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