Nagelsmann’s Bayern Munich fall for the first time this season

by archysport

The Bavarian club are no longer invincible this season, having been surprised at home by the Eintracht Frankfurt of a great Kevin Trapp.

After nine consecutive victories in all competitions, Bayern bit the dust Sunday at home in the German Championship, beaten (1-2) by Frankfurt, the first defeat of new coach Julian Nagelsmann since taking office this summer. Despite this mishap, the reigning champion will most likely remain in the lead on Sunday evening after this 7th day. Dortmund and Freiburg are at one point, and Leverkusen, who can come back to equality in the event of a victory in the evening at Bielefeld (7:30 p.m.), is eight points behind on goal difference. Martin Hinteregger (32nd) and Filip Kostic (83rd) achieved the goals of the feat, after the opener for Munich by Leon Goretzka (29th). But the man of the match on the Frankfurt side is undoubtedly goalkeeper Kevin Trapp, the former Paris SG goalkeeper, who put out several spectacular saves to keep his team in the match for almost an hour, before the winning goal.

Frankfurt had yet to win a single game this season in the Bundesliga, with five draws and one loss. Bayern, on the other hand, had won their last nine matches in all competitions, scoring a total of 45 goals, averaging five per game. But Trapp was in a state of grace. Sané in one against one (31st), Lewandowski’s head within six meters (56th), missiles from Gnabry (64th) then from Sané (65th): nothing happened. “It was tough, but we defended well, played well, and we also had a little luck“, Welcomed the hero of the day. “Hats off to the whole team, we played against a Bayern Munich who is currently in great shape, we could wonder how many goals we were going to concede, but we made the most of what was possible against such an opponent.“. Trapp only gave in once, in the 29th minute, when Goretzka set up a blockade from 16 meters, concluding an action he himself had initiated with an interception in midfield ( 1-0).

We are disappointed, this is a match that should never be lost.

But the Rekordmeister squandered his advantage three minutes later, conceding his first goal of the season from a set piece. A classic football school pattern: corner and header to six meters from Martin Hinteregger, who rose higher than Bavarian central defender Dayot Upamecano (1-1, 32nd). After this thunderclap in the Allianz Arena, half filled (25,000 authorized supporters), Bayern dominated in vain, and even exposed themselves to cons. On a new lost ball from Upamecano, in a very bad evening, Filip Kostic placed an angle shot on which Neuer could not do anything. There was then 7 minutes left in regulation time, insufficient for Bayern to catch up. “We are disappointed, this is a match that should never be lost“, Acknowledged Thomas Müller,”we had a lot of chances and we missed the decisive centimeter. Frankfurt scores on their first action, and with the few chances they have, they score twice.»
