FC Bayern Munich wins 5-1 at Union Berlin in the Bundesliga

Unlike his colleague Nenad Bjelica, who stood all the time, Thomas Tuchel watched his FC Bayern’s game at 1. FC Union sitting down most of the time. This had the advantage that the Munich coach was later able to walk through the interview zone more rested and energetic and answer all the questions with perseverance. He spoke relaxedly into the microphones, the 5-1 win against weak Berlin helped a lot, but perhaps it was the overall situation that energized Tuchel. During the week, FC Bayern made it into the semi-finals of the Champions League, for the first time in four years. “This is not business as usual for us either,” said Thomas Müller.

The win against Arsenal was primarily credited to Tuchel. There was talk of a tactical masterpiece that only a genius like Tuchel could achieve. No outpourings were necessary for the big win in Berlin, a solid performance against weak hosts was enough, but that shouldn’t hide Bayern’s enthusiasm.

The 90 minutes in the An der Alten Försterei stadium gave the impression that it was a completely normal spring for FC Bayern. But as we all know, that’s not it. The three points earned in the capital simply served to ensure that the Champions League can also be played in Munich next season. The championship is long gone, Leverkusen was crowned last weekend. So no title defense, it’s just about second place, or “a good feeling and confirmation of the good work,” as Thomas Müller said.

Encouragement for the coming weeks

The upcoming two semi-final games against Real Madrid are already on Munich’s minds, and Tuchel didn’t want to deny that. His farewell has been announced, and it should stay that way. Tuchel confirmed this once again in Berlin. He will not stay, no matter how difficult the search for a successor may be. On Friday, national coach Julian Nagelsmann, who was also courted in Munich, extended his contract with the German Football Association.

A lot of things are vague in Munich at the moment, so the 5-1 win was just the right thing to give us encouragement for the coming weeks. Things have never been as easy for FC Bayern in the Alte Försterei as they were that evening and 1. FC Union has been playing in the Bundesliga for five years now. In recent years, the Berliners have always been characterized by rebelliousness of Gallic proportions, but this time the Union was almost just lagging behind. It was certainly no surprise that FC Bayern had more of the ball, but that they could do whatever they wanted with it was certainly not a surprise.

Union’s bulwark only lasted for the first half hour, then Mathys Tel passed sharply into the center, Thomas Müller skilfully let it through and Leon Goretzka hammered the ball into the top corner of the goal. Harry Kane increased the score to 2-0 with a free kick before the break, which was tantamount to a preliminary decision.

Union had almost no dangerous shots on goal in the first half. This shouldn’t change for a long time in the second half. There was little progress going forward and there were signs of dissolution defensively. Bayern scored three goals between the 53rd and 66th minutes. Two of them were due to Thomas Müller, one to Mathys Tel. “That was a ten-minute blackout,” said Union coach Bjelica. Yorbe Vertessen at least scored a consolation goal in the final minute.

The Berliners have four games left to avoid the threat of relegation. They are not yet in a relegation zone, but Mainz can draw level on points with a win in Freiburg on Sunday, then Union would only be two points ahead of the relegation spot. “If there is anything positive, it is that a result like this sharpens the senses,” said Kevin Volland. But Berliners can no longer afford results like this in the next four weeks.
