Munich lost 2-3 in the away match against Bochum in the 22nd round of the 2023-2024 German Bundesliga held at the Bonovia Ruhrstadion in Bochum, Germany on the 19th (Korean time).

Munich, who had lost 0-3 to leader Leverkusen in the previous 21st round, faced the bitter situation of suffering consecutive losses for the first time in the regular league this season.

This is their third consecutive loss in official games, including a 0-1 loss in the first leg of the round of 16 of the 2023-2024 UEFA Champions League (UCL) against Lazio (Italy) on the 15th.

Munich (50 points), 2nd place in the regular league, failed to accumulate points, and the point gap with 1st place Leverkusen (58 points) widened to 8, putting a red light on in chasing the lead.

Munich played against Bochum, a mid-tier team, with Kim Min-jae and Matthijs Delicht as central defenders.

The first goal belonged to Munich.

In the 14th minute of the first half, Jamal Musiala's left-footed shot was blocked by the goalkeeper, and Leon Goretzka, who caught the ball, passed it back to Musiala.

Musiala then succeeded in scoring by finishing with his right foot from the right side of the goal area.

Munich failed to score an additional goal in the 19th minute of the first half when Harry Kane's right-footed shot went over the crossbar while he was alone with the goalkeeper in the penalty area.

Then, in the 20th minute of the first half, a commotion broke out with a tennis ball flying from the stands, and the game was stopped for about 15 minutes.

It was a protest by fans opposing the German Football League (DFL), which runs the Bundesliga, in December last year after it decided through a club vote to sell a portion of its broadcasting rights to external investment capital.

The game resumed after the stadium was cleared, and as Munich's right fullback Nusair Mazrawi was injured in the 33rd minute of the first half, Dayot Upamecano was brought on.

In a chaotic situation, Bochum scored the equalizer in the 38th minute of the first half with a right-footed shot from the right side of the penalty area by Japanese striker Takuma Asano during a counterattack.

Kim Min-jae caught up, but could not prevent the score.

Bochum finished the first half 2-1 with Keben Schlottebeck's header from a corner kick situation in the 44th minute of the first half.

Munich faced the worst situation in the second half when Upamecano was sent off in the 31st and even gave up a penalty kick.

Upamecano, who was fighting for an aerial ball in Bochum's left cross situation, was judged to have hit his opponent with his elbow and was given a yellow card, and Upamecano, who had already received a card in the first half, was sent off due to accumulated warnings.

Upamecano, who was also sent off in the first leg of the UCL round of 16 against Lazio on the 15th, experienced the disgrace of being sent off for two consecutive games.

Bayern Munich was dragged 1-3 by conceding a penalty kick in the 33rd minute of the second half, but Kane scored a chasing goal in the 42nd minute of the second half, but was unable to turn the game around.
