It wasn't Eintracht Braunschweig's night at home in the first round of the DFB-Pokal, but at least they look like a team that can stay up in the Bundesliga.2. They put up a solid showing against German football's biggest side, but ultimately fell 3-0 to Bayern Munich, who created two penalties in the first half and killed off the game late with a third goal from open play.
Thomas Müller was the clear man of the match, and he continues to make a case for staying in the starting lineup even on the rare occasion that Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben are both healthy and on form. The German international created both of the first half penalties, scored by Mario Gomez and Bastian Schweinsteiger, then added a goal of his own to seal the victory for Bayern.
Eintracht Braunschweig has already started their Bundesliga.2 campaign and has maximum points from their first two matches. Bayern Munich kicks off their Bundesliga campaign this weekend against Borussia Mönchengladbach.
