The elimination conceded by Bayern Munich in the German Cup is a real task.
The new year is definitely off to a bad start for the Bayern Munich. Five days after his incredible loss to the Borussia Monchengladbach (3-2), conceded despite two goals in advance after less than half an hour of play, the Bavarian club was left with another big disappointment, this time in the German Cup.
Traveling to Kiel, resident of the second division, Hans-Dieter Flick’s men were indeed eliminated in the round of 16, beaten on penalties (6 tab to 5) after a score of parity (2-2) in end of regulation time. Bayern seemed to be heading towards a minimalist qualification thanks to two goals signed Serge Gnabry and Leroy Sané but was eventually joined in the dying moments of added time.
After only 15 days in 2021, Bayern, which had signed a resounding treble last season, has already lost as many matches as the whole of 2020. And this second setback of the year has already entered the annals of football German. It was indeed necessary to go back 20 years to find traces of a similar quack for the Bavarian giant. 1er November 2000, the Rotten had indeed been released, again on penalties, by Magdeburg, which was then playing in 4e division. “It is certainly not the best phase for FC Bayern at the moment”, could well confide Thomas Müller after the failure of the European champions, Wednesday.
