Biggest bankruptcy in four years: FC Bayern Munich goes down horribly in Frankfurt

Biggest bankruptcy in four years
FC Bayern Munich goes down terribly in Frankfurt

FC Bayern Munich loses 1:5 at Eintracht Frankfurt and thus suffers their first Bundesliga defeat of the season – and the biggest in over four years.

FC Bayern Munich received a big slap on the 14th matchday of the Bundesliga. At Eintracht Frankfurt, the record champions lost 1:5 (1:3) after a catastrophic performance. It is Bayern’s biggest defeat under coach Thomas Tuchel. Omar Marmoush (12th), Eric Dina-Ebimbe (31st, 50th), Hugo Larsson (36th) and Ansgar Knauff (60th) scored for Frankfurt, Joshua Kimmich for Bayern (44th).

After four competitive defeats in a row, the strong SGE stopped the downward trend. Bayern’s last competitive game was ten days ago. After the Union game was canceled, it was important to “maintain tension,” said Tuchel: “We didn’t want anyone to fall asleep.” And yet Bayern seemed anything but alert in the early stages. The record champions made a number of mistakes, acted far too slowly – and were immediately punished by Frankfurt’s furious start.

“One more goes in”

Marmoush scored after Fares Chaibi hit the crossbar, and FCB defender Noussair Mazraoui looked extremely bad. In the middle of the first half, the Munich team calmed down the game for a short time and finished it off with goal scorer Harry Kane (25th). After that, however, Bayern literally fell apart. The defense was completely overwhelmed, even goalkeeper Manuel Neuer was unhappy.

First Dina Ebimbe poked the ball past Neuer into the goal, then Dayot Upamecano let the young Swede Larsson outdance him for Eintracht’s third goal. Thanks to Kimmich’s flick into the corner, Munich at least stayed in the game at halftime. Tuchel made a substitution and brought on Konrad Laimer and Raphael Guerreiro – but nothing changed at first. Instead, Upamecano misused the ball and Dina Ebimbe completed the next perfect counterattack. Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting missed the chance to connect (55th).

Tuchel sat on the bench and hid under his hood when Knauff’s goal was awarded according to video evidence. Thomas Müller came into the game, Jamal Musiala celebrated his comeback after an injury break – but Eintracht remained in control. The SGE fans sang: “One more goes in.” The 1:5 is the record champions’ worst defeat since November 2019: they also lost 1:5. At Eintracht Frankfurt.
