His own judgment was merciless. Shortly after the 0:5-slap in the face in the top match against Bayern Munich Lucien Favre in the ZDF sports Studio had to explain what had made the Bavarians better than BVB. "Just the two fights, ne?", suggested the Moderator. Favre through panted and counted: "two fights, winning the Ball, anticipation and also technically." A list of defects that includes pretty much every important facet of the football . In short: "It's a teaching hour."

A lesson there in terms of Coaching. For Lucien Favre. So at least the German media. Because so much of the Swiss coach in January due to the sovereign lead as a semi-God, the criticism was presented, so very patters now, to him in. In fact, he had taken for the key game in Munich, some daring decisions. No help was, of course, that striker Paco was Alcacer due to an arm injury (again). But Favre's solution was something of a surprise: He introduced Marco Reus into the storm centre.
"That I don't give a shit," commented the visibly pissed-off Reus to the end of the game his Position. Although, no matter, it was not him but "has not Explained it to me, the Trainer. Everyone knows that I don't want to play on this Position." Why he had to do it yet? "You'll have to ask the coach." They did, of course, a duty-conscious journalist in Germany. "We wanted to have many runs in the depth," said Favre had to say: "we were not able to, unfortunately."
Made it better: Bavaria, here the 4:0.
Mario Gotze, who recently showed at the very front as a false Nine or attacking midfield, a strong performance, remained on the bench. On the Ten of the last hardly took account of Mahmoud Dahoud has played. Clear that this choice was questioned after such a disastrous result. How close genius and mistakes in football are to each other, but showed a 7. Minute. Would be Dahouds shot (after the presentation of the in depth run Reus) landed just a few inches further to the left, the Ball would be held into the goal to the pole, Dortmund 1:0 in the lead and Favre probably half-God.
So, but it means: "Favre vercoacht" (Eurosport, and Ruhr Nachrichten), or "Favre's tactics is fully in the pants" (see picture). The tabloid commented: "Ironically, in the giant summit of the mark is from the Swiss with his ideas completely." And the Süddeutsche Zeitung was: "He tried on Saturday to what all the opponents have made that were against Munich this season, no chance: He didn't think his team by their Strengths but by your weaknesses." The BVB coach is charged also that he had placed the 33-year-old Lukasz Piszczek after a two-month injury absence, back to the right. The only goal on this page was from a corner.
Therefore, did not want to take Favre then, but all the media beating: "After the game, it is easy to say that it is not good to do without Mario Götze. But I don't know if it would have been in the other System better." It was right to say after the game whether he would again set up the same. It was, however, to mention important to him: "We have conceded stupid goals, you have to see." He should in particular have the 2:0 meant, as a Central defender Dan-Axel Zagadou Robert Lewandowski plays the Ball in to the feet.
Or, the 3:0: Three times the Bavarians allowed within a shooting a few seconds until the Ball lands in the goal.
With all the doom and gloom Favre with the BVB remains in the master race. A point is Dortmund now behind the new Leader Bayern Munich. In addition, the Munich in the last two matches against RB Leipzig (3.) and Frankfurt (4.) ran. Therefore, Favre responds to dry, when he is asked whether he still believes in the title: "of Course." But: "If we perform like today, then it will be very difficult, that is clear" (daily Gazette.ch/Newsnet)
