- Cologne travelled to the Allianz Arena on Sunday to face Bayern Munich
- Robert Lewandowski and Serge Gnabry put the hosts head early in the first-half
- However, Cologne came roaring back with Anthony Modeste and Mark Uth
- The German champions aren’t at their flying best, but Gnabry fired the winner
A quick-fire comeback from FC Cologne had Julen Nagelsmann sweating in Bayern Munich second game of the season, but Serge Gnabry popped-up to calm his new boss.
Munich were held 1-1 in their opening game of the season by Borussia Monchengladbach, and Nagelsmann needed to open his account with the Bundesliga dominators against last-season’s 16th-placed side.
Robert Lewandowski opened the scoring on 50 minutes before Gnabry pulled Bayern clear, but a shock two-minute comeback brought Koln back via Anthony Modeste and Mark Uth.
Gnabry’s winner was electric, driving into the roof of the net with thunderous power on 71 minutes.
