Red Bull Salzburg and Bayern Munich tied 1-1 on Wednesday in a match calculated for the first leg of the Champions League round of 16. The second match in a row for the Bavarians without a win, after the defeat (2-4) in Bochum, in the last round of the German League. The Austrian, who had won all three home matches in the group stage, was on the verge of beating Julian Nagelsmann’s side. A goal by Frenchman Kingsley Coman in the last minute prevented defeat.
Bayern Munich’s poor performance, unrecognizable, fell to Koeman’s plays and Leroy Sane, with Thomas Muller and Lewandowski without the ball and without chances. The great first part of the Austrians, revitalized by German Ademi and North American Aaronson. Okafor was injured at the beginning, and the substitute Adamo was in the 21st minute, ahead of Salzburg. Adamu’s play from the left and Adamu’s great epilogue.
The best chances were always in favor of the Austrians, and the best of them came in the second half, as Adeyemi shot past Ulrich and Adamou shot on target. Pavard cut over the goal line. Bayern Munich had only one sovereign chance in the second half, in a counterattack with Koeman and Sane. The Frenchman scored in the last minute, in a deviation towards the far post, after a long ball from Pavard.
The return leg will be held in Munich on March 8.
