Manuel Neuer, Roman Weidenfeller Saves Dominate Champions League Final First Half (VIDEOS)

Neuer 0, Weidenfeller 0.

This was the most accurate description of the halftime score of the Champions League final between Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund. The German goalkeepers -- Manuel Neuer and Roman Weidenfeller -- withstood point-blank shots to keep the end-to-end action at Wembley Stadium without a goal through the first forty-five minutes.

With Dortmund more energetic at the start, Neuer was quickly forced into action in the Bayern net. He was up to the early challenges -- both on the ground and through the air.

At the other end of the pitch, Weidenfeller proved Neuer's equal in the first half, notably blocking a shot (with his face) from Bayern striker Arjen Robben far from his line in a one-on-one situation.
