However, the Bavarians took it personally and ensured the fact that they are coming back with a bang as they laid waste to an undercooked Salzburg.
Bayern Munich was straight down to business in the opening minutes itself as Kohn denied the invasive Bavarians with a fine save off Lewandowski’s stinging drive. Much to the surprise of the world, Salzburg produced two chances in the next minute, the first coming from Capaldo whose low effort was repelled by Coman while the resultant corner was dragged wide by Kristensen.
