Is he more hyped than Bojan Krkic was? He had no clear physical advantage against his opponents and his goal-scoring record at youth level was also absurd if I recall correctly.
I'd say so, yes. Every time he broke some record or scored a hat-trick it has been widely reported in German media. Bild even wrote about his transfer in 2016 when he was twelve. A lot of Dortmund fans I know have had today's date in the back of their minds for months. The only one I can think of in recent years who was more hyped in his youth was Neymar.

Schalke already down against Wolfsburg. They are so.. so.. lucky that the bottom of the table has quite a weak year and Mainz, Cologne, Bielfeld aren't much better.

Bayerns defence has been pretty poor throughout this season and they should have easily conceded way more goals if it wasn´t Neuer. You clearly see how good he is and also how much impact he alone has on that team. What a goal keeper.

0 shots on target for Bayern so far, looks like a good job from Bremen so far.

Deserved lead, Bayern offered close to nothing. The hole Kimmich has left is gigantic.

That Bayern lineup looks wild:
This is not how they play. When Hernandez got injured, Alaba was shifted to LB, Martinez to CB and Goretzka took the position in midfield.

Germans are boring.Al they have is their "superiority" in football.

Whta's the story with Javi Martinez? I thought they were going to release him?
Bayern allowed him to leave if another club wanted him. Unfortunately, no other club approached Javi Martinez, and Bayern were already happy to keep him in the club.

No Moukoko in the starting lineup #Favreout.

Witsel, Can and Dahoud in the same lineup either means he's going with a very conservative midfield trio or he's reverting to a back three, despite Meunier really looking out of his depth as a wingback in previous games.



Also a fabulous goal from Poulsen to equalize for Leipzig.

Ödegaard might beat both in the U17 bracket.

A game like today underlines once more how important Kimmich is to this team. He's part of our current trifecta of irreplaceables, with Neuer and Lewandowski. Or maybe a 'quadfecta' with Müller as the fourth, since nobody else does the whole package he offers; but we just have more options in attack, and close to zero in DM. Of course today's lineup was pretty experimental from the start, with Javi, and later, after Hernandez coming off, Goretzka as the only nominal DM, and Musiala as another attacking midfielder. Maybe we underestimated Bremen's defensive stability and sharpness on the counter.

Typical Favre performance. Neither bad, nor very good. The difference is Hertha have the midtable Messi and Dortmund only have Haaland.

Midtable Messi...lol
How do you rate Cunha's potential?
To be honest I don't watch a ton of Hertha. My perception of him is that he's a great player if he's the star of the team with the license to be selfish or flashy, but will struggle in a bigger team, where he has to be more disciplined and consistent. That would also explain why Leipzig got rid of him.

Haaland is the fecking terminator. Obviously that was naive from the defender, but good lord, he had no right getting in front of him there.

Moukoko is getting ready.. it's happening! A little short in time for his customary hattrick though.

The prospect of conceding to a 16 year old seems to have put some life back into Hertha. Dortmund barely had the ball since he came on. Or maybe it's Schulz :lol:

Possibly, but I remember seeing videos of Neymar when social media or youtube weren't really a thing. He must have been 14 or something.
Anyway, I'm really happy for Moukoko to get his first game.
