Bundesliga: Union Berlin end Bayern Munich winning streak

Bayern Munich were far from their best as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Union Berlin at the Allianz Arena on Saturday.

Jamal Musiala lit up a drab game midway through the second half to seemingly edge Bayern closer to their 31st Bundesliga title, but substitute Marcus Ingvartsen squeezed an equaliser home four minutes from time.

The hosts went in front Thomas Muller dispossessed defender Marvin Friedrich in the box and the Chelsea youth product Musiala twisted to find room between two defenders on the six-yard box before slotting home.

They seemed to be cruising to victory before Robert Andrich raced to the by-line and pulled back for Ingvartsen to turn home.

There was very little inspiration in the Bayern side but most of the good moments in attack came via the 18-year-old winger.

Musiala, who played his youth football at Chelsea before moving to Bayern at 16, has been a regular presence off the bench but the glut of injuries and prospect of a big game on Tuesday enabled him to get a starting berth and he took full advantage.

Even without the goal he showed enough to get the star player award in a low-grade contest, but the silky way he created space for himself did provide the lone elite moment of the match.
