In a 1-1 draw against Bayern Munich, Erling Haaland scored after missing a penalty to help Manchester City advance to the semifinals.

The visitors avoided a larger scare when their former winger Leroy Sane raced through on goal but shot wide after Kingsley Coman twice got clear down the right in the first minutes. Dayot Upamecano’s red card for tripping Haaland as he broke free caused controversy at the other end, but the judgment was reversed after a flag was raised for offside. After a penalty was awarded for handball by Upamecano,the hosts did their utmost to prolong the penalty kick, and Haaland’s spot kick went over the bar.

In the second half, Erling Haaland opened the scoring after being set on goal by Kevin De Bruyne and was helped when Upamecano slipped in his box. Joshua Kimmich scored on a penalty kick to level the score for the night, but it was too late to rescue anything from the game.

Manchester City went through and will face Real Madrid in the semi-finals.
