Bayern Munich's home form gives confidence of comeback versus Porto

Philipp Lahm and Thomas Muller of Bayern Munich remain calm despite going into their Champions League quarterfinal second leg 3-1 down against Porto.

A week is a long time in politics and football.

Before Bayern Munich's shock 3-1 Champions League defeat in Porto, chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge waxed lyrical about coach Pep Guardiola: "Pep doesn't just have a plan A, B or C; he's got the complete alphabet down from top to bottom."

Bayern fans will hope Pep also has a Plan P up his sleeve for Porto. Ahead of what according to Manuel Neuer is the "biggest game of the season," Bayern have serious work to do to keep their treble hopes alive and...

Sebastian Rode rises to the occasion as Bayern ease past Hoffenheim

Sebastian Rode made the most of a rare start to lead Bayern to an easy win.

Bayern Munich moved 13 points clear at the top of the Bundesliga with a comfortable 2-0 victory at Hoffenheim on Saturday.

In a turbulent week that saw the Bavarian giants crash to a Champions League defeat in Porto and then lose the services of world-respected medic Dr. Hans-Wilhelm Muller-Wohlfahrt, Bayern got back on track courtesy of Sebastian Rode's opener and a late own goal to secure the three points.

At times, the game resembled a preseason friendly with Bayern in cruise control ahead...

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...

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...

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...
