Bayern has the advantage, indeed, but the important thing here is that our players have now been able to go into the dressing room with their heads held high after experiencing that we can be on par with them if we bring our A-game. Which, unfortunately for us, happened way too late for our own good in this match, but once it happened we were great.
Our players can now be confident we can at least go to the Allianz and frustrate them and that we have a slight hope of going through. After having gone down 0-2 with everything seeming to be dead, I'll definitely take that.
And then we dominated them the last 30 minutes. Ie. Upped our performance. Seized momentum in the tie... We have the momentum going into the second match. Will we keep it? Who knows... But writing us off is just stupid.
A much worse result for us would have been going up 2-0 and allowing Bayern to come back and tie it 2-2... Going down 2-2 and showing the kind of response we did is absolutely huge in every regard for our players mentality and belief.
Still in the tie brave performance in the end. So happy for Hernanes delivering a good performance at last. I have to say I'm slightly disappointed by our CBs both made too many mistakes today. Hopefully Chiellini is back for the away game he is the warrior we need in these big games.
Goal is not offside although I can understand if it would have been called offside
Penalty?! Nope his arm barely moved - The ball was shot into his arm so no penalty there...
However the ref was disgusting - Too many fouls not being given and Lewandowski should have got a red card!
