid carried out coach Carlo Ancelottis game plan to perfection and routed title holder Bayern Munich 4-0 on Tuesday to reach its first Champions League final in 12 years. Madrid will play either Chelsea or city rival Atletico Madrid in the May 24 final in Lisbon. Madrid, a 5-0 aggregate winner over Bayern, will be seeking a record 10th title -- "La Decima" in Spanish. "We played a perfect game in the first half, we defended very well and pressed very high," Ancelotti said. "We used the space we had for counters, with some great passing." Madrid had never won in Munich in 10 previous matches, losing nine of them. But this time, Ancelottis team put its stamp on the game early and struck with awesome efficiency -- something its Italian coach had promised ahead of the match. Madrids sweeping, fast counterattacks paced by Ronaldo, Karim Benzema, Gareth Bale and Angel Di Maria, along with its tenacious tackling when Bayern tried to come out of the hosts own half, were a huge problem for Bayerns defence. However, the first two goals came from set pieces, as well as the last. Ramos, who missed the crucial penalty when Madrid lost to Bayern at the same stage in 2012 in a shootout, scored those first two goals and Ronaldo added two more to break the Champions League season record with a tally of 16. Ramos headed the first from a corner taken by Luka Modric in the 16th and nodded in the second four minutes later after a free kick from Angel Di Maria. "We prepared the set pieces and we used them to make things easy for us," Ancelotti said. "We knew they defend with a zone, not man to man." Ronaldo made it 3-0 to Madrid in the 34th minute after a perfectly executed counterattack and completed the victory with a free kick in the 89th as he shattered Barcelona star Lionel Messis record of 14 goals in a season. "Goals are great, satisfying on a personal level, but what matters is what we did as a team. The overall result was deserved," Ramos said. "Its a dream come true. Its a dream game, fantastic for all Madrid fans." After the final whistle, Madrid players put on T-shirts with the words Now for the 10th. It was a bitter defeat for Bayern coach Pep Guardiola, who had enjoyed so much success against Madrid when he was in charge of Barcelona. Bayern was seeking to become the first team to defend the Champions League title but instead slumped to its worst home defeat in the competition, and equaled its heaviest loss overall -- 4-0 away to Barcelona in 2009. Guardiola bemoaned the lack of possession in the first half -- although UEFA statistics show Bayern had two-thirds of possession for the game. "We didnt have ball possession and thats why we had no control," Guardiola said. "Its a great disappointment. 0-4 sounds very bitter," Bayern captain Philipp Lahm said. "We wanted a lot, but we failed tactically in the first half." Madrid had lost three consecutive semifinals, including a 2012 shootout when Ramos missed a penalty. Of five previous semifinal series against Bayern, Madrid had won only one. Coming into the match, Madrid had only two wins in 27 outings in Germany, with six draws. But Ancelotti had won with AC Milan in Bavaria and believed he could do it again. "Id won here, so thats why I felt confident about our chances here," the Italian said. "After 12 years to return to the Champions League final is very good for us." Holding midfielder Xabi Alonso will miss Madrids 13th final because of accumulated yellow cards. There is a good omen for Madrid: every time it had defeated a title holder, it went on to win the title -- in 1998, 2000 and 2002, the last two times getting through past Bayern, it the semifinals and quarterfinals, respectively. Madrid had won only two of its 27 previous matches in Germany, with six draws, but it has eliminated three German teams this season in succession -- Schalke, last seasons runner-up Borussia Dortmund and now Bayern. Ancelotti won the competition twice as a player with AC Milan in 1989 and 1990 -- under the European Cup format -- and then twice as coach of Milan in 2003 and 2007. Manny Ramirez Indians Jersey . Gustafsson controlled the first round after getting top position on a throw, and came out much more forcefully in the second, buckling Manuwa with a Muay Thai knee, and finishing him off with strikes on the ground. Ricky Vaughn Indians Jersey . The weekend at Oriole Park has been less kind, with three players suffering varying degrees of injury. The worst ailment of the three, at least optically, is the deep bone bruise suffered by Adam Lind when he fouled a pitch off the top of his right foot in the sixth inning of Saturdays game. . - Gary Kubiak is John Elways No.ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. - Aaron Rodgers, Jordy Nelson and the Green Bay Packers may have watched home-field advantage in the playoffs slip through their fingers.Rodgers was intercepted twice by third-string safety Bacarri Rambo and Nelson dropped a wide-open pass late in the third quarter in a sloppy, inefficient 21-13 loss to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.It wasnt my best day by any stretch of the imagination, Rodgers said. I gotta play better for us to win. I expect more of myself.Rodgers was 17 of 42 for 185 yards, and didnt get much help from his receivers, either. Trailing 16-10 and facing second-and-6 at his own 6, Rodgers found Nelson in stride down the right sideline, but the normally sure-handed receiver dropped the ball with nothing but field in front of him.We had all sorts of chances and just didnt make them for whatever reason, Nelson said. My drop couldve won the game for us, so Ive gotta make those no matter how easy or hard they are.The Packers (10-4) had a five-game win streak snapped and squandered an opportunity to get closer to their sixth consecutive playoff berth.The Bills (8-6) stayed in the thick of a jumbled AFC playoff hunt. Marcus Thigpen scored on a 75-yard punt return, while Dan Carpenter hit all four field-goal attempts, including three in the second half.Eddie Lacy scored on a 1-yard plunge, while Mason Crosby hit two field-goal attempts, and had 53-yard blocked by Mario Williams.The game wasnt decided until the Packers final possession, which ended with yet another turnover by Rodgers.On first-and-10 at his own 10, Rodgers dropped back and had the ball knocked out of his hand by Mario Williams. The ball rolled into the end zone, and lay untouched before being scooped up by Lacy with 1:51 left.The play was whistled dead at that point, because only Rodgers was allowed to advance the ball with under 2 minutes remaining.The turnovers were uncharacteristic for a quarterback who had thrrown only three interceptions this season — and none since throwing two in a 44-23 loss at New Orleans on Oct. Trevor Bauer Jersey. 26.The Packers were held to 333 yards offence — their lowest total since managing 320 in a 42-10 win over Minnesota on Oct. 2. And the Bills held Green Bay to 10 points on eight first-half possessions. The Packers entered the game having scored six touchdowns and four field goals in each of their previous 10 first-half drives spanning the past two games.Green Bay travels to play Tampa Bay next weekend, before closing the regular season at home against NFC North rival Detroit.Everythings right in front of us. If we win out, we still win the North, Rodgers said. This is an important time for us to see what kind of chemistry we have on this team.The Bills went ahead for good when Carpenter capped their second-half opening drive with a 51-yard field goal.The games momentum turned later in the quarter, after Carpenter hit a 35-yard attempt to put Buffalo up 16-10.Two plays into the Packers next possession, Rambo sprinted 10 yards from midfield to make a sliding interception of Rodgers pass intended for Randall Cobb at the Green Bay 45.His second one came on the Packers next drive when Rodgers pass intended for Jarrett Boykin over the middle, tipped off the receivers hands and to Rambo. That set up Carpenter hitting a 48-yard field goal.Starting right tackle Bryan Bulaga sustained a concussion during Rambos second interception return. Rambo was playing after backup safety Duke Williams experienced concussion-like symptoms early in the second half.Thigpen provided a spark after the Bills offence combined for one first down and 12 yards on its first three possessions.With Buffalo trailing 3-0, Thigpen fielded Tim Masthays punt at the right hash mark, and then cut across the field to find a hole up the left side.___AP NFL website: and ' ' '
