Bayern Munich eliminated in Champions League again: Bundesliga giants recent history of falling short
Bayern Munich’s Champions League journey came up short once again as Julian Nagelsmann’s side was stunned by Villarreal’s late series winner at the Allianz Arena.
Villarreal’s 1-0 first leg lead kept Unai Emery’s visiting Spanish side in line for a last-four spot in the first half before Robert Lewandowski fired the Bavarians level on aggregate after the restart.
