Bayern coach Niko Kovac set up a 1: 1 draw at Nuremberg to win the championship title. Sports director Hasan Salihamidzic has lost in the classic "killer mentality" of Bavaria. Nuremberg coach Boris Schommers is "proud" of his team.
Niko Kovac was very upset with FC Bayern's lack of play in the duel with Borussia Dortmund. The happy and at the end as dramatic as crazy 1: 1 (0: 0) in the derby in the desperate against relegation fought 1. FC Nuremberg was not the income that Munich had imagined.
Instead of four points, the championship lead rose to just two points against BVB, who beat the BVB against Schalke the day before. And so Kovac did this title extrapolation on Sunday night: "The bill is relatively simple, you do not need to have a higher math, we have to score seven points if the BVB picks up everything in the last three games."
In the turbulent season it is possible
Bayern, who are clearly ahead of the BVB on goal difference, have yet to compete against Hannover in Leipzig and at home against Frankfurt. Dortmund's retirement program is at Bremen, at home against Dusseldorf and at Mönchengladbach.
Even if the advantage is at Bayern, many things still seem possible in this turbulent season. "It has been seen that there are crazy results in recent weeks – and probably in the next three days too," Kovac said.
Especially because his team remains unpredictable. All expected that the surprising Dortmund 2: 4 against Schalke would give a boost to the stars of Bayern to lead to a preliminary decision in Nuremberg. Far from it.
Sports director Hasan Salihamidzic lost the "killing mentality" and severely criticized the exuberant appearance in front of 50,000 spectators at the Max Morlock Stadium.
Boris Schommers is "proud" of his team
"We never played our game, we did not have freshness, we had no future action, we were satisfied," Salihamidzic complained. The "steep model" of the unused BVB was "boring and disappointing".
Nuremberg coach Boris Schommers was "proud" of his side, who "played 90 minutes on equal terms" with Bayern. The "Club" had twice the sensational success in mind.
Once after the 1: 0 by Matheus Pereira (48 minutes), who was able to make up for Serge Gnabry of Bayern (75). And on the penalty shootout, Tim Leibold threw the inside post.
Bayern would be complete if Kingsley Coman had managed in the last attack of the game to run in front of the excellent goalkeeper of FCN, Christian Mathenia, winner of the race in Munich. "But we do not deserve that today," said quarterback Mats Hummels: "That was not the level we expect from us." (Ff / DPA)
