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 […]
FC Bayern beat Borussia Dortmund 6:0. A game symbolising the Bundesliga season: Bayern outclass the competition without being seriously challenged.

Finally getting into the good stuff, the pair discuss the highly entertaining Dortmund – Bayern match and why it wasn’t the tactical masterclass we’re used to seeing from these two sides when they match up.
The 1:3 score would end up being flattering for an FCB side that managed to be clinical when it counted, and the excellent performances of Kimmich, Ulreich, Coman, Alaba, Suele and Robben get mentioned as well as a superior match from Pulisic.
Moving on to the Nationalelf, Maurice introduces the 58 men that might have a shot at traveling to Russia next summer as he and Susie try to pare down that list to a workable 26-man practice squad and a final 23-man roster (all the while keeping in mind that Jogi Loew is going to do exactly what Jogi Loew does).
They close out the episode briefly discussing the World Cup pots and ideal and not-so-ideal draws that Germany might face. We are happy to be getting back to club football, though, and will be back with you after the Augsburg match. Thank you, as always, for listening! Mia san mia.
