Historic upsets and a record victory

Postby FCBayernNews » Thu Aug 10, 2017 11:15 am

"The magic of the cup," is a phrase often heard when the minnows hand out a shock defeat to one of the established names. The DFB German Cup, featuring seeded early rounds and guaranteeing lower division sides a crack at the big boys, has traditionally thrown up a clutch of surprise results. Even Bayern have not been immune to a cup upset or two over the years. Prior to Saturday’s first round meeting with third-tier Chemnitzer FC, fcbayern.com has been looking back at the 17-time cup winners' highs and lows in the competition, uncovering one or two unwelcome memories.

FV 09 Weinheim were FCB's conquerors in the first round of the 1990/91 season. The visitors from Munich had five members of the Germany squad that had won the World Cup in Italy that summer in their starting line-up, yet they were beaten 1-0 by the fourth-division amateurs. The hero was Thomas "Schwechi" Schwechheimer, scorer of the decisive spot-kick past keeper Raimond Aumann.

Bayern set out the following season bent on revenge as second division Homburg visited the Olympic stadium. With the home support in full voice, no-one expected the Saarland outfit to pose insurmountable problems, but the Reds fell flat on their faces for the second season in a row. A closely-fought match went into extra time before the home side trudged off smarting from a 4-2 defeat. Brazil star Mazinho claimed a brace for the Bavarians.

Two seasons later, early in the 1994/95 campaign, Bayern and new boss Giovanni Trapattoni travelled to the Nuremberg Frankenstadion, not to face their Bavarian arch-rivals but rather the minnows of TSV Vestenbergsgreuth. The lower-division men humbled the world-class ensemble from the state capital and the gulf between the two sides was nowhere to be seen. Roland Stein's winner saw the Bavarian regional league outfit through to the second round.

The last cup upset at the hands of a lower league outfit hit Bayern in the 2000/01 season. The cup holders, away to third division Magdeburg in front of a sell-out 26,000 crowd at Ernst Grube Stadium, came under pressure and fell behind in the 66th minute to an Adolphus Ofodile strike. Hasan Salihamidzic scored the equaliser shortly after coming on as a substitute, sending the game into extra-time. With no further goals in the additional 30 minutes, the game went to penalties. Magdeburg keeper Miroslav Dreszer was in outstanding form, saving penalties from Jens Jeremies and Giovane Elber to seal a shock 5-3 triumph for Magdeburg. The bitter and embarrassing defeat was Bayern's fourth in ten years against rank outsiders in the early stages of the cup.
