Bayern Munich held by Salzburg as Liverpool hit Inter

Bayern Munich needed a late Kingsly Coman goal to rescue a  1-1 draw against RB Salburg in the first leg of the last 16 in the UEFA champions league in Austria .

Salzburg, fielding the youngest average starting side in the Champions League since Ajax in 2003, took the lead on 21 minutes through Chukwubuike Adamu’s lovely effort.

Winger Coman sneaked in at the far post in the 90th minute and converted following Thomas Muller’s flick.

The hosts could have nicked a second at 1-0, but Karim Adeyemi’s shot was saved and Adamu’s follow-up was blocked.

The surprise result follows Bayern’s 4-2 defeat in the Bundesliga in the hands of Bochum at the weekend . The Bavarians will however look to get the job done in two weeks time at the Allianz arena.

In Italy , Liverpool took a huge step towards the Champions League quarter-finals after scoring two late goals against Inter Milan in the San Siro.

The Reds looked set for a goalless draw in the first leg in Italy until Brazil forward Roberto Firmino got on the end of Andrew Robertson’s corner to head his side into the lead.

Mohamed Salah added a second with a deflected effort from inside the box which means Jurgen Klopp’s side take a sizeable advantage into the second leg at Anfield on 8 March.
