Bayern Munich bagged a late goal from striker Mario Gomez to secure a narrow 1-0 away win over Inter Milan in the first leg of their Champions League last 16 clash at the San Siro on Wednesday.
The 25-year old’s last-minute strike earned the Germans a deserved victory and revenge over last season’s Champions League winners.
Bayern will defend their one-goal lead on home turf, with the second leg scheduled for the 15th of March at the Allianz Arena.
In the other game, Manchester United were held to a frustrating goalless draw by Marseille at the Stade Velodrome.
Chances were few and far between as the respective champions of English and French football cancelled each other out.
Neither manager looked overly disappointed with the final score and Sir Alex Ferguson’s men will have left the pitch knowing that the tie is still in their own hands.
