Bayern got off to a disastrous start in their Bundesliga home match against SV Darmstadt 98. Joshua Kimmich received a red card after three minutes. After just a few minutes, the lilies were also affected.
Bayern certainly imagines it differently. Munich must finish their Bundesliga duel against Darmstadt with nine players on the field. Reason: Joshua Kimmich received a red card after an emergency stoppage in the early stages of the match. The 28-year-old player missed the ball in front of his team’s penalty area 240 seconds after the start of the match, and Marvin Mahlem intervened and ran freely towards Manuel Neuer, until Kimmich bit him on the ground just before the penalty area. For Kimmich, this is the first direct dismissal of his professional career.
Gjasula also received red after emergency braking
Kimmich committed an unusually high number of fouls during the Champions League match against Galatasaray Istanbul during the week. What is especially bitter is that Kimmich will almost certainly miss the first match against Borussia Dortmund (4.11) next week. The German Football Association’s sports court will finally decide how long the ban will last.
However, Bayern had to play outnumbered for just under 15 minutes. Klaus Giasola also received a red card in the 21st minute after an emergency stop against Konrad Laimer. So both teams now have one less player on the field.
