Alright, I will spare you of my thoughts on this match other than to say that I believe Bayern will take out their frustrations on Bochum today...

Anyone have the probable lineups?

I would think...

Kahn - Lahm, Lucio, Demichelis, Lell - Ribery, van Bommel, Ze Roberto, Schweinsteiger - Toni, Klose

Between our snoozing on defence and the regular inability to score goals when needed, I am not sure which is more frustrating...

I'm shocked we scored first lol, but fair play you reacted to the sending off and we decided to just sit back and try and soak the pressure.

Azagouah's goal was world class.

Great fighting spirit by Bayern after going down 0:1 and Bommel getting sent off.

Despite the fact that Toni is our top striker, he misses so many chances for my liking and can't control the ball well when we have a counter attack. It is annoying.

Poldi was not even around and Klose came in with a fighting bang.

Ribery wasn't that great as well. Too many misplaced passes and one of the worst matches I've seen for him.

The best player was Lucio. He fought and fought and fought. He rallied the players forward and scored a very important goal in the first half.

I hope we play with the same fighting spirit in Getafe. If we do, we will qualify without a doubt. However, Toni needs to be more efficient upfront.

I could not agree more. It will be interesting, for sure. I expect to see Klose back starting up front in place of Podolski on Thursday.

Now they might have a few games to spare in the Bundesliga, but they certainly don't have that luxury in the UEFA Cup. All of sudden, the return leg against Getafe becomes the most important match of all at this stage of the season. One match will decide their fate in Europe. Best of luck...

Bayern really seem to play both well and poorly in stretches. Here's to hoping this is the start of a "well" stretch... A decisive win in Spain on Thursday will carry into the match with Dortmund. The BL title race is far from over but Bayern are certainly in the driver's seat.
