Julian Nagelsmann suffered his first defeat as Bayern Munich coach on Sunday as Eintracht Frankfurt snatched a dramatic 2-1 away win with a late winner from Filip Kostic.
Kostic drilled a low shot past Manuel Neuer seven minutes from time to hand Frankfurt their first win in Munich for more than two decades and condemn Bayern to their first defeat of the season.

“It always hurts to lose, but this defeat hurts a bit more because it was avoidable,” Nagelsmann told DAZN broadcaster.
“We were punished today for not taking our chances.”
Despite dominating Frankfurt for much of the game, Bayern succumbed to their first league home defeat since 2019 and now sit just one point clear of Borussia Dortmund in the table.
Kostic’s winner also gave Frankfurt their first league win of the season, lifting the pressure on new coach Oliver Glasner.
“It was the first time I have won in Munich as a coach, and you don’t forget your first time,” joked a beaming Glasner.
“We’ve been chasing this win for a while now and have had plenty of chances. The fact that we have got it against Bayern makes it even sweeter,” added Frankfurt captain Hinteregger.
Leon Goretzka gave Bayern a deserved lead after a dominant first half-hour, slotting in a low finish after a smart lay-off from Robert Lewandowski.
But the hosts were left reeling a few minutes later, as Martin Hinteregger sent a thundering header past Neuer at a corner to level the scores.
Lewandowski almost restored the lead shortly before the hour-mark, but Frankfurt keeper Kevin Trapp denied the Polish star at point-blank range with a brilliant reflex saves.
It was the first of a string of second-half stops from Trapp, whose heroics kept Frankfurt in the game before Kostic’s winner sealed Bayern’s fate.
