Bayern Munich manager Hansi Flick said he is satisfied with the result of the game against Arminia Bielefeld and praised his side for the “sensational” mentality they showed after going 2-0 down.
Bayern Munich and Arminia Bielefeld played out a 3-3 draw in the Bundesliga here on Tuesday.
“Bielefeld showed that they can play football. I liked that. We had to replace some players, but the mentality in the second half was sensational. It’s important to have the belief that you can still turn the game around even when you’re 2-0 down. To come back like this after the long trip and lots of games, I see it as very positive. The bottom line is that we must and can be satisfied with a point,” the club’s official website quoted Flick as saying.
The 16th-placed club, Arminia, dominated the early proceedings of the match and took a lead in just the ninth minute of the game. Michel Vlap scored the opening goal to put his side ahead against the table-toppers Bayern Munich.
Continuing their sublime form, Arminia took a two-goal lead through Amos Pieper, who netted a goal in the 37th minute. At the half-time break, the scoreline read 2-0 in Arminia’s favour. Bayern Munich opened their account soon after the beginning of the second half through Robert Lewandowski.
However, Arminia managed to restore their two-goal lead with the help Christian Gebauer’s strike which came a minute after Lewandowski’s goal. Bayern Munich hit the ground running from there on and scored twice to rescue a point from the game. Corentin Tolisso and Alphonso Davies had scored one goal each to seal the final scoreline.
With this draw, Bayern Munich now have 49 points and remain at the top of the Bundesliga table.
