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. [url=http://www.cheapgaintsjerseyselite.com/]Cheap New York Giants Jerseys China[/url] ." 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.

Atlantas third error in the last two innings allowed Jackie Bradley Jr. [url=http://www.cheapgaintsjerseyselite.com/]Wholesale New York Giants Jerseys[/url] . The Bulls seem to be getting along fine without him. D.J. Augustin scored 27 points in a start for Kirk Hinrich and Taj Gibson matched a career high with 26 filling in for Carlos Boozer as the Bulls improved to 7-2 since trading the popular Deng with a 98-87 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday night.

The Buffalo Sabres, though, have been a stingy home team lately and will try to win for a sixth time in seven games at First Niagara Center Thursday night against the Flames. Calgary (17-10-2) is making a second stop on a four-game trip, which started with Tuesdays 4-1 loss in Toronto. That followed Saturdays 3-2 home loss to San Jose, but the players arent yet reading into the brief slide as anything to cause major concern. I think the last two games for the most part weve been pretty good, just a couple stretches where turnovers led to goals, forward Paul Byron told the teams official website. If we can take those out the teams been playing good otherwise. The Flames have been limited to three goals in those two games, but it hasnt stopped defenseman Mark Giordano from continuing his stellar season. The 31-year-old has a five-game point streak, ranks first among NHL defensemen with 29 points, and coach Bob Hartley says his leading presence has had plenty of impact on the Flames turnaround. For me, I have made lots of good moves and bad moves in my coaching career, but I would rank putting Mark Giordano captain of this hockey club probably as the best move of my career, Hartley said. Buffalo (10-16-2) is still seeking such leadership but has taken a strong step forward in recent weeks. It defeated Los Angeles 1-0 on Tuesday for a fifth home win in six tries while limiting opponents to seven goals. The success comes on the heels of a 1-6-2 home start, and it has three more games on the homestand to further correct things. Overall, the Sabres have won seven of 10. Against the Kings, Tyler Ennis sparked a dormant power play, and Jhoonas Enroth made 34 saves in his first shutout of the season. [url=http://www.cheapgaintsjerseyselite.com/?tag=cheap-orleans-darkwa-jersey]Cheap Orleans Darkwa Jersey[/url]. Ennis third-period winner was part of a 1-for-4 night on the power play, which the Sabres had preceded with a 5-for-76 (6.6 percent) season mark. Theyve still got plenty of work to improve on their league-worst mark, and it might be difficult to do against Calgary. The Flames have stayed out of the penalty box lately and killed 9 of 10 over the last seven games. Enroth will make his ninth start in 10 games against the Flames, and hes 6-2-0 with a 1.79 goals-against average in his last eight overall appearances. His .947 save percentage is the best in hockey among goaltenders with more than three games dating to Nov. 18. Hes playing great, Ennis said of Enroth. Hes one of the biggest factors why weve been winning this last month. When we break down hes there to make a good save. Hes 1-0-1 with a 1.49 GAA against Calgary, though his counterpart has also been strong lately. Karri Ramo will start for the Flames and brings with him a 1.99 GAA over a 6-1-0 stretch after suffering the loss to the Sharks. His two career starts against the Sabres have both come in Buffalo and yielded a 1-1-0 record and 3.54 GAA. Calgary has one win in its last 10 visits to Buffalo, but it came last season as the Flames swept the two-game season set. Byron scored in both but has matched a career-worst span of eight games without a point.
