The win over Freiburg was not quite as glorious as the Hinrunde victory, but it was still impressive. Especially noting that fact that Bayern played an unfamiliar XI.

Before the game, Mandy Islacker was first awarded with the Golden Boot for her 19 goals in the previous Bundesliga season. At the time she was still netting for FFC Frankfurt. She already […]
The last game of the season was irrelevant for the table, but it was the last professional appearance of Xabi Alonso, Philipp Lahm, and Tom Starke. In our last game report of the season, therefore, we’re focusing less on tactical aspects, and more on other things. 3 things we noticed: 1. A good end to […]
Due to an unusual scheduling decision, the last game of the final matchday of the Bundesliga’s first half was played after the winter break, with FC Bayern away at SC Freiburg. Bayern spent the winter break in Qatar once again and played a short tournament in Düsseldorf last weekend, winning it with two victories against […]
The winter break is drawing to a close and the Bundesliga is back.
