Bayern Munich 1-0 Borussia Moenchengladbach

goal
An under-par Bayern Munich had Arjen Robben to thank for a late winner, as the champions overcame a resilient Gladbach to win 1-0 at the Allianz Arena.

Robben’s 78th minute winner was enough to hand the Bavarian giants all three points, which help die Roten to move up to third in the league following Hannover’s away defeat to Dortmund.

After a slow start to the game, Bayern began to lay siege on the Gladbach goal and came within whiskers of opening the scoring on 18 minutes. After a mazy run down the right wing, Arjen Robben cut infield before sending a fizzing low effort towards goal which Logan Bailly parried into the path of Mario Gomez three yards from goal. Unfortunately for the Bundesliga top scorer, the ball rebounded off his thigh and into the grateful arms of Bailly.

The second-half started at a similar pace, with both sides lacking the urgency required to take control of the game- although the Bavarian giants could have opened the scoring on 54 minutes.

The subdued Franck Ribery picked up the ball on the left-side of the box before turning his marker and unleashing a powerful effort, which narrowly missed the far corner of the net with Bailly at full-stretch.

Die Fohlen came close themselves four minutes later with Patrick Herrmann finding space down the right wing. The 20-year-old delivered an inviting low cross towards Marco Reus, but Holger Badstuber was on hand to desperately divert the ball out of play for a Borussia corner.

Bayern were still threatening and went close on 73 minutes. Ribery did well to clip a cross into the danger zone with an umarked Gomez rising to meet the ball, only to see his effort sail agonisingly wide of the far-post.

The deadlock was finally broken in the 78th minute with the home side taking the lead. Robben’s slaloming central run saw the Dutchman play a neat one-two with Ribery before sweeping the ball past Bailly from six yards out, a goal that could prove vital for Bayern’s aspirations of Champions League football next season.

Substitute Miroslav Klose nearly doubled the scoring four minutes later when Robben squared the ball to the experienced striker, but his 15 yard effort struck the outside of the post with the Moenchengladbach ‘keeper beaten.

Bayern visit Nuernberg next weekend, while Gladbach entertain relegation rivals Koeln in a real six-pointer.

Freiburg 1-2 Bayern Munich

Comments Off

goal.com
Franck Ribery’s dramatic late winner kept Bayern Munich’s Champions League hopes alive as they broke the hearts of a brave Freiburg side in a 2-1 victory. The Bundesliga’s two leading goalgetters this season, Mario Gomez and Papiss Cisse, traded goals before the French winger decided the game.

After a reasonably subdued start to the game, the reigning champions opened the scoring in the ninth minute through a set-piece. Franck Ribery delivered the free-kick onto the head of Mario Gomez, whose intelligent run across Freiburg center-back Omer Toprak enabled him to guide the ball past a helpless Oliver Baumann for his nineteenth goal of the campaign.

Freiburg equalized nine minutes later as Bayern’s defensive frailties returned to haunt them. After the visitors’ defense failed to deal with the initial ball in from the right, Luiz Gustavo suffered a momentary lapse in concentration and lost Papiss Demba Cisse, who poked the ball home from close range past Kraft. It was Cisse’s eighteenth of the term, a record for any Freiburg player in one season.

Just as the game looked to be heading for a draw as both sides failed to take their chances, French winger Franck Ribery popped up with a dramatic winner in the 88th minute. Cutting in from the left, he rifled a right-footed shot into the bottom corner past Baumann, sparking wild celebrations from the Bayern players, who were only too aware of the significance of a win today.

Die Breisgau-Brasilianer also wasted another opportunity to equalize in the fourteenth minute after a controversial decision from referee Peter Gagelmann. Bayern goalkeeper Thomas Kraft was adjudged to have brought down Cedric Makiadi. Kraft recovered to save his second penalty of the season, clutching onto a poor effort from Cisse.

In a blow for the visitors, Arjen Robben had to be replaced by Hamit Altintop on the half-hour after picking up an abductor injury. Freiburg were the better side and had the chance to take the lead five minutes later but Makiadi did not know what hit him and he shanked the rebound wide after Daniel Caligiuri’s speculative shot struck the post.

