What happened
Miroslav Klose headed a last-minute winner as Bayern saw off a Viola side who had Massimo Gobbi dismissed (73) after Per Krøldrup cancelled Arjen Robben's opener.

Key moment
Bayern were bracing themselves for an awkward half-time team talk when Krøldrup halted Franck Ribéry in added time – Tom Henning Øvrebø pointed to the spot.

Numbers game
Louis van Gaal's side had scored at least three goals in each of their last five matches but two were enough to extend their winning run to 13 games in all competitions.

Bayern v Fiorentina - AT A GLANCE

What happened
Miroslav Klose headed a last-minute winner as Bayern saw off a Viola side who had Massimo Gobbi dismissed (73) after Per Krøldrup cancelled Arjen Robben's opener.

Key moment
Bayern were bracing themselves for an awkward half-time team talk when Krøldrup halted Franck Ribéry in added time – Tom Henning Øvrebø pointed to the spot.

Numbers game
Louis van Gaal's side had scored at least three goals in each of their last five matches but two were enough to extend their winning run to 13 games in all competitions.

One on one
Save for Mark van Bommel's full-blooded challenge on Riccardo Montolivo there was little direct confrontation between captains but they had enough defending to do.

Crowd pleaser
Dazzling throughout, Robben was at his brilliant best just before the opener as he cut inside and flicked a pass to Thomas Müller – the striker demonstrated less poise.

What it means
Fiorentina's hopes of reaching the quarter-finals for the first time rest on them defeating a Bayern team that overwhelmed Juventus 4-1 on their last trip to Italy.
