Live ticker VfL Bochum – FC Bayern Munich (Bundesliga 2022/2023, 3rd matchday)



Mid-term conclusion:
Bayern are once again clearly on course in Bochum and lead 4-0 at the break in the Ruhr Stadium! The hosts held up well overall and created a few chances, but VfL made life difficult for themselves with a few individual mistakes. After Sané’s early 1-0 lead, Riemann and Gamboa gave Bayern two more goals, for which de Ligt and Coman were responsible. All three players that Julian Nagelsmann called into the starting XI today scored. Mané then scored twice more, but only the second goal counted because the hand was involved in the first. So the bottom line is a 0:4, which is certainly a bit too high overall, but still reflects the dominance of the guests well. See you soon!



Official injury time (minutes): 2



Tooor for Bayern Munich, 0:4 by Sadio Mané
But now Mané scores his goal! Coman plays a fine through ball into the Senegalese’s run, who comes at goal from the right, then hooks inside, leaving Gamboa and Riemann in the dust. From the turn, Mané then hits the short corner with his left flat.



VAR decision: The goal by S. Mané (Bayern Munich) is disallowed, score: 0:3
Gate number four? Kimmich chips the ball onto Coman’s head, who hits the left post with his header at full speed. Mané follows up and somehow pushes the thing over the line from a short distance. But was the hand on it? The goalscorer has to smile himself and the VAR confirms it. No goal!



Overall, Bochum is not doing a bad game here and has a few chances. The capital blunders by Riemann and Gamboa have nevertheless already ensured clear conditions in favor of Bayern.



Philipp Förster tries it for VfL from a distance, but he can’t even get into trouble for Neuer.

Now the people of Bochum are doing the thing themselves! Gamboa wants to head a Kimmich cross back to keeper Riemann, but Müller smells it and intervenes. The ball bounces over to Coman, who slides into the empty goal from five yards.



If the home side still want to tear something here today, they will have to make better use of their chances at some point. After a cross from the right, Hofmann gets a header eight yards from goal, but puts it right on Neuer.



This time VfL Bochum would have to catch up two goals to create another miracle. Currently, however, the guests from Munich are pushing for the third goal.



As usual, Bayern do not switch back a catch after a goal, but up a gear. Sadio Mané puts himself in a shooting position 20 meters in front of the goal, but sends his bounce right into Riemann’s arms.



Does the hit last? De Ligt had apparently headed his hand before the ball went over the line. According to the rules, the hit can’t really count, but the VAR gives the green light after a long review. Maybe it was Gamboa’s hand that was on the ball, otherwise it’s a clear mistake.



Tooor for Bayern Munich, 0:2 by Matthijs de Ligt
A standard situation leads to the second Bayern goal! Kimmich pulls a corner ball from the left onto the second post. The ball keeps getting longer and keeper Riemann misses! Behind them, de Ligt beats Gamboa in the air and nods into the near corner with a bounce.



But Bochum also remains dangerous! After a high ball win at VfL, the long ball comes straight to the top. Hofmann heads beautifully into the run of Losilla, who has a clear path from 13 meters and chases his finish into the clouds.



The Bavarians are now putting a lot of pressure on again and making deals every minute! First, Coman volleyed it clear, then Sané also tried too high from an acute angle.



Then the FCB will come again! Müller gets the ball in the penalty area, lets a player from Bochum get out and then shoots with the right. But the ball doesn’t find its way through the numerous Bochum legs in front of the goal.



What is newbie doing there? Bayern’s goalkeeper gets the ball played into his feet on the five, wants to change sides and shoves the ball right into Bochum’s Asano’s feet! But he didn’t find Zoller waiting in the middle with his cross pass and so the national keeper’s faux pas had no consequences.



This is how the people of Bochum imagine it! After Sabitzer lost the ball, VfL switched quickly and Förster immediately sent Zoller on his way. The double goal scorer from last week moves over the left into the sixteen, then pushes the ball from a tight angle but only into Neuer’s arms.



