Aston Villa have also triumphed over Hamburger SV 4-3 on aggregate, meaning Beckham's Bayern will be clashing with his old boys at Villa.
Now managed by former Cardiff and West Ham manager Malky Mackay
, Villa have been sensational in the Premier League after Beckham's departure with Mackay leading his new troops to 4th place in the league.
This has come as a shock to many, who had predicted for then 14th-placed Villa to fall further down after Beckham left the club to join up with Bayern Munchen.
After finding out about Aston Villa's victory against Hamburger, Beckham expressed his delight at being able to go head to head with "a club he loves" as well as being able to "return to a place he can call home", which, in this case, refers to Villa Park, the home ground of Aston Villa, a stadium Beckham will be familiar with after his five-year spell at the Villa helm.
It will certainly be an interesting reunion.
