FC Bayern Suffers Bitter Defeat to Heidenheim: Can They Turn It Around Against Arsenal?

FC Bayern suffered another bitter defeat on Saturday afternoon at newly promoted Heidenheim (2:3). Many Munich stars had their nerves on edge during the game. Goalkeeper Sven Ulreich also had a miss.

The FC Bayern players probably had to pinch themselves several times in the Heidenheim Voith Arena. Because after a 2-0 half-time lead for the record champions, it was suddenly 2-3 in the final phase.

Although Thomas Tuchel’s team threw everything forward in the last few minutes, the equalizer was no longer possible. In order to prevent the fifth defeat of the second half of the season, goalkeeper Sven Ulreich even resorted to questionable methods.

The keeper quickly got the ball for a goal kick in added time. Since no equipment was thrown to him, the Bayern goalkeeper jumped over the boards and knocked someone over. According to “Sport1” it was said to have been a ball boy.

The teenager staggered and had to support himself on the boards. The incident could also be seen at the edge of the screen during the TV broadcast. It is still unclear whether the approach will have any consequences.

Does FC Bayern show a different face against Arsenal?

Ulreich once again represented the injured captain Manuel Neuer in Heidenheim. Despite the quick goal kick, FC Bayern were unable to score again.

Harry Kane, Mathys Tel and winter newcomer Bryan Zaragoza made dangerous shots in the final phase, but Heidenheim keeper Kevin Müller repeatedly grabbed the ball safely.

In Munich, helplessness spread after the second league defeat in a row. After the final whistle, Thomas Tuchel struggled to find explanations on the “Sky” microphone.

The coach will probably continue to sit on the bench in the quarter-final first leg of the Champions League against Arsenal FC on Tuesday. Tuchel didn’t have a plan on Saturday to brighten the mood until then.

“We’re now in the Heidenheim fan curve. And I’m supposed to find a positive impulse now? It’s ten minutes after the final whistle!” said the coach in a rage on “Sky”.
