People are really quick to call out Bayern, and whilst it is true, that they are not the Bayern from last season, most of the people probably didn't see the game. Holstein Kiel quite literally played like a proper Champions League group stage team.

can we just give some credit to hostlon kiel who came back twice in this game

They will still win the bundesliga with the characters and mentality they have and Flick is a very smart coach. It's just a dip it had to happen eventually.

As a Psg fan, I think its just bad form. The machine needs some new gears, but they will be back just like how our season started not so good but we just won first trophy this season

Bayern fielded almost their first team, but kiel still had almost half the possession and played like a proper high level team. How 😂

DFB has nothing to do with Bundesliga their for they will benefit from being out
Never been this early...

Flick only has one tactic which is playing a high line and pressing high.
Bayern are still the favourites in my opinion to win the UCL. They will eventually win the league. It's just that they are facing a bad run of games. They will eventually pick up the form. We would be harsh on any team if we judge them just on the basis of one or two bad games.
and that's how we are lifting the ucl trophy as the defending champions with a bad defence in flick's style mark my words gear up for feb, haters

Imagine losing to a division two side 😂 I swear Sule is the German Maguire, but at least with the right partner Maguire does alright. Sule had Alaba and still couldn’t put in a half decent performance.
This is a dip in form... I would see them still winning the league... Their UCL hopes are definitely in JEOPARDY though

This is THE DFB POKAL. Magic of the pokal. All teams play form the 1st round unlike fa cup where the big teams start in the later stages

No big deal. Bayern will still win their league easily and smash everyone in the champions league. Its almost done and dusted in a way.

Bayern win: oh they play in farmers league
Bayern lose: oh they are the worst. Liverpool and Manchester City will destroy them.
(*le internet fans)
I was hoping that Bayern was using their 2nd team or something lol Their defence is horrible. Sell Sule period.

this better be a wake up call like last year but honestly idk lol

The same happened in 2001 and after that (maybe because of that) they won the champions league. So don’t panic xD

Bayern concede a lot of goals. They won't be able to outscore when the opposition defends well.
Fuerte Farmer
Fuerte Farmer:
That clearly shows that the board needs to start dishing out money ffs. You can’t buy cheap players or get players on loan and expect world class results. Spend a $70mil or more this winter on our defense.

And to those of you supporters from other leagues, enjoy and laugh while you can seeing Bayern play like this because once Bayern have the right mentality your team will be trashed.

Finally, f pokal, we have Bundesliga and CL to defend! Mia San Mia

We are so trash we might get knocked out of CWC and CL for sure the best defender we had was Lucas but he doesn’t compliment the high line a lot. Good fast defender and a great class RB we will be set
the only thing that is important is the CL, with this group of players there should be 2 more in the line; they should be happy about the more holidays

Never lost to a big club yet in over a year that’s pretty good
Atleast no one can blame Alaba, Lucas Hernandez played and they lost.. Lol

Let’s hope Bayern Munich continues to struggle I wanna see upemacano or haaland win the bundesliga

I saw second half, and after 2nd goal Bayern quits of the game. They played like a small team, wasting time.

Good times gone baby!!
This is huge.
They only removed lewa and alaba from their best 11 and they still lost to kiel they cant even come up with any excuses now😂
The big problem is a 6f5in tree rooted to the pitch playing everyone onside come on sule come on sule get off the pitch

Obviously, Jurgen knows nothing about English football if he thinks the FA cup is a big deal, maybe 25 years ago
Wasn't bayern game that day and also Neuer's worst game conceding 2 goals and not saving 1 pen (it's not his fault tho, don't go hard on him y'all)

Addo Densu:
Holstein Kiel really played well..kudos to them. They proved to us that with the right tactics, every team is beatable. This should be a message to all the other teams in the bundesliga, who give up when playing with Bayern. Play with your heart and attack, every team is beatable

Honestly Bayern Lost 2 Trophies unless we play the German SuperCup! Bundesliga and The Champions League is Bayern's main focus. They should have Subbed on Lewandowski
Badar Shaikh
Badar Shaikh:
Just a dip in performance and some non seriousness and all the teams we have destroyed are here to troll us saying that they have a chance against us. I'm not saying that the UCL will be easy for us this year or anything, but this match or the previous aren't the best ones to measure our capability.
RIP lampard welcome to Chelsea nagelsmann

let's be real....what cup is this?
Surely, it is time for commentators to stop calling Bayern "the top team in the world." They've been OK but NOT great all season, and for the last month or so they've been riding their luck while being fairly awful at times. Robert Lewandowski's goal scoring prowess had, until recently, distracted many from noticing the appalling defensive rot at Bayern.
I have yet to see proper comments in here... its all trolls vs Bayern fans. No objectivity from these bums.

Holstein Kiel (2. Bundesliga) played some very good football. You don't get 40% ball possession and 80% passing accuracy against Bayern for nothing, Kiel's calmness, vision, position play and technique on the ball was very good (not just for a 2nd ties side). Kiel are now 3. in the league, I hope they make the promotion, because they belong into the Bundesliga.
After the (undeserved) 2-1, Kiel were the better team, and finally punished Bayern, who so often this Bundesliga season get away with everything. This time there was no third lucky goal or 5 Manuel Neuer saves.
Had Kiel had more pace upfront, Bayern would have lost within the first 90 minutes, because apart from individual quality (which pace is a huge part of), Kiel were the better team.
Fact- bayern have lost more games this year than they did the whole last year and its onlu jan the 14☠️☠️

Just like Liverpool and city you cannot keep that kinda stupidly high standard every single season. This is football.
Hansi Flick blunder but I can't blame Hansi Flick he was robbed by the board. He asked for good players and they gave him. SARR, CHOUPA MOTING, COSTA. kept Boateng and then Sane, Gnabry other players form dropped. Is time to make players realize themselves.

As Said by a German to Me during Bayern's Clash with Real Madrid in Santiago Bernabeu . Once We Everything ? We Lose the Motivation . That was the time when Pep was Managing them & his words still seems true . He said the Problems isn't Pep but the players who doesn't feel like winning it & he said he has watched many games & player body languages before the win & after the win are opposite. They don't try that hard

„What has changed? What’s the problem to the side that was so dominant last season?“

It’s obvious isn’t it? The players are tired we’re playing an incredible amount of games in a comparatively short time , that goes for all big teams in europe. I thought we established this months ago?

The loss today has been a long time in the making and I hope it’s a wake up call for the team and Flick that things need to change. I get the point of the high line but it’s obviously not working and at this point he has to consider to sit deeper to avoid goals like the 1:1 we’ve seen so many times now

I remember when people were like Leeds are a horrible team when they lost to Crawley. Imagine what they think now. I bet they think Bayern will get relegated this year.

Davies is worse than TAA when it comes to defense, look at his positioning for the second goal, he has no clue.

Atletico, Real Madrid and PSG should be licking their lips at their chances of winning the CL with Bayern and Liverpool’s recent struggles. I wouldn’t even rule out Sevilla or Leipzig winning it this season
This Bayern team are not champions League favourites for me this season. A lot of people don't realise that thiago Alcantara was one of the most important players for them because he always give them possession, he can't be pressured to lose the ball, and teams keep chasing on the ball. When Barca were dominating their defence was not great but possession was the key for them.
Best team in the world by a long way according to Bundesliga fanboys lol. Bayern will not win the real Champions League in a real season. Notice in the news today Bayern president is trying to manipulate UEFA again to favour his team like he did with FFP, by wanted the Champions League to change format and being a month tournament every year, because that is the only way Bayern can win it when other countries that play more games are tired.
