Yesterday, in the second round of this season's Bundesliga, Bayern lost 1-4 away to Hoffenheim. In the first half, Bichakcic scored a header, Dabur made a single-handed effort, Kimmich pulled back a goal in the world wave, Bayern 1-2 behind Huo Village. In the second half, Kramaric scored twice and Neuer attacked to send points. In the end, Bayern lost 1-4 away to Hoffenheim, their first defeat in the new season, and their 23-game winning streak ended! After the game, six of the Bayern team scores given by the German media failed! The German media believes that Bayern coach Frick may use this fiasco to put pressure on top leaders for signings.
The German media scored 5 points for Neuer, Boateng, Alaba, Toliso, Gnabry and Zilkeze, and other players got 4 points without exception. (German scoring system: 1 is a perfect score, 4 is a passing score).
In his evaluation of Boateng, the German media wrote: “He encountered a lot of problems when facing Hoffenheim’s offense and often couldn’t keep up with the opponent’s rhythm.” The comments on Alaba were even more harsh: "The defense leader did not control the defensive position at all, especially the offside tactics completely failed." And Zilkeze's comment was: "The 57th minute hitting the crossbar was the only performance worthy of attention in the game. No substitute for Lewandowski."
For Bayern, who had just gone through 120 minutes of fierce battle last Thursday, the players' physical fitness was tested in yesterday's game. According to calculations by German media, if Bayern hopes to continue to defend the honor of the Triple Crown in the 2020/21 season, the team will participate in 57 games in 254 days, which is the most difficult schedule in the history of the Bundesliga.
Frick has previously asked Bayern's top executives to sign in this summer. After the 1-4 loss to Hoffenheim, this demand will become more urgent. German media even suspected that Flick might use this game to put pressure on management to some extent.
