Joshua Kimmich was the hero for Bayern Munich on Saturday as his solitary strike in the 89th minute gave the Bavarians a hard-earned 0-1 win over Hamburger SV.
Going into Saturday’s game, the defending champions had enjoyed a perfect start to the season winning all their earlier four League ties.
However, Saturday was looking like a bad day in office for Carlo Ancelootti’ side as they were pushed to the wall by Hamburger SV who are without a win so far this season.
Expectedly, Bayern had the bulk of the possession, and turned up the pressure considerably after a sleepy first half.
At the end, Bayern were spared their blushes when Kimmich turned in Franck Ribery’s low cross from close range, just as the home side looked set for a point.
Hamburger goalkeeper Rene Adler had made a series of fine saves, most notably from Robert Lewandowski’s close-range shot.
Bayern did suffer a setback when centre-back Mats Hummels came off with a knee injury soon after half-time.
Hummels will be assessed before Wednesday’s Champions League trip to Atletico Madrid.
