Kevin Trapp starred in goal before a late Filip Kostic strike earned Eintracht Frankfurt a shock 2-1 win at Bayern Munich on Sunday.
Bayern Munich’s unbeaten start to Julian Nagelsmann’s tenure came to an end on Sunday with a shock 2-1 loss to Eintracht Frankfurt.
The shock victory also snapped the hosts’ nine-game winning run in all competitions.
Kostic picked up the ball on the edge of the box, charged forward and beat keeper Manuel Neuer with a powerful low drive in the 83rd minute to seal Eintracht’s first win of the season.
It was Bayern’s first defeat at the Allianz Arena in the Bundesliga since they were beaten 2-1 by Bayer Leverkusen on November 30 2019.
The home side took the lead when Leon Goretzka benefited from a Martin Hinteregger mistake to score in the 29th minute.
The Austrian defender quickly made amends by powering a header into the net for the equaliser 3 minutes later.
Both teams each had a chance to take the lead before the break with Eintracht’s Almamy Toure forcing a superb save from Neuer in the 43rd minute and Bayern’s Serge Gnabry hitting the post from close range a minute later.
Eintracht keeper Kevin Trapp was kept busy in the second half, repeatedly denying Gnabry, Leroy Sane and Robert Lewandowski as the hosts pushed forward in search of the winner.
