Sensation in Kiel: For the first time in 20 years, Bayern Munich were eliminated in the second round of the DFB Cup. The Champions League winner lost to KSV Holstein 5-6 on penalties. After 120 minutes it was 2: 2 (2: 2, 1: 1). Fin Bartels converted the decisive penalty against the big favorite and defending champion, Marc Roca had missed at Bayern. A remarkable free kick by Leroy Sane two minutes after the start of the second half was not enough to win in regular time. Holstein captain Hauke Wahl forced an additional 30 minutes of play with a header (90 + 4).
The guests had to tremble for a long time not only because of the cutting wind in the Holstein Stadium. Serge Gnabry put the Champions League winner in the 14th minute after a mistake by Holstein goalkeeper Ioannis Gelios, but referee Robert Schröder overlooked his offside position. After one of the few counterattacks, Bartels scored for the hosts (37th).
Bayern Munich: top stars on the bench
Bayern coach Hansi Flick left several of his top stars on the bench at the start of the game. And so world footballer Robert Lewandowski, world champion Benjamin Pavard and David Alaba initially only watched the game from the edge of the field. Leon Goretzka stayed in Munich because of a calf injury.
At the latest after the early lead, the German champions had the game under control, but several times missed the opportunity to expand their lead. As announced by Holstein coach Ole Werner, his protégés tried to find gaps in the Munich coverage.
Fin Bartels brings Holstein Kiel into the round of 16
And the Bayern defense was not always stable. Alexander Mühling could have equalized just two minutes after the Sane hit. But in terms of ball technique and speed, FC Bayern was superior in most phases.
Nevertheless, Flick always found reasons to conduct his actors loudly and also to criticize them. Because after just under an hour, the second division third became more courageous and conjured up one and the other unpleasant situation for Bayern.
But it was not until the 74th minute before Flick reacted and replaced the exhausted goalscorer Sane with Lewandowski. Douglas Costa should also provide new momentum. Bayern then dominated the game in the closing stages and barely let the hosts come up with successful combinations. Pavard was also substituted on shortly before the final whistle.
Only with the last move of the regular season did the Kielers reward themselves. A Johannes van den Bergh cross found its way into the goal – from Wahl’s shoulder. Manuel Neuer in goal had no chance.
In extra time, Bayern pressed for victory, Holstein fought back with the last of his strength. Real scoring chances remained in short supply, and Gelios was strong. (sid)
