Mats Hummels scored against his old team to give his older and current team Bayern Munich the 2-1 lead heading into halftime.

Javi Martinez played a long ball out of the back into the path of Franck Ribery. The winger dribbled into the penalty area, before passing the ball toward the center of the box to Hummels.

The centerback let the ball go across his body and finished with a marvelous shot into the lower left hand corner of the goal out of the reach of Roman Bürki. That is a really nice finish!

Hummels’ goal finally put Bayern on top during a match in which the Bavarians were very clearly on the front foot throughout the majority of the first half.
