Gritty Bayern Munich come back from the dead to win thriller against Juventus

Bayern Munich 4-2 Juventus (Bayern won 6-4 on aggregate)

By Staff Reporter

Pep Guardiola's Bayern Munich completed an impressive Champions League comeback over 120 minutes to reach the quarter-finals at the expense of Juventus.

The Serie A leaders - and last year's beaten finalists - thought they had done enough to eliminate Bayern in their own Allianz Arena thanks to first-half goals from Paul Pogba and Juan Cuadrado.

But Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Muller struck after the break to send the game into extra-time, and Thiago Alcantara and Kingsley Coman earned Bayern a 4-2 win, 6-4 on aggregate.

Guardiola will watch tomorrow's draw with interest as he looks to avoid former side Barcelona and future team Man City.
