Inter overturned their first-leg loss at San Siro and a 3-1 aggregate deficit as they earned a last-gasp 3-2 victory over Bayern Munich and booked their spot in the Champions League quarter finals.

It took less than four minutes for Inter to get their away goal with a typical poacher’s finish by Samuel Eto’o after the Cameroon internation was played in by Goran Pandev. In the 21st minute, Bayern drew level with a little help from Julio Cesar, who spilled Arjen Robben’s long-range blast before Mario Gomez netted from a clever overhead kick.

Ten minutes later, Dejan Stankovic deflected Robben’s through ball into the path of Thomas Muller, who flicked his side into a 2-1 lead with the outside of his right foot.

The match changed considerably in the second half as Inter grew in confidence. Wesley Sneijder fired in a gorgeous daisy cutter on 63 minutes, and the looked to be more dangerous. Goran Pandev settled the tie on 88 minutes with a brilliant finish from the edge of the penalty area.

After struggling in the opening minutes, the hosts grew more confident following Gomez’s goal, and created more than enough clear chances to score a third. Franck Ribery skipped past Andrea Ranocchia on 35 minutes but Cesar atoned for his earlier mistake with a tremendous save.

Shortly thereafter, Gomez had his effort roll across the goal line before Ranocchia’s clearance deflected off the post. Robben was through on goal two minutes before the break, but only managed to hit the side netting.

For their part, Inter had enough opportunities to reclaim the lead, but Stankovic put his effort wide from the centre of the penalty box. Sneijder also came close from a free kick, but his dipping effort went harmlessly over the bar.

In the second half, the hosts were comparatively flat in attack, and Gomez’s saved volley on 62 minutes was their only real chance on goal to make it 3-2. Sneijder’s goal, coupled with Robben’s substitution on 68 minutes, marked the teams’ role reversal. On 67 minutes, Pandev fired over the bar, but the Macedonian made no mistake with his brilliantly struck winner.

The result sees Inter through to the quarter finals again as Serie A’s flagship team. Bayern crash out to Inter for the second consecutive year, and will be without silverware in 2011.
