The most important news of the week: FC Bayern has reached the Champions League semi-finals. In a tough game, the Bavarians finally prevailed and are now fighting for a place in the Champions League final. Between the quarter-finals of the Champions League and the DFB Cup semi-finals, FC Bayern will play Borussia Mönchengladbach. After the […]
The months of uncertainty have come to an end: Niko Kovac has been appointed coach of FC Bayern Munich for the new season and is awarded a three-year contract. A short evaluation of an already much discussed trainer decision. Hasan Salihamidzic and Niko Kovac were lying in each other’s arms and stretched out their hands […]
Granted with only four teams left in the tournament it wasn’t unlikely at all for FC Bayern to draw Real Madrid in the semis. Still some might be upset that once more a final versus this great club is not possible. Even our editorial staff was discussing this topic. On the one hand you could […]
Since the 2009/10 season, FC Bayern has reached the Champions League semi-finals six times. Since then, only Inter Milan (2011) and Real Madrid (2017) have managed to stop the five-time CL winner. After the first leg in Sevilla (2:1) the Munich team had good chances to push the number to seven. But after the return […]
The thrashing of BVB is up first as Susie muses just how terrible Dortmund have been playing of late. After a few giggles, the trio discuss Bayern’s verticality of play and how a lot of their goals came from interceptions. The midfield trio of Thomas Mueller, James Rodriguez and Javi Martinez is widely praised, but what does this mean for Thiago Alcantara?
Moving on to Sevilla, Maurice and Susie ponder whether Jupp Heynckes’ starting XI was the correct one for this match, the awesomeness of *that* Martinez tackle, and the very poor play of Juan Bernat. Sevilla would be unable to keep up their first half furious pace, and the podcast team shows some love for Thiago’s winning goal. Franck Ribery’s silly early yellow card is also chatted about, and well as how his emotions tend to dictate how FCB plays.
They end the episode with another very funny round table discussion over who the next Bayern coach will be. Thank you, as always, for joining us! Mia san mia.
The Bavarians will compete in Seville on Tuesday evening. While the public in Germany is talking about “luck of the draw”, the quarter-final opponent was preparing to beat the great FC Barcelona at the weekend. In this preview we will be introducing the Spaniards – apparently this is also urgently necessary. Yes, it could have […]
Bayern Munich v Borussia Dortmund. That means speed, emotions, great tradition, contrasts and rivalry. There are few other matches in German football that electrify the country as much as this one. That was especially the case between the Klopp era and 2016. Since then, however, the tension has been gradually decreasing. Klopp against van Gaal, […]
Exciting weeks are now behind the Reds. Apart from a few setbacks, there was above all a positive development. The game on Sunday in Leipzig will practically end the preparation for the most important stretch of the season. After the international break, things really get going. Jupp Heynckes can be quite satisfied with the path […]
