Dream goal from Tel! Bayern equalise before half-time in Freiburg

Mathys Tel

FC Bayern fell behind against SC Freiburg and struggled for a long time. Then Mathys Tel scored a remarkable equaliser.

The score is 1-1 at half-time between SC Freiburg and FC Bayern on matchday 24 of the Bundesliga.

Christian Günter gave Freiburg the lead in the 12th minute. Shortly before that, Bayern keeper Manuel Neuer made a great save from a chance for the home side: after a cross from Vincenzo Grifo, Roland Sallai headed dangerously towards goal, but Neuer made a strong save. However, the Bayern defence then failed to clear the ball properly and Günter hammered the ball into the bottom right-hand corner from around 18 metres without Neuer being able to keep it out.

Four minutes later, Günter had a great chance to increase the SCF’s lead. The Freiburg captain ran alone towards Neuer, but the FCB goalkeeper made a strong save with his feet.

Tel with a beautiful flick

Freiburg’s next chance came in the 22nd minute: Grifo – pursued by Joshua Kimmich – dribbled against Eric Dier and Minjae Kim and even had a shot, but placed it just to the right of the Munich goal.

Coach Thomas Tuchel’s team struggled for a long time against Freiburg and failed to create any scoring chances – until Mathys Tel equalised in the 35th minute!

A Raphael Guerreiro corner from the right was cleared out of the Freiburg penalty area. Tel went after it, grabbed the ball and flicked it precisely into the far corner from the edge of the penalty area. A real dream goal from the young Frenchman, who was in the starting eleven for the first time this Bundesliga season.

Shortly before the half-time whistle, Jamal Musiala even had the chance to put Bayern ahead: The youngster could only tip the ball into the arms of Freiburg keeper Noah Atubolu from around six metres out.
