Bayern Munich perhaps could have had more and should have had more. Kevin Trapp, as opposition keepers tend to when they play Bayern, had a wonderful game and perhaps will go down as man of the match. Manuel Neuer was no slouch either, helping in build up play, coming to almost the halfway line to stop Frankfurt’s breakaways.
Bayern had more shots (by far) and more possession; Leroy Sané had a good game and put in plenty of effort but could not find the back of the net. Robert Lewandowski was very quiet, marked out of the game. His opposite number in Frankfurt, Rafael Santos Borré was isolated and basically also marked out of the game.
Bayern’s first goal came courtesy of an error by Marin Hinteregger; his pass would deflect off a Bayern player and find its way to Leon Goretzka who would score his first Bundesliga goal of the season. Hinteregger himself would equalize from a corner. Very late on in the game, Filip Kostic would score the winner to hand Frankfurt a first league win of the season.
