The Allianz Arena said goodbye to an era, led by the Dutch Arjen Robben and the French Franck Ribery, who said goodbye to their journey in the Bayern Munich with the achievement of the seventh consecutive title of the Bundesliga, thanks to the 5-1 win against the Eintracht Frankfurt that allowed him to ignore what happened in the other stadiums.
It was the most emotional title of recent years for Bayern. Not only because of the tension of resolving the Bundesliga on the last day but also because of the farewell of two players who have marked the last decade and who each achieved a goal the day of his farewell.
The Bayern left in tromba. In the minute 4, a pass from Thomas Müller from the half tip, the French Kingsley Coman opened the scoring with a shot to the second post inside the area. Bayern generated one occasion after another.
Rain of goals
At the beginning of the second half, as if from nowhere, came the partial draw, through Sebastian Haller, after a corner kick in the 50th minute. But Bayern, although they knew that Borussia Dortmund won in Mönchengñadbach and that a defeat I could leave it empty-handed, it did not show nerves.
At 53 Alaba again put Bayern ahead after taking advantage of a rebound after a shot by Müller. Five later, the Portuguese Renato Sanches, in an individual play, made the third and the stadium already began to celebrate the title. The Luso ran to the bench to celebrate his goal with the three players who are leaving: Rafinha, Robben and Ribery.
At game time he jumped into the Ribery field, for Coman, who hugged him on the line. In the box the president of Bayern, Uli Hoeness, could not contain the tears of emotion. Next, it was Robben's moment that replaced Gnabry.
In the 72 Ribery left the party in an almost perfect state, after dancing half defense of Eintracht in the area and score with a Vaseline. The Frenchman ran to the rostrum, took off his shirt, the whole team celebrated with him.
When the referee was going to show him the yellow card, by removing his shirt, he also hugged him and the referee accepted the hug. Later, Robben, with an empty door and a pass from Alaba, also made his goal.
Party in Munich
The stadium, from a certain moment, began to shout cries of support to the coach Niko Kovac that he has had to face in his first season the most difficult course for Bayern in recent years. Kovac, excited, began to cry on the bench.
There was talk of a transitional season, of the goodbye of Robben and Ribery. Hoeness had said that he preferred to spend a year without titles before pressing with big signings two players that the club owed them so much.
Ribery is dismissed with nine Bundesliga titles on his personal account, a record he does not share with anyone. Robben leaves with eight. There is still, in a week, the final of the German Cup against RB Leipzig and the possibility of the double.
