Champions League: Bayern fighting for victory at Lok Moscow

Champions League

Salzburg FC opponents Bayern Munich celebrated a hard-fought 2-1 (1-0) victory at Lokomotiv Moscow on Tuesday and led Group A after the second day of play without losing points. Joshua Kimmich scored the German champions’ winning goal with a challenging volley in the 79th minute of the game.

Leron Goretzka was CL’s defending champion in the 13th minute. But the hosts, highly supported by 7,000 spectators at NZD Arena, rewarded their opposition and a high level of running and fighting effort with Anton Mirantschuk’s (70th) equalization goal.

A week before the duel with Salzburg, Bayern presented themselves strongly on the offensive, but without emphasis – and defensively. The opening minutes already provided a great opportunity for the hosts through Fyodor Smolow, who nevertheless went into the hands of Manuel Neuer (3rd). Bayern made it 1-0. Benjamin Pavard passed a long volley of Constantin Tolisso volley to the top of Goretzka, who defeated Guilherme at Lok gate by a short distance (13th).

Coman awards a preliminary decision

After surrendering the goal, the reckless submission of the Muscovites was over. A close 1-0 copy ended with a pole shot by Kingsley Coman (25th). The Bavarians repeatedly tore the locomotive defense with this pattern, but they lost the easy preliminary decision.

In the 70th minute, the Russians, who completed a counterattack against the Brazilian Ze Luis and Mirantschuk, shouted to the penalty area. Even ÖFB star David Alaba, who usually played through in central defense, was definitely not getting his legs between them.

There was a penalty decision after a foul on Robert Lewandowski had previously been withdrawn by the VAR due to a mismatch position. Bayern even flew after that, but then Kimmich proved his worth once again with an exact volley from the edge of the penalty area.

Inter yet only an equal game

On the other hand, Inter Milan failed to reach a draw with a 0-0 win over Shakhtar Donetsk as favorites in the second game. The Italians were the more dangerous team in Kiev, Donetsk goalkeeper Anatolij Trubin kept his team in the match against Romelu Lukaku (42nd / batten free-kick) and Co.

Inter had already conceded points in Group B in the 2-2 win against Mönchengladbach, Schachtar had held Real poor in the 3-2 away win in Madrid.
