Holders Bayern Munich dumped out of German Cup
In a significant upset, defending champions Bayern Munich were knocked out of Germany’s top cup competitors by a second-tier side on Wednesday.
Holstein Kiel won on charges after the DFB-Pokal video game at the Holstein-Stadion ended 2-2.
Serge Gnabry netted the opener for Munich in the 14th minute, while Fin Bartels leveled the scores on the 37th-minute mark.
Leroy Sane brought back Munich’s advantage simply minutes after the break and the holders looked set for a win up until the passing away minutes of the match.
Kiel defender Hauke Wahl headed in a remarkable stoppage-time equalizer to keep the video game alive.
Neither side was able to score in extra time and Kiel won the penalty shootout 6-5 to sign up a historical triumph that sent them through to the third round of the German Cup.
