Lee Jae-Sung plays his part in victory over Bayern Munich

Lee Jae-Sung side 
Holstein Kiel who sit third in the Bundesliga 2, hosted Bayern Munich in the German Cup last night looking for a shock win. Then in one of the all-time great German Cup games, they fought back twice to do just that. 

All the drama 

After Bayern Munich had lost on Friday evening after being two goals up to Borussia M'gladbach you could forgive Holstein Kiel for having some hope. They had a lot more than a little hope too as they defeated the European Champions 6-5 on penalties. 

This was after a cup match that you love to see with the shock, the comeback goal in the 95th minute of injury time and then, of course, a win on penalties in a shoot out that had everyone biting their nails, not to forget this was with the backdrop of falling snow. 

It was not a smash and grab as the host kept their composure throughout as they looked to play out from the back in tricky conditions. At the front of this attack, they had the young Korean too in Lee Jae-Sung. 

Lee will always remember this match but he has had better games, despite this he did play the full match while four of the midfielders behind him made way throughout the match. 

Holstein played out a game that was about much more than just one player too from Bartels' low drive to level the match after Gnabry's opener to Wahl somehow putting this game into extra time in the dying seconds.

The extra time did not find the winner though as the game went to penalties with Holstein Kiel scoring all six of their spots kicks with Lee getting the fourth. In the end, it was won when Marc Roca missed from the spot and the man that started the drama Bartels fired home to set up a tie with Darmstadt 98.
