Reds boast impressive Cup record against Lautern

Postby FCBayernNews » Wed Oct 25, 2006 12:35 pm


Bayern's German Cup second round tie with Kaiserslautern at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday evening will be the eighth meeting between the sides in tournament history, with the Reds from Munich boasting a far superior record to the Red Devils from the Palatinate region. Indeed, Bayern have only lost one of the previous seven fixtures.

The first two Cup ties between FCB and FCK were second round fixtures. The game on 20 February 1971 ended in a 1-1 draw after extra time, the legendary Gerd Müller scoring for Bayern. Replays were the order of the day at the time, with Munich thrashing the Red Devils 5-0 in the re-match, the irresistible Müller scoring all his side's goals.

<b>Solitary defeat</b>

Nine years later, in November 1980, the sides were drawn together again in a game destined to bring Kaiserslautern's solitary victory to date. Goals from Hans-Peter Briegel and Hans-Günter Neues saw the Red Devils home 2-1, with Klaus Augenthaler on target for visiting Bayern.

Munich took revenge in the 1985-6 quarter-finals, defeating Lautern 3-0 with goals from Lothar Matthäus, Augenthaler and Roland Wohlfahrt, before going on to claim an eighth Cup triumph.

<b>Penalty drama</b>

In 1997-8, and with Bayern now coached by Giovanni Trapattoni, the Reds battled to a 2-1 victory in the Palatinate against Otto Rehhagel's newly-promoted Red Devils, who would go on to claim a sensational Bundesliga crown that term. Christian Nerlinger and Carsten Jancker struck for Bayern with Ciriaco Sforza replying for Lautern. Curiously enough, all three goalscorers ended up playing for both clubs at some point in their careers.

The result was an even closer affair in the 2001-2 quarter-finals when Bayern sneaked through on penalties after 120 goalless minutes, but the trophy eluded the Bavarians that season as they fell 2-0 against Schalke at the semi-final stage.

<b>FCK a good omen</b>

The most recent clash came on 31 May 2003, the first time the sides had met in the Cup final itself. Michael Ballack (2) and Claudio Pizarro hit the target for Bayern, with Miroslav Klose's reply insufficient to prevent the men from Munich lifting the trophy at the Berlin Olympic stadium for the 11th time.

Bayern clearly enjoy taking on FCK in the knock-out competition: the Cup has ended up in the Säbener Strasse trophy cabinet on four occasions after Munich have overcome Kaiserslautern en route to the final.
