Bavarian Podcast Works Postgame Show: Talking points from Bayern Munich’s embarrassing 5-0 loss to Gladbach in the DFB-Pokal

That started ugly and never really got any better.

Bayern Munich came out flat and paid for it dearly as it has suffered yet another second round exit from the DFB-Pokal.

Somehow, this is more painful than losing to Holstein Kiel on penalties.

It is ... I swear.

A curious lineup and a lethargic mentality led to Bayern Munich being absolutely blitzed by Borussia Mönchengladbach in a 5-0 defeat. Bayern Munich never looked like it was fully invested in making it a game.

Here is what we have on tap (not taps ... like the song):

  • Bayern Munich’s backline was absolutely dreadful in every respect.
  • Bayern Munich’s offense looked confused and frustrated.
  • How does a team so talented come out so flat?
  • Everybody has a plan until you get punched in the face.
  • Moving on ... but learning in the process.
