The current leaders of the German Bundesliga, Bayern Munich qualified to the quarter-finals of the German Cup in an exciting game. With the advantage of playing at home, at the Allianz Arena, Hans-Dieter Flick’s men had a hard time in the final minutes, but overcame Hoffenheim 4-3, with a comeback in the early minutes.
It was the visitors who opened the scoring after seven minutes of the game. Ihlas Bebou received in the box and sent a low shot. Jerome Boateng tried to clear the ball and ended up sending it into his own goal.
At the 13th minute, the draw came in the same way. Alphonso Davies went down the left-wing and crossed for Thomas Muller. Benjamin Hubner was the one trying the clear and sending it to his own goal.
The comeback came 8 minutes later when David Alaba sent a long ball into the box and Muller was there to give a subtle touch to send it past goalkeeper Philipp Pentke.
Bayern Munich still scored the third goal before the half-time. At the 36th, Robert Lewandowski took advantage of a mistake from Pentke to head the ball into the empty net. 3-1 for the Bavarians.
In the second half, Lewa showed up again to score the fourth for Bayern, already at the 80th minute, with a header after a corner from Joshua Kimmich.
The game was basically sealed, or at least that was what everyone thought. Hoffenheim surprised and started high-pressing and ended up scoring twice with Munas Davvur.
At the 82nd, the number 10 fired his effort into the bottom left corner, giving no chances to goalkeeper Manuel Neuer. 10 minutes later, he was faster than Bayern’s defense to put the ball inside the net once again.
Hoffenheim still had a corner in the last minute and sent even the keeper to the box, and after a lot of trouble, the Bavarian’s defense was able to clear the ball and guarantee the victory by 4-3.
With that, they qualify for the next round and wait for the draw to get to know their next opponents. Before that, both teams focus on the Bundesliga. Bayern Munich will welcome RB Leipzig on Sunday, trying to increase their lead. Hoffenheim will travel to face Freiburg, on Saturday.
