AC Milan pips Bayern Munich on penalties in Chicago

AC Milan and Bayern Munich played out an entertaining 3-3 draw at Soldier Field in Chicago, with the Italian giants taking out the win in a penalty shootout.

M’baye Niang had Vincenzo Montella’s side up early with a well taken strike from outside the box. The lead, however, only lasted six minutes before Franck Ribery brought the German champions level.
The two sides continued to trade goals throughout the match, with David Alaba scoring for Bayern and both Andrea Bertolacci and Juraj Kucka getting on the scoresheet for Milan.
Ribery ensured that the game would be decided from the spot by slotting a 90th-minute penalty into to the bottom right corner.
That, however, only delayed Milan’s victory, with the Rossoneri scoring all their penalties to win the shootout 5-3.
