Thomas Muller Sees Red For Karate Kick On Ajax Player

Thomas Muller Sees Red For Karate Kick On Ajax Player”

The forward was dismissed in fairly uncontroversial circumstances when, in attempting to bring down a high ball, he inadvertently planted his studs into the head of Ajax defender Nicolas Tagliafico.

And Tagliafico replied to Muller's tweet, saying he was fine.

It was the second red card in the match with Maximilian Wober being sent off for Ajax in the 67th minute.

Robert Lewandowski scored twice and substitute Kingsley Coman looked to have grabbed a victor for Bayern in the 90th minute before defender Tagliafico tapped in the equalizer five minutes into stoppage time of a match that saw both sides have a man sent off and both awarded a penalty by referee Clement Turpin.

While Bayern progressed to the last 16 as group winners, Lewandowski - who ended the phase as the leading scorer ahead of Lionel Messi with eight goals - was not satisfied.

"The red card for Thomas was fair as well".

However, a patched up Tagliafico got into the Bayern box five minutes into added time and helped forced an own goal through Niklas Sule to snatch a draw for the Dutch. "You only have to see how the lad looked afterwards - it wasn't good", said Goretzka.

Both teams had already sealed their progression to the last 16 of the Champions League but both sides would have wanted to finish Group E in first place. "Both red cards correct".

Ajax looked like they might snatch top spot in the pool when Tadic put them ahead via the penalty spot, but that lead lasted only four minutes as Lewandowski also converted from the spot.

The draw for the round of 16 takes place on Monday.

Elsewhere on an eventful night of Champions League action, CSKA Moscow inflicted a 3-0 defeat on Real Madrid at the Bernabeu - the Spanish club's worst-ever European home loss - although the Russians still finished bottom of the group after Viktoria Plzen beat Roma 2-1.

He was named Bundesliga player of the year after his first season in Germany in 2009/10 and has won 19 major trophies with Bayern, including seven Bundesliga titles.
