Serge Gnabry had given the visitors the lead on his return from injury when he reacted first to tap home after Ioannis Gelios had parried Thomas Müller’s header out.

However, Ole Werner’s side pegged Bayern back when a long ball over the top found it’s way to Finn Bartels who snook in behind Bouma Sarr to tuck the ball away.

Hansi Flick’s side went in at the break needing to regroup after a disjointed half and the interval worked wonders with Leroy Sané producing a beautiful curling effort from a free-kick to restore their lead.

Jamal Musiala was given another start on the right-hand side of Bayern’s attack and was unlucky not to add a goal to another impressive showing with an effort that Gelios did well to turn onto the post.

Bayern looked as if they were comfortably seeing the game out but got caught cold in the dying minutes.

Johannes van den Bergh’s looping cross was met by the powerful head of Hauke Wahl who levelled again for Kiel to take this game to extra-time.

The visitors then struck the woodwork again just before the break in extra-time when Joshua Kimmich’s tame effort looped onto the crossbar.

That was the closest either side came to nicking a winner in the extra 30 minutes and the second round tie moved to penalties to decide the winner.
