Three Things We Noticed: Leverkusen – Bayern 2:6 (1:2)

Bayern reach the cup final! A wild match ends with a clear 6-2 scoreline, however it was far from convincing defensively. Also, Ulreich yet again. Leverkusen, having just beaten Leipzig and Frankfurt 4-1 respectively, entered this match high on confidence. Bayern on the other hand were well-rested, with most of the team following the league […]

Five Things We Noticed: FC Bayern – Borussia Dortmund 6:0 (5:0)

FC Bayern beat Borussia Dortmund 6:0. A game symbolising the Bundesliga season: Bayern outclass the competition without being seriously challenged. For years, the DFL has been trying to market the matches between Bayern and Dortmund as a kind of “German Classico” and regularly schedules the return leg for April. Year after year, however, the hope […]

MSR-EN022 A loss, some wins, a cat and DFB

It’s far more interesting to talk about a loss than it is to chat about wins for Bayern Munich, so the pair treat this (relatively) short podcast as such.

First up is the standard HSV butt-kicking that FCB have handed down over the last couple of seasons: Is this the year the clock actually stops in Hamburg? Is losing them to 2. Bundesliga a great loss? While Thomas Mueller had a fantastic match, is Hamburg the correct team for him to be judged on?

Next the duo travel to the seething crowds in Istanbul, but sadly, with Bayern being up 5:0 in the first leg, the result was already a foregone conclusion. But, wait! The star of the show was a cat! (And no, to all who asked, it was not Susie’s cat.)

The loss to Leipzig brings up plenty of questions from Jupp Heynckes’ selection, to what in the world was going on with Sebastian Rudy, but the one thing that was definitely agreed on by both Maurice and Susie was that Bayern wholly deserved to take a loss here. Of course this comes from a place of extreme privilege noting that Bayern will be holding the Meisterschale very soon.

Segueing nicely from there, the pair ask some legitimate questions about Joachim Loew’s German National team selection, like: Why was Rudy called up? There’s the usual banter over “who would you rather?” as the DFB now will truly start to take some shape with the side they’ll bring to Russia.

Thank you, as always, for listening in! We’ll rejoin you for a round-up after the friendlies with the hope that no one gets hurt before getting back into the heart of the season. Mia San Mia!

Three things we noticed: RB Leipzig – FC Bayern 2:1 (1:1)

With a weak performance in Leipzig, Bayern lose 1:2. After making it into the Champions League quarter-finals, the Reds met RB Leipzig this matchday, who also progressed one round during the week in the Europa League. Jupp Heynckes rotated strongly in comparison to the game against Besiktas. Niklas Süle and Joshua Kimmich started instead of […]

Preview: SC Freiburg – FC Bayern

On Sunday, FC Bayern will be playing in Breisgau. Traditionally, games in Freiburg are a difficult affair for the record champion. Very often these matches were decided in the final minutes. Nevertheless, there is no reason to panic for the Reds. Not only the lead in the league table is comfortable, but also the record […]

3 Things We Noticed: FC Bayern – Hertha BSC 0-0

Hertha BSC have ended Munich’s win streak. They’ve gained a point against a mostly uncreative Bayern side with a compact defense. It was the 66th time the two teams from the German capital and the record champion from the Isar met in the Bundesliga. Munich went into the game on a 14 game win streak. […]

3 Things We Noticed: FC Bayern – Besiktas 5:0 (1:0)

A red card, a forced change, a big win. Despite some early struggles, Bayern managed to beat Besiktas with a scoreline that should be more than enough to go through to the quarter finals. After only finishing the group as second placed team, Bayern were prepared for the worst. Luckily enough, they got one of […]
