Bayern draw blank as poor form continues

Bayern Munich's stuttering form in pre-season continued on Saturday with a 0-0 draw at Cologne.

Bayern coach Jurgen Klinsmann sent out a strong side, including former Cologne hero Lukas Podolski.

But not even the Germany international could light up a dull and very wet afternoon in North-Rhine Westphalia with neither side creating any clear-cut chances and many of the capacity crowd of 50,000 left before the game's conclusion.

After losing 2-1 to Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday, this was the second disappointing result for Bundesliga title-favourites Bayern in a matter of days.

They at least had the chance to play, though, which is more than can be said for Dortmund, whose game with Juventus just 45 miles up the road was postponed due to the threat of severe storms.

The fixture will now be played on Sunday.

Hamburg had better weather and a better result too as a Jonathan Pitroipa goal steered them to a 1-0 win over Manchester City.

The 21-year-old was HSV's brightest player as he wowed the 32,000 fans and left the field to a standing ovation in the 70th minute.

Elsewhere, Hertha Berlin warmed up for their UEFA Cup qualifier against Nistru Otaci with a 4-2 victory over Magdeburg.

And there was a first defeat in six pre-season games for Borussia Monchengladbach, who went down 1-0 to German second division side Koblenz.
