Eintracht Frankfurt wins the DFB Pokal 2018. Niko Kovac’s team defeats FC Bayern 3:1 in a hard-fought final. For Jupp Heynckes it was (for the time being) his last match as coach of FC Bayern – his 77th on the sideline in the DFB Pokal. In case you missed it Before the game there was […]
One last time to send eleven top players out on the pitch. One last time to get chased by cameras and take his place on the sideline. One last time to win and lift the golden trophy into Berlin’s night sky. Jupp Heynckes has big plans for Frankfurt, one last time this weekend. A familiar […]
FC Bayern succeeds in the dress rehearsal for Real Madrid. The Munich team wins 3:0 against Hannover 96. After the victory in the DFB Pokal semi-final, the Munich team still had a mandatory task in the Bundesliga before the match against Real Madrid. In case you missed it The biggest surprise came 75 minutes before […]
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 […]
With a 4-1 victory over Augsburg, FC Bayern secured their 28th German league title. It is their sixth championship in a row. With this win, Bayern manifested their dominating role during the 2010s. It’s the seventh league title during this period, interrupted only by two Dortmund championships. Starting formations FC Augsburg – FC Bayern Three […]
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 […]
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!
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 […]
