Bundesliga Tactics Talk: Round 12

Kevin Trapp. It proved a genuinely weird, wild, and wonderful weekend in German football in the 2021/22 Bundesliga’s first round back from international break.

From the most unexpected Bayern upset in the Friday curtain raiser to officiating controversies galore in the two Sunday fixtures, there wasn’t a great deal about round 12 that unfolded as expected.

As always, whether something was expected or not, we’re here to cover it in the Sunday Evening weekend roundup here on Bulinews. “Tactics Talk” covers it all.

Extra draw-ups this week cover the Augsburg upset as well as the Berlin Derby. The full-match “focus” section opted for a Sunday fixture again this time.

Among many great offerings this weekend, Freiburg-Frankfurt seemed the most intriguing pick. It that sense delivered on this in most unexpected ways.
