Salzburg 1-1 Bayern Munich : Coman scores late to give Nagelsmann’s side a 1-1 draw in the first leg.

Bayern Munich drew 1-1 in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 encounter against Salzburg thanks to a 90th-minute equalizer by Kingsley Coman.

After a sensational 4-2 Bundesliga defeat to Bochum over the weekend, Julian Nagelsmann’s side got a barrage of criticism, and they were on the verge of another upset in Austria on Wednesday.

Junior Adamu appeared to have scored the game-winning goal after 21 minutes in the hosts’ first ever game in the Champions League knockout stages.

However, Salzburg were denied a memorable victory late on as Coman scored at the back post to put Bayern in command ahead of the return leg next month.

After an effective counter-attacking move, Adamu, who had replaced the injured Noah Okafor earlier in the game, finished past Sven Ulreich from just inside the penalty area.

Soon after, Ulreich denied Brenden Aaronson, while Leroy Sane blazed wide from a promising position on the other end.

As Bayern failed to draw level before the break, Serge Gnabry had two attempts blocked and Coman headed straight at Philipp Kohn.

Bayern made little progress after the break, with their first major efforts coming shortly after the 70th minute, when Kohn denied Coman and Sane in quick succession.

However, after Ulreich had denied Karim Adeyemi, Benjamin Pavard wonderfully stopped Adamu’s goalbound attempt, setting the scenario for Coman to break Salzburg hearts by blasting past Kohn.
