“That was a very, very good performance and a very deserved win“, said the Mainz coach Bo Svensson. His opponent Julian Nagelsmann was served after the bankruptcy. “It’s too many defeats, too many in the same way. I think that we always need a certain basic passion in the game. We didn’t have that today“said the Bayern coach.

Munich far from its master form from the start
After the tenth championship title in a row, Nagelsmann made his announcement that he would now give several players from the second row a chance come true. With Sven Ulreich, Niklas Süle, Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting and Marcel Sabitzer, there were players in the starting XI who had hardly or not at all been part of the squad in the past few weeks.
The changes and the lost sporting appeal were noticeable in Bayern. Mainz dominated the game, but initially had bad luck that Burkardt (2nd minute) and Robin Hack (11th) only hit the crossbar. However, Burkardt used his second big chance to make it 1-0 (18 ‘) after Ulreich had clarified too briefly and was then also tunnelled by the U21 national player.
And it got even worse for Munich. After a free-kick cross, Anton Stach headed towards the far post, where Niakhaté was able to easily slot in from two meters to make it 2-0 for the hosts (27th).
