This is the perfect debut for Thomas Tuchel! FC Bayern clearly beat BVB 4-2 in the main match of the Bundesliga and return to the top of the table. BVB goalkeeper Gregor Kobel portends Dortmund’s bitter defeat with a farcical own goal. Then Thomas Müller (2 goals) and Kingsley Coman meet for Bayern.

succeeds in the 72nd minute Emre Can The connection was hit by a penalty, in the 90th minute Malen scored to save Dortmund even more with a score of 4:2.

Less than a week after the departure of Julian Nagelsmann, the series champions passed Borussia Dortmund and were again two points ahead with eight games left in the season. Black-and-yellows have not scored a single point in Munich in nine league matches – goal difference: 8:37.

Tuchel relies on four defenders for top game

In his long-awaited premiere, Tuchel made a different bet than last time. Nagelsmann on the back four, started the offensive, by the way Leroy Sane and Miller. Sadio Mane, Serge Gnabry and Joao Cancelo, on the contrary, were forced to be content with the benches. Due to the short preparation time for the top-level fight, Tuchel announced a “very unfair squad”.

However, the chosen eleven had some problems living up to the trust placed in them in the early stages. Many inaccuracies forced Tuchel to enter his coaching area for the first time after just six minutes. Any attempt to push his team forward was futile at first. Instead, Borussia played a dangerous combination in the Munich free kick, with Matthijs de Ligt blocking a Marco Reus (7th) shot in a desperate situation.

Male caught a rainy day

The Munich leadership came out of nowhere. Dayot Upamecano hit a harmless ball from the depths of his own half, but the Kobel who jumped out missed the ball and, after a light touch, could only watch how it rolled into the goal. As a result, Borussia was clearly knocked out, Bayern discovered the joy of the game.

First, Leon Goretzka (17th) failed within a few seconds in a free standing against Kobel and in the Dortmund defense, but then Bayern converted the resulting icy corner. De Ligt moved a cross from Joshua Kimmich to the far post, where Muller pinned his hip.

Easy game for Muller

A bit later, Kobel allowed Sane’s shot to bounce forward and Müller scored his second goal with ease. The Munichers then switched down a few passes but continued to dominate as they pleased and allowed the ball to pass through their ranks to the applause of a crowded arena. By the way, I would have coman (45.) managed to make the score 4:0 before the break, but slipped while trying to shoot.

In the second half, the Frenchman did better and after a powerful preliminary work, Sane took advantage of the final decision. After that, Bayern were in complete control of the game, Borussia weathered the storm runs without much resistance, and it was lucky that Müller (61st) or Erik Maxime Choupo-Moting (63rd) did not advance further and ruined the height as a result.

At the final stage, the Munich team acted a little easier. Replacement Gnabry missed a penalty, which Can converted. Then he met Malen. (sid/ska)
