Bris Vegas Posted July 28, 2013 Share Posted July 28, 2013 Basically started early.. Dortmund beat Bayern (Pep's first competitive game in charge) 4-2 yesterday.. It was a really entertaining game.. Bayern in fairness played a weaker side.. There was no Schweinsteiger, Ribbery, Martinez, Dante, Neuer in the starting line up.. But Bayern lacked the directness that they had before.. They definitely controlled possession but they lacked the speed in their approach play to really hurt Dortmund.. And at the back they looked quite poor.. Their GK had a mare when receiving the ball and they really didn't look too comfortable playing it around at the back in tight spots like Barca/Spain do.. I think Bayern will easily win the league again but they'll need to adapt quickly at the back if they want to play their way out of trouble as Dortmund and especially the high pressure quality sides will exploit them when they're hesitant.. Ajax also won the Dutch cup 3-2 in extra time against AZ.. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
