Alcantara Steals Victory

A 94th minute goal from Thiago Alcantara saw Bayern Munich come from a goal behind to beat VfB Stuttgart 2-1 in a German Bundesliga match at the Mercedes-Benz-Arena on Wednesday night.

The opening 45 minutes certainly saw Bayern controlling the possession stakes, but for all their dominance they couldn’t break down a resilient Stuttgart defence.

Instead, it was at the other end of the park where we saw the opening goal when Vedad Ibisevic fired Stuttgart in front in the 29th minute.

Timo Werner played Ibisevic through on goal and he made no mistake as he slotted the ball past Manuel Neur, 1-0.

Munich, despite controlling the flow of play created very little in front of goal in the opening half. Their first decent effort only came five minutes before the break when Alcantara fired a long range effort goalwards, but he saw his powerful shot well-stopped by Sven Ulreich.

The half ended 1-0 in favour of the home side.

Ibisevic almost snuck in a second goal shortly after the break when Dante failed to deal with a bouncing ball into the box, allowing the Stuttgart striker to sneak in front of him, but he poked the ball wide from close range.

Thereafter, however, Munich took control of the match and were unlucky not to score in the 70th minute when Alcantara found himself with just the keeper to beat, but Ulreich produced a great one-on-one save.

Six minutes later, though, and Munich did find the equaliser as Claudio Pizarro headed home a free-kick cross from Alcantara, 1-1.

Munich continued to push for the winner after drawing level, but it did not look to be their night.

That was until the 94th minute when Alcantara stole the victory for Munich when his right footed shot from the centre of the box found the bottom corner of the net, 2-1.
