Holstein Kiel Stuns Bayern Munich in DFB Pokal on Penalties

KIEL, Germany (AP) — Second-division team Holstein Kiel knocked Bayern Munich out of the German Cup by beating the defending champion 6-5 on penalties Wednesday after their rescheduled second-round game finished 2-2.

Fin Bartels struck the winning penalty to send the underdogs through after Bayern midfielder Marc Roca saw his spot kick saved by Kiel goalkeeper Ioannis Gelios. The Spanish midfielder was the only player to miss a penalty in the shootout.

It’s Bayern coach Hansi Flick’s first loss in the competition.

The teams had been due to play in December but the game was put back to give Bayern more time to cope with its busy schedule.
