They showed they can compete with Manchester City, but Bayern couldn’t pull off the much-touted miracle. Munich said goodbye to Europe with a 1-1 draw against the English champions.
Bayern can storm, but scoring goals is more than difficult for them at the moment. The Munich team ran into the Manchester box and made the “Citizens” swim a few times. But Leroy Sané (17th, 22nd) and Kingsley Coman (42nd) lacked shooting luck to make up for the 3-0 loss from the first leg.
Manchester star Haaland shoots penalties into the clouds
In between there was slapstick. Confused referee Clément Turpin pointed to the spot when first-leg tragedy Dayot Upamecano elbowed the ball – a penalty for Manchester City.

The difference from back then: Haaland’s missed shot didn’t hurt his team – which was also due to the Norwegian himself. When Bayern continued to open up after the break, Haaland (57th) completed a counterattack with his customary precision to make it 0-1 – the final decision. Joshua Kimmich (83rd) only scored to equalize with a hand penalty that was again questionable.
