Munich (AFP) – Bayern Munich suffered their first defeat under coach Julian Nagelsmann. After nine successful competitive matches under their new coach, Munich lost 1:2 (1:1) to Eintracht Frankfurt in the Bundesliga at home on Sunday. Only Leon Goretzka managed to beat guest of honor Kevin Trapp (29th minute). Martin Hinterger (32) penalized a defensive error in Munich almost immediately with the equaliser. Philip Kostik (83) informed the visitors of their first league win of the season under coach Oliver Glasner and their first success in Munich in 21 years.
After four days of a 5-0 Champions League goal feast against Dynamo Kiev, Munich did not start as usual after a very lively start this time in front of 25,000 spectators at the Allianz Arena. This was not only due to Trapp, who is not part of the current DFB lineup, but also because of their quadruple and defensive negligence. After a 1-1 draw at the start of the season in Gladbach, it was the first real handicap in Nagelsmann’s still young tenure.
His highly variable offensive stars initially presented major difficulties for the five-man guest series. However, Bayern’s early attack lacked precision and determination to beat Trapp often.
At 0:1 via Goretzka’s first goal of the season, Trapp was poor. Serge Gnabry had put Hinterger under intense pressure, having lost the ball to Goretzka, and the ball was returned to Goretzka through Thomas Muller and Robert Lewandowski, who finished off a deliberate direct shot. A minute later, it would have been 2-0 if Leroy Sane crossed through Gnabry. Sunny tried it alone from a good location – and it failed in dirt.
