Bayern knocked out

Bayern Munich was knocked out in the second round of the German Cup for the first time in 20 years after losing a penalty shootout to second-division team Holstein Kiel on Wednesday. Bayern led twice but allowed Kiel to equalize for a second time and make it 2-2 in the 90th minute. After extra time, Fin Bartels converted the winning penalty to give Kiel a 6-5 win in the shootout. “It’s something that will be remembered for years,” Kiel’s 32-year-old coach Ole Werner said. It’s the first time since 2004 that Bayern, a record 20-time Cup winner, lost to a lower-tier team in the competition. And after losing just one game during all of 2020 — winning three titles along the way — Bayern has now lost two of its three matches in 2021. It also lost to Borussia Moenchengladbach in the Bundesliga last Friday.
