Until the 90th minute, the Austrians in the domestic stadium led 1-0, marriage Kingsley Coman but still managed the deserved equalizer. So the team of Matthias Jaissle ultimately had to be satisfied with a 1: 1, which makes all the chances on the ascent in the quarterfinals, but at the same time caused a bitter aftertaste.

That Bavaria could no longer be made from the great dominance in halftime, was also at Salzburg goalkeeper Philipp Köhn. The occasional closing man of the Austrian spreadsheet in the autumn and at the age of Coman (74th) and Sané (76th) retained twice, at the goal, he had finally powerless. “I will not forget this evening. We can live very well with the result. In the second leg everything is open,” says Köhn.
Last but not least due to the repealed awayator rule, the starting position for Salzburg is quite solid, on the 8th of March it comes to the reunion of the two teams. Although Jaissle know the whole story “know”, he does not want to hide with Salzburg in the Allianz Arena: “We drive with a wide chest and self-confidence to Munich.”
