Open war at Bayern Munich


By: Manu Tournoux

Bayern Munich coach Thomas Tuchel criticized his team’s first half performance against Freiburg, who sacrificed two valuable points in the 2-2 draw.

The German champions conceded a late goal, losing points in the title race. The general performance of the Bavarians is hardly satisfactory. The first 30 minutes saw Freiburg take the lead before Mathys Tel and Jamal Musiala gave Bayern the lead, before Lucas Holer broke Munich’s hearts in the 87th minute.

Tuchel criticized his team’s first half performance, telling ESPN: “A terrible half hour from us. The 10-15 minutes of the first half were not more than adequate. The second half was good, with big chances, good spirit, much better discipline and much better quality overall. We could have won, but we didn’t defend the throw-in (for Freiburg’s equalizer) as we needed to to come away with a victory. Overall we can say that the first half was not enough to deserve the victory. »

A mediocre performance

After another mediocre performance from Bayern, Tuchel regretted the missed opportunities and the poor defense that haunted his team all season. Bayern tended to lose their lead and capitulate – something undefeated Leverkusen avoided – which, in part, cost Tuchel his job at the end of the season.

Tuchel and his Bayern players will be sweating it out in Leverkusen’s match against Cologne tomorrow, as Xabi Alonso’s side can now grab the top spot. If Leverkusen wins, Bayern will have to regain 10 points in as many matches to win the title.
