Bayern Munich did not need their great star to leave what would be their ninth consecutive Bundesliga practically sentenced. Without the injured Lewandowski (the killer Polish will also miss the Champions League quarter-finals against PSG), the all-time champion He beat a Leipzig without gunpowder by the minimum thanks to a goal from Goretzka and cruises back to the salad bowl. With seven days to go, the team led by Hansi Flick extended the difference to seven points with respect to Leipzig in second position in the table and it already seems inevitable that he will not defend the title again. Nobody can with this Bayern in Germany for a long time. Except for surprise, this season they will not take the throne from him either.
Leipzig had controlled the game from the beginning. It was the most active team, they fought for possession at Bayern, yes, without reaching too clearly the framework protected by Neuer. More of the same on the opposite side, where the champion missed the presence of Lewandowski in attack, long-term loss due to a knee injury. The script of the great Bundesliga game did not change until after half an hour, the moment in which the incomparable quality appeared in the Bavarian medullary. Kimmich saw Müller in depth, the Munich myth served Goretzka on a platter and the former Schalke shot Gulacsi. Pure footprint.
The goal was a jug of cold water that woke up the locals even more. Nagelsmann didn’t think about it. Joined Kluivert for Forsberg to harass the Munich rear and the gamble worked. In just five minutes, the team sponsored by Red Bull He had three very clear to tie the match. Nkunku, Sabitzer and Dani Olmo, a starter after his goals with the national team, were on the verge of putting Leipzig back into the game that portrayed the fragile Munich rear at the beginning of the second half. Sorloth and Poulsen entered. More wood for a Saxon attack that continues to pay dearly for its inefficiency in front of the door. The leather did not enter. Bayern resisted. And again, he strokes the salad bowl again.
