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.

Real were first out the blocks in the second half, as Benzema capitalised on a awful mistake from Sven Ulreich to bag his second of the night and put Madrid back in control.

Real Madrid will be eyeing a third straight appearance in the UEFA Champions League final when they host Bayern Munich in the second leg of their semi-final tie.

By successfully defending their 2-1 win from the first leg last week, Madrid stayed on track for a third consecutive European title, and fourth in five seasons.

Defeat was harsh on Bayern, who dominated large spells of the game. Cristiano Ronaldo shot wide before Benzema put Madrid back in the driving seat, as he headed home from Marcelo's cross.

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.

The visitors then spurned a gilt-edged opportunity just after the half-hour mark as Rodriguez volleyed over from in front of goal after Keylor Navas saved from Robert Lewandowski.

Ronaldo scored a phenomenal overhead kick in the quarter-finals, as Real defeated Juventus and, though the legendary Brazilian won the World Cup along with numerous other trophies, he insists even he has not tried to score such a goal.

Real Madrid are through to another Champions League final.

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

Bayern were not killed off and Navas did well to save a powerful shot from David Alaba, which took a wicked deflection. A back-pass from Corentin Tolisso came to Bayern goalkeeper Sven Ulrich, and as he went down to pick the ball up under pressure from Benzema, he realized too late that he could not use his hands on a back-pass.

They pressed to the end, forcing Real into a rearguard action, but could not find a way through.
