October 04, (THEWILL) – Bayern Munich came from behind to earn a 2-1 victory against Copenhagen in the UEFA Champions League at Parken Stadium on Tuesday night.
The Danish side stunned the visitors by taking a shock lead 10 minutes into the second half through Lukas Lerager’s strike from inside the box. However, Bayern swiftly responded just over 10 minutes later when Jamal Musiala brilliantly equalised with a curling effort from the edge of the area.
The decisive moment came in the 83rd minute when substitute Mathys Tel smashed home from close range to complete the comeback for the German giants. The goal was created by some fantastic play from Thomas Muller, who opened up the space for the 18-year-old French striker to net the winner.
Despite Copenhagen having the better of the early chances, with efforts from Mohamed Elyounoussi and Viktor Claesson, Bayern controlled most of the possession in the first half. However, they were frustrated by the stubborn home defence and Kamil Grabara in goal, registering just one shot on target before the break through Leroy Sane.
The victory maintains Bayern’s 100% start in Group A after they dispatched Manchester United 4-3 in their opening match. Meanwhile, Copenhagen will be disappointed not to get something from the game after heroically leading until the final 10 minutes.
