Bayern's blues continue as Bochum inflict further misery with shock victory

Thomas Tuchel’s side have now been defeated in three consecutive games in all competitions, as Bochum ran out 3-2 winners tonight. It is the first time the Bavarians have lost 3 games in a row in all competitions since May 2015.
In the torrential rain and wind, Bayern Munich's misery continued on from last Saturday's setback against Bayer Leverkusen with defeat to Bochum this evening. Jamal Musiala opened the scoring inside the opening quarter of an hour. The 20-year-old thundered the ball past Riemann and under the crossbar with a powerful drive.

After a brief stoppage for fans' DFL investor protests, Bochum flipped the game on its head. Holding off the challenge from Kimmich, Losilla fed Takuma Asano who beat Neuer convincingly with a rasping strike inside the lower left post. Six minutes later Kevin Stöger's corner was on the money. His namesake Kevin Schlotterbeck rose highest in the box. Neuer stood no chance against the thumping header and Bochum's Can-Can inspired goal song sent the home crowd into delirium.

Bochum made one change at the break replacing Oermann with Gamboa in defence. The action was haulted once more with further protests but Bochum remained composed even without possession. Substitute Leroy Sané came closest early in the second half but some Bernardo bravery provided the heroic block.

Things suddenly went from bad to worse for Bayern just before the 80th minute mark. The already yellow-carded Dayot Upamecano connected with Schlotterbeck's head in the box. The Frenchman was sent off for a second time in a week, as Bochum's Stöger tucked the resulting spot-kick away. Bayern managed to snatch a late lifeline through an unusually quiet Harry Kane after some hard work from Mathys Tel. However, it would come too late for Die Rekordmeister as the Bavarian giants fell to defeat after some stunning last gasp saves from Manuel Riemann.
