FC Bayern, Deutscher Meis7er!
FC Bayern earned its first competitive trophy of the 2017/18 season after beating Borussia Dortmund on a penalty shootout.
Borussia Dortmund 2-2 (pen. 4-5) FC Bayern München
Bouncing back from a loss-draw streak is Bayern Munich and its thrashing of Wolfsburg on Sunday (Manila time) with an impressive scoreline of 0-6 (Alaba, two from Lewandowski, Robben, Mueller and Kimmich).
For Asian fans like the Mia San Manila family, waking up to a 2-3 scoreline in favor of Borussia Dortmund leaves a bitter taste in the mouth for the rest of the day that no tapsilog and hot coffee can ever shut. Losing to the boys from North Rhine-Westphalia means that Bayern is only gunning for one silverware come June which is the Bundesliga. As of this writing, the Bavarians are eight points clear at the top of the table followed by Liepzig, Dortmund and Hoffenheim respectively.
How is it going, FC Bayern fans? Especially the Filipino and Philippine based Bayern fans?
After four years, here it is:
What a great start for the new Bayern boss, Carlo Ancelotti.
Here are the numbers from last Sunday’s match:
For the past three years, we are pretty much used to staggering possession ball game played by our lads so seeing the number at 45% and have won with a clear deficit of nil to two, this must be a breath of fresh air that we are familiar with — just like the air of childhood from a place where nostalgia thrives.
Direct approach to football. Counterattack.
Who is ready for the 2016-2017 season?
Going to the Allianz Arena if you are an opponent is a pleasurable, proud feeling as you will be playing against one of the strongest, consistent football clubs in the world. On the flip-side, in a spell-binding arena like this, a possibility of getting slaughtered awaits — defeat is imminent.
On one side, it is an absolute treat, a delight of great heights if you come here as a supporter.
What a week!
From an exhausting penalty shootout for a Pokal victory, a fun celebration in Munich to the signing of Bayern Academy alum Mats Hummels — welcome to the world of Die Roten!
