Bayern 1-1 Salzburg: Coman Scores A Late Equalizer To Rescue Bayern From Defeat

Bayern Munich escaped a stunning defeat away at RB Salzburg in the first leg of their Champions League last 16 encounter on Wednesday evening, thanks to a 90th-minute equalizer from Kingsley Coman.

The Bavarians’ messiah came late in the game, when they had been pressurizing on their opponents and it appeared like they would end the night empty-handed and with a serious work on their hands in the return leg on March 8.

Bayern got the first chance, but Serge Gnabry’s strike was brilliantly saved, setting off a pattern of frustration that would last for the rest of the evening.

Salzburg’s already difficult assignment was made even more difficult after 12 minutes, when Noah Okafor was forced to be replaced by Chukwubuike Adamu due to an injury problem.

Adamu, on the other hand, made an immediate impact after only nine minutes. Bayern was opened by a long ball on the right, and Salzburg did well to work it to Adamu, who arrived in the box to complete a curling effort and give the hosts an unexpected lead.

Adamu continued to cause trouble, soon becoming a supplier for Brenden Aaronson, but the American was unable to convert on the chance that presented itself, seeing his shot blocked.

Bayern dominated the rest of the game and flooded forward for the rest of the half half. Salzburg held off the most of the pressure, but it was finally too much for them, and the Germans were able to draw level with the game’s final kick.

Thomas Muller punished a brief lapse in concentration by flicking a long ball on to Coman, who finished at the back post.
