Ouch! That is going to leave a mark.
Robert Lewandowski opened the scoring for Bayern Munich in the first half. Dušan Tadić would equalise in the second half, with the 30-year-old Serbian handing his side a 2-1 lead after tucking away a penalty.
The Polish striker would fire back for the reigning Bundesliga champions after finding the back of the net from the spot kick.
Kingsley Coman scored Bayern's third and it looked like the German side would secure a 3-2 victory over Ajax, but Niklas Süle's own goal would end the match 3-3 at the Johan Cruyff Arena.
Both teams were reduced to ten men in the second half.
