it was Agreed with FC Bayern München after the 1:0 victory over RB Leipzig is really only about one thing: the importance of these three points. Finally, Borussia Dortmund had lost the day before, surprisingly, in Düsseldorf. “It was brutally important, even if it was the most beautiful game,” said Joshua Kimmich, he even spoke of a “botch-up kick”, but I had still the better of the chances.

Without the parades of Leipzig’s goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi against Robert Lewandowski (24.) and him self (79.) could have been the winning actually higher. And without the winning goal of Franck Ribéry changed shortly before the conclusion of the (83.) he had, according to his assigned huge opportunity are probably “a bitter night,” said Kimmich.

While he mused thus, a cheerful three-view of the players behind the Advertising banner over, and called over: “We’re back dahaaa!” It’s Thomas Muller who found that the game “was a sign that there is with us again”.

But first, the distance to Dortmund is only from nine to six points shrunk. Secondly, the Bavaria in front of the Hinrunden-final on Saturday evening in Frankfurt again personnel problems.

Boateng was not even in the squad

Renato Sanches was put in overtime after the Red card for Stefan Ilsanker with Yellow-Red from the square, because he had pushed the Austrians. Serge Gnabry was limping after half an hour from the place, after the game, his gait looked round, and he is not happy. Kimmich and Müller also reported that the only just convalescent Kingsley Coman have problems and therefore replaced.

The Munich-based wing of pliers was just back in your younger, and Yes, slightly faster Version in the square, as they fell back apart. In addition, Jérôme Boateng on Wednesday, not even in the squad. Before the game, it was in the Sky, the national players have a pinched nerve. After the game, coach Niko Kovac said that Boateng got in the way as Gnabry, adductor problems. And the come in this Season with the greasy floors quite times.

Alone, given the chronic injury problems it would be only understandable if Bayern after the Opening of the transfer window on 1. January. After the Repair of three points on the top tab of the next Signal from Munich would be to the competition then it is a classical, If it is not running quite as well, one picks up a little deeper in the wallet. We are here again.

In the case of Hernandez-Transfer in the consideration phase

It’s just a coincidence, but a meeting is, of course, that the message of Boateng were default formatted to coincide with a rumor collided, the Bayern after the game, relatively, but not demented: Lucas Hernandez from Atlético Madrid, as it is reported by the Spanish sports newspaper “Marca”, to switch in the Winter to Munich. It would be with a spread of 80 to 85 million euros, a record Transfer in the Bundesliga.

of Bavaria, Chairman of the Board Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said, it was in the “consideration phase” of whether to strike a blow in January on the transfer market. Sports Director Hasan Salihamdizic had a different view on things. You will try in the Winter “what,” he wanted to say, conversely, nothing Concrete to individual players.


The 22-year-old world champion Hernandez is a defensive player who can play in the chain both inside and to the left. Although Rummenigge denied that Mats Hummels will leave in the Winter, the Association, as the tabloid media had speculated. Nevertheless, the Bavarians have in defence, currently the greater need. Boateng was known to leave in the summer, willing, Munich. Because at the same time the rumors of Benjamin Pavard not tear off, could be a plausible Plan of Bavaria: Two world Champions of 2014 in the medium term, be replaced by two significantly younger world champion by 2018.

Werner could. the attack rejuvenate

And then, a Leipzig striker was on Wednesday evening to showcase, after the game, even more so than with the performance on the court Timo Werner is not told in the television, Radio and the press, that you’ll come on FC Bayern, if you leave RB Leipzig in Germany wanted to stay. In the coming months, the 22-Year-old, wool runs his contract until 2020, about his next career step decide.

all listened, as if in the summer, a change on the horizon. Most likely to Bayern. Werner can also play as a winger, he would thus be a further guarantee of the desired tempo football, if Arjen Robben will be safe and Franck Ribéry stop pretty sure after the season. He would also be a legitimate heir of the almost eight years older than Lewandowski in the storm center.

Some of what was heard on Wednesday at FC Bayern, disagreed. A rail but after that, sure: The club is working on the big break. And he’s progressed quite far.
