The attacking midfielder has been in great form for Bayern Munich this season, where he’s on-loan from Los Blancos, and played for the German champions against his parent club in tonight’s Champions League semi-final first-leg.
The Allianz erupts!
Joshua Kimmich hammers Bayern into the lead! 🙌

Midway through the first-half, Rodriguez showed his paymasters at Real exactly what they’ve been missing when he provided an absolutely delicious assist for the game’s opening goal.
Of course, when Rodriguez moved to Bayern last year, he was heavily linked with a string of Europe’s top clubs, including Chelsea, and his classy display tonight has Blues fans kicking themselves:
James Rodriguez is such a good player, really needed him at Chelsea this season ffs

Throwback to when Chelsea fans, including myself, didn't want James at Chelsea. I regret saying that so much now

James Rodriguez at Chelsea? Would he have fared well at Stamford Bridge under Antonio Conte?
What do you think?
