Sport Flick after victory without Lewandowski: "Everything turned out well"
Lewandowski deserved 99 on FIFA 21 - Bielefeld's Klos in awe of Bayern striker
In the opinion of Fabian Klos there are no weaknesses in Robert Lewandowski's game and he should be rated 99 overall on FIFA 21.Lewandowski had the most prolific season of his career in 2019-20, scoring 55 goals in 47 appearances in all competitions as Bayern claimed a Bundesliga, DFB-Pokal and Champions League treble.
After the almost unsuccessful experiment without Robert Lewandowski, Hansi Flick took a deep breath.
“In the end it's all about the bare result. And so everything turned out well, ”said the coach of FC Bayern Munich after the arduous 2-1 (2-0) in the Bundesliga against 1. FC Köln, which was still without a win.
At his old place of work as a player, Flick had allowed himself the luxury of leaving the ten-time season scorer Lewandowski in Munich to spare. That almost took revenge. But after the job win, Flick drew a positive conclusion in this regard as well. Lewandowski, who is actually known for always wanting to play, “found pleasure” in taking a break in view of the tight schedule with many trips, Flick reported. “You always expect him to be there one hundred percent and score his goals. It's an incredible mental tension, "said the coach:" That's why it was very good for him. "
Arminia Bielefeld 1-4 Bayern Munich: Lewandowski continues hot scoring as Tolisso sees red
Bayern Munich cruised to a 4-1 win over Arminia Bielefeld on Saturday, Robert Lewandowski helping himself to another couple of goals.Lewandowski scored four times in Bayern's 4-3 win over Hertha Berlin in their last match before the international break and struck twice for Poland in a victory over Bosnia-Herzegovina in midweek.
Erix-Maxim Choupo-Moting and his substitute Joshua Zirkzee confirmed that the gap behind “Europe's Footballer of the Year” is huge. With just seven shots on goal, FC Bayern had fewer than ever before in a Bundesliga game. And even two less than the relegation threatened Cologne.
"In the end it was a job win, not a gala and not a brilliant performance," said Thomas Müller, who himself ensured with a hand penalty (13th) that his 260th Bundesliga victory for FC Bayern set the current board's record -Member hired Oliver Kahn. "We were often a bit provocative and casual," warned Müller, but praised the "passion to defend the victory." Flick said that too. "I am very satisfied with the attitude, the mentality and the will to win," he said: "Fortunately, we have managed well and cleverly over time."
Lewandowski out to surpass Ronaldo – Champions League in Opta numbers
Robert Lewandowski could make Champions League history on Wednesday, and Real Madrid will try to avoid the rarity of three losses in a row.Liverpool, winners in 2019, travel to Ajax, and Real Madrid host Shakhtar Donetsk, with two of the competition's most successful clubs hoping to avoid some worrying runs of defeats.
Cologne, who did not buckle after the 2-0 defeat by Serge Gnabry (45th + 1), made the connection with Dominick Drexler (82nd) and in the end pressed for an equalizer, were proud of their best performance of the season. Still sad because of the missed surprise or sensation. “It feels kind of strange,” said coach Markus Gisdol: “I think nobody would have complained if it had been 1: 1 or 2: 2 in the end. Or even a little different. "
For Drexler's goalscorer, frustration clearly outweighed pride. «The Bavarians were obviously tired. In the constitution you don't get it often, "said the 30-year-old:" And if it was possible, of course you would have liked to take something with you. "
The early hand penalty also caused discussions. Marius Wolf had pulled his hand away from a short distance after a header from Gnabry, but not quite in time. He hadn't prevented a scoring chance, there was no intention, and yet the whistle was legal. “The referee can't help it,” said Gisdol: “But the rule is of course borderline, it should be reconsidered. In the past it wasn't a hand, and it would be better if it wasn't a hand today. "
Flick did not want to deal with the topic much. "I don't make the rules, so I don't have to worry about whether they are good or not," he said: "But today it helped us." And prevented a sensitive damper in the championship race.
