Bayern Munich finally end worst goal drought under Ancelotti

Robert Lewandowski broke a dry spell that spanned 208 minutes by firing home from the penalty spot against Real Madrid

Bayern Munich are teetering on the brink in the Champions League, and the German giants can point to a recent lack of goals as the principal culprit.

Dani Alves rules out Barca return

After opening the scoring against Real Madrid through Arturo Vidal last week, Bayern conceded a Cristiano Ronaldo brace to go down 2-1.

Having drawn a blank at the weekend away to Leverkusen, the return of Robert Lewandowski failed to inspire the Bavarians to a breakthrough in the Champions League second leg as they went into half-time 0-0.

That means Carlo Ancelotti's men went 208 minutes without hitting the net, the longest period in the coach's tenure.

It was finally left to Lewandowski to break the drought, as the Polish striker marked his return to action by steering home a penalty early after the break.

Lewandowski's goal could also give Bayern cause for optimism in their bid to reach the semi-finals, judging by the above stat.
