Already fallen in Leverkusen (3-0) then in Rome against Lazio (1-0), Bayern Munich once again fell in the league in Bochum (3-2). The crisis continues in Bavaria.

Bayern Munich plunged into a historic crisis, conceding a third consecutive defeat on Sunday 3-2 in Bochum, at the end of a Bundesliga meeting still interrupted for a long time by protests German fans.

This new setback – after the 3-0 slap suffered at Leverkusen and the 1-0 against Lazio in the Champions League – slides the Bavarians to eight points behind the leader, Bayer Leverkusen, and places the lead even further neur Thomas Tuchel on an ejection seat.

Bayern finished with ten men after the exclusion of French international defender Dayot Upamecano, who caused a penalty and received a red card, like Wednesday in Rome. The reigning champions had opened the scoring through Jamal Musiala in the 14th minute, but they conceded two goals before the break, against by the Japanese Takuma Asana (37th) and on a header from a corner by Keven Schlotterbeck (44th).

After a foul in the area during an aerial duel, Upamecano received a second warning, synonymous with exclusion. Kevin Stöger converted the penalty for Bochum (3-1, 78th).

Harry Kane, alone at six meters and ideally served by the young Frenchman Mathys Tel, reduced the gap in the 87th minute (3-2). But after a high-intensity end to the match where Manuel Neuer once again saved Bayern, Bochum logically won in front of its burning audience.

The game was interrupted twice, in the first and then in the second period, for long minutes, by tennis balls and other objects being thrown from the stands.

German supporters had already disrupted all the other matches of this 22nd day, with the exception of the Heidenheim-Leverkusen match. They are protesting against the arrival of private investors in the capital of the German Football League (DFB) and, more generally, against what they consider to be excessive commercialization of football German.
