Mainz 3-1 Bayern Munich: Boss Julian Nagelsmann angered by defeat for champions

Robert Lewandowski challenges Mainz players
Bayern’s Robert Lewandowski scored his 34th league goal of the season in the defeat

Bayern Munich manager Julian Nagelsmann said his title-winning side must consider “the badge on our chest” after a 3-1 defeat at Mainz.

Bayern, who sealed a 10th consecutive Bundesliga crown last week, were well beaten on a day where Mainz also hit the woodwork four times.

“I think we always need a certain basic passion in our game, which we didn’t have today,” said Nagelsmann.

“There are too many defeats, too many in the same manner.”

The 34-year-old added: “To not go to the limit in every situation is human after the tenth title in a row, but we still wear the badge on our chest.”

Bayern’s 3-1 win over second-placed Borussia Dortmund last week sealed the title in emphatic style.

But here Germany Under-21 striker Jonathan Burkardt and French defender Moussa Niakhate gave ninth-placed Mainz an early 2-0 lead after exploiting holes in Bayern’s defence.

Robert Lewandowski rolled in his 34th Bundesliga goal this season for Bayern before half-time, then Leandro Barreiro struck Mainz’s third just after the break via a wicked deflection.
