A frustrated Thomas Müller after Bayern’s defeat in Rome


Bayern leave again as losers. In the 1-0 defeat at Lazio Rome in the Champions League, Munich once again revealed major weaknesses. Immediately after the game, the club responded to racist comments online against one of its players.

They knew what was at stake. What happened in Leverkusen was too violent for that. FC Bayern lost 3-0 at the Werkself on Saturday and thus lost important points in the fight for the German championship title. The Munich team’s sometimes disastrous performance caused a lot of conversation – and clear words before the first leg of the round of 16 in the Champions League at Lazio Rome.

“We are FC Bayern Munich and we are there to achieve success. We are tickled,” said Christoph Freund, the sports director, before the flight to Rome and let it be known that he would also be happy about a “dirty victory”.

But nothing came of it. Bayern also revealed major weaknesses in the premier class against Lazio on Wednesday evening – the 0-1 (0-0) in the first leg of the round of 16 was not just the second defeat within a few days. It was also the second game in a row without a goal of their own. Mind you: this last happened in 2015.

“I can understand every fan who is pissed off,” says Müller

“I think we showed a reaction in the first half,” said Thomas Müller on DAZN after the game with a view to the game in Leverkusen. However, they failed to take advantage of three clear opportunities. “But the second half was again characterized by uncertainty. I can understand every fan who is pissed off. But we will stay together and give everything in all competitions until the last second, and the opponents have to be prepared for that. Who says things won’t look completely different in three weeks?” said Müller – but also admitted in the interview: “We’re going around in circles. We’re not happy, that’s completely clear, and you can do it as far as I’m concerned.”

On Saturday evening, after the bankruptcy at Bayer, Müller clearly criticized the team’s attitude. “I miss – now we can quote our Oliver Kahn – some of the balls and this freedom. We have a mentality in our game, especially with the ball.”

Tenth defeat in 43rd competitive game for Tuchel

Thomas Tuchel, the coach, said after the defeat in Rome that he was frustrated and angry – and spoke of some construction sites that they had. Looking at the first half, the coach said that a good half is not enough at this level. “We completely lost track in the second half. But we still have a second leg.”

According to the data service provider Opta, Tuchel suffered his tenth defeat in his 43rd competitive game as Bayern coach – that’s how many times his predecessor Julian Nagelsmann had lost in his 84 games. Captain Manuel Neuer said: “The ease is not there at the moment. You can feel the uncertainty. The question arises as to why this is the case. We need positive emotions.”

The comments were “absolutely despicable,” the people of Munich wrote. “FC Bayern condemns this in the strongest possible terms.”
