Mainz flabbergast Bayern Munich 2-1

A clinical Mainz snatched a late 2-1 victory thanks to Jhon Cordoba’s winner at Bayern Munich as runners-up Dortmund edged rival German football club Darmstadt 2-0 to reap the fourth straight win in the 24th round of Bundesliga.

Bayern Munich suffered their second loss of the season as Mainz shocked the hosts with the winner from Cordoba in the dying minutes of the game here on Wednesday, reports Xinhua.

Pep Guardiola’s men dominated the match from kick-off but Mainz goalkeeper Loris Karius drove the German giants to desperation after defusing the efforts by Arturo Vidal and Juan Bernat in the first 20 minutes.

Mainz came into the picture with their second chance in the 26th minute as Jairo Samperio shocked the hosts with the opener against the run of the game. Giulio Donati’s square pass to the far post found Jairo, who tapped in following a fast break.

Bayern piled on the pressure but were unable to overcome Mainz’s well-organised defence before the break. Things changed after the restart as Arjen Robben’s low-shot overcame Karius into the far post corner to level the scores with 64 minutes into the game.

It looked as it would be just a matter of time before the dominant hosts grab the lead but instead Mainz flabbergasted Bayer Munich in the 86th minute through Cordoba, who unleashed a hammer to beat custodian Manuel Neuer for the 2-1 lead.

The ‘Bavarians’ increased their efforts but Mainz kept their lead to the end to reap the 12th win of the season and defend their fifth place. Bayern remain atop the standings although their eight-point advantage melted to five owing to Dortmund’s win.

Runners-up Dortmund capitalised on Bayern’s unexpected loss as the ‘BVB’ edged newly promoted Darmstadt 2-0 to extend their winning streak. Dortmund reduce the arrears to front-runners Bayern to five points as Darmstadt remained in 14th place.

Elsewhere, Hertha Berlin defended their third place thanks to a 2-0 victory over struggling Frankfurt on home soil. Fourth placed Monchengladbach cruised 4-0 past Stuttgart, who suffered their second loss in a row.

Schalke returned into the top six after turning the tides to 3-1 against 10-men Hamburg.

Claudio Pizarro’s hat-trick helped Werder Bremen to ease their relegation worries following a 4-1 victory at Bayer Leverkusen and Hoffenheim earned decisive points in the relegation battle after overpowering Augsburg 2-1.

Former Bayern Munich chief Uli Hoeness released from prison

Berlin, March 1 (IANS) Former FC Bayern Munich president and German football great Uli Hoeness has been released from prison on suspension after serving half of his three-and-half-year sentence for tax evasion.

The 64-year-old leaves the prison after 637 days to serve the rest of his sentence on probation. Bavaria’s justice ministry confirmed that Hoeness was freed on Monday, reports Xinhua.

The former Bayern striker, who scored 86 goals in 239 from 1970 until 1979, lifted the European Championship in 1972 and the FIFA World Cup in 1974 with Germany’s national team.

After his professional career as a player, Hoeness became Bayern’s sporting director to control the club’s fate for 30 years before he was appointed as the club president in 2009.

However, five years later, in March 2014, Hoeness was sentenced to three-and-a-half-year in jail for evading 28.5 million euros (around $30.9) in taxes. At the beginning of 2015, Hoeness was allowed to leave the prison during daytime to work at Bayern’s youth academy.

Despite Hoeness’ absence, the German giants are on their way to reap the fourth Bundesliga title in row, and the 26th overall.

BREAKING: Pep Guardiola confirms Premier League will be his next destination

Pep Guardiola has opened up about his future at Bayern Munich and has said that he would be revealing his decision after Saturday’s clash against

Hannover.

The Spaniard’s three year contract with Bayern Munich ends by next summer and the Bundesliga club has been pressing him to sign a new deal by the end

of 2015 as a precautionary measure.

Reports have made it clear that Pep is walking out of Bayern after the end of this season and top premier league clubs are trying to attract him with thrilling

offers already. With Guardiola coming out in public and discussing his future it is all but certain that he will move to Premier Legaue next summer.

It is rumoured that Pep Guardiola was offered a blank cheque by Roman Abramovich in a desperate bid to get him to Chelsea after

Mourinho’s sacking!

Guardiola had reportedly ordered Manchester City’s employers that they would have to bring in Alexis Sanchez to the team if they wanted him to come to

Etihad.

An official announcement is on the cards,ie., after the game against Hannover.

Pep also clarified that the club’s chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has been informed of his decision.

“Kalle knows absolutely everything,” Guardiola said.

“The club, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge and I have said time and time again that we will say something after our final game in Hannover, and that’s how things

are going to stay. I’m just focusing on Hannover. I’ve been watching their games.”

With Guardiola sure to leave this summer, rumours are arising that former Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti has told friends that he is “90 per cent” sure to

take over as Bayern’s coach from next season.

Guardiola told that,“Carlo is a super coach and a super person,” and also revealed that he would be travelling to Spain on Sunday to spend time with his

family on Christmas eve.

Guardiola is currently being linked with Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea and the latest entrant to the race is Arsenal!

Guardiola is on his way to a hat-trick of domestic league wins with Bayern and has set his eyes on winning the Champions league having reached the

semi-finals two time before.

With multiple offers approaching from all sides of the premier league, it is to be seen which team will catch him first.

Captain Lahm joins injury list for Bayern Munich

Munich, Dec 17 (IANS) Bayern Munich captain Philipp Lahm has joined the long list of casualties of the German football club who will be absent from Saturday’s Bundesliga game against Hannover 96.

Coach Pep Guardiola wasn’t too pleased with the development and accused the head of the club’s medical services Volker Braun of being responsible for the epidemic of injuries currently affecting the team on Thursday, reports Efe. Braun in return, accused Guardiola of being responsible because he has returned players to training and competition earlier than recommended by the doctors.

Since last season there have been confrontations between Guardiola and the head of the medical teams of Bayern and the German selection, Hans-Wilhelm Muller-Wohlfahrt, which led to the sudden resignation of the latter. Lahm’s injury, which occurred in the game against Darmstadt, seems to be a muscle strain and he is expected to return after the winter break.

 

Also sidelined with muscle injuries are Arjen Robben, Douglas Costa, Mario Gotze, Mehdi Benatia and Juan Bernat, while David Alaba has an ankle injury and Franck Ribery, who after a nine-month absence with a bone inflammation, returned and sustained a tear in his thigh muscle.
