Bayern's Humbling Defeat: A Shocking 5-1 Rout by Frankfurt
Thomas Tuchel's Men Face a Humiliating Loss, Setting the Stage for a Crucial Champions League Showdown with Manchester United
In just 12 minutes, the reigning German champions found themselves trailing 1-0 as Omar Marmoush netted a goal, followed by Junior Dina Ebimbe doubling the home team's lead after half an hour. Hugo Larsson then extended the deficit to 3-0. Although Joshua Kimmich managed to pull one back for Bayern before halftime, Frankfurt continued their dominance with two more goals in the second half, sealing a remarkable 5-1 victory.
This defeat marks the first time in 19 years thatBayern Munich
has faced a 3-0 deficit so early in a match, the last instance being in 2004 against Werder Bremen. Thomas Tuchel's team, experiencing their initial league loss of the season, now trails the league leaders, Bayer Leverkusen, by three points.
Notably, Frankfurt's accomplishment of scoring five goals against Bayern within 60 minutes hasn't been achieved in the league since 1975, when they were also the team to achieve such a feat against the Bavarians.
Looking ahead, Bayern aims for recovery in the upcoming midweek UEFA Champions League clash with Manchester United. The English side must secure three points against the already-qualified German team to have any chance of advancing.
