The joy of the home fans did not last long. Just 8 minutes after opening the score, Bayern were equalized by Nicolas Hofler’s long shot. For the rest of the game, Bayern kept pressing and creating many chances. However, the defending Bundesliga champion had problems in the final processing beats. The ball from the feet of the red shirt players all went right into the position of goalkeeper Mark Flekken.
