Thomas Müller came up with a Smile from the cabin. His good mood was not only recognizable, she was also clearly audible. “We are again dahaaa! We are back dahaaa!“, in addition he called on the way out of the stadium, but before he was gone, he made a remote diagnosis to Borussia Dortmund: “of Course, this doesn’t feel good when you lose and the opponent scores points.”

Bundesliga round DISPLAY

For Bayern Munich, in turn, the 1:0 (0:0) felt against RB Leipzig damn good. Only the cheers for the late winning goal from substitute Franck Ribery (83.), later, the jubilation after the final whistle – both times was not to be overlooked, how great the relief was in Munich, also in the case of their chief: “The Christ child has meant it well with us,” said Karl-Heinz Rummenigge. “These were important points.”

at Least until Friday night, the residue of the FC Bayern Munich is now only six instead of nine points, and the record master smells a little title air. “It was important,” said Muller, “to give a sign that there is with us again.” Nice, this character was not to be, however, that “it was more of a botch kick,” said Joshua Kimmich, “we have obtained about the mentality.”

This will, insured Kimmich, will also be on Saturday at Eintracht Frankfurt, “because you will see a team that shows they want to win”. Because on Friday, the leader plays against second, “can we be either Gladbach or closer to Dortmund,” reckoned goalkeeper Manuel Neuer. With Mönchengladbach Bayern level on points (33).

This away game in Frankfurt “is again a very tough nut to crack,” says Kimmich, but: In case of victory “is in the back round something is possible”. A victory is mandatory, because “six points,” said Rummenigge, “a lot”. And no, stressed, therefore, the sports Director of Hasan Salihamidzic, “we don’t want to talk about the championship”. It is important, however, “that we have shown us once again”.

at Least as much as the table has the FC Bayern shortly before Christmas, also his personal situation. And there’s a Problem just before the winter break. Against the brave, but not determined enough occurring in Leipzig, Serge Gnabry (23.) and Kingsley Coman (61.) in advance from the course, as well as the good Renato Sanches (90.+2): He saw Yellow-Red for a bump against Stefan Ilsanker, who, in turn, had seen Red for a challenge on Thiago (90.+1).Gnabry suffered a muscle fibre tear in the left thigh and missing in Frankfurt. Just like the banned Sanches. What is a Coman, is still unclear.

Against Leipzig Jerome Boateng (back problems), Arjen Robben(thigh problems) and James (partially torn ankle ligament in the knee)– were also probably more reasons for the people of Munich, in the Winter on the transfer market to look around. Supposedly they have interest in Lucas Hernandez: The French world champion, Atletico Madrid would have been for a fixed 80 million euros. “Confirm you can only what if there is a fix, but the fix is still nothing,” said Rummenigge.
