However, Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Muller scored in almost identical fashion in the second half to force extra-time, the Guardian reported.

Subsequently, Thiago Alcantara netted in the 108th minute before Kingsley Coman curled in their fourth goal two minutes later as Bayern completed a 4-2 win over the Italian rivals in the second leg of the round-of-16.

With the win, Pep Guardiola maintained his hopes of a Champions League title in his last season in Munich.
