BATE Borisov 3 – Bayern Munich 1


========================================================
Croatia international MARIO MANDZUKIC (9) of Bayern Munich, the incoming striker who has scored nine goals in all competitions for the Bavarians since arriving in the summer from Vfl Wolfsburg but still has not found the back of the net in Europe this term, and his BATE Borisov marker, the Serbian centerback MARKO SIMIC (22), leap over the courageous home side netminder ANDREI GORBUNOV (35) during the Champions League, Group F match at the Dynama Stadium in the Belarussian captial city of Minsk.

October 2, 2012
Champions League
Group F

3 – BATE BORISOV (Blr) ———– Pavlov 27′, Rodionov 78′, Bressan 90+4′
1 – BAYERN MUNICH (Ger) —— Ribery 90+1′

Who is to say what might have been had BAYERN MUNICH’s Germany international midfielder TONI KROOS, who netted such a magnificent goal for the Bavarians in their European opener only just a few weeks ago, not hit the post after successfully rounding BATE BORISOV goalkeeper ANDREI GORBUNOV in the unlucky 13th minute of the Champions League in Minsk? On the other hand, it is a fact that, sometimes, the less said the better after a truly disappointing match. And so it shall be here at this blog, then.

The bad news is that Bayern Munich’s run of nine consecutive wins to begin this 2012/13 campaign has been unceremoniously halted by an upstart Belarussian side that has now won a Champions League match at home for the very first time ever.

The good news is that France international FRANCK RIBERY, the 29-year-old winger who registered a career high 12 goals in the Bundesliga for the record German champions last term, scored his very first goal in any competition of this still-young season for Bayern Munich in the loss to BATE Borisov on the road in Minsk …
