It was hard to top Jurgen Klopp's announcement that he would leave Dortmund in the summer, HSV appointing Bruno Labbadia, and then involuntarily giving away the fact that BVB-bound Thomas Tuchel turned them down on Wednesday. But somehow Bayern Munich managed to do just that later that night. Going down 3-1 at FC Porto in the Champions League -- opponents Philipp Lahm had described as "not the most awkward after the draw" -- was not in the script.

Every defeat for the Bavarians is a big story, but...

Bayern Munich slipped to their first ever defeat in Portugal courtesy of three calamitous defensive lapses, losing 3-1 against FC Porto in an error-strewn Champions League quarterfinal first leg clash. Bayern, seeking a fourth successive semifinal spot, failed to recover from a horror start after Ricardo Quaresma's double-strike in the opening ten minutes. Thiago reduced the arrears just before the half hour mark, before Jackson Martinez took advantage of more comedy club defending to add a third...

Treble-seeking Bayern Munich have an immediate opportunity to put the pain of Porto behind them as they return to Bundesliga action with a tricky trip to Hoffenheim at the weekend.

After 28 games last season, Bayern were already crowned Bundesliga champions and Pep Guardiola began tinkering and rotating with the Champions League in mind. This time around, realistically, with a 10 point lead and just six Bundesliga games remaining, defeat in Hoffenheim is inconsequential and wouldn't seriously affect...

1. Porto catch Bayern cold

Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola will never be accused of taking an opponent lightly. He is far too meticulous for that. Yet his team were caught cold and made to look mortal by an opponent in Porto who were all too ready for them.

Bayern dominated possession but never mastered Porto, who defended from the front, and to devastating effect. All...

Bayern Munich's 1987 defeat to Porto the beginning of a new era

One of Bayern Munich's most painful defeats was inflicted by Porto back in 1987.

When Bayern Munich meet FC Porto in the Champions League quarterfinals Wednesday in Portugal, it will be a special game for the club's more seasoned fans.

They will remember that Porto has a special place in Bayern's history, despite the fact that the two clubs -- considering how regularly they are active in Europe -- have played surprisingly few games against each other.

The reason Porto have been important for the German club is that you could say the modern Bayern is the result of two key games,...
