FC Bayern against the bottom of the table. It came as it had to come: There was the safe, sovereign, albeit lackluster victory of Munich. The industry leader in the Bundesliga was able to beat Schalke 2-0.
The royal blue showed a reasonable appearance under the circumstances. Thomas Reis' team focused on a compact defense, while small pinpricks could be made from time to time. The plan worked out for almost 40 minutes. S04 defended well and hardly allowed any chances to score. Then Serge Gnabry could punish a little carelessness directly.
Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting scored the goal to make it 2-0. Extremely annoying and unnecessary from Schalke's point of view: The goal came with a free kick from Gelsenkirchen as the starting point. There were just 16 seconds between Tobias Mohr's bad free kick and the goal.
However, the tail light never gave up and delivered an acceptable game in front of a great home crowd. A higher defeat was prevented.
