Having put seven past Werder Bremen, Koln continued from where they left off in their previous league outing when they drew first blood after just four minutes.

Bayern's lion's share of the possession frustratingly did not translate into goals, however, a screamer from Kimmich in the dying embers of the game ensured the Bavarians maintained their unbeaten home record this term.

Kimmich saves Bayern

A 90th-minute equaliser from Bayern Munich midfielder Joshua Kimmich saved his side from a second loss of the season, as they drew 1-1 at home against a dogged Cologne on Tuesday.

Cologne, who put seven goals past Bremen on Saturday, picked up where they left off, pressuring Bayern and winning a corner after just three minutes.

Cologne defender Julian Chabot kept the ball in the air from the corner, superbly finding an unmarked Ellyes Skhiri at the far post for the Tunisian international to tap in from close range.
