Soccer – Freiburg im Breisgau – After the Cup: Streich hopes for a quick Bayern reaction – Sport

Freiburg (AP) – Freiburg coach Christian Streich expects a sporty defiant reaction from FC Bayern Munich after its historic second-round defeat in the DFB Cup on Wednesday. “A champion goes down on the boards, grudgingly respects the opponent’s victory, shakes himself, recovers for two or three days, gets up and strikes back,” said the 56-year-old one day after the German record champions went 5-0 at Borussia Mönchengladbach. “That’s exactly what I expect from Bayern. Simply because it has often been the case in the past. Otherwise it wouldn’t be Bayern.”

The Munich had conceded the highest cup defeat in their club history in Borussia-Park. “When you walked down from the pitch you already had the feeling that something new was being built up again,” said Streich, who will be a guest in the Bayern league with the sports club in a week and a half. “They are of enormous quality. They don’t look for mistakes in others, but in themselves,” he emphasized: “I hope that next week you will be able to act out certain things so that you don’t have to act out everything in ten days.”
