“Tuchel will also be on the bench against Leipzig.”

Bayern Munich is officially in crisis. The German Football League champion also lost 3-2 to VfL Bochum in the German League on Sunday. This is the third defeat in a row for coach Thomas Tuchel's team. However, the coach received support from Bayern coach Christian Driessen: “Tuchel will also be on the bench against Leipzig,” and the match will be held next Saturday in Munich. Kevin Stoger had a goal and an assist for Bochum, and ÖFB striker Michael Gregoritsch saved Freiburg from a 3-3 draw against Frankfurt. Sasa Kalajdzic was injured in the Eintracht match.

Jamal Musiala had his first shot against an ailing Munich side, which had recently suffered defeats at Leverkusen (0:3) and at Lazio Roma (0:1) (14th place). But Bochum turned the match upside down before the end of the first half. Takuma Asano and Kevin Schlotterbeck headed home after a Stoeger corner kick to make it 2-1 to the Outsiders.

The second package within four days

In the second half, Dayot Upamecano received his second expulsion in four days. After receiving a direct red card on Wednesday against Lazio in the Champions League, the Frenchman was sent off this time with a traffic light card for repeated foul play. His second yellow foul also led to a penalty kick which Stoger converted to make it 3-1. After that, despite good chances, Bayern managed to score only one goal through Harry Kane.

Thomas Leitch's Bochum side improved to 11th place and are already nine points clear of the relegation zone. The Munich team, which had a terrible week, is eight points behind leaders Leverkusen. However, immediately after the defeat, CEO Jan Christian Driessen made a commitment to Tuchel, who was under intense pressure. Dressen said that the issue of changing the coach is not on the table. When asked if Tuchel would also be on the bench for the upcoming match against Leipzig, he replied: “Of course.”

Fears for Kalajdzic

There was also a lot of drama between Freiburg and Frankfurt. Kalajidic got there after eight minutes without any outside influence and was clutching his right knee. The 26-year-old was already suffering from a ruptured cruciate ligament in his left knee. Kalajidzic, who was able to enter the dressing room on his own, returned to the Frankfurt bench on crutches in the second half and was taken to hospital for a post-match examination. “There he will be examined in detail. We hope it won't be negative, but I can't promise that either,” Eintracht coach Dino Topmüller said.

Substitute Kalajdzic Ansgar Knauf scored two goals to give Eintracht a 2-1 (35th) and 3-2 (72nd) lead. But the away win was thwarted by Gregoric, who came on in the 77th minute and equalized with his header in the 89th minute. His header was decisively converted by Frankfurt's Makoto Hasebe.

The opportunity to win was lost

In the 98th minute, Tota almost blocked Gregoric's shot off the goal line, preventing the Styrian player from scoring a brace. “I'm happy that we still tied. In the end I can make it 4:3, I'm still upset about that at the moment,” Gregoric said in an interview with DAZN after the match.

Frankfurt ranks sixth with 33 points, while Freiburg ranks eighth with 29 points. The eventful match also had to be stopped when two remote-controlled planes were launched from the home team's fans shortly after the start of the second half and flew over the stadium. In addition, fans protested investment plans in the German Football League (DFL), throwing candy on the pitch. Then both teams had to go to the locker rooms. There was also a fan-related outage in Bochum.
