Bayern Munich left it late to rescue a precious point at home to FC Koln on Tuesday.

Going into the final minute of normal time at the iconic Allianz Arena, the current Bundesliga champions trailed 1-0.

Ellyes Skhiri put Koln ahead in just the fourth minute of play, the Tunisian midfielder converting from close-range after some suspect Bayern defending.

But from that moment on, it was essentially domination from the hosts.

Bayern had a whopping 78% possession, however, it still took them until the 90th minute to finally breach Koln’s stubborn defence.

Joshua Kimmich was the man who grabbed the equaliser – and it was an absolute stunner from the midfield maestro.

The German took aim from all of 35 yards out, with his missile of a shot cannoning off the crossbar and then nestling comfortably in the back of the net.

Poor ol’ Marvin Schwabe in the Koln goal didn’t stand a chance. He could have had back-up Timo Horn alongside him and it still wouldn’t have made a difference to the outcome.

After scoring a strong contender for Bundesliga Goal of the Season, Kimmich appeared to perform Marcus Rashford‘s celebration – which is slowly taking over football.

Check out the incredible strike, and resulting Manchester United-themed celebration, from one of the very best in the business here…

Stop that, Joshua! It surely cannot be physically possible to hit a football sweeter than that, right?

We won’t see many better goals scored anywhere in Europe – or indeed the world as a whole – this season, of that you can be certain.

So, Julian Nagelsmann’s men are still in pole-position to retain their domestic crown, although their lead at the summit was cut from six points to four on Tuesday.

Second-placed RB Leipzig thrashed FC Schalke 6-1 away from home, former Chelsea striker Timo Werner among the scorers on the night.

Eintracht Frankfurt can cut their gap to Bayern to just three points if they defeat Freiburg on Wednesday evening.

After Freiburg’s 6-0 loss to Wolfsburg last Saturday, you fancy Frankfurt to emerge victorious and increase the pressure on the Bavarians…
