Bayern Munich were held to a draw by Shakhtar Donetsk despite the Ukrainian team having to play their home match “away from home” due to the crisis in Ukraine.
Bayern Munich dominated the entire match but struggled to find a breakthrough with Robben consistently driving into the box. Gotze was rendered in effective as Muller struggled against a very mobile Shakhtar defense. Bayern Munich finished the game with 10 men after Alonso was sent off in the second half for a second bookable offense. Shahktar who were playing their home match in Lviv, over 900 kilometers away from Donetsk were relentless in defense all night.
Bayern would look to get the job done at the Allianz Arena in two weeks’ time when they take on the Ukrainians again.
