AUDI Cup: FCB edge out Milan on penalties

Postby FCBayernNews » Tue Jul 26, 2011 10:20 pm

It is the AUDI Cup 2011 final everyone at Bayern wanted to see: the men from Munich held their nerve against AC Milan on Tuesday evening, booking a place in Wednesday's final with a 5-3 penalty shoot-out victory over the Serie A champions after a 1-1 draw in normal time. Germany's biggest club now meet Barcelona, who also needed penalties before overcoming Porto Alegre giants SC Internacional in the first semi-final.

A 66,000 sell-out crowd at the Allianz Arena saw a one-sided contest between the home heroes and the visitors from northern Italy. Jupp Heynckes' men controlled the play throughout, but had to chase the game at first after Zlatan Ibrahimovic's fourth-minute opener for AC. Toni Kroos netted the overdue equaliser before the break, but Munich were unable to turn their dominance into further goals in normal time. The game went straight to penalties, where Bayern converted all five of their spot-kicks, but Alberto Paloschi skied Milan's fourth.
