Bayern against Liverpool : The German football has to reinvent itself, again

Uli Hoeness had announced a sort of government Declaration, it was alleged the size of his club and the eighth to meet him and placed a low estimate, especially on the part of the national coach. But then the reality came, and met the President of FC Bayern just as hard as his kick. 1:3 in the return match against Liverpool, and according to the promise of full 0:0 three weeks ago in the first leg ... Himmelherrgottnoamoi-kruzefix Hallelujah-the sacrament!

So a K. o. in the first knockout round of the Champions League at odds with the Munich-based claim to think, such as the CSU, with the speed limit. So the government was the Declaration and Hoeness spoke late Wednesday evening: "I say only one sentence: Liverpool deserved to win."

That was the smallest common denominator of all means and at prices that are directly Involved, from goalkeeper Manuel Neuer through to the coach Niko Kovac, who was also to later hour not tired, the class of the opponent. With each Eulogy, the Munich disappointment settled a bit further into perspective, because who leaves against a so strong team that can't even be so weak.

That is a nice thought and makes the truth, but only to a limited extent. Liverpool FC plays this year in a rather modest Form. He had lost to the first knockout round in the Champions League away games this season and in the past few weeks in the Premier League such a big lead over Manchester City playful have caught up, as the Bavaria in the same period of time against Borussia Dortmund. In Munich, the English lay just a average first half and in the second, very much better, there was some camera shake. It was the individual brilliance of Virgil van Dijk, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Maneh, which decided the game.

Since Bayern were behind, it was running out of them, neither on the pitch nor on the bench. Who needs ten minutes before the break, two goals and a lovable kind of clumsy Portuguese Renato Sanches on the square, you can't complain about pity. The truth is that the Liverpool FC showed a stable idea, and yet never to its limits had to go. For Bayern Munich was simply not good enough.

It adds seamlessly to the world Cup-a Disaster

That says enough about the level of German club football, especially in comparison with the Premier League, which has been made in this country in the past few years, a little funny. Because: So much money, and no one knows how to handle it. According to the three-sided German-English duels in the first knockout round of the Champions League, no one is laughing any more. Fits nicely in the Disaster at the world Cup last year, and the subsequent failure in the Nations League. Now the League has brought through for the first time since 2006, no club in the quarter-finals of the most important club competition in the world.
