The visitors came back strong in the second half, with Cristiano Ronaldo grabbing his first two minutes in the second half.
After a hard loss, Bayern manager Carlo Ancelotti was quoted to be saying by Reuters, "Small details have decided the game".
Bayern should have been 2-0 up at the break, but Arturo Vidal, who headed the hosts into a first-half lead, skied a penalty.
Ronaldo reached 50 goals in April 2013 after 96 matches that was despite only scoring once in his first 32 European appearances for Sporting CP and United.

Yet Real remain at La Liga's summit and with the upper hand in their Champions League quarter-final, proving that even a Ronaldo performing below his best may be enough to win some of the biggest accolades in European football.
However, Bayern chairman Rummenigge is sure their star striker will be ready to play in the return fixture at the Santiago Bernabeu next Tuesday.
