Michael Oliver waved away the requests.
Unavoidably, Bayern worked on after the break. They could scarcely admission much more terrible.

Phillipp Kohn denied Kingsley Coman with his fingertips before pretty much keeping Leroy Sane under control.
Subsequent to sticking on, Salzburg plunged into their energy holds and nearly scratched a second on the counter-assault. Ulreich made a fine save to deny the livewire Adeyemi and Pavard made a far and away superior one to carry Adamu’s bounce back behind.
Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, the zinger turned Champions League expert was gathered and nearly looked a header into the base corner. All things considered, it was passed on to Bayern’s match-victor from the 2020 last Coman, Bayern’s best player on the evening, to drive the leveler.
