Insipid Bayern ridden roughshod by well-drilled Foals

by Rick Joshua

This week’s report was always going to be a little different, with my being in the south stand of the Allianz Arena in Munich to watch FC Bayern live in what was arguably a modern revival of the age-old Klassiker of the 1970s against Borussia Mönchengladbach.
