Bayern Munich's crisis reached its peak on Sunday after its third official defeat in a row. After defeat in the top match against Bayer Leverkusen last weekend and a 0-1 defeat against Lazio Roma in the Champions League, Bayern surprisingly lost to Bochum 2-3 at the end of the twenty-second round of the German League.

The pressure on Thomas Tuchel is increasing. Officially, the Bayern coach is still receiving support. CEO Jan Christian Driessen replied “of course” when asked if Tuchel would also be on the bench for the next match against RB Leipzig.

The truth is that Munich is now 8 points behind Leverkusen. A twelfth consecutive championship title is becoming increasingly distant for the record champions.

Upamecano flies again

The match against the outside player started off in a decent manner. Jamal Musiala (14th) put Bayern ahead initially in the persistent rain in Bochum. After that, Munich had a lot of possession, but didn't know what to do with it.

Takuma Asano (38) after Musiala lost the ball, Kevin Schlotterbeck (44) with a header after a corner and Kevin Stoger (78) with a penalty kick turned things upside down. Stoger's penalty kick was preceded by a foul by Dayot Upamecano, who received a second yellow card. Upamecano had previously caused a penalty kick against Lazio Roma, which led to the decisive goal.

Harry Kane scored the next goal in the 87th minute, achieving his 25th goal this season. Despite the tumultuous final minutes, Bayern was unable to equalize.

Frankfurt taking the lead three times is not enough

In Sunday's other match, Frankfurt took the lead three times away to Freiburg, but in the end Eintracht only got one point. Michael Gregoritsch scored with a header for the home team in the 89th minute to make the score 3-3.

The two Sunday matches were stopped several times due to fan protests against investors joining the German Football League. In Freiburg, a remote-controlled plane from a Breisgau fan's curve landed on the grass, and in Bochum, fans again threw tennis balls onto the court.