Louis van Gaal’s men came out firing on all cylinders after the break with Toni Kroos’ shot heading towards goal before Gomez’s intervention took it wide. Cedric Makiadi and Hamit Altintop also failed to give their sides the lead, both missing gilt-edged opportunities from close range. Oliver Baumann made two excellent second-half stops to deny Altintop and then Klose but he was powerless to prevent Ribery’s winner.

Bayern remain in fourth spot and are still just two points off Hannover while Freiburg drop below Hamburg to eighth. When the Bundesliga resumes in a fortnight after the international break, Bayern will host bottom of the table Borussia Moenchengladbach and Freiburg will travel to Mainz.

Bayern Munich 2-3 Inter (Agg 3-3)

Comments Off

goal.com
Inter overturned their first-leg loss at San Siro and a 3-1 aggregate deficit as they earned a last-gasp 3-2 victory over Bayern Munich and booked their spot in the Champions League quarter finals.

It took less than four minutes for Inter to get their away goal with a typical poacher’s finish by Samuel Eto’o after the Cameroon internation was played in by Goran Pandev. In the 21st minute, Bayern drew level with a little help from Julio Cesar, who spilled Arjen Robben’s long-range blast before Mario Gomez netted from a clever overhead kick.

Ten minutes later, Dejan Stankovic deflected Robben’s through ball into the path of Thomas Muller, who flicked his side into a 2-1 lead with the outside of his right foot.

The match changed considerably in the second half as Inter grew in confidence. Wesley Sneijder fired in a gorgeous daisy cutter on 63 minutes, and the looked to be more dangerous. Goran Pandev settled the tie on 88 minutes with a brilliant finish from the edge of the penalty area.

After struggling in the opening minutes, the hosts grew more confident following Gomez’s goal, and created more than enough clear chances to score a third. Franck Ribery skipped past Andrea Ranocchia on 35 minutes but Cesar atoned for his earlier mistake with a tremendous save.

Shortly thereafter, Gomez had his effort roll across the goal line before Ranocchia’s clearance deflected off the post. Robben was through on goal two minutes before the break, but only managed to hit the side netting.

For their part, Inter had enough opportunities to reclaim the lead, but Stankovic put his effort wide from the centre of the penalty box. Sneijder also came close from a free kick, but his dipping effort went harmlessly over the bar.

In the second half, the hosts were comparatively flat in attack, and Gomez’s saved volley on 62 minutes was their only real chance on goal to make it 3-2. Sneijder’s goal, coupled with Robben’s substitution on 68 minutes, marked the teams’ role reversal. On 67 minutes, Pandev fired over the bar, but the Macedonian made no mistake with his brilliantly struck winner.

The result sees Inter through to the quarter finals again as Serie A’s flagship team. Bayern crash out to Inter for the second consecutive year, and will be without silverware in 2011.

Bayern Munich 6-0 Hamburg: Robben Hat-Trick Puts Bayern Back In Champions League Contention

Comments Off

goal.com
A hat-trick from flying Dutch winger Arjen Robben ensured that Louis van Gaal came out on top in the battle of the lame duck coaches as Bayern Munich gained their first victory in four competitive games in a 6-0 win over Hamburg. The victory means that Bayern go just two points behind Hannover in the quest for the final Champions League spot.

Much of Bayern’s woes this season have been due to the absence of Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery but both combined to give the champions a deserved lead five minutes before the half-time break. Ribery beat one challenge before sliding the ball to Robben. The Dutch winger then ran towards goal before blasting the ball high into the net beyond Frank Rost with his trademark left peg.

It did not take the home side long to double their lead upon coming out for the second period. Just over a minute in, Robben doubled his tally for the afternoon when his free-kick confounded Rost. The veteran goalkeeper could not commit himself for fear of a Bayern player getting a touch but he paid the price for staying on his line as he was unable to keep the ball out.

Robben put the icing on the cake, capping a virtuoso performance by adding his third on 55 minutes as he linked up once again with his French partner-in-crime. Ribery broke down the left leaving Tomas Rincon for dust. He then squared the ball for Robben, who took one touch inside the box before calmly stroking the ball into the bottom corner past Rost.

