FC Bayern met VfL Bochum during the Italian weekend at the Oktoberfest. Actually a feasible task, isn't it? The sheet music for the appearance of the FCB stars.
Munich – Saturday afternoon, Oktoberfest and a home game of FC Bayern. If VfL Bochum is also a guest, then a perfect day of football is inevitable. At least if you keep it with the record champions.
Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting (4th) and Harry Kane (12th) gave Bayern an early lead. After less than half an hour, Matthijs de Ligt scored to make it 3-0 (28th) and thus already ensured a small preliminary decision. Leroy Sané made it 4-0 before the break (38th).

In the second half, Kane increased the lead to 54-5 with a penalty kick in the 0th minute, before super joker Mathys Tel scored his goal in the 81st minute and made the half dozen. Shortly before the end, Kane scored his third goal to make it 7-0.
How long can he stand between the posts? Manuel Neuer can still take his time, because Ulreich is simply doing well at the moment. Was always there when he was challenged. Which, however, was also very rarely the case. Grade 3
The Moroccan got the chances from the start after the Tuchel announcement on Friday. However, he was hardly challenged defensively, but could not distinguish himself offensively. Didn't have to push his physical limits at all, but set up Kurt's third Kane goal before the end. Grade 2

Fancy a voyage of discovery?
Matthijs de Ligt
For the first time this season, he was allowed to start from the start. Scored directly with a nice header and was otherwise very focused. Saved once in defence after a dicey situation, then had to go off at the break with a knock. Bitter. Grade 2(from 46. Dayot Upamecano: Seamlessly lined up alongside Kim and, like de Ligt, was flawless there. Note 3)
As usual, the left part in central defence. Acted there against the man, in the air and in the build-up to the game without deficiencies. Grade 3
Prepared the Kane goal with a little dizziness. Pushed on the left again and again, but - as so often - did not always make the right decision. Grade 2 (from 65th Frans Krätzig, made his Bundesliga debut, o.B.)

Thinker and leader in the Bayern game. Consulted with Tuchel conspicuously often. He was unlucky that his great preparatory work didn't lead to a goal in the second half. Was then rested and substituted 15 minutes before the end. Note 2(from 77. Leon Goretzka, o.B.)
The Austrian was once again allowed to play in central midfield, ploughing alongside Kimmich as a ball hunter and thus giving him the space and space to be able to shape the game. Unfortunately, Laimer had unnecessary missed passes in his repertoire from time to time. Grade 3
The international remains in the form of his life. Unbelievably invigorating for the Bayern game, not to be grasped by the Bochum team for a second. Grade 1
Unlucky in the end, but a constant source of unrest for the Bochum defensive line. Contributed an assist and ensured that Felix Passlack's working day as his guard was over after just 35 minutes. Note 2(from 77. Thomas Müller, oB.)
Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting
The surprising starting XI nomination next to Kane paid off after four minutes when Choupo made it 1-0 for Munich. He also scored the penalty to make it 5-0. Successful appearance. Grade 2 (from 65. Mathys Tel: Scored after his substitution, o.B.)
Not every action is working yet, but the Englishman is getting better and better at getting along with his new teammates. Three goals and two assists take that into account. All in all, it makes a very successful working day. Grade 1
