Bayern through after Juve thriller


Bayern Munich are through to the last eight of the Champions League for the seventh time in eight years, but they were made to fight all the way by Juventus before progressing 4-2 on the night after extra-time, and 6-4 on aggregate.

The German champions were all at sea in the opening stages, as Paul Pogba and Alvaro Morata made it 2-0 on the night for the Serie A leaders, and Max Allegri's side could have made it 3-0 just before the break if Manuel Neuer hadn't made a brilliant stop to deny Juan Cuadrado.

But Pep Guardiola's Bayern kept fighting, and Robert Lewandowski reduced the deficit 17 minutes from time with his 43rd goal of the season in his 43rd match, and then Thomas Muller headed home an injury-time equaliser from substitute Kingley Coman's cross to send the match into extra time.

Thiago Alcantara and Coman then netted in extra time to ensure that Bayern will be in Friday's quarter final draw.

For Juve, questions must be asked of manager Max Allegri, who won the tactical battle then squandered the initiative by taking off Cuadrado and Morata as the match moved towards extra time.

There must also be questions of the Juve recruitment policy, in letting Coman leave on a two-year loan to the German champions.

The 19-year-old, who scored one goal and set up another, joins Thibaut Courtois in the select group of players who have knocked their parent club out of the Champions League.