Provider for two of Robben’s hat-trick, Ribery turned goalscorer with a superbly taken goal nine mnutes later, which saw the winger rediscover his explosive speed. He left Macedonian defender Gojko Kacar trailing in his wake before delightfully lifting the ball into the net for a goal, which provides a timely confidence boost for the 27-year old.

Bayern’s fifth came on 79 mintues after yet another blistering counter attack from their attacking stars. Substitute Hamit Altintop broke forward before finding Thomas Mueller. The World Cup Golden Boot winner kept his nerve to stroke the ball under Rost into the bottom corner as Hamburg’s defence was opened up once more. Heiko Westermann then put the ball into his own net five minutes from time for the sixth goal after a party piece from Ribery down the left-hand side.

The first-half, which featured chances for both sides, was particularly notable for one incredible miss from Mario Gomez. Latching onto Mueller’s delicate through ball, he twisted past Westermann, rounded Rost before incredibly striking the post from point-blank range and the follow-up from Mueller was blasted over.

Hamburg were spirited after the break but in truth they were simply outclassed by a Bayern outfit with more than a point to prove in the week it was announced that Louis van Gaal would leave the club in the summer.

Van Gaal’s men move into fourth spot with 45 points, two behind third-placed Hannover. They travel to Freiburg at the weekend but not before the showdown with Inter in the Champions League. Hamburg, who have 37 points drop to eighth below Freiburg ahead of next weekend’s clash at home to Koeln.

Hannover 3-1 Bayern Munich: Van Gaal’s Future In Grave Danger As Champions League Football Slips From Bayern’s Grasp

Comments Off

goal.com
Bayern Munich coach Louis van Gaal’s position looks to be untenable after the champions lost 3-1 to a superior Hannover outfit in the third-place showdown. Everything went wrong for Bayern that could – an own goal, a goalkeeping howler and a red card. It now appears likely that a fourth Bundesliga coach will lose his job after a defeat to Hannover.

Hannover took a deserved lead on the quarter-hour. Konstantin Rausch broke down the left in acres of space. The midfielder looked up and calmly picked out Norwegian striker Mohamed Abdellaoue at the near post, who escaped the clutches of Anatoliy Tymoschuk and blasted the ball home from close range.

The home side doubled their lead five minutes into the second-half from a well-worked short corner. Rausch picked up the ball on the right-hand side and swung a left-footed shot towards goal. Mario Gomez, in attempting to clear, inadvertently headed the ball past Kraft and into the net, as if to neatly sum up the utter chaos engulfing der Rekordmeister at the moment.

And then two minutes later, Bayern finally stuttered into life as they got their way back into the game from an unsurprising goalscorer, even if the manner of the goal was not to be expected. Franck Ribery picked up the pieces after Thomas Mueller’s run inside the box was halted; the Frenchman crossed to the back post, where Arjen Robben stooped to head into the unguarded net.

However, any hopes of a revival were short-lived as the hosts extended their lead in the 63rd minute when van Gaal was let down by the youngster, in whom he had placed so much faith. Sergio Pinto robbed Andreas Ottl and strode forward before unleashing a 25-yard drive. It looked a straightforward save for Kraft but the goalkeeper fumbled the ball and despite his best efforts, it ricocheted the wrong side of the goal-line.

Although the game began in sedate fashion, Hannover looked comfortable and they were much the superior team in the first-half. Rausch had two excellent chances in addition to his goal. The first came on eleven minutes when he shot wide after a good break from former Bayern man Jan Schlaudraff. The second came eight minutes before half-time when he again placed his shot wide of the post on his weaker right foot.

Robben single-handedly tried to haul Bayern back into the game after the break. His stinging volley crashed into the side netting on 65 minutes before being denied by a brave Zieler moments later. Further salt was rubbed into Bayern wounds when Breno received his marching orders on 72 minutes after picking up a second booking.

Hannover captain Steve Cherundolo kept Bayern’s other star winger relatively stagnant on the night and Robben’s best efforts ended up not being enough.

The champions host Hamburg in Munich next weekend whilst Mirko Slomka’s men travel to Koeln. If reports are to be believed, Bayern will have a new coach at the helm.
