Julio Cesar walks home after Bayern error

A distraught Julio Cesar walked home on foot from San Siro last night, after his mistake gifted Bayern Munich a 1-0 first leg advantage.
Inter’s Brazilian goalkeeper spilled an Arjen Robben shot into the path of Mario Gomez to score in injury time, leaving Leonardo’s men with an uphill task in the second leg, and Julio Cesar collecting his thoughts on the walk back to his nearby home.
The holders were left to rue a number of missed chances, with Andrea Ranocchia, Samuel Eto’o and Esteban Cambiasso all guilty of profligacy in front of goal.
Despite the host’s inability to find the net, it was Julio Cesar apologising to his team-mates after the game, leaving the Bundesliga outfit now favourites to progress.
Wesley Sneijder insisted that Inter had deserved to win, but in truth, it was Bayern who looked the more dangerous throughout, with Robben and the revitalised Frank Ribery causing problems for the Inter defence.
Speaking to RAI, Sneijder said: “We deserved to win – we played well and created a lot of chances – but the reality is that we lost, even if it’s not over yet.
“We all knew they had quality players, especially in attack. We did well – we just lacked goals. In Munich it will be difficult, but it’s not over yet.”

Inter coach Leonardo defended his attacking approach and was quick to absolve blame from his goalkeeper.
He said: “Julio Cesar has no need to apologise. There were many chances in this game and it’s part of the sport. He parried it and the goal could have come in other moves, just as we had the opportunities to score.”
The Nerazzurri now turn their attention to Serie A, where they travel to Sampdoria in Sunday’s late kick-off.
