FC Bayern Munich suffered a damper in the battle for the championship. On the 22nd matchday the leaders lost 1: 2 (0: 2) at Eintracht Frankfurt. With a win on Sunday against Hertha BSC, pursuers RB Leipzig can reduce the gap to Hansi Flick’s team to two points.
The top striker Silva, who suffered from back problems, did not get fit in time. Hütter was forced to give Jovic, who recently only acted as a joker, the chance from the start. In addition, Toure (for Durm) and Rode (for the yellow blocked Sow) moved into the team against the 2-0 win against Cologne.
On the other hand, Bayern coach Flick had to improvise even more than he had already done recently because of the short-term failures of Pavard (Corona-positive) and Tolisso (tendon tear in the thigh): He decided on Süle as a right-back and offered Roca on the double six next to Kimmich because Goretzka, who had at least returned to the squad, wasn’t ready for 90 minutes.
The guests lacked access and security in the center from the very first minute, the SGE determined the game on the bumpy track in the Waldstadion at will.
In particular, Kamada and Younes were out of reach for the Bavarian double six and repeatedly put the outside players, especially Kostic on the left, in the limelight. This not only resulted in the early leadership by Kamada (12th), who was brilliantly served by Kostic.
The 2-0 win by Younes almost 20 minutes later, a brilliant Sunday shot in the kink, fell over the Süle side.
After a remarkable first half, in which the Frankfurters sometimes pushed the Munich deep into their own half and hardly gave them counter opportunities, the tide turned. Flick brought Goretzka for Roca and apparently found the right words to motivate his offensive, which has so far been almost completely pale. It took only eight minutes for the long, sloppy Sane to kick off Lewandowski’s goal with a beautiful single action (53rd).
The Bavarians lacked the precision in the conclusion or they failed because of the brilliant Trapp.
Eintracht Frankfurt – FC Bayern Munich: the lineups
Frankfurt: Trapp – Tuta, Hinteregger, Ndicka – Hasebe, Rode (68. Ilsanker) – Toure, Kamada (90. + 3 Zuber), Younes (74. Barkok), Kostic – Jovic (68. Ache)
Bayern: Neuer – Süle, Boateng, Alaba, Davies – Kimmich, Roca (46th Goretzka) – Sane (90th Martinez), Choupo-Moting (82nd Musiala), Coman (82nd Hernandez) – Lewandowski
The data of the game
- Tore: 1: 0 Kamada (12.), 2: 0 Younes (31.), 2: 1 Lewandowski (53.)
- Kostic was also directly involved in at least one goal in the fifth BL game in a row – he had only managed that before in February / March 2019 (then even in seven).
- FC Bayern have now conceded 32 goals in this BL season – that was the last time there were in 1991/92 (even 33), when Munich only finished tenth at the end of the season.
- In no other BL game under Flick did Bayern allow as many opposing shots on goal in the first half as in this one (9) – so many were last at 1: 5 in Frankfurt in the last BL game under Flick’s predecessor Kovac.
The star of the game: Amin Younes (Eintracht Frankfurt)
The best game of his career? No matter what the little dribbler did (especially in round one): It had a hand and foot. With his fints and passes, he levered the Bayern defensive almost single-handedly. In this condition, a hot candidate for the national team – national coach Löw was at least a visit.
The flop of the game: Marc Roca (FC Bayern Munich)
The weakest Bavarian after Süle and Choupo-Moting. Had huge problems to structure the game of the guests and seemed overwhelmed overall. Often slipped away and only won 40 percent of his duels. Down for a break.
The focus was early on because his assistant on the sidelines suffered an ankle injury and had to be replaced. After that, he was mainly concerned with incurring the displeasure of the Munich team, as he let a lot go through despite the tough duel of the Frankfurt team. Flick received a yellow card for complaining about the hour. In the end, the home side actually had bigger reason to complain: Stegemann denied them a clear penalty after Davies fouled Ache in the penalty area.
