FC Bayern – News: Choupo-Moting achieves a double milestone

Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting scored the 1-0 for Bayern Munich on Sunday in Bayern’s 3-0 win over Union Berlin. And that was a milestone in two respects.

It was his ninth goal of the season in the Bundesliga, catching up with Serge Gnabry in the internal top scorer list. But there was much more: The goal was Choupo-Moting’s first against Union Berlin. He has now scored at least once against every current Bundesliga club!

The goal was also FC Bayern’s 100th competitive goal of the current season. No other club has so far broken this sound barrier in the top 5 leagues in Europe.

FC Bayern – News: Leon Goretzka unimpressed by BVB

FC Bayern’s 3-0 win over Union Berlin was a statement by the record champions against a direct pursuer in the table. But according to Leon Goretzka, the main competitor is still BVB, which doesn’t surprise him at all.

After the Union game, however, he also told reporters that his rivals were level on points: “I don’t know if I’m impressed.”

Goretzka continued: “I said before the season that Dortmund is the main competitor. It stays that way, that’s a good thing.” But the national player also emphasized: “We are prepared for anything.”

The direct duel with Borussia does not come until the beginning of April in the Allianz Arena.
