Bay Munich 2 – 2 Stuttgart


Bayern Munich conceded the equalizer in stoppage time through VfB Stuttgart striker Serhou Guirassy from the penalty spot for a 2-2 draw on Saturday, the Bundesliga champions’ third consecutive draw.

It started well for Bayern, who face Barcelona in the Champions League group stage next week, with striker Mathys Tel scoring his opener in the 36th minute.

French youth international Tel, who at the age of 17 years and 136 days became the youngest player to start a league game for Bayern, had already scored in the first round of the German Cup.

He secured his first league goal by drilling a low drive from an Alphonso Davies cut.

Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann has turned strongly since the team’s 2-0 midweek Champions League victory at Inter, and his side slowed their pace in the second half, giving Stuttgart more space to move forward.

They were rewarded when Chris Fuehrich scored the equalizer from close range in the 57th, but three minutes later Bayern were back in front with another teenager.

Jamal Musiala, Bayern’s 19-year-old former youngest league goalscorer, shook off his marker with a quick change of direction and fired a superb ball into the net.

The visitors’ biggest chance of leveling came in the 74th when Guirassy’s shot from 18 yards bounced off the crossbar with goalkeeper Manuel Neuer beaten.

But they got a time out penalty following a foul by Matthijs de Ligt on Guirassy.

The Guinea international kept his cool to beat Neuer and score a point for the visitors. Bayern lead the table on goal difference with 12 points, ahead of the weekend’s other fixtures.

RB Leipzig’s Willi Orban scores against Dortmund

Somewhere else, RB Leipzig dazed Borussia Dortmund 3-0 on Saturday with goals from Willi Orban, Dominik Szoboszlai and Amadou Haidara for a morale-boosting victory and a winning debut for new coach Marco Rose.

Rose replaced Domenico Tedesco earlier this week after a poor start to the league season and a 4-1 home loss to Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League this week.

The hosts, who travel to Real Madrid in the Champions League next week, didn’t have to wait long for a goal with Orban’s header from the corner in the sixth minute.

Leipzig should have scored again through Timo Werner and Szoboszlai before the Hungarian made amends, scoring his second goal with a 25-yard missile into the top corner just at half-time.

There were far too few visitors with Dortmund, who face Manchester City in the Champions League next week, not managing a single shot on target the entire game.

Instead, it was Leipzig who scored again through Amadou Haidara in the 84th after a more sloppy defense from Dortmund.

In Serie A earlier on Saturday, a late strike from Giacomo Raspadori was enough to secure a 1-0 home win for Naples more Spezia.
