The yardstick, the assessment of one’s position, the maturity test – Borussia Dortmund has always been given all these labels in recent years when the top match against FC Bayern was up for grabs. This season this applies to both teams. Where is this Bundesliga season heading? BVB can take a big step. In Dortmund, […]
FC Bayern won the first away match of the season against VfB Stuttgart 3:0. The team convinced especially in the second half. During the week, the men from Munich gave a fitting goodbye to Bastian Schweinsteiger. From Wednesday at the latest, however, the focus was once more on the bread and butter of the Bundesliga […]
Winning the Supercup with ease, but with difficulty for a long time in the DFB Pokal: After a mixed preseason, the Bayern team started into the new Bundesliga season this Friday evening. At the beginning of the 56th Bundesliga season, the Reds opened against TSG from Hoffenheim. Many things are new in the German top […]
FC Bayern are into the second round of the 2018/19 DFB Pokal. Bayern laboured to a 1-0 win against SV Drochtersen/Assel. A pitch that was hard to play on, two changing rooms (because one would have been too small) and a highly motivated opponent from the fourth division. Bayern sensed early on that the encounter […]
It has not been the World Cup of FC Bayern. Since 1990, at least one current player of the record champion had always scored at a World Cup. This chain will likely break in Russia in 2018. But is this really a terrible thing? There’s more to this issue than just facts. It’s absurd to […]
Bayern got a slow start against Hannover, but eventually ran out 3:0 victors in what is now a basically meaningless Bundesliga match. And the big stuff comes in the second half of the pod where we’ll discuss the 1:2 loss at home to Real Madrid, and all the news surrounding the Champions League semi final tie.
Before delving in to the pair of matches, Susie and Dennis chat about their geek fandoms and why exactly the podcast was being recorded in the middle of the night in Germany.
Getting back to the pressing topics, the Hannover match appears first with most of the talk pointed on U-19 Lukas Mai and his debut as the first 2000-era player for Bayern, and his signing to a professional contract. But, the pair realize nobody really is interested in this particular Bundesliga match, so they move on rather quickly…
Whew. The loss to Real Madrid is the heart of the podcast– with a few segues elsewhere– as the duo break down the match tactically, and call out performances pretty much across the board. Might Jupp Heynckes have been able to change the match more effectively had he not been hampered by two early substitutions? Is Robert Lewandowski really a flop for Bayern? What did Madrid do particularly well? Did Franck Ribery really have a “great” match?
Assessing Bayern’s chances in the return tie at the Bernabeu– and how Bayern might go through to the final are talked about before ending with some thoughts on Niko Kovac, Eintracht Frankfurt, Saturday’s match and the Pokal finale.
Thanks, loyal listeners, as always. We’ll be back shortly! Mia san mia. Mia san Rot.
