FC Bayern Munich is making giant strides towards the 30th Bundesliga championship, the ninth in a row. Four days after leaving the Champions League against Paris Saint-Germain, the record champions defeated VfL Wolfsburg 3-2 (3-1) on the 29th Bundesliga matchday. Then coach Hansi Flick made the big bang – and publicly asked for a contract termination.
“I just told the team that I told the club during the week after the 1-0 win in Paris that I would like to get out of the contract. It was important to me that the team find out about me. I’m very grateful that I was allowed to accompany the team, “said Flick less than an hour after the end of the game Sky.
Flick is considered the DFB’s absolute preferred candidate to succeed national coach Joachim Löw, who will resign his post after the European Championships and then for 15 years. The DFB had announced that it would not approach coaches who are under contract elsewhere. That could soon change at Flick, should the record champions grant his request to terminate his contract. Flick’s contract with Bayern Munich runs until 2023, but recently the atmospheric disturbances between him and sports director Hasan Salihamidzic had become more and more obvious.

Jamal Musiala (15th, 37th) and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting (24th) scored for Bayern, Wout Weghorst (35th) and Maximilian Philipp for Wolfsburg (54th).
VfL Wolfsburg – FC Bayern Munich: The analysis
This means that the people of Munich are above their own plan announced by coach Hansi Flick. “We want to give everything and become champions as soon as possible. We look positively on the five points and we want to keep this gap in every game. For that we need a win and three points in Wolfsburg,” Flick said on Friday before RB stumbled in Hoffenheim.
The tight game result in Wolfsburg did not in the least reflect the course of the game, the two goals conceded were mainly the result of the great carelessness that Munich has shown on the defensive this season.
FC Bayern will now continue with the games against Bayer Leverkusen (Tuesday, April 20) and Mainz (Saturday, April 24). Wolfsburg remains in third place despite the second defeat in a row because the fourth Eintracht Frankfurt lost at Borussia Mönchengladbach.
Bayern coach Hansi Flick had just one change compared to the bitter, because the CL-Aus-bringing victory in Paris – and it was a big hit. Musiala played for the ailing Coman. The 18-year-old is affectionately called “Bambi” by the older ones in the squad, but “snake” would be just as appropriate: How Musiala pranced through the Wolfsburg penalty area with the ball before the 1-0 (15th), flexible hips, loose legs , looked wonderfully smooth, spontaneous and at the same time thoroughly choreographed.
And by the way, he also gave the template Davies a little lesson in effective dancing: Davies had previously nibbled and left national player Baku, but had stalled in his dance through the Wolfsburg penalty area and was lucky that Musiala was just right and could pick up the ball to his dance.
Wolfsburg: Casteels – Mbabu, Lacroix, Brooks, Otavio – Schlager, Gerhardt – Baku (55th Brekalo), Philipp, Victor (60th Roussillon) – Weghorst.
Bayern Munich: Neuer – Pavard, Boateng, Hernandez, Davies – Kimmich, Alaba – Musiala (73rd Coman), Müller, Sane – Choupo-Moting.
VfL Wolfsburg – FC Bayern Munich: The data of the game
Musiala has already scored six Bundesliga goals thanks to his brace in Wolfsburg. And that although he was only allowed to play a comparatively few 581 plus 73 minutes in the Bundesliga today. Bayern’s man for the future is the new national player anyway, but one would trust him and wish him an even more important role in the current present.
If Wolfsburg’s goalkeeper still looked maximally unhappy at Musiala’s dance to Bayern’s 1-0 when the ball flew through his arms into the goal, his completely unsuccessful defense against David Alaba’s flank ball was the direct template for Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting’s header to make it 2-0 . Used afternoon for the Belgian national goalkeeper, who is one of the pillars of the otherwise strong Wolfsburg season.
