Bayern Get Comeback Win Against Sevilla
Bayern Munich fought back with a deflected own goal and a late header from Thiago to claim a 2-1 win at Sevilla in an exciting Champions League quarterfinal, first leg clash on Tuesday.
Sevilla made the brighter start and led when midfielder Pablo Sarabia scored after earlier missing a golden opportunity from eight yards at Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.
However, five minutes later Bayern levelled when Sevilla’s Jesus Navas agonisingly deflected Franck Ribery‘s cross past home goalkeeper David Soria at the near post.
With Sevilla tiring, five-time European champions Bayern took advantage and Thiago headed the winner with the help of a deflection off Sergio Escudero in the 68th minute.
Jupp Heynckes, who returned in October for a third spell in charge of five-time European champions Bayern, has now won his past 12 Champions League games.
His side will retain their Bundesliga title if they win at Augsburg on Saturday, four days before the return leg of this tie at the Allianz Arena.
