Bundesliga: Bayern self-critical after 1-1 at Union Berlin

BAyern rescuer Robert Lewandowski marched into the cabin with a dark expression after the near disgrace of Berlin, Thomas Müller also looked annoyed, and a disappointed coach Hansi Flick immediately went straight to the analysis. “We’re not making the freshest impression right now,” said the coach of record champions Bayern Munich after the 1-1 (0-1) win at Underdog Union Berlin. Fatigue did indeed speak on the faces of the people of Munich, who these days seem by no means invincible. And that really gets on their minds.

“What was it? That is the golden question, “said a slightly angry Müller after the game on ZDF:” In any case, before the game we don’t intend to be careless for the first 20 minutes – of course. But it still seems to happen to us that we let ourselves be taken by surprise. And that only then does the anger engine work a little. ”One explanation would be that the stress caused by the high frequency of the games costs even Bayern with their superb squad substance and concentration.

The 17 goals conceded in eleven league games so far would be proof of this, and Bayern have not won three of the last four Bundesliga duels. In addition to the lack of mental freshness, Flick gave very practical reasons for this development. “It’s just that we have to change frequently because of the stress. That’s completely normal, “said the 55-year-old:” And the vote that we had last season is simply not possible. “

That was quickly visible in Berlin, because Union pressed tirelessly. The hosts had the best chances early on and scored through Grischa Prömel (4th). Bayern wobbled defensively and seemed impressed by the passionately fighting hosts. Most of all, Flick missed the self-confidence in his team’s game, the too often tried “Mia-san-mia” feeling. “We have to believe in our quality even under pressure,” demanded Flick.
