Bayern: a machine with a software error

_ from Villarreal reports Georg Holzner _

Bayern’s 0: 1 defeat at the FC Villarreal is deserved. And she could hardly believe, even higher can be out of the currently seventh the La League.

The Team of Trainer Unai Emery had a plan, did not move back like other Bayern opponents, but sought the playful solutions. And FC Bayern? The showed of everything too little in the Estadio de la Ceramica. Of all.

The quality question regarding the squad may be made

The defensive wobbled as many times as many times – the quality question regarding the hardware, ie the squad, may certainly be made in this case. The midfield center had little access to the game, only when Leon Goretzka was replaced, Bavaria was present. And forwards the long time this season so reliable machine since the second half now also with a software error.

With the ball, the Bayern knew in the offensively little to begin. No science before the break is a clear indication for this uninspired occurrence. Much in the attacking game of Bayern is very random, Robert Lewandowski was barely visible – even because he was not served. The wingers Serge Gnabry and Leroy Sané disappointed; Only when working Kingsley Coman came the feeling, it could be dangerous. However, it stayed with the feeling.

Where the Bavaria dominated in the past games, calm down and raise the pace after her taste, where she played the ball 50 times and run the opponent, a certain uncertainty is visible in this year 2022.

The league illused about much

Of course, this 0: 1 does not even have a system crash yet, yet all programs must be examined at the Säbener Straße. While this result may be surprising in view of the data on the paper, it had been suggested in recent weeks and months.

And in the form of: how long is that good, what happens in Munich? In the Bundesliga, the positive results decreased across the obvious problems; The weakness of national competition did the rest. So what should one at the sovereign leader, who was the only German team still linged in the Champions League and there as the only team without defeat, also criticize?

The 3: 2 against Leipzig was schöngeredet, but was just as happy as the two draws in Salzburg (1: 1) and against Leverkusen (1: 1). Bayern could have been back quickly in the eighth-final return to the Austrians (7: 1); Against Union Berlin (4: 0), the Munich needed a superior manuel new; And the 1-0 in Frankfurt was just as on shaky legs as the 1: 1 in Hoffenheim.

Remains Emery’s series, Bavaria would be out

Against Villarreal, which lie several best chances, is in the second leg on Tuesday (21 clock, live! At Georg Holzner) logically everything else in it. Finally, FC Bayern and its highly gifted individualists are always able to shoot teams 3-0 or 4: 0 from the Allianz Arena. But beware: Villarreal is not Salzburg. And the coach is experienced. Since his change to the Spaniards in the summer of 2020, he has not lost a European K.-O. game. If this series persists, Bavaria would be out. And crashed the system.
