Bayern Munich Seals Position in DFB-Pokal Quarterfinals

Bayern Munich Seals Position in DFB-Pokal Quarterfinals

Bayern Munich is considered as the most successful football club in the Deutscher Fussball-Bund (DFB)-Pokal German Cup.

With 18 titles, the Bundesliga team has dominated the other 63 in the yearly contest by the German Football Association.

This Saturday, the team will clash against Schalke at the Allianz Arena in Munich. Team manager Niko Kovac is looking forward to another victory following Wednesday’s auspicious match.

Bayern Munich successfully defeated Hertha Berlin with the final score of 3-2 at the Olympiastadion Berlin.

During the match’s 98th minute, forward Kingsley Coman took the honor of striking his first goal since December, heading in from close range.

Coman made it possible for the Bundesliga team to make it to the quarter-finals of the annual DFB-Pokal.

Bayern Munich’s extra-time winner feat was also engineered by Serge Gnabry who is, what most sports analysts reckon, deserving of the “Man of the Match” recognition.

The Bayern Munich winger struck two goals during their game against Hertha Berlin. His first powerful goal successfully surpassed the bottom-left corner of the net guarded by Hertha Berlin goalkeeper Rune Jarstein.

Gnabry’s second goal came shortly following half-time, giving Hertha Berlin difficulties in overcoming the German Cup quarterfinal qualifier.

Kovac is pleased with his team’s performance against Hertha Berlin. However, he cautioned about errors like what Mats Hummels committed during the game.

The Bayern Munich central defender apparently lost his focus, making it easy for Pál Dárdai’s team to achieve an equalizer on the 67th minute with just its second shot on the goal.

Hummels did not notice that Davie Selke was furtively moving behind him.

Hence, he inadvertently made it effortless for the Hertha Berlin striker to collect the ball and kick it under Sven Ulreich’s net, tying the match to 2-2.

Bayern Munich has struggled to dominate weaker competitors lately, with football analysts considering the defending Bundesliga champions’ current performance as lackluster.

Kovac’s team, apparently, has to exert more effort and maintain their concentration on their upcoming games in order for Bayern Munich to retain their winning streaks.
