Soccer: Goal-rich test draw at Bayern – Salzburg

After goals from Leroy Sane (9th) and Sekou Koita (16th), there was a goal festival after the break, with Salzburg giving up a 3-1 lead. Goals from Karim Konate (50′) and Noah Okafor (54′, 89′) were not enough for a prestigious success, as the hosts also had Arijon Ibrahimovic (69′), Kingsley Coman (71′) and Mathys Tel (88′) were successful.

The “Bulls” led onto the field by captain Nicolas Seiwald in the absence of the ailing Andreas Ulmer sold much better than in the 7-1 debacle in the round of 16 second leg of the past Champions League season in the Allianz Arena. “There’s still a lot to do, and Bayern made that very clear to us. We will work through the weak points that caught our eye today in detail. But we’re very satisfied with the level of preparation today,” explained Salzburg coach Matthias Jaissle.

Salzburg responds to Bayern leadership

Bayern provided the first highlight on their own campus in front of around 2,000 spectators. Sane was not prevented from completing the shot by Bernardo and deliberately hit the cross corner from inside the penalty area. Salzburg goalie Philipp Köhn prevented a double strike from a Kimmich shot (12′).

But Salzburg responded quickly. An ideal pass from Luka Sucic into Koita’s run resulted in the attacker from Mali completing the shot with his left hand against Sven Ulreich (16′). Otherwise, the hosts were closer to the second goal before the break, Jamal Musiala (31st) and Sane (38th) lacked the necessary efficiency in the end.

Six goals after the break

At the break, Salzburg coach Matthias Jaissle replaced all the players except for Köhn, and that had a positive effect on the visitors’ game. After a corner, Samson Baidoo headed. Ulreich then parried an Adamu volley, but was then powerless against Konate’s sweep. Immediately afterwards (52nd), Okafor missed the chance to make it 3-1, but scored it two minutes later with a wonderful shot into the cross corner from the edge of the penalty area.

Bayern then clearly dominated the action. Kimmich missed the ball from the best position (55′). The DFB team player was the only player who stayed on the field in a mass substitution in the 63rd minute. From that point on, Marcel Sabitzer, who had recently been weakened by the flu, and Paul Wanner, who had only been 17 since December 23, also played.

After a shot into the crossbar (65th), it was Ibrahimovic who hit the corner flat. Two minutes later, Coman shot in from 13 meters after a Tel cross. As if that wasn’t enough, shortly after a Coman shot from long range at the crossbar, Tel provided the supposed winning goal with a shot into the near corner. But that didn’t work out, because Okafor took a wide pass and with the second touch of the ball Bayern’s goalie didn’t give a chance and Köhn was able to parry brilliantly again in the 93rd minute.
