Master decision postponed!
Bayern messed up the first match ball miserably, swimming 1: 2 at relegation candidate Mainz after a bloodless appearance. A win would have secured the ninth title in a row ahead of schedule.
But: Despite the bankruptcy, Bayern can still get the bowl on this match day. If Leipzig loses to Stuttgart on Sunday, RB can no longer make up the ten points deficit on the last three match days – Bayern would be couch champions. For all other results, Munich have to deliver again on the next match day.
Because nothing works in Mainz! The basement club literally played the record champions against the wall at the beginning of the first half.
3rd minute: Neuer boxing a central 16-meter blast from Burkardt himself into the goal. 1: 0 Mainz! Goalkeeper mistake!
37th Minute: Quaison heads a Mwene free kick into the Bayern goal. 2: 0!
And with that the Bavarians are still well served! The record champions are uncoordinated and completely off the roll, Latza (10th / head) and Da Costa (18th / deflected shot) hit the post twice. In the second half, Mainz then manages with passionate effort to manage the result against the unimaginative Munich.
Lewandowski’s goal (90 + 3) comes too late. After all, the Pole, who is back on the field for the first time after his knee injury, is still on the hunt for the Müller record (40 goals), and now has 36 goals on the account.
Bavaria has to wait for the 31st championship – while the Mainz fairy tale continues!
Sensational: After the first half of the season, the FSV had as many points as Schalke (seven) and eight points behind in 16th place – now the team is with an unbelievable 34 points and five points BEFORE the relegation place. Rescue is within your grasp!
