Tactical analysis: Frankfurt's pressing, Bayern's grounded wings in the Pokal https://www.bayerncentral.com/2018/05/frankfurt-1-3-dfbpokal-final-tactical-analysis/ https://www.bayerncentral.com/2018/05/frankfurt-1-3-dfbpokal-final-tactical-analysis/#respond Sat, 19 May 2018 21:58:22 +0000 https://bayerncentral.onefootball.com/?p=40620

Two elements were FC Bayern's undoing against Eintracht Frankfurt in DFB-Pokal final on Saturday. The opponents' pressing and a lack of firepower on the wings deservedly sunk the ship.

Player ratings: Kimmich and James great in a sloppy team showing https://www.bayerncentral.com/2018/05/frankfurt-1-3-dfbpokal-final-player-ratings/ https://www.bayerncentral.com/2018/05/frankfurt-1-3-dfbpokal-final-player-ratings/#respond Sat, 19 May 2018 20:30:18 +0000 https://bayerncentral.onefootball.com/?p=40616

Bayern displayed an overall average team performance against Frankfurt but Kimmich and James' individual performances were great.

Eintracht Frankfurt showed Bayern how to play a cup final https://www.bayerncentral.com/2018/05/frankfurt-1-3-dfbpokal-final-thoughts/ https://www.bayerncentral.com/2018/05/frankfurt-1-3-dfbpokal-final-thoughts/#respond Sat, 19 May 2018 20:26:08 +0000 https://bayerncentral.onefootball.com/?p=40618

Bayern ended the season with yet another self-inflicted defeat in a defining game. Eintracht Frankfurt gave the Bavarians a lesson in self-respect and won the DFB-Pokal with a fantastic fighting spirit.

Bayern's defence, especially at left-back, has been left wanting for much of the season. We explore some targets they ought to approach.

Bayern saw the Bundesliga season off with perhaps the worst performance of the campaign. Every single player put forth a dismal display, in what was a terrible league farewell for Jupp Heynckes.

FC Bayern players dishonoured the Mia san mia motto on their shirts in a 1:4 loss against VfB Stuttgart on Saturday, showing a lack of interest in sending off a legendary coach.

A strong Bayern lineup for Jupp Heynckes' final match at the Allianz https://www.bayerncentral.com/2018/05/stuttgart-bundesliga18-ruckrunde-possible-lineup/ https://www.bayerncentral.com/2018/05/stuttgart-bundesliga18-ruckrunde-possible-lineup/#respond Fri, 11 May 2018 18:13:47 +0000 https://bayerncentral.onefootball.com/?p=40569

FC Bayern have entered the final stretch under the legendary Jupp Heynckes. I would expect the great man to go out on his final Bundesliga games in a grandiose manner with a strong lineup.
