Bochum hosted Bayern Munich on Saturday and pulled off one of the shocks of the season with a 4-2 win.
Despite having less than half the number of points like Bayern Munich, it seems that Bochum has come prepared to give the league leaders a run for their money from the start.
According to a report, Robert Lewandowski found success in visitors early despite falling in the same movement. Shortly thereafter, however, things changed.
A strong counter-attack saw the athletes equalize when Christopher Antwi-Adjei hit Niklas Süle’s head and wrapped up his effort past Sven Ulreich.
His strike then kicked off a good run as the athletes found many ways to use the weaker defense in Bayern.
A handball from Dayot Upamecano allowed Jürgen Locadia to give his team the lead from the field and then a few nutmegs and long strikes from Cristian Gamboa and Gerrit Holtmann saw Bayern score four goals in the first half since 1976.
Over time Bochum’s reign continued and they came close to adding more to their numbers as the likes of Thomas Müller, Leroy Sané, and Kingsley Coman struggled to secure their touchdown.
Lewandowksi managed to make things a two-goal game with about 15 minutes left but the first half was much worse.
The result means Dortmund have a chance to close the gap to six points and Bochum move up to 11th.
