Mathys Tel after his goal


FC Bayern Munich also won the second match of the Champions League group stage. After the 4-3 win against Manchester United, the Munich team won 2-1 (0-0) in Copenhagen on Tuesday evening. The Bavarians showed a weak performance for a long time. Copenhagen even took the lead through Lukas Lerager (56th minute). Then Jamal Musiala scored with a one-on-one effort to make it 1-1 (67') before substitute Mathys Tel carried to victory (83').

Bayern coach Thomas Tuchel called Konrad Laimer into the back six for Leon Goretzka, who has been weak lately, while Noussair Mazraoui defended at the back on the right. However, this change was not really good for the Munich team's game. Bayern had more possession, but looked very sedate in the first half. Copenhagen defended passionately and kept the German champions away from their own goal as much as possible. A deflected shot by Musiala landed next to the goal (9th), Joshua Kimmich shot just over from around 20 meters (29th). The Bavarians did not succeed in doing more.

Copenhagen also held back in attack, Mohamed Elyounoussi headed Sven Ulreich (27th), Viktor Claesson shot just past from offside (28th).

Bavaria can't think of anything for a long time

At the beginning of the second half, the Bavarians then set off fireworks, but only in the stands, where the fans who had travelled with them ignited all kinds of pyrotechnics. On the pitch, there was little going on against a compact Copenhagen – before the Danes even took the lead. Copenhagen quickly played forward. Kim Minjae was able to block a shot, but the rebound landed at the feet of Lerager, who scored from around 13 meters to make it 1-0 (55th).

Even after that, there was little going on at Bayern for a long time – before Musiala once again showed all his class. First, Laimer fouled the ball that came from the opponent to Mazraoui. He continued to play to Musiala, who moved towards the penalty area, could not be separated from the ball and scored from just outside the penalty area into the bottom right corner (67th).

However, the equaliser did not give Bayern's game any security at first, Elyounoussi had a great chance for Copenhagen to take the lead again, but shot past unchallenged on the left from around ten metres (74th).

After that, Tuchel moved and brought in Leon Goretzka, Thomas Müller and Tel. A measure that brought success. After a steep pass, Müller went towards the Copenhagen goal, kept his cool under pressure and laid off to Tel, who got to the ball half-left in the penalty area and scored with a powerful shot to make it 2-1 (83rd). The in-form Tel had already scored against Manchester after coming on as a substitute and is increasingly pushing for a place in the starting eleven.
