KINGSLEY COMAN’s belated equalizer denied RB Salzburg a historic win in their first Champions League knockout tie.
Chukwubuike Adamu gave the home side the lead in the first half just 10 minutes after coming on from the bench.
And Salzburg is just a short time away from inflicting Bayern’s first away defeat in Europe in FOUR years.
Salzburg started brighter but suffered what looked like a big hit in the 10th minute when star striker Noah Okafor, 21 – who has been linked with Newcastle – passed away with a thigh wound.
But his replacement Adamu made Salzburg’s pressure pay off when he overcame Sven Ulreich from 17 yards.
Mohamed Camara found Karim Adeyemi by a beautiful diagonal line from deep within the courtyard of Salzburg.
The forward then beat Lucas Hernandez and found Brenden Aaronson on the edge of the box to rush into Adamu’s lane.

Aaronson stood firm after the contact situation with Joshua Kimmich in the penalty area and was forced to save soon after.
Salzburg was also denied a penalty at half-time.
Adeyemi beat midfielder Niklas Sule to the ball and down in a minimal collision situation.
However, referee Michael Oliver offered nothing and VAR agreed.
Benjamin Pavard then blocked Adamu’s shot on goal that could have been blocked after Ulreich blocked Adeyemi’s effort.
Salzburg goalkeeper Philipp Kohn also produced a superb brace to keep the goal in the late game after Leroy Sane’s brace against Coman.
He parried the ex-Man City winger’s shot before crossing his post to block the bounce.
Coman was then booked for kicking Nicolas Capaldo before Pavard broke through from the right.
Thomas Muller headed in and the winger darted in with his left flank from Kohn’s near post.
