Bayern Munich 2-1 Atletico Madrid: Atletico oust Bayern to reach Champions League final

Atletico Madrid reached the Champions League final for the second time in three seasons on Tuesday, going through on away goals after a 2-1 defeat at Bayern Munich, in which both sides missed a penalty, with the tie finishing 2-2 on aggregate.

Atletico, who will face either city rivals Real Madrid, who beat them in the 2014 final, or Manchester City, who meet in the second semi-final on Wednesday, also spoiled Bayern's treble chances after the Spaniards won the first leg 1-0 last week.

Bayern took the lead with a Xabi Alonso goal in the 31st minute but Atletico levelled through Antoine Griezmann's seventh goal of the competition in the 54th. Robert Lewandowski set up a dramatic finale with his 74th minute goal but it was not enough.

Thoms Mueller missed a first half penalty for Bayern and Atletico's Fernando Torres had an 85th minute spot kick saved but the final score was enough for Bayern's third straight elimination by a Spanish team at this stage in their three seasons under Spaniard Pep Guardiola
