This wasn't the plan.

Bayern Munich headed back to the Grünwalder Stadion for the return leg of their Champions League tie with FC Twente full of confidence. With a 1-1 draw in the first leg, Thomas Wörle's side believed that they had the team that could see them through to the next round. However, Twente had other plans.

The Dutch club marched into Munich and left with a 2-2 draw to dump the Bundesliga champions out of the competition on away goals. Goals from Lisa Evans and Melanie Behringer weren't enough to keep the Bavarians from advancing to the Round of 16.

While knowing that his team didn't do enough to win, Coach Wörle said after the match that the club's inexperience in the Champions League was evident in their lack of urgency in front of goal to finish their chances. It also didn't help that several of Bayern's top players are out with injuries. However, he made a point to congratulate FC Twente on their victory.

The club did set a record that they will have wanted to avoid. Bayern Munich became the first Bundesliga side to be eliminated in the Round of 32. Ever.

FC Bayern will return to the field on Sunday at home against SC Freiburg. Then, they will enter a two week long international break filled with Euro 2017 qualifiers.
