DThe present matchday is symbolic of the highest of the Bundesliga this season. Bayer Leverkusen wins, as soon as once more with a successful aim shortly earlier than the top. Bayern-like is what we’d have mentioned and written up to now. And FC Bayern? Defeat once more, as has occurred far too usually this season. In phrases of factors, the file champions are actually nearer to fifth place within the desk than first. What a bitter end result for the world membership after 27 video games. This shouldn’t be suitable with the membership motto “Mia san Mia”.

The Munich staff confirmed far too little within the 0:2 (0:1) in opposition to Borussia Dortmund on Saturday night. So no staff seems that also believes within the title. The gamers are a thriller to themselves.

It was a sleepy, cold efficiency in a prestigious duel. BVB ran seven kilometers greater than Bayern. Munich goalkeeper Sven Ulreich was proper along with his assertion after the ultimate whistle: Once once more the staff confirmed clearly too little vitality. And you must query your self.
