Bayern Munich Loss To Third-Tier Saarbrücken In DFL Cup


Third-tier Saarbrücken eliminated Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich from the German Cup in the second round with a thrilling 2-1 victory on Wednesday.

Deep into second-half stoppage time, Marcel Gaus scored the game’s winning goal for the home team, capping an incredible comeback and setting off loud celebrations among the supporters while the Bayern players watched in complete disbelief.

Thomas Müller gave Bayern, who hadn’t won the trophy since 2020, the lead in the first half. However, Saarbrücken tied the score in first-half extra time.

“This is a brutal blow for us,” said Muller, with his team next facing title rivals Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga on Saturday.

“To be eliminated for the third time in the second round of the Cup is not what we strive for. We have to congratulate Saarbruecken for their fight. A bit of luck is also part of it.”

“Then we are hit on the break in the 96th minute but we had wasted too many chances before that.”

The team that thrashed Darmstadt 98 8-0 on Saturday saw multiple changes made by Bayern coach Thomas Tuchel. Frans Krätzig, 20, earned his first start, and top scorer Harry Kane, Kingsley Coman, and Jamal Musiala were all left on the bench.

Due to severe weather, the game had been called into question, but the home team had more early difficulties with Bayern before the visitors took the lead when Muller was set up by Kratzig in the 15th minute.

Midway through the first half, Matthijs de Ligt, a defender for the Netherlands, also had to be substituted by Bayern due to a knee injury.

Bayern’s situation worsened just before the half when Patrick Sontheimer tapped in from close range after defender Kim Min-Jae’s ball was intercepted.

The hosts went on a fast break and a cutback from the right floated across the entire box past three Bayern players before Gaus thundered in the winner with a low left-foot effort in the sixth minute of extra time. The Bavarians were unable to exploit opportunities and paid the price.
