Koln vs Bayern: Match Report

First half:

Kingsley Coman didn't take long to give his team an important lead in the match. Sane drove forward and dropped a pass off for Sane, who took a step inside and fired with accuracy into the far corner, and Coman didn't make any mistake. Bayern continued to bombard the opposition's defence but didn't find any openings in the first half.

Bayern were not only in the lead in their game but also for the title as Dortmund were already 2 goals behind in their clash against Mainz in the Signal Iduna Park. Köln started to get at the Bayern defence in the 40th minute as Maina swung in a cross. There were shouts for a handball against Gravenberch, but it was not given. Sane doubled the lead in the later stages of the first half but it chalked off for a concussion during the build-up. The First Half ended with a 1-0 scoreline while Dortmund were still behind in their game.

Second half:

Köln started with great intensity right after the beginning of the second half. Köln gave as good as they get. A goal for them would send Dortmund back to the title top of the table as they were still behind in their respective match. Sommer pulled off a sensational save to prevent Selke from heading in a Kainz corner. Another corner caused problems for Bayern. It's headed down for Skhiri, but he couldn't direct the ball on target under pressure from a blue shirt.

What a moment for the young Musiala

Another twist in the tale as Ljubicic fired in a penalty after a VAR check confirmed a handball. It felt like a goal for Dortmund as they were losing to Mainz but still could top of the table if Bayern drew their match. After a few minutes, Dortmund equalised and it was not a good sign for Bayern. In the 89th minute, Schwäbe stopped Sane at point-blank range, but Bayern kept the chances alive. Musiala worked his magic on the edge of the box and fired into the bottom corner. Bayern were back in the match as Dortmund were still losing their game. Bayern's game ended with a 2-1 scoreline. Dortmund scored their second goal in the 96th minute but couldn't find the winner. Bayern Munich clinched their 11th consecutive Bundesliga title and 32nd overall.
