Weary Munich foiled at home again

An uninspired display against a Köln side whose ambition extended to nothing more than a draw cost Bayern two more Bundesliga points on Saturday, as the Bavarians go into the two-week break for internationals eight points adrift of league leaders Bayer Leverkusen.

The 69,000 full house at the Allianz Arena were served meagre fare in the first half as the home side struggled to prise apart the visitors’ compact defence, although Bastian Schweinsteiger was unlucky to see not one but two headers come back off the bar. Tiredness caught up with the men from Munich in a thoroughly disappointing second period as a poor quality match ended in stalemate.
