Bayern Munich 2-2 VfB Stuttgart

The referee blows the whistle to end the match, as Bayern Munich and Stuttgart share the spoils after a 2-2 draw.

The visitors took an unlikely lead early on against the champions after Marmoush pulled the ball back for Tomas on the edge of the box.

Tomas took it the first time and sent a powerful drive into the back of the net. The hosts hit back, though, when Gnabry cut onto his left foot and fired into the back of the net via a Mavropanos deflection.

Bayern Munich then took the lead just before half-time, when Muller brilliantly turned past Ito before poking past Neuer to make it 2-1 at the interval.

Kalajdzic then got his side back on level terms early into the second half when Sosa lofted a cross over to him.

The striker outjumped Kouassi before heading home. Both teams had chances to win the game, but neither could take them and the game finished the level.

Despite Nagelsmann’s side ending the game with ten men when Coman received a late red card for a slap on Mavropanos.

Goals:

Stuttgart, take the lead!!! Tomas is the scorer after Marmoush picked him out on the edge of the box. The Portuguese forward smashed it the first time, sending it flying into the roof of the net past Neuer to make it 1-0.

The hosts are level!!! Gnabry had a sighter a moment ago, and now he has the equaliser. The ball is played out to him on the right by Lewandowski, and he cuts onto his left in the box. He fires at goal, and despite Mavropanos’ attempted block on the line, the ball nestles in the back of the net to make it 1-1.

It’s 2-1 to the hosts!!! It’s an excellent goal, too, as Thomas Muller pokes into the back of the net. The ball was played into him by Upamecano, and a brilliant turn by Thomas Muller creates the space for him to stab into the bottom corner.

It’s 2-2!!! Sosa floats a cross over from the left, and Kalajdzic outjumps Kouassi at the back post. The striker nods goalwards, and Neuer can’t keep it out as Stuttgart level things up.

So, what’s next?

With the draw, Stuttgart picked up what could be a crucial point come the end of the season.

They remain in the relegation play-off spot and will host seventh-placed Cologne on the final day as they look for a miraculous escape.

The title is already secured for the hosts, and they will travel to Wolfsburg in their last game of the season as they look to finish on a high note.
