Rampant Bayern put ten past Stuttgarter Kickers

Postby FCBayernNews » Tue Jul 21, 2009 9:30 pm

In Tuesday's friendly away to Stuttgarter Kickers, Ivica Olic and Thomas Müller both scored hat-tricks as Bayern stormed to a 10-0 victory. The match, played out to a 10,899 capacity crowd at the GAZi stadium, was dedicated to the memory of Kickers honorary president Axel Dünnwald-Metzler.

Mario Gomez (15) struck the only goal of the first half against the fourth division home side, but the floodgates opened after the interval as Olic opened his scoring account in a red jersey (58, 68, 83), and Müller also bagged three (60, 77, 81). Hamit Altintop (61), Andreas Görlitz (72) and Gomez again (86) rounded off the goal fest.

Ten missing

For the first time in pre-season, Louis van Gaal opted not to field entirely different line-ups either side of half-time. Ten FCB men were missing with injury, including Franck Ribéry, Luca Toni, Miroslav Klose and Anatoliy Tymoshchuk. That meant Philipp Lahm switching to the left, Alexander Baumjohann starting on the right of midfield, and Olic lining up alongside Gomez.

"Louis van Gall has given the lads a specific task: he wants to see them implement his tactical plan," revealed FCB director of sport Christian Nerlinger beforehand. However, against the hard-running and energetic men from Stuttgart, Munich had trouble controlling the play and the first chance fell to the home side's Dirk Prediger on six minutes.

One goal before half-time

Olic was unable to convert Bayern's first opening, but Gomez went one better on the quarter-hour, rising to head home a Danijel Pranjic cross. The Bundesliga outfit, clearly weary after three weeks in pre-season, nevertheless stamped their authority on the match now.

Cleverly letting the ball do the work, the Bavarians created chances despite the sticky hot temperatures. José Sosa (23), Olic (33) and Gomez (35, 37) all missed in front of goal, whereas the Kickers only had one memorable foray forward before the half-time whistle, a 30-yard drive from Fabian Gerster (19).

Goal fest after the break

Van Gaal sent on Rensing, Görlitz, Breno, Ottl and Altintop for the second period, with final sub Müller also joining the fray shortly afterwards. The youngster was soon in the thick of the action, bringing two good saves out of Stuttgart keeper Daniel Wagner within a minute. Olic nodded the rebound from the second of these into the empty net to make it 2-0.

The exhausted Kickers now gave up the unequal struggle and meekly accepted their fate. Munich barely let the ball out of their control, and almost every shot at the home goal went in. Müller (60, 77, 81), Altintop (61), Olic (68, 83.) and Görlitz (72) took the score along to 9-0. Swabian native Gomez had the honour of bringing up double figures with the 86th-minute goal to make the final score 10-0.
