The garment of the game: phase of the way was the first game of the Bundesliga round entertaining. However, these phases were relatively short. The Twitter remained a sphere of sufficient time, about other things to share. A very popular topic in the voluminous scarf of the Bayern-Coach, Niko Kovac. First World Problem.

result: scarf, Scarf – Bayern have won at TSG Hoffenheim 3:1 (2:0). Click here for the message.


The man of the first half: Leon Goretzka. The Ex-Schalke took advantage of his freedoms as a Central attacking midfielder in Kovac’s 4-2-3-1 to four degrees and two goals. First, he hit from a tight angle, had a stroke of luck that Kevin Vogt effort his shot is untenable (34. Minute). Then he closed a counter to Hoffenheim corner with a see values directly decrease (45.+1). For Goretzka, brought before the interval, almost 95 per cent of his passes to teammates, it was a historical performance.

first half: was so one-sided as a Best-Of-Bavaria-DVD. The Munich had significantly more possession of the ball, and came on average every three minutes for completion. Robert Lewandowski (10.), Thomas Müller (19.) and Mats Hummels (28.) awarded the best chances before Goretzka and his two goals ensured a well-deserved interval lead. Everything you need to know for the performance of the TSG in the first 45 minutes: goalkeeper Oliver Baumann had most of the ball actions of his team (36).

second half: Was the opposite of the first, offered an entertaining and varied football. Julian nail man responded in his 100. Bundesliga game as a coach on the weak notion and switched from 3-5-2 to 4-3-3. This had an effect. Suddenly, the TSG participated in the game and acquired decent opportunities through Leonardo Bittencourt (48.) and Joelinton (53.) the values of connection hit by Nico Schulz (59).. Five minutes before the break, Adam Szalai would have provided almost for the balance, but Manuel Neuer reacted strongly (85.). Shortly after Lewandowski hit after being played in by Müller’s decision (87.).

He müllert, and müllert, and müllert, also in the Lying

The eternal Müller: Before the kickoff, Kovac drew the displeasure of the Fans, not with fashion, but with the lineup. James Rodríguez, the plays according to the Coach, “its the future”, got no Chance of doing so. Instead, Müller, from the start, was allowed to take. That alone would have made the Hashtag #KovacOut on Twitter almost trends.

to justify In the first half, Müller did little for his nomination. He was much in the movement, and also had a couple of scenes that deserve the predicate “typical gemüllert”. But that hasn’t been occupied for a long purely positive.

changed – at Least in front of the 3:1 Müller-shone, however, only thanks to a great Anspiels of James. The future remains as open as the question of why Kovac responded so late to the party on the hope Heimer changes. James came in the 78th minute. Minute – 19 minutes after the first goal of the TSG, which would have turned the game almost.

looking ahead: with the victory, the Bavarians have to reduce the deficit to League leaders Borussia Dortmund, at least for a night, to three points. If BVB wants to restore the old distance, to win the Team of Lucien Favre in Leipzig (Saturday, 18.30 clock, live Ticker SPIEGEL ONLINE).
