Augsburg 2-3 Bayern Munich: Kingsley Coman scores twice in comeback win

Bayern Munich twice came from behind to beat Augsburg and close the gap on Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund to two points.

Leon Goretzka turned into his own net to give the hosts a shock lead after only 13 seconds.

Kingsley Coman restored parity soon afterwards, only for Ji Dong-won to fire Augsburg back in front.

Coman equalised again in first-half stoppage time, before David Alaba completed the comeback.

There was bad news for Bayern, though, with Coman suffering an apparent recurrence of a left ankle injury deep into injury time, which forced him to hobble from the field.

He is now a doubt for the Champions League last-16 first-leg tie at Liverpool on Tuesday.

Bayern coach Niko Kovac told Eurosport: "We will have to see what happened to Kingsley - according to the doctors, it does not look that good at the moment."

Goretzka's opener - the fastest own goal in Bundesliga history - gave Augsburg the perfect start at the WWK Arena, but Niko Kovac's team soon hit their stride and could have won by a more comfortable margin.

Robert Lewandowski failed to hit the target from a promising position, while Coman slammed a close-range header against the crossbar.

Dortmund can restore their lead at the top to five points with victory over Nurnberg on Monday.
