Tottenham Hotspur and FC Bayern Munich faced off their final Champions League group game with both sides safely in the next round prior to the game which the Germans won by 3 goals to 1. The Bundesliga Champions defeated last season’s finalist, a team currently in transition with their old manager Mauricio Pochettino having being sacked in November and the highly-rated Portuguese, Jose Mourihno coming in as his replacement.
Bayern who had earlier in the season whitewashed the Londoners 7-2 in their first meeting of the current Champions League season picked up where they left off by scoring the first goal of the game through Kingsley Coman.
Still charged from a series of big wins recently in the English Premier League Spurs hit back through Ryan Sessegnon in what was only his first start since joining the club. He showed great composure to bring a pass under control inside the area and rifle a powerful finish beyond Manuel Neuer.
Bayern lost their goal scorer to an early injury and Thomas Muller came on as a substitute and he found the back of the net just before the break to put his team up by 2 goals to 1.
The party continued in the second half when former Barcelona man Phillipe Coutinho went close to scoring a spectacular but his characteristic long-range drive cannoned off the underside of the crossbar before Spurs eventually cleared their lines.
He finally got his reward for a brilliant showing on the night when he curled the ball into the bottom corner from the edge of the box.
Tottenham will face one of Barcelona, Juventus, Paris-St-Germain, Valencia or RB Leipzig in the round of 16 with the draw on Monday.