Almost the 0:2! Coman prepares again, Sané withdraws again. This time from 24 meters and with the left. The ball would have landed right next to the left post, but Riemann deflects the ball just wide with his fingertips. Great job from the VfL keeper!



Even if the hosts wanted to avoid conceding an early goal, that doesn’t mean anything. Bayern also took the lead last season and then Bochum scored four times.



However, VfL is by no means shocked and remains offensive. Zoller comes to the ball eight meters from the goal and tries to finish it right away. At least he gets a corner.



Coman and Sané come in on the offensive and produce the first goal together. Blessed is he who has so much quality in the squad.



Tooor for Bayern Munich, 0:1 by Leroy Sané
With the first attack, the guests take the lead! Leroy Sané combines in midfield with Thomas Müller and Marcel Sabitzer and then brings the ball out to the right to Kingsley Coman. The Frenchman goes back to Sané, who takes off 15 meters from the right in front of the goal with his weaker right foot and hits the right gable, which is worth seeing.



VfL starts boldly and comes down the left with fast Saidy Janko. A first sharp cross from the Swiss rushes straight through the box into the goal.



Both teams start in a classic 4-4-2. At Bayern, Hernández moves to the left for the injured Davies and De Ligt takes over at headquarters alongside Upamecano.



Here we go! The hosts are wearing all blue today, Munich wears white.


The match will be directed by referee Daniel Siebert and his assistants Jan Seidel and Rafael Foltyn. Tobias Welz is responsible for evaluating the video images.


Now Herbert Grönemeyer’s hymn “Bochum” sounds and provides goose bumps again on Castroper Straße. Also means: In a few moments this game between VfL and Bayern can finally start!


The atmosphere in the Ruhr Stadium this Sunday is great again even before kick-off. At a pleasant 24 degrees, everything is ready for a football festival at the end of the third match day of the Bundesliga.


Of course, Thomas Reis also remembers the last meeting well. “Of course we still remember our last game against FC Bayern. It was a great game from us, people are still talking about it today,” said the Bochum coach, who wants to see “heart, will and passion” from his players today. His plan for another coup against the record champions: “You have to defend well and have the courage to push into the room. Then we’ll see what comes out in the end.”


“The defeat is still in our heads,” Julian Nagelsmann admitted in the run-up to the game and made it absolutely clear: “We definitely don’t want to lose a second time.” The Bayern coach analyzed the opponent’s game in detail. “In Riemann they have a goalkeeper who plays a lot and good long balls. In the first two games he played most of the whole league again. Stöger is a very good new signing and played very well in the first few games. That means we have to be prepared for both long and short balls,” Nagelsmann believes.


The Reds will be warned despite their clear role as favourites. Because last year you traveled to Bochum as a big favorite and suffered a memorable 4-2 defeat there, in which VfL played into a real frenzy. So Bayern will be looking for revenge today.


Let’s take a look at the starting line-up: There is only one change in the home side that made Philipp Förster’s debut in the starting XI. Jordi Osei-Tutu rotates onto the bench. On the other hand, Julian Nagelsmann changes his starting eleven for the first time and brings in three new ones. Alphonso Davies and Jamal Musiala are missing, Serge Gnabry rotates to the bench. Matthijs de Ligt makes his starting XI debut, with Leroy Sané and Kingsley Coman also starting.


Bochum are still without a point after two games. Although the performances against Mainz (1: 2) and Hoffenheim (2: 3) were at least temporarily very respectable, in the end it was not enough for something countable. It was particularly bitter last weekend when they had already led 2-0 in Sinsheim and just before the end they lost 2-3. Bayern, on the other hand, are back in full swing and, after beating Frankfurt (6-1) and Wolfsburg (2-0), are already the only team in the league without a loss. If the vest remains white today, FCB will climb back to the top of the table.


Hello and welcome to the second part of Bundesliga Sunday! At the end of the third match day, VfL Bochum has FC Bayern Munich as guests. At 5:30 p.m. the ball rolls in the Ruhr Stadium!
