Munich (dpa) - This show of force of his triple boys made Hansi Flick completely happy.
The 8: 0 (3: 0) against defenseless Schalke footballers was exactly the image of strength that the Munich coach wanted to offer all would-be Bayern hunters at the Bundesliga opener: “It was important for us to show that we are also in this Season are here. "
Bayern played again in triple quality just 26 days after winning the Champions League and a very short preparation.
And with the eight Watschn for the sparring partner from Gelsenkirchen, two turbo kickers from a Munich class team stood out.
Triple scorer Serge Gnabry and Königstransfer Leroy Sané shone as wing tongs in the jerseys with the 7 and the 10, as Bayern legends Franck Ribéry and Arjen Robben had done for a decade.
“We had a lot of speed up front,” confirmed Flick, but also slowed down: “We had the first game.
Let's take it slow now. "
What is shown is now the benchmark for the duo and the team.
Sané gave his national team-mate Gnabry two goals, one of which the 24-year-old scored on his Bayern debut against his former club. “I'm very happy.
It felt very good to finally play football with the boys, ”said Sané, who is clearly picking up speed after his cruciate ligament rupture has healed.
Speed, wit, tricks - Schalke was mercilessly inferior in the spectatorless Allianz Arena "against what is probably the best team in the world at the moment", as coach David Wagner noted with approval.
However, the first tendency for the team from Gelsenkirchen: relegation candidate.
In addition to Gnabry and Sané, Leon Goretzka, penalty taker Robert Lewandowski, Thomas Müller and 17-year-old Jamal Musiala also celebrated goals.
The Bayern management team, who were surprisingly close together in the stands in the more violent Corona times, had their joy.
“It's amazing how the team got back to work right away,” said board member Oliver Kahn.
“The boys are still hungry, even though they won the triple,” said Neu-Bayer Sané.
Also continued seamlessly from the previous season.
The crisis club has now been without a win for a total of 17 Bundesliga games.
Only once did the Royal Blues lose higher: 1967 at 0:11 against Borussia Mönchengladbach.
"That was bad.
We didn't play well, Bayern were in excellent shape, ”said Wagner.
The fact that his team wanted to continue playing forward after the 0: 4 and 0: 5 was simply "naive".
The pressure on him too is growing.
"We have to shake now, accept this bitter defeat and show the reaction against Bremen that we expect from ourselves," said Wagner with a view to the home game in a week.
