IIn the snowstorm, Fin Bartels strides towards the penalty spot. The Kieler has the sensation on his feet, in the sixth round of the penalty shootout Marc Roca was the first Munich player to miss. If Bartels were to score, the second division Holstein Kiel would move into the round of 16 of the DFB Cup after a terrific fight. Against the great FC Bayern. Against the Champions League winner. Bartels hits and seals a historic defeat. For the first time in 20 years, Bayern did not reach the second round.
Perhaps the problems of Bayern, which did not lose their status of invulnerability in the 3-2 defeat in Gladbach last Friday, are deeper. They start in the head, as can be seen in numerous conversations with managers and players.
