The goalie for FC Bayern, Ulreich (#26) was defeated as his opponent had scored on their team and he was unable to save the shot from entering the goal. However, twelve minutes later in the 67’ minute FC Bayern Munich tied the score 1 to 1. Jamal Musiala received an assist from Noussair Mazraoui. Musiala right footed the shot from the center of the box and perfectly aimed into the bottom right corner.
