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. […]
Early February, 6:30 pm, snowfall, floodlight, cup game in a small third division stadium in East Westphalia – is there anything more beautiful? Definitely. With the away game in Paderborn, FC Bayern had a real challenge to start into the most important months of the season, but succeeded with flying colours. The analysis of a […]
At Miasanrot, we are always on the hunt for new statistics, but this time, we are bringing back an almost forgotten one – EFFIFU. This one shows how important goals of a single player are for his team. What is EFFIFU? EFFIFU, short for “efficient footballer” in German, was created by Sport Media Service GmbH. […]
A win is a win! Bayern beat Dortmund 2-1 and reach the cup quarterfinals. It was a win that was both not clear enough and lucky. Dortmund travelled to Munich, having just hired a new coach in Peter Stöger. Both teams secured a rather lucky but certainly feel-good win on Bundesliga matchday 17, as Bayern […]
But before they dug into those two topics, Susie and Maurice chat about how they came by their Bayern fandoms, the possibility of an alternate World Cup tournament and Robert Lewandowski’s new hair don’t.
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.
FC Bayern beat BVB in a passionate 3-1 clash. Due to this win, Bayern extend their league lead. Before the last international match break, the signs were diametrically opposed. Bayern had just given away consecutive two-goal leads, while Dortmund were leading the table. This time, with a three-point lead and odds in their favor, the […]
Rarely have there been such heated discussions about a game in the aftermath as about the cup match between Leipzig and Bayern on Wednesday. Unlucky referee decisions but also strong goalkeeping performances made the game a real highlight. With these two teams facing each other again just days later, Bayern had a chance to grab […]
The mood hasn’t been overly positive in Munich in the opening days of the Oktoberfest. However, this changed on Saturday afternoon. The 4-0 against Mainz 05 was a strong performance and the end to many discussions in recent weeks. FC Bayern vs. Mainz 05, starting formations 3 things we noticed: 1. Coman plays well In […]
