In the six-goal thriller, the lead changed hands multiple times, but Bayern Munich and RB Leipzig could not be separated by full-time.
RB Leipzig took the lead in the 19th minute through Christopher Nkunku. Bayern Munich would score twice in the space of five minutes, with Jamal Musiala and Thomas Muller getting on the scoreboard. Justin Kluivert would return parity for the visitors two minutes later.
In the second half, Leipzig again got the lead, this time through Emil Forsberg. Die Roten Bullen were on-course for a famous victory but were denied by Muller, who scored his second of the night.
Hansi Flick was pleased with the night’s topsy turvy events and relieved not to lose the ‘wild game.’ The 55-year-old admitted FC Hollywood conceded soft goals and attributed it to their hectic workload.
“We have to be satisfied on the one hand. It was important that we didn’t lose the game. It was a wild game,” the Bayern Munich coach commented.
“We got a few easy goals. That may have something to do with that we have to change more often. But we also scored three goals and came back twice. The workload we’ve had for almost a year is simply amazing.”
Flick will now turn his attention to the UEFA Champions League. Bayern Munich welcome Lokomotiv Moscow for their final group game. They will then look at a hectic eight days of Bundesliga action. Bayern will take on the challenge of Union Berlin, VfL Wolfsburg, and Bayer Leverkusen before going into winter break.
