Joshua Kimmich’s 90th-minute wonder goal denied FC Cologne their first victory at the Allianz Arena since 2009, as Bayern Munich maintained their unbeaten record at home this season in dramatic fashion at the death.
Having netted seven past Werder Bremen in the weekend’s fixtures, Cologne picked up exactly where they left off at the Allianz Arena, taking the lead after just three minutes.
Fresh off the back of a Man of the Match performance, Ellyes Skhiri scored his third goal in two matches with a delightful back-post volley, stunning the record champions into early submission.
The hosts would come close to levelling before the break, namely through Serge Gnabry, whose effort from close range forced Cologne goalkeeper Marvin Schwäbe into a save.
Following his side’s 1-1 draw with title challengers RB Leipzig, Bayern manager Julian Nagelsmann labelled his side’s performance as “average”, but somehow the 32-time Bundesliga champions had managed to regress even further.
Unhappy with the efforts of his players, Nagelsmann turned to substitute Thomas Müller, with the ex-German international coming closest to an equaliser.
It’s why when the eventual equaliser arrived it came as no surprise, with Kimmich rifling home a long-range effort from 20-yards out to kill Cologne’s dreams of a famous victory.
