Jupp Heynckes secured his first win of his second spell as Bayern Munich manager after a dramatic last gasp win against Wolfsburg on Saturday.
Bayern Munich was without Dutch winger Arjen Robben and it showed as the Munich side showed very little imagination throughout. Bayern Munich earned their first three points of the Bundesliga season with Luiz Gustavo securing a dramatic, yet undeserved victory.
Bayern started the match slowly and should have been a goal down late on in the first half after Patrick Helmes goal was wrongly ruled out for offside. Munich did start the second half better with Bastian Schweinsteiger, Bayern's best player for most of the game, blazed a left footed shot over.
While it did not appear to be their day for a time, Bayern kept up the pressure and were finally rewarded with Gustavo's goal on 91 minutes. The Brazilian was on target with a strike from the edge of the area. Goalkeeper Diego Benaglio got a fingertip on the ball but unable to save.
Speaking after the game, Frank Ribery admitted Bayern Munich were fortunate to take all three points. "We were a little lucky but were a different team compared to the Monchengladbach game," said Ribery. "The three points were very important," he added.
