As early as this Wednesday evening, FC Bayern has not failed in the DFB Cup for more than 20 years. In the second round comes the end against the strong second division player Holstein Kiel. Munich’s coach Hansi Flick is shocked by the embarrassment.
Fin Bartels. Would it not have been possible now before this Wednesday evening that the name of the 33-year-old will forever be associated with one of the bigger sensations of German cup history. Bartels is of course a man who has always scored important goals in important games, for example, on 4 December he (pre-)decided the top game of the 2nd Bundesliga against VfL Bochum. Union Berlin, Borussia Dortmund and the Hamburg SV – very important for a Hanseaten – also know how painful Bartels gates can be. And now FC Bayern, who embarrassed themselves after the Kieler’s final blow in the penalty drama in the DFB Cup.
