FC Bayern lost their third game in a row at VfL Bochum. The championship already seems to be gone, coach Thomas Tuchel then talks about “Murphy’s Law” and gets support. That’s surprising. Because there’s not much going for him anymore.

Thomas Tuchel didn’t hide. When the final whistle blew in Bochum and FC Bayern had also lost this game, this time 2:3 (1:2), he did not flee into the dressing room. The coach went onto the pitch in the Bochum rain with his scarf pulled up, congratulated his opponents and high-fived his players.

For the last time? That is the big question that is now in the room.

Shortly before the game, Tuchel had said on DAZN that the week after the defeats at Bayer Leverkusen and Lazio Rome had been “absolutely modest”: “Overall, the mood is more like we were in a relegation place.” After the game they finally seem to be in a relegation zone.

Now Tuchel also presented himself. He seemed tidy. “The defeat today wasn’t fair, a lot went against us,” he analyzed: “We completely dominated and had four, five, six top-class chances. I feel the defeat differently than the last two. Today was a bit of Murphy’s Law: Anything that could go wrong did go wrong. It wasn’t supposed to be today.”

The team performed differently than last: “We never stopped believing in it and trying. If we play the same game again, we have a high probability of winning it.”

Tuchel now has more defeats than Nagelsmann

Does Tuchel still believe in the championship? “I don’t think that’s that realistic right now,” he said honestly, but recalled the last-minute title from the previous season: “But we’ll keep it going. We have to find the right track for this.”

Are he and his coaching team still the right people for this? Tuchel: “You’re asking me. If you ask me, I’ll say yes.” Apparently the club boss sees it the same way. Bayern’s CEO Jan-Christian Dreesen replied “of course” when asked whether Tuchel would also be on the bench in the next game on Saturday against RB Leipzig.

This is a bonus for the trainer, who was only hired eleven months ago and who has many numbers against him:

Bayern are now eight points behind undefeated league leaders Bayer Leverkusen – no team has ever made up such a big gap at such a late point in the season. Bayern lost three competitive games in a row for the first time in almost nine years; The last time this happened was in May 2015 under Pep Guardiola. At that time, as the established champions, there were two meaningless Bundesliga games. Bayern have lost more times in 44 competitive games under Thomas Tuchel (eleven times) than in 84 competitive games under Julian Nagelsmann (ten times).
