At least Eintracht is still playing in Europe. They beat Inter Milan today 1-0.
‘No plan, no courage’ – German press lays into Bayern after Liverpool loss
So did ESPN. Summary: Kovac tries to play "Hercules" soccer like he did at Frankfurt. Get it to the wings and they try to beat their opponent. Works in the Bundesliga most of the time. But Bayern is a team full of 7/10 players now, and that doesn't work against top flight UCL teams like Liverpool who are full of 9/10 players. Kovac can't compensate tactically to work them to play forward as a group. Partially him, mostly the roster he has been provided. Rafinha and James threw it backwards at every hint of trouble. Maybe at this point only Kimmich could be considered a 9/10 player worthy of Liverpool. End of an era they said and was good Klopp exposed them just as he did in 2011 at Dortmund. They learned their lesson then , will they now?
Good. Would be great if they could win it and get in the UCL next year, because won't get in through Bundesliga probably. I think Chelsea will win Europa for some reason.
I think Chelsea will also win.
The part in the blurb about kicking the ball back is spot on. No forward play at all other than near the end of the first half.
On another note, Shane on Neuer being caught out like he was.
Rafinha was struggling on the play to handle Mane, but Neuer comes out like a buffoon, and then it seems Rafinha backs off as did Sule..but it was too late when Mane goes around Neuer...Sule and Rafinha are left in no man's land to try to make a save themselves. What a mistake. If Neuer stays in net, Rafinha might done enough to hamper Mane's shot. We'll never know though.
Awesome Sancho to Reus goal in stoppage time against Berlin. Was a good match.
Wow, two Hertha players dismissed.
Damn was hoping that would end in a tie.
Getting a little early action in before the Reds game.
Leverkusan v Bremen
Looking for 4 goals, 3 pay out though.
Leverkusen laid an egg today. Was 4 goals.
Alphonso Davis got a lot of time today. Looked really good. Much more active offensively than Rafinha when he came in. Played left back initially then over to right wing. Worked well with Kimmich. Scored his first goal. Youngest player to score a goal for Bayern since 1999 and first player born this century to get one and first Canadien to get a Bayern goal.
Got the full freight. I’ll take it.
