Bremer SV celebrates cup clap
FC Bayern wins as clearly as not since 1997
With a little delay, FC Bayern is in the 2nd round of the DFB Cup. The rescheduled game at the fifth division Bremer SV is ultimately a better training session for the Munich team. The result is clear early on, and after a red card it even goes into double digits.
Shooting festival for Julian Nagelsmann’s cup premiere: Bayern Munich reached the second round of the DFB Cup “in detention” and gave Julian Nagelsmann a perfect cup debut at Bayern with the highest win in 24 years. The 20-time cup champion didn’t give the fifth division club Bremer SV the slightest chance at 12-0 (5-0) in the Weserstadion, even with a better B-team. The Munich team only achieved a higher victory in the cup in 1997, when they also won the first round 16-1 at DJK Waldberg.
“It was already clear that we had to and will win the game. But the way we did it was important,” said Nagelsmann with satisfaction at the Sport1 microphone. Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting (8th, 28th, 35th, 82nd), Jamal Musiala (16th, 48th), Malik Tillman (47th), Leroy Sané (65th), Michael Cuisance (81st), Bouna Sarr (86.) and Corentin Tolisso (88.) scored for Munich. In addition, Jan-Luca Warm (27.) from Bremen underwent an own goal. In the final phase, the amateurs from the league played only ten after a red card against Ugo Nobile (76th).
“It was fun to score goals and get into the rhythm,” said international Musiala on Sky. Choupo-Moting said: “Every game is important. It was a compulsory task, but we worked from the first to the last minute, that’s why the game turned out that way.”
Who the FCB will meet in the second round (October 26th / 27th) will be decided by the draw on Sunday in the ARD sports show. But the eyes of the Bayern bosses first go to Istanbul, where the preliminary round for Nagelsmann’s handle pot mission in the Champions League will be drawn on Thursday (6 p.m.). “As FC Bayern we aim for the highest goals year after year, both nationally and internationally,” said President Herbert Hainer.
In any case, the first step has been taken in the DFB Cup. From the first second, the game resembled a relaxed evening stroll, which was only clouded a little by the north German drizzle and renewed whistles against Sané. The game was originally supposed to take place two and a half weeks ago, but had to be postponed due to several corona cases in the fifth division team and the resulting quarantine orders.
Bremer SV still enjoys the big stage
Nagelsmann used his cup debut as Bayern coach as announced for “load management”. Six new players came up in comparison to the 3-2 victory in the league against 1. FC Köln. National players Serge Gnabry, Dayot Upamecano and Alphonso Davies initially took their places on the bench, while captain Manuel Neuer, world footballers Robert Lewandowski and Leon Goretzka even stayed at home and were invited for the Bundesliga home game on Saturday (6.30 p.m. / Sky and in the live ticker on ntv .de) spared against Hertha BSC.
Of course, that didn’t cause any problems on Wednesday evening. Memories of the cup fiasco in January, when the Munich team surprisingly ended up in the second round against second division Holstein Kiel, never came up. Another failure against an amateur club as last 27 years ago (0: 1 against Vestenbergsgreuth) was never an issue.
The Bremer did not let the mood of the bitter bankruptcy in their “century game” take. The BSV fans among the 10,093 spectators cheered their team on again and again with chants, and coach Benjamin Eta’s team visibly enjoyed the unique trip to the big stage. For them it is now back to the everyday life of the Oberliga Bremen, in the coming week it will be Leher TS instead of FC Bayern.
