Missed opportunity for a Bayern
Munich that, despite the return of Robert
Lewandowski after nearly a month off the pitch, he was totally outmatched by a Mainz (2-1) enrachado that he postponed, waiting for what he does this Sunday the Leipzig before him Stuttgart, the alirón of those of Hansi
Flick at least for a few hours.
The Opel Arena, a stadium in which the Bavarian team came from reaping extensive wins in previous seasons, seemed the ideal setting to finalize the achievement of the ninth Bundesliga consecutive of a Bayern who left sleepily in Mainz.
Sung of Neuer
They had not even passed 4 ‘when a seemingly harmless right hand from Jonathan
Burkardt surprised Manuel
Neuer, who could not shake off a very focused shot. Far from waking up, the current champion of the ‘sextete’ saw how the team directed by Bo
Svensson he ran into wood up to twice before, as early as 37 ‘, the Swede of Ghanaian origin Robin
Quaison He will comfortably head to the far post a direct free-kick before the inoperation of the visiting rear.
Triple flick change
The second goal of Mainz It unnerved the people of Munich and Lion
Goretzka, who was also returning after injury, was sent off before the break. He did not like what he saw Flick, who made a triple change after the restart. Nianzu, the Pearl Jamal
Musiala Y Choupo-Moting entered the green by Goretzka, Leroy
Sané Y Kingsley
Eat without actually having the desired effect on the game.
The ineffectiveness in attack of the Bayern, which did not give a feeling of being able to get closer on the scoreboard, lasted while the game became ugly with the passing of the minutes with harsh actions on the part of the two teams. The only positive note for those of Munich came in discount. A bit of Lewandowski benefiting from a flagrant error of Alexander
Hack, leaves the Pole -36 goals- just four from the record for goals in a single Bundesliga from Gerd
Müller, with 40, with three days to go.
Fifth victory in seven matches of a Mainz that seemed doomed before the arrival of Svensson and that now salvation is at hand. For their part, the Bavarians will have to wait for the Stuttgart scratch something from the Red Bull Arena or they’ll see a glimmer that seems inevitable to be postponed, at least, until next Saturday.
