The first chance for the European champions came in the ninth minute through Pavard who crossed the ball inside the box to Gnabry whose header went well over the bar.

In the 14th minute Thomas Muller had a big opportunity to open the scoring when he was unmarked but his close range header was straight at El-Shennawy.

After few attempts, Lewandowski managed to put Bayern ahead in the result after a low cross from Coman that was uncleared from Al Ahly defense to reach Gnabry who squared it to Lewandowski to score from five yards.
