FC Bayern: Nagelsmann expects punishment

The reason for his anger was the numerous tight situations, which, according to Nagelsmann, were all designed for Gladbach. “I think there were about 20 decisions that could have been made for either team and he always made the decision for Gladbach, in every situation. I think it was a terrible performance from the referee.”
FC Bayern: Thomas Müller is annoyed about the exploitation of opportunities
35 shots, 20 of them on target, only one hit. For Bayern, the worm was in there in front of the Gladbach goal and Yann Sommer once again outdid himself in the goal of the foals. “We don’t know any different that Yann Sommer plays his game of the year against us,” said Thomas Müller.
