Bayern Survive Juventus Scare To Win 4-2 AET, 6-4 Aggregate

By Johnny Edward:

​Bayern Munich came from two goals down to beat Juventus 4-2 and qualify for the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League  6-4 on aggregates at the Allianz Arena in a game of two halves.

Extra time goals from Thiago Alcantara and Kingsley Coman sealed the Bavarians' place in the next round of the competition despite early strikes from Paul Pogba and Juan Cuadrado in the first half.

In a pulsating encounter at the Allianz Arena, the Old Lady raced to an early lead in the sixth minute through Pogba who capitalized on a poor defending to tap into an open goal after Manuel Neuer had come off his line when David Alaba couldn't clear his lines. 


Chelsea loanee, Juan Cuadrado doubled the lead with a fantastic goal following a brilliant counter-attack when Morata raced through the Bayern defence from his own half to get past three Bayern players before passing the ball out right to Cuadrado, who switches feet and evades Phillpe Lahm before firing the ball past Neuer and into the top right corner to hand Juve a 2-0 lead into the intervals.

Bayern constant pressure paid off when Robert Lewandowski headed home Douglas Costa in the 73rd minute to give the hosts a lifeline in the encounter.

Pep Guardiola's men restored parity in the stoppage time when Thomas Muller powered home a Kingsley Coman's fine cross to send the game into extra time.

At the restart of the second half of extra time, Bayern scored two quick goals in the spate of two minutes from substitutes Thiago Alcantara and Kingsley Coman.

The Spanish international Alcantara put Bayern ahead for the first time in the encounter after a lovely one-two with Muller in the 108th minute before former Juve winger Coman struck  nice curling shot from inside the box.
