Bayern Munich lacklustre in Leverkusen as Pep's men fall flat

Bayer Leverkusen moved up to third in the Bundesliga thanks to a 2-0 win over Bayern Munich on Saturday evening.
The ESPN FC crew give their take on the SPI prediction that gives Barcelona a slight edge over Bayern Munich in the semifinals of the Champions League.
The ESPN FC crew discuss the latest power rankings which see Real Madrid jump Bayern Munich for the second spot.

"The Bundesliga is over," proclaimed Pep Guardiola on the eve of Bayern Munich's 2-0 defeat at Bayer Leverkusen, and judging by the selected team, the only concern for him was to come through the game unscathed without any fresh injuries.

In a game best quickly forgotten, the champions slipped to their third league defeat of the season. Hakan Calhanoglu's sublime free kick set the hosts on their way, while Julian Brandt's counterattack goal sealed the deserved three points for the home side.

Pep Guardiola's Barcelona return will not be met with universal welcome

For the first time since leaving the Catalan giants, Bayern Munich head coach Pep Guardiola will face FC Barcelona in a competitive fixture.
ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti believes Pep Guardiola's Bayern Munich have the advantage over Barcelona, citing Guardiola's vast knowledge of Barca.
Barcelona manager Luis Enrique praises Pep Guardiola's abilities, and says it will be special to face him in the Champions League semifinal.

Supporter, ball boy, youth team player, ideologue, captain, coach, legend -- enemy.

He is now; for some, he already was.

Pep Guardiola returns to the Camp Nou on Wednesday night. He was there in March, hiding a big smile behind an even bigger scarf while sitting alongside his parents and his friend Manuel Estiarte as Lionel Messi nutmegged Manchester City's James Milner. He was there as a fan -- he had to abandon his original idea of heading to the game by foot, following the route he trod when he...

Holger Badstuber shines as Bayern Munich put Shakhtar to the sword

ESPN FC's Mark Donaldson recaps a historic performance by Bayern Munich against Shakhtar Donetsk.
A third-minute penalty kick for Shakhtar's Olexandr Kucher put Bayern Munich in complete control as they went on to a 7-nil triumph over Shakhtar Donetsk.
Thomas Muller scored a brace and inspired his Bayern Munich side to a staggering 7-nil win over Shakhtar Donetsk at the Allianz Arena.
A third-minute red card for Shakhtar's Olexandr Kucher put Bayern Munich in complete control as they went on to a 7-nil triumph over Shakhtar Donetsk.
Shakhtar's Olexandr Kucher received the fastest red card in Champions League history in the third minute against Bayern Munich.

Bayern Munich cruised into the quarterfinals -- thrashing Shakhtar Donetsk 7-0 and recording their biggest ever Champions League win in a one-sided last 16 second-leg clash.

The game was up for the nine-time Ukrainian champions as early as the third minute when the visitors were reduced to 10 men after Olexandr Kucher hacked down Mario Gotze in the box. The Shakhtar stopper created a new record by receiving the earliest red card in Champions League history. Thomas Muller coolly converted the resulting...

Bayern Munich untested in easy victory over Shakhtar

ESPN FC's Mark Donaldson recaps a historic performance by Bayern Munich against Shakhtar Donetsk.

Three quick thoughts from Wednesday night's Champions League round-of-16 second leg in Munich, where Bayern Munich ensured passage to the quarterfinals with a 7-0 trouncing of Shakhtar Donetsk.

1. Easy win of no help to Bayern

They were longing for a game. Finally, an opponent to challenge them, a side to test their limits. Bayern Munich are still haunted by their 2014 Champions League semifinal Real Madrid trauma, when they suffered a 4-0 home defeat in the second leg and lost their title to...

How Bayern Munich have changed Arjen Robben

Relive some of the best action from the first legs of the Champions League Round of 16, where Arsenal fell to AS Monaco while Chelsea and PSG are all level.

When Arjen Robben joined Bayern Munich in August 2009, the Bavarians were very much second-division as far as the European elite was concerned, and the Bundesliga was a fun league that turned out deliciously-random champions (Stuttgart in 2007, Wolfsburg 2009) but mattered exclusively to domestic audiences.

Five years, three Champions League finals and one European Cup for Bayern later, it's very hard to say whether the Dutch winger has truly changed the club. Hard, because Bayern have not relied...

Pep Guardiola, Bayern look to avoid another Real shock against Shakhtar

"I got it wrong man. I got it totally wrong. It's a monumental f--- up. A total mess. The biggest f--- up of my life as a coach."

This expletive-ridden rant could have been uttered by the Brazil coach following Germany's 7-1 World Cup thumping or by a succession of England football (or cricket) coaches after their latest humiliation, but no -- the above came from none other than Bayern Munich's Pep Guardiola after last season's embarrassing Champions League debacle against Real Madrid.
