1.FC Koeln 1 – Bayern Munich 4


========================================================
Germany international TONI KROOS, the 22-year-old midfielder who finished this domestic campaign with four goals and 10 assists for Bayern Munich, tangles with 1.FC Koeln midfielder KEVIN PEZZONI (6) during the very last match of the Bundesliga season at the sold-out RheinEnergieStadion in North Rhine-Westphalia.

5/5/2012
Bundesliga
Spieltag # 34

1 – 1.FC KOELN ————————– Novakovic 63′
4 – BAYERN MUNICH ————— Mueller 34′, 85′, own goal 52′, Robben 54′

A pair of quick goals not so long after the halftime whistle effectively broke the home side’s ability, if not will, to resist as visiting record German champion and 2012 UEFA Champions League Finalist BAYERN MUNICH cruised to a 4-1 victory over relegation-bound 1.FC KOELN on the very last day of the 2011/12 Bundesliga season.

The hosts could have earned a playoff tie instead of automatic relegation with a victory, no matter what the result between TSG 1899 Hoffenheim and SC Hertha Berlin from the German capital city, but it was not to be.

France World Cup winger FRANCK RIBERY, so influential all season long to the Bavarian side, floated a lovely ball from the right flank that found Germany World Cup winger THOMAS MUELLER all alone at the far post in the 34th minute and left 1.FC Koeln goalkeeper MICHAEL RENSING absolutely no chance. In the 52nd minute, the Fabulous Frenchman created havoc with a run down the left wing generated the low cross that the unfortunate 1.FC Koeln captain PEDRO GEROMEL turned into his own net on the ricochet. Ribery finishes this term with a career-high 12 goals for Bayern Munich to go along with 16 assists in the German top flight, then.

Holland World Cup winger ARJEN ROBBEN then registered his 12th goal in the Bundesliga this season made the score three-nil for Bayern Munich after a splendid pass from Germany international midfielder TONI KROOS in the 52nd minute.

========================================================

Germany World Cup winger LUKAS PODOLSKI, on his final appearance for 1.FC Koeln before his high-profile transfer this summer to London-based FC Arsenal in the English Premier League, engineered one last goal for the home fans to cheer shortly after the hour. Second half substitute and Slovenia World Cup striker MILIVOJE NOVAKOVIC side-footed home the precise, low cross from seven yards and scored his fifth Bundesliga goal in the 63rd minute. But things would only get signifcantly worse.

First the news arrived from Berlin that SC Hertha had gone ahead by two goals against 10-man TSG Hoffenheim at the Olympiastadion.

And then Mueller grabbed his second goal of the game with what can only be described as a cheeky backheel in the 85th minute after a low cross from Brazil international fullback RAFINHA, one of three replacements sent on after the break by Bayern Munich trainer Jupp Heynckes; the Golden Boot winner from the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa concludes his Bundesliga campaign with seven goals for Bayern Munich, including three in the last two matches.

In the end, as a result of the sheer stupidity of a small minority of 1.FC Koeln supporters at the RhienEnergieStadion, the match referee was forced to order the two sides off the pitch early.

========================================================

========================================================
Germany World Cup winger LUKAS PODOLSKI (10), the former Bayern Munich attacker and highly-experienced international who shot a career high 18 goals in the Bundesliga this season for 1.FC Koeln, has been purchased by English Premier League side FC Arsenal for the reported transfer fee of 13.5 million Euros from relegated 1.FC Koeln.
========================================================

1.FC KOELN : Rensing – Brecko, McKenna, Geromel, Eichner – Lanig (Buchtmann 69′), Pezzoni – Riether, Peszko – Jajalo (Novakovic 46′), Podolski

BAYERN MUNICH : Neuer – Lahm, Tymoshchuk, Boateng, Contento – Schweinsteiger, Kroos (Alaba 69′) – Robben (Rafinha 75′), Mueller, Ribery (Badstuber 71′) – Gomez

    Assistants to this game really got it cheap, either with simulated or fantasy smoke, an event like this discoordinated costed around 350 lifes in May 24, 1964, Lima, Peru. Locked doors plus tear gas, over furious galleries was the terrible addition, the stampede ended in the metal locked doors and formed human shapes in them with the corpses, a massacre. This is a 1st world people in a game broadcasted around the planet. No exemplarily sanctions? Is madness and stupidity globalizing too? Throwing smoke bombs is on fashion now 2012, are we waiting for a new dantesque show?
