Fans joke Bundesliga is ‘fixed’ after sprinklers stop Koln attack vs Bayern

Cheeky fans have called for Bayern Munich's title-winning Bundesliga victory over Koln to be investigated after sprinklers stopped an attacking move.

Thomas Tuchel's Bayern led 1-0 through Kingsley Coman to put themselves in pole position for the title as the hosts bared down on goal after 72 minutes.

Referee Sven Jablonski then called a halt to the contest as huge sprinklers popped out of the turf and began to water the playing surface – with Bayern then given back possession as they went on to win 2-1.

A cheeky reply said: "Investigate Bayern." A second added: "Fixed match." A third questioned: "That’s in insane way of rigging the game lmao there is no way that’s a mistake."

In reality, sprinkler malfunctions are not uncommon when they are controlled remotely with incidents in both Premier League and international football.

Koln were level through Dejan Ljubicic to hand Borussia Dortmund control of the title – but Jamal Musiala grabbed a winner with Mainz hanging on to a draw at the Westfalenstadion.

That mean Bayern won an 11th consecutive title with Dortmund missing out on the chance to win their first title since Jurgen Klopp left.

Julian Nagelsmann was sacked back in March, with Tuchel winning six of his 13 games in charge to win his first Bundesliga title as a manager at the expense of his former side.

Tuchel said: "Today we had the last shot and the last answer to all the questions with Jamal [Musiala]. We'll take it, but it was a crazy, crazy afternoon.

"When Leroy [Sane] couldn't finish his chance, I thought the match would sum up the entire phase I've been in charge here, and perhaps the entire season.

"We showed a reaction though today, and Jamal scored his screamer. It's incredible."
