Bayern Munich 2-2 Stuttgart: Player ratings as hosts slump to third straight draw

Bayern Munich drew their third consecutive Bundesliga game as a 92nd-minute penalty from Serhou Guirassy saw Stuttgart earn a 2-2 draw on Saturday.

Mathys Tel opened the scoring for Bayern but saw his effort cancelled out early in the second half, although Jamal Musiala restored the advantage for Julian Nagelsmann’s side with a fine strike from inside the box.

But Guirassy, who had seen two goals struck off, netted a well-deserved equaliser deep in stoppage time to secure a point.

Predictably, Bayern dominated possession early on but chances on goal were few and far between, with the hosts’ first opportunity coming 18 minutes in as Joshua Kimmich’s free-kick whistled narrowly over the bar.

On the half-hour mark, an excellent double save from Florian Muller was needed as Tel and Serge Gnabry were both denied from close range amid some penalty-box pinball.

The pace stepped up at this point and some nice play on the edge of the Stuttgart box handed a nice chance to Gnabry, who bent his effort over the bar.

After 36 minutes, Tel became Bayern’s youngest goalscorer ever when he drilled home a cut-back from Alphonso Davies, with a bit of help from a deflection.

The second half nearly got off to a rough start for Bayern as Guirassy tapped home from close range, but VAR saved the day after spotting the smallest of shirt pulls on Joshua Kimmich in the build-up.

The warning signs were there and Stuttgart bagged a deserved equaliser 57 minutes in as Chris Fuhrich found some space in the box and fired home.

Parity didn’t last long though as Musiala went straight down the other end and drilled into the bottom corner to restore Bayern’s lead.

Stuttgart chose to remain positive and nearly got their reward with 16 minutes to go when Guirassy unleashed a glorious strike from range that crashed back off the post.

Guirassy saw another effort chalked off soon after following another foul on Kimmich which was far more convincing than the first VAR intervention.

As the clock ticked on, it was Stuttgart who looked more likely to score and they landed a 91st-minute penalty as Guirassy was caught by Matthijs de Ligt in the penalty box. The summer signing stepped up and thundered past Neuer to tie things up.
