Munich Julian Nagelsmann had predicted an exciting game day. This probably robs all non-Bayern fans the illusion that the championship trophy will not end up in Munich again. Even Freiburg’s defensive artists do not withstand the offensive force.
Thomas Müller already had a premonition after the well done afternoon work of the 100-goal Bayern, which promptly came true. “We also wanted to pass the pressure on to Dortmund,” said the Munich spokesman, almost clairvoyantly.
According to coach Julian Nagelsmann, Bayern’s 2-1 (1-0) 2-1 (1-0) game against FC Bayern’s undefeated challenger SC Freiburg, who was undefeated until Saturday, was just three hours old, when it came true around 400 kilometers away Leipziger Stadion Müller’s “hope that Dortmund will drop points and that we can work out a small lead in the table”. There are four points on BVB, six on Freiburg. “There is nothing more beautiful,” enthused Müller.
“Are there to win these games”
The 11th matchday should have robbed all non-Bayern fans of the illusion that the championship trophy in 2022 will not be presented to Müller and Co. for the tenth time in a row. Goalscorer Leon Goretzka expressed the self-image of the series champions as follows: “That was a top game. We are here to win these games. “
Before that there was a 4: 1 in Leipzig and a 5: 1 in Leverkusen. “We play excellent football”, praised club patron Uli Hoeneß on Sky: “We’ll forget the game against Gladbach.” The record winner said goodbye to the DFB Cup with a 0: 5.
Midfield player Goretzka (30th minute) and world footballer Robert Lewandowski (75th) with goal number 13 of the season as well as the national goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, who was very strong at the end, put the 75,000 spectators in the Allianz Arena, which was full for the first time since March 8, 2020, in a festive mood . Janik Haberer’s connection goal in stoppage time came too late for a Freiburg draw comeback.
A full stadium also inspires
The Bayern stars jumped happily in front of the fan curve. “Scoring a goal in front of a full house is fun and brings back a bit of the magic that we were missing,” said Goretzka in the middle of the fourth Corona wave. It was not easy for Bayern to win against the best defense in the league. National player Goretzka gave a simple reason for this: “We played against a good team.”
Christian Streich had to surrender to the offensive force of the record champion in his 300th league game as a coach with his defensive SC collective. “We can’t do more than we’ve done. We were brave, died, ran a lot, played football, ”said the 56-year-old.
Bayern’s shooters have now scored 100 goals in the 2021 calendar year. The Bundesliga record is still held by 1. FC Köln with 101 goals in 1977. But it will fall if there are six more match days until Christmas. “The team plays incredibly well offensively. She is hungry and keeps on going, even if she has scored two, three or four goals, ”enthused sports director Hasan Salihamidzic.
Even more offensive under Nagelsmann
Nagelsmann sets up and straightens his team even more offensively than seven-title predecessor Hansi Flick. Streich called this approach logical. “If you have a team with this line-up, you obviously play offensively. I don’t see any alternative for Bayern Munich to play offensively, ”said the football teacher in the arena press room.
His Sitzbar Nagelsmann (34) listened attentively to the flattering statements of the oldest coach in the league. “I’m not very familiar with such world class players. I’ve never coached people like that, “flirted Streich:” But the point is that you get them to do anything against the ball. Since Julian succeeds, Bayern Munich is a world class team. ”Period!
And the sports club? Is on the way to Europe, even if Streich growled: “I deal with prognoses and all the talk of the Champions League and that sort of thing in no time at all. The important thing is that I keep that away from the team. “He asked the reporters to just let him do it:” Take care of Bayern, Dortmund and the others – and leave my boys alone. “
