This Saturday there was an unusual episode in the Bundesliga, in the match between Freiburg and Bayern Munich. Although the Bavarian team, the current leader, usually shows ample dominance over their rivals, as if they were playing with an extra man, this time they did so before the surprised gaze of many. By mistake, after a change, Bayern had 12 players on the court and played for several seconds like that. What will happen now?
The networks exploded with the curious moment, in which Bayern played a few seconds with 12 players. In the image that has gone viral, 11 field players are seen, not counting their goalkeeper Manuel Neuer. Those who noticed what was happening were the VAR men, who immediately informed the referee and notified the team.
The screenshot is relatively clear: 11 outfield players from the @FCBayern in that place It really doesn’t matter how long. If an ineligible player is substituted and immediately substituted again, the game is also qualified for the opponents. interesting that #DFB decide #SCFFCB @spox pic.twitter.com/9e1NTnY8jT

Whose mistake was it? Bayern manager, julian nagelsman indicated that the fact of playing 17 seconds with 12 players was due to an error by the fourth official. Kingsley Coman, who was supposed to walk off the field, didn’t because the referee didn’t show him his jersey number. On the other hand, Christian Streich, coach of the local team, merged into a hug with Naglsmann at the end of the game, where they exchanged smiles at what happened. The coach said that his club does not plan to fight on the desk for the points they lost, 1-4.
