He was completely wrong. Despite a goal by Robert Lewandowski, Kingsley Coman and his teammates hit the door of the C1 (1-1).And in the face.Suffice it to say, the shock to his squad is harsh.

It hurts a lot to concede a goal despite our performance. We pushed, pushed, pushed“, Thomas Müller analyzed after the encounter. He too struggled to get off the pitch after the final whistle, almost in disbelief at a scenario he probably never could have imagined. Especially not when the extension seemed inevitable. But the “yellow submarine” finally sank the Bayern ship.
