Union Berlin – FC Bayern Munich 2: 5: FCB strikes back after the cup debacle



FC Augsburg - TSG Hoffenheim 0: 4: Kramaric show!  Hoffenheim dismantles FCA

FC Bayern Munich has found its way back to success three days after the 0-5 debacle in the DFB Cup at Borussia Mönchengladbach. On the 10th matchday of the Bundesliga, the team, which was once again supervised by Dino Toppmöller, prevailed 5-2 (3-1) at Union Berlin.

Head coach Julian Nagelsmann had to pass for the fourth time because of his corona quarantine. From his living room he saw a double from Robert Lewandowski (15th, hand penalty and 23rd) and Leroy Sane’s 3-0, before Niko Gießelmann shortened (43rd).

After the break, Kingsley Coman (60th), Unions Julian Ryerson (65th) and Thomas Müller (79th) met. The latter praised the team for a “good reaction” after the game, but still seemed pissed off by the cup debacle in Gladbach: “Now we’re so relaxed here, we’re out of the cup anyway. We don’t just have one game lost, but a competition. “

FC Bayern was still able to look forward to a Bundesliga record despite persistent cup frustration: The Munich team now have 38 goals after just ten match days. At the same time in the history of the Bundesliga, no team has had more in their accounts.

Union Berlin – FC Bayern Munich: The reactions

Dino Toppmöller (assistant coach FC Bayern): “We are really happy that we were able to show the desired reaction. We knew that the opponents are very strong at home, that it will not be easy for us with the crowd. We had the game under control for the first 30 minutes, then we load it Opponents to take the next goal. I think overall we can be satisfied with the performance. “

Manuel Neuer (Captain FC Bayern): “Today we got the start we wanted before the game. The goals we conceded are of course annoying. But overall we are happy that we have now shown a different face.”

Urs Fischer (trainer Union Berlin): “We weren’t there in the first half, we didn’t get what we set out to do. We were too far apart, didn’t stress Bayern. And when they find spaces, you can see their quality. After the next goal we felt a bit of hope. In the second half I saw the face of Union. “

Union Berlin – FC Bayern Munich: The analysis

FC Bayern started with four newcomers compared to the debacle in Gladbach: Stanisic and Süle replaced the desolate Upamecano and Pavard in the back four, in midfield Tolisso celebrated his Bundesliga debut this season instead of the ailing Goretzka, with Coman instead of Gnabry.

Initially, the Munich team was anxious to gain security with long ball relay. Most of the time, however, the ball only circulated around the center line. It got dangerous over Sane, who, thanks to his extremely offensive backing man Davies, kept pulling from the left into the center and looking for the end there.

Sane Jaeckel’s handball provoked with one shot, which referee Osmers rightly punished with a penalty, which Lewandowski converted to 1-0 as the first part of his brace. Shortly after a big chance that had been missed, Sane rewarded himself with the 3-0. FC Bayern has now acted confidently and purposefully as usual and also led in the heights deservedly.

Only then did the previously harmless Unioners become more courageous and dangerous situations emerged. Gießelmann’s 1: 3 was preceded by a mistake by Stanisic, who then repeatedly seemed insecure against Becker at the beginning of the second half and infected his team a bit. In a now at times wild exchange of blows, both teams scored more goals, but the game never threatened to turn seriously.

The data of the game Union Berlin versus FC Bayern Munich

  • Gates: 0: 1 Lewandowksi (15th, hand penalty), 0: 2 Lewandowksi (23rd), 0: 3 Sane (35th), 1: 3 Gießelmann (43rd), 1: 4 Coman (60th), 2: 4 Ryerson (65th), 2: 5 Müller (79th)

The star of the game: Leroy Sane (FC Bayern Munich)

The most noticeable player on the part of FC Bayern. With his permanent runs into the center, Sane tore holes in the Union defensive. He initiated the penalty 1-0 with his arm-blocked shot, which he made 3-0 himself. In the 62nd, he was substituted for Musiala.

The flop of the game: Paul Jaeckel (Union Berlin)

With his handball, the right link of the Union triple chain was responsible for the penalty that led to the 0: 1. In addition, Jaeckel saw the yellow card, which from then on restricted him in the duels with Sane and the other Munich offensive players.

The referee: Harm Osmers

FC Bayern took the lead thanks to two standards, both of which were legitimate. Before the penalty, Jaeckel increased the area of ​​his body with his protective hand, before the free kick Knoche Lewandowski tore over. Although very close, it was also right not to recognize Becker’s alleged 2: 3 because of offside (44th).
