Borussia Dortmund goalkeeper Gregor Kobel makes horrible mistake to concede ridiculous Bayern Munich opener
- Kobel massive mistake handed Bayern 1-0 lead
- Thomas Muller brace made it 3-0
- Dortmund would trail Bayern in title race with loss
WHAT HAPPENED? The goalkeeper attempted to launch a stray pass downfield, but appeared to miss the ball entirely, allowing it to trickle into an empty net. Dayot Upamecano, who played the original ball from his own half, was initially credited as the goalscorer, though the decision has since been changed to make it an own goal.
