Munich (AP) - The Hoffenheim Sargis Adamyan has shocked the lazy stars of FC Bayern shortly after the gala appearance in the Champions League in Bundesliga daily life.
The attacker made a 2-1 (0-0) win on Saturday (54./79 minutes) for the first victory of TSG 1899 Hoffenheim in Munich. Four days after the 7: 2 in London, the German football series champion experienced a mood crash - and the day before the Oktoberfest visit of the team. The eleventh goal of the season scorer Robert Lewandowski (73.) did not even reach to avert the first home defeat in a year.
Niko Kovac changed the successful Tottenham-Torshow team only by taking Thiago in for David Alaba, who was injured in London. World champion Benjamin Pavard had to help out again left back. Former international Jérôme Boateng had been fit in time - and that was good for the Munich first.
Because the 31-year-old prevented in front of 75,000 spectators in the early stages of a backlog, when he overtook the sprintend after a pass from Ihlas Bebou alone on the Bayern gate tapering Adamyan and could interfere decisively at the conclusion (4th).
Otherwise, the Bayern determined the game, but largely rippled in front of him. There was a lack of speed, wit, precision and determination in the Munich offensive. A goal from Serge Gnabry, who had a great moment in London as a four-time scorer, was denied because of an offside from master sitter Joshua Kimmich (24.). National player Gnabry checked shortly afterwards with a shot Oliver Baumann in the score (25). Corentin Tolisso shot over from a very good position (27.).
There was no spectacle this time - and Thomas Müller had to watch the action again from the bank. The Hoffenheim closed well with running good the rooms, but stayed forward for a long time.
But then there was Munich help: Tolisso lost like before the 0: 1 in London the ball reckless. Dennis Geiger served Adamayan, who used his second great scoring chance coldly. Kovac responded, sat with Müller and Ivan Perisic on total offensive. But Stefan Posch almost scored the 2: 0 for Hoffenheim (65.).
The Bavarians wanted, but they did not light. Philippe Coutinho was not a factor in the game design. Lewandowski headed over the goal (70.). But the second header of Poland sat - after a precise flank of Müller. A quarter of an hour remained.
But not the champion broke down, but Hoffenheim struck a second time, again by the strong Adamyan. From 16 meters, the striker overcame fine goalkeeper Robert Skov goalkeeper Manuel Neuer. Gnabry still had a chance to equalize but his shot narrowly missed the goal (87 '). Then came the final whistle. And the Hoffenheim people cheered.
