Bayern Munich 1-1 Eintracht Frankfurt: Player Rating as Nagelsmann’s side held again as Bundesliga lead cut to one point


Randal Kolo Muani struck in the second half to earn Eintracht Frankfurt a 1-1 draw at Bayern Munich in Saturday’s Bundesliga clash.

Bayern Munich were held to a third successive 1-1 Bundesliga draw after Randal Kolo Muani struck to earn Eintracht Frankfurt a point at Allianz Arena.

Julian Nagelsmann’s side drew with RB Leipzig and Cologne in their first two games after the mid-season break, but Leroy Sane’s 34th-minute strike helped them to victory on Saturday.

That was until Kolo Muani fired home just over 20 minutes from time to deny the reigning champions, whose lead at the top was now down to just a point.

Union Berlin’s win over city rivals Hertha Berlin earlier in the day came on Bayern’s heels, while Leipzig and Freiburg are two and three points back respectively.

Kevin Trapp made a double save to deny Joshua Kimmich and then Thomas Muller, but the latter pulled the ball back for Sane to sweep the opener three minutes later.

Bayern defender Dayot Upamecano headed wide from close range and Trapp kept out Sane’s next effort as the visitors pressed for a while.

But unlike on the opening day of the season, when they led by five goals at half-time in a 6-1 win over Eintracht, Bayern lacked a finish.

This proved costly as Eintracht’s first attempt on goal saw Kolo Muani fire past Yann Sommer after driving past Upamecano.

Bayern brought on Serge Gnabry – among the substitutes after he was criticized for attending Paris Fashion Week – but Eintracht looked likely to find a late winner late on as Rafael Santos Borre’s deflected effort flew just wide after Evan Ndicky’s close-range effort was blocked.
