Bayern München’s coach is eyeing a win in the CL semifinal showdown against Real Madrid. Ultimately, Heynckes is hoping to lead his team to an unprecedented second treble
Bayern Munich's quest for another treble under Jupp Heynckes is over after defeat in the Champions League at the hands of Real Madrid. A 2-2 draw in Madrid was not enough for the Bavarians, who bow out 4-3 on aggregate.
Defeat at the hands of the Spanish club in last year's quarterfinal still stings and vengeance will be top of the agenda when the sides meet on Wednesday. Win, and a second treble is within touching distance for Bayern.
Bayern Munich’s German Cup semifinal tie in Leverkusen does not boast the prestige of a European meeting with Real Madrid, but could prove more pivotal to ending a turbulent season with another treble.
An own-goal and a Thiago Alcantara header turned the game in Bayern's favor after Sevilla had taken a deserved first-half lead. Jupp Heynckes' team dominated the second half and were rewarded with two away goals.
