6-0! HSV suffer heavy defeat in Munich

HSV went behind in only the 8th minute against Bayern Munich. Lewandowski (12’, 19’, 90’), Robben (55’) and two goals from Ribéry (8’, 81’) gave the record champions the win.

The Rothosen lost 6-0 on Saturday (10th March) afternoon in a sold-out Allianz Arena. The record champions took the lead in only the eighth minute through Franck Ribéry, which paved the path to victory for FC Bayern. Robert Lewandowski (12’, 19’, 90’ pen.), Arjen Robben (55’) and a brace from Ribéry (8’, 81’) determined the result in favour of the table toppers.

Early deficit…

Bernd Hollerbach sent out a starting formation with three at the back, a tiered midfield and three up front to take on the record champions. However, the front three barely saw the ball and the compact formation saw Ribéry penetrate early on (8’). HSV were unable to get a grip on the match and Bayern had no trouble pushing forwards and Lewandowski’s first two goals effectively ended the game. The score stood at 3-0 for the hosts after only 20 minutes and Hollerbach made his first change early on to change to four at the back. This gave the team more stability and, at least until the half-time whistle, no more goals were scored.

… and Bayern kept pushing

After the change of ends, Bayern noticeably took the intensity down a gear, while HSV’s time to score a consolation goal narrowed. Not much went on up front for the Rothosen and only two small opportunities arose in the second 45 minutes. Bayern, on the other hand, were able to score a fourth, during a spell which felt like the pits of despair for Hamburg: a shot hit the post, two penalties were awarded to Bayern and a dominant 6-0 victory for Bayern was the result as the HSV defence just could not keep the FC Bayern forwards out of the final third. 21-1 was the number of shots each side had before the final whistle. The only highlight for HSV was the Bundesliga debut for 17-year-old Vagnoman. The young HSV talent became the next player born in this century to make a Bundesliga appearance.
