FC Bayern Munich had an outstanding half hour in the first half against VfB Stuttgart to achieve an undisputed 4-0 victory.
The Swabians knew how to please until Alphonso Davies (12th) was sent off early, but VfB acted completely haphazardly. The FCB and especially goal scorer Lewandowski took advantage of the shortcomings and in the meantime played themselves into a frenzy.
The Pole is currently not only well on the way to setting the age-old record of Bayern legend Gerd Müller, but is likely to pulverize the record, which has not been achievable for many years, at the end of the season. In addition, Jerome Boateng showed once again that his club would be well advised to keep him.
The theses on the game:
Left-back Alphonso Davies in particular let himself be duped time and again by Stuttgart’s fast winger Silas Wamangituka at the beginning of the encounter. The situation was even more bleak when Davies was sent off after a tough attack against Wataru Endo after just twelve minutes.
But the fact that from now on having to act with one man less did not seem to weaken the hosts – on the contrary. The red card for the Canadian acted as a wake-up call, the decimated collective suddenly seemed much more concentrated on the defensive and suddenly played fluid, interesting combination football.
“I have to pay a huge compliment to my team,” said coach Hansi Flick afterwards at the press conference. “After we were justifiably sent off, we narrowed the defensive spaces and acted well in possession of the ball. The goals were outstanding.”
Robert Lewandowski had identified the necessary boost in motivation when he was sent off: “We only woke up after the red card,” the goalgetter analyzed in an interview Sky. “It was a challenge for us to create scoring opportunities with ten players.” On the other hand, due to the fact that they had been presented by ten Munich residents, there was disillusionment; the Stuttgart protagonists embarked on research into the causes.
