Bayern survive Leipzig comeback to win 5-3 -They took control of the game by scoring three times before halftime, with Jamal Musiala, Mane, and Benjamin Pavard all contributing to the scoring.

“We did a fairly good job of it in the first half of the game. “Leeds played a deep defense, which gave us a lot of time to build things up,” stated Bayern’s head coach, Julian Nagelsmann. “Each of us was only given one shot. However, after around an hour into the second half, there was no longer any tightness.

“In the end, we had to take into account the reality that we would be running a little low on energy because Leipzig had been in preparation for a longer period of time. We are ecstatic to have successfully defended our title.”

The first goal was scored by Musiala in the 14th minute, and the second was scored by Senegal international Mane in the 31st minute after Serge Gnabry broke through the Leipzig defense and provided an excellent assist. Mane had recently joined Leipzig from Liverpool. Musiala scored the first goal with a rifle shot.

When Musiala threaded his way into the box in the final seconds of the first half and set up Benjamin Pavard to score, it appeared as though Leipzig’s comeback attempt had been completely derailed.

In the first half, Leipzig had only one shot on goal, which indicates that Bayern’s backline was just as effective as it was in the first period.

Everything changed after the halftime, starting with the home team’s substitute Andre Silva’s powerful header that hit the post in the 56th minute, followed by Marcel Halstenberg’s superior header three minutes later that halved the margin in half.

After goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi blocked Thomas Muller’s effort, Bayern’s Serge Gnabry scored on the rebound to momentarily restore his team’s three-goal lead. Gnabry’s goal came after Peter Gulacsi had pushed away Muller’s shot.

In the 77th minute, Christopher Nkunku scored on a penalty kick to make the score 4-2 before his Leipzig teammate Dani Olmo responded with a powerful shot to set up a tense finish to an intriguing matchup.

However, Bayern was awarded their first title of the season thanks to a goal scored by a late substitution named Leroy Sane. Sane scored on a breakaway with the game’s final kick of the ball.

The first game of the Bundesliga season will be played on August 5.
