Bochum beat 10-man Bayern Munich to push Thomas Tuchel

Champions Bayern Munich lost 3-2 at Bochum on Sunday, their third straight loss in all competitions and eight points behind Bundesliga leaders Bayer Leverkusen.

The Bavarians took a 13th-minute lead when Jamal Musiala scored from a tight angle after Dayot Upamecano was sent off for the second straight match after his dismissal in Wednesday’s Champions League loss to Lazio.

However, Bochum scored twice before halftime through Takuma Asano and Keven Schlotterbeck to complete a spectacular comeback and put additional pressure on Thomas Tuchel, though Bayern’s top executive claimed his job is safe for now.

“Now this does not look very realistic,” Tuchel added. We believed till the finish last season and were rewarded. So we’ll keep trying.”

“That happens after every defeat,” he said of his team’s third loss in eight days and the pressure applied. How we played matters. The ‘how’ was good today, therefore today’s 90 minutes are different from Lazio’s second half or Leverkusen’s game.”

Tuchel’s team is second with 50 points, eight behind Leverkusen and four ahead of VfB Stuttgart. Bochum climbed up to 11th with 25 points and appears safe from relegation.

“Of course,” Dreesen told reporters, when asked if Tuchel would still be in charge. I dislike massive coach-backing remarks. Most run out after a week. However, this is not a current concern. We must focus on our future matches.”

Bayern midfielder Leon Goretzka was more pessimistic. “It feels like an endless horror film. Everything is against us right now, he said.
