Instead, the Dutchman Joshua Zirkzee received a probation chance in the attack. “Robert is slightly injured and Joshua has developed very well,” said Flick before kick-off Sky. The Frenchman Kingsley Coman was available as a substitute player after the corona quarantine had expired.
Flick’s calculation did not work out, as the biting Hoffenheimers put the Munich team at risk for the entire duration of the game. The Kraichgauers jumped to the top of the table with the clear and well-deserved success. (Bundesliga table)
Bayern have been without defeat for 32 games
Since the game against Mönchengladbach, Bayern had not lost 32 games in a row, and in the previous 23 games, Munich had always left the field as winners. The program for FC Bayern remains tough – the national Supercup against Borussia Dortmund is already on Wednesday.
The people of Hoffenheim could hardly believe their luck. “A little sip”, announced TSG sports director Alexander Rosen at Sky, one will definitely treat himself after this “historic game”.
In front of 6030 admitted spectators in the Rhein-Neckar-Arena, the guests who had won the game in Sinsheim, which was overshadowed by insults against the Hoffenheim majority owner Dietmar Hopp 6-0 at the end of February, initially determined what happened, as expected. The Hoffenheim, whose new coach Sebastian Hoeneß had planned a lot before the duel with his ex-club, were waiting for the counterattack.
Bayern were lucky in the 11th minute. Referee Benjamin Brand (Unterspiesheim) interpreted a handball by the Munich central defender Jerome Boateng in his own penalty area as not punishable.
Dabbur hits by lob
Shortly afterwards the luck of Munich was over. After a Dennis Geiger corner, Bicakcic hit his head. A little later, Dabbur took advantage of the dropout of the French world champion Benjamin Pavard and increased Hoffenheim’s lead with a lob.
As a reaction to the two-goal deficit, Bayern risked a lot early on and exposed the defense. The Kraichgauer had such good counter-chances. However, the goal was marked by Kimmich – which caused Hoffenheim’s displeasure, as defender Bicakcic was injured on the ground at the time and had to go out shortly afterwards.
Even after that there was a lot going on. The Munich national goalkeeper Manuel Neuer was only lucky to steer a shot from the Croatian vice world champion Kramaric into the stoppage time of the first half.
Kramaric sets the end point with a penalty
At the beginning of the second round it was Dabbur who left two big chances within a few seconds (51st). On the other side, Zirkzee could not execute (57th). A few seconds later he was replaced by Lewandowski. Leon Goretzka also came for the very weak Pavard.
Although Bayern pushed for an equalization, the Munich team was tired. Completely unaccustomed to the lack of penetration in the offensive, the decisive passes often did not arrive. Top scorer Kramaric put the lid on with his fourth and fifth goals of the season – he set the end after a penalty for a foul caused by Neuer.
