Heading into the last game in Group B both Bayern Munich and Tottenham Hotspur had already booked their place into the last 16. Irregardless of the result Munich were heading into the last 16 as group B winners and Spurs as the runners up. Both teams made numerous changes for the final group clash at the Allianz Arena.
Bayern broke the deadlock early on with Kingsley Coman finding space on the far post unmarked, burying the ball into the bottom right corner in the 13th minute.
Ryan Sessegnon equalised for Spurs in the 19th minute, smashing the ball passed Manuel Neuer into the left side of the net. This marked Sessegnon’s first goal for the club, an impressive feat in what was also his first start for Spurs.
Kingsley Coman suffered a horrific looking knee injury in the 27th minute. The Frenchman hyperextending his knee whilst chasing the ball.
Munich fired themselves back into the lead just on the stroke of halftime with substitute Thomas Muller drilling the ball into the middle of the goal following a deflection off the post.
Phillipe Coutinho doubled the lead for Munich in the 63rd minute with a brilliant shot from outside of the box, placing it into the bottom right corner.
