Sadio Mane misses the open goalkeeper in Bayern Munich’s derby draw with Borussia Dortmund as BVB go 2-0 up to save the final point


Bayern Munich winger Sadio Mane found his head in his hands after missing an open goal in their 2-2 draw with Borussia Dortmund on Saturday.

With the Bundesliga champions leading 1-0 heading into the second half at Signal Iduna Park, the 30-year-old had the perfect chance to double the visitors’ lead.

Mane somehow got out of the way despite BVB shooting Alexander Meyer not in goal

Leon Goretzka, who put Julian Nagelsmann’s side ahead in the 33rd minute, latched onto a through ball from Joshua Kimmich as BVB keeper Alexander Meyer ran away.

But the goalkeeper failed to claim the slicked pass as Goretzka beat him to the ball where he cleverly dunked the ball towards a waiting Mane ten yards from goal.

However, the former Liverpool winger made a mistake in the 49th minute as he cleared him away from the post.

The Senegal star was shocked after failing to hit the target without any Dortmund players in his way.

And that proved costly as Dortmund came from two goals down to score a point in the death.

It looked like Leroy Sane had spared Mane blushes when he put Bayern 2-0 down in the good four minutes later.


Much like Goretzka’s opener, Sane aimed from long range as his shot hit the bottom left corner.

The former Manchester City man is having a fantastic season so far after registering nine goals and three assists in 14 appearances.

He is Bayern’s top scorer this campaign, with the 26-year-old enjoying arguably his best football since returning to Germany in 2020.

Dortmund then pulled a goal back in the 74th minute through teenage starlet Youssoufa Moukoko.

The 17-year-old smashed the ball past Manuel Neuer’s outstretched arms with a ferocious shot from the middle of the box.

In doing so, he became the youngest goalscorer in the history of a Bundesliga game between the two teams.

Dortmund pressed for a late equalizer and they got their reward in the 95th minute after Anthony Modeste headed home from six yards out.

The former Blackburn striker found himself on the end of Nico Schlotterbeck’s whipping cross in what turned out to be the game’s final kick.

A victory for Bayern would have taken them back to the top of the table ahead of Union Berlin, but they remain in second place.

As for Dortmund, they are fourth – level on points with Bayern but trailing on goal difference.
