Atletico oust Bayern to reach Champions League final

Atletico Madrid reached the Champions League final for the second time in three seasons on Tuesday (3 May), going through on away goals after a 2-1 defeat at Bayern Munich, in which both sides missed a penalty, with the tie finishing 2-2 on aggregate.

Atletico, who will face either city rivals Real Madrid, who beat them in the 2014 final, or Manchester City, who meet in the second semifinal on Wednesday (4 May), also spoiled Bayern’s treble chances after the Spaniards won the first leg 1-0 last week.

Bayern took the lead with a Xabi Alonso goal in the 31st minute but Atletico leveled through Antoine Griezmann’s seventh goal of the competition in the 54th. Robert Lewandowski set up a dramatic finale with his 74th minute goal but it was not enough.

Thomas Mueller missed a first-half penalty for Bayern and Atletico’s Fernando Torres had an 85th minute spot kick saved as Bayern suffered a third-straight elimination by a Spanish team at this stage in their three seasons under Pep Guardiola.
