Bayern debacle in the DFB Cup: dismantled by the Gladbachers


FC Bayern has not come under the wheels for a long time. In the 0: 5 against intoxicating Gladbachers, the team was completely beside them. And proved that the debates of the past few days have left their mark.

At a loss after the 0: 5 in Mönchengladbach



Scene of the game:

There were so many, there were mainly two: Before the 2-0, the Gladbachers combined through the defense of Bayern Munich that the first remembered the blessed "Borussia Barcelona" under Lucien Favre with tears of emotion .

Borussia’s Kouadio Koné, Jonas Hofmann, Lars Stindl and Ramy Bensebaini dismantled the Bayern defense into its individual parts within seconds.

So the Munich have not been taken apart for a long time.

And the second scene was the one before the 40th Breel Embolo actually has no chance in a dogfight against Bayern defender Dayot Upamecano, he is standing alone against the Bayern defense.

In the end the ball is in the goal.

A reflection of the complete helplessness of the Bayern defense.

Result of the game:

5: 0: I beg your pardon? So again: Five to zero for Borussia Mönchengladbach against Bayern Munich. Goals by Kouadio Koné (2nd), Ramy Benasebaini (12th / 19th), Breel Embolo (52nd / 57th). Although: It's not that special at all. That happened on May 14, 1974 in the Bundesliga (goals by Heynckes, Simonsen, Bonhof, Heynckes, Köstner). You can find the match report for 2021 here.

The first half:

Borussia played themselves into a frenzy from the first minute. After just two minutes, Koné took advantage of the fact that Upamecano and his defensive colleague Lucas Hernández were completely beside them that evening. The 2-0 has already been described, in the 3-0 Borussia received a penalty, which with video evidence (which will only be used from the next round) might not have been given when Hernández at least unhappy started against Embolo. And this time no Gladbacher nailed the penalty kick into the clouds like Lothar Matthäus and Dante in previous cup matches against Bayern. Everything was fine that evening. No other team has pressed against Bayern so effectively in months.

The second half:

It went on the same way. Embolo prevailed at 4-0 with all his brute physical strength to 4-0 and because everything is going well that evening anyway, he made it 5-0 five minutes later. Bayern were already atomized at this point, the few goal conditions that they still have will be destroyed by Gladbach's goalkeeper Yann Sommer. The Borussia were gracious and left it with the five goals.

Say of the game:

Towards the end, the audience chanted "Bye Bye Bayern" and thus proved a historical memory. The saying comes from the former Frankfurt trainer Klaus Toppmöller, the father of Dino Toppmöller, who, as Bayern assistant, had to represent the corona-ill head coach Julian Nagelsmann on the sidelines in the evening. Nagelsmann was sitting in his kitchen at home and had to endure this historic bankruptcy in North Rhine-Westphalia, the land of kitchen builders, from afar.

Noise from the game: In

terms of sport, everything at Bayern has been honeymoon so far, but they still came with unpleasant topics in their luggage. The illness of Nagelsmann, Lucas Hernández received the news in the morning that he did not have to serve a prison sentence in the case of his former partner - but he looked anything but, well, liberated on the field. And Joshua Kimmich did not seem to have left the debates about his vaccination status without a trace. Not only did he make an inhibited impression, the whole team seemed infected. The FC Bayern players are obviously not immune to such excitement either.

History of the game:

Do you still know Laurentiu Reghecampf?

If not: This is the man who made sure that Alemannia Aachen led 3-0 against FC Bayern at halftime in the 2006 Cup.

That was the only time before Wednesday that the glorious FCB were 3-0 down in a cup game at the break.

Incidentally, today's Bayern sports director Hasan Salihamidžić was also part of the team at that time.

Statistics of the game:

Since 2011 Mönchengladbach has won a competitive game nine times against FC Bayern.

Otherwise only Borussia Dortmund managed to do that.

Player of the Game:

Breel Embolo has a reputation for being a mood player.

If things don't go well for the Gladbach striker at the start of the game, little works, sometimes nothing at all.

But when he's in the mood, a game like Wednesday night comes out.

His physicality overwhelmed the Bayern defenders.

They literally bounced off him.

Quote from the game:

"Bayern are very close at 1: 5." They can frame the sentence by ARD reporter Tom Bartels after Serge Gnabry scored a goal in Gladbach.

Or Julian Nagelsmann hangs it as a memorial in the Bayern cabin.

The consolation of the game I:

With 1860 there is still another Munich club in the 3rd round.

The consolation of the game II:

Bayern are vulnerable.

Somehow that is a good insight for them too.

For everyone else anyway.
