Bayern Munich 0-2 Borussia Dortmund: first reactions and observations | Top Vip News


Initial reactions and observations.

  • Forget about the title race for a second. Anyone who is upset about the title race right now is missing the point. This defeat leaves Bayern Munich only four points behind Stuttgart, which has one game less. At this point a third place is more likely than a comeback.
  • Once Tuchel replaced Thomas Müller, any chance of a comeback disappeared. The team immediately reverted to predictable U-ball and created no significant opportunities, except for Kane’s header, which was offside anyway. Why doesn’t the coach see this?
  • Harry Kane should have been substituted. He was fine today and the ankle injury may still be bothering him. He should take some time off because the Bundesliga cannot be saved, the Champions League has to be the priority at the moment.
  • It’s not that Bayern can win the CL playing like this. Right now, avoiding further humiliation seems to be the goal of the season.
  • Does anyone know why Mats Hummels suddenly turned Super Saiyan today? The guy was an absolute wall in the back. Nagelsmann should probably call him back to the German national team based on this performance alone.

Full time: Bayern Munich 0-2 Borussia Dortmund.

90′ — OFF PLAY. The VAR rules out Kane’s goal.

88’—Goal. Harry Kane makes it 2-1, but it’s probably too late to make a difference.

82’—Goal. Ryerson makes it 2-0. Well that’s it.

61′ — Substitutions: Coman, Gnabry and Tel replace Musiala, Sané and Müller.

Four. Five’- The second half is already underway!

Observations and analysis of halftime.

  • It is difficult to explain how Bayern Munich are losing at the moment. As for the chances, Dortmund should be behind. Maybe that’s how the ball bounces.
  • Mats Hummels was involved in everything today. He is defending Nagelsmann to take him to the European Championship.
  • Harry Kane owes Joshua Kimmich at least three assists. Are you still suffering from your ankle problem? He doesn’t seem as smart as usual.

10’—Goal. Karim Adeyemi makes it 1-0 out of nowhere.

Kick off: We are underway!

One hour until start: We have lineups! Bayern Munich start with a usual 4-2-3-1, with Thomas Müller wearing the captain’s armband in place of the injured Manuel Neuer. Harry Kane, Leroy Sané and Jamal Musiala are starters, while Sven Ulriech occupies the goalkeeper position. Eric Dier returns to the starting lineup, keeping his partnership with Matthijs de Ligt intact, while Konrad Laimer partners Leon Goretzka in midfield. Looks like a solid XI.

Der Klassiker is usually something more important than this. During the last fifteen years, Bayern Munich or Borussia Dortmund In the end they won the Bundesliga title. Now, however, neither team is doing as well.

Thomas Tuchel needs a win to keep up with Bayer Leverkusen, but the prospects of winning the league diminish with each passing game. Meanwhile, Edin Terzic and BVB will be happy to be included in next year’s list. Champions League. Neither team wants to lose this match, but it can be admitted that it is not a high-risk clash like in previous years.

With this in mind, could we see some rotation? On Bayern’s part, several players have just returned from their international commitments. Harry Kane, Manuel Neuer and Aleksandar Pavlović enter this match with doubts due to injuries and illnesses. Meanwhile, others, like Jamal Musiala, have simply been playing a lot of football lately.

It is up to the coach to make the proper calculations and judge their impact on the game. Given that Thomas Tuchel wants his team to build on its winning form, you can only imagine what he will choose.

It’s Bayern time.
