FCB banish dismay and focus on future

In a thrilling and dramatic final ten minutes, Bayern mounted a furious onslaught on the Dortmund goal on Wednesday night, but aside from Neven Subotic’s header against his own crossbar in stoppage time, the men in red could not fashion a clear enough chance to level the scores. At the end of the day, a deserved draw was not to be.

“We simply have to accept that the fates were definitely not on Bayern Munich's side this evening," chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge summarised following the unlucky 1–0 defeat in front of a raucous 80,720 full house at Signal Iduna Park, in which BVB striker Robert Lewandowski back-heeled the only goal of the game after 77 minutes. “At the end of the day, we lacked the little bit of luck you need," coach Jupp Heynckes reflected.
