"That was a crazy game," said goalscorer Mueller. "We knew, even when we were 2-0 down, that we were still in it."

Pep Guardiola said Bayern had the wow factor. "Four goals against an Italian team. Wow!

"I don't know how often that has happened in history. It was a great game for the fans. We played against last season's finalists and to come back from 2-0 down is very hard."
