Stand: 16.10.2020 | Reading time: 2 minutes
1. FC Düren does more than respectable in the cup at Bayern. Verbally too. The coach of the fifth division team found that there was more to it than the 0: 3 and complained about two referee’s whistles.
Hans-Dieter Flick got what he wanted. Even without a number of regular employees, FC Bayern Munich did the first step towards successfully defending its title in the DFB Cup against the fifth division soccer team 1. FC Düren with a 3-0 (2-0) win on Thursday evening. But not much more.
Düren demanded a lot more from Bayern than they had expected, as Flick had to admit: “Düren wanted to put us under pressure, he was cheeky,” said the coach. “It took us a bit to get into the game.” And Thomas Müller was amazed: “It didn’t look like a fifth division.”
The actors of the blatant outsider were then inspired accordingly. “It was an honor to play here,” said defender Mario Weber. And trainer Giuseppe Brunetto was “proud of the performance”. Despite the extremely respectable performance, he struggled with the result that there was more to it: “I think we deserved a goal.”
In detail, Brunetto meant two scenes from the first half. On the one hand, the 44th minute, when his team scored the 1: 2, but the goal was not given because of a foul on Jérôme Boateng.
Bayern’s penalty “relatively questionable”
Wrongly, as Brunetto found: “That was clearly not a foul. If we go into the break with the 1: 2, there will be some more energy. ”In addition, Brunetto described the penalty in the 36th minute, which Thomas Müller had used to make it 2-0 for Munich, as“ relatively questionable ”.
He was pulled out by the big winner of the evening on the Munich side: Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting. The 31-year-old attacker, who, in addition to the other last-minute commitments Bouna Sarr, Douglas Costa and Marc Roca, came back to Germany at the last minute from Munich Champions League final opponent Paris Saint-Germain, was the man of the Game.
“I’m happy about the two goals. It was a successful debut for me, ”commented Choupo-Moting, who is“ in the mood ”for his new job in Munich. Flick praised the robust but also strong attacker after the premiere, which was well worth seeing: “He has shown that he can score goals and that he can get penalties.”
Bayern will continue in the Bundesliga with Arminia Bielefeld on Saturday. Then the Munich first line-up should be on the lawn again, with Manuel Neuer instead of Alexander Nübel in goal or Lewandowski in the attack for Choupo-Moting.
