Harry Kane & Bayern Munich stuck in ‘horror movie that won’t end’ as Leon Goretzka admits he doesn’t ‘believe’ Bundesliga champions will retain the title after Bochum upset

Leon Gortezka feels like Bayern Munich are trapped in a never-ending horror film amid their disastrous run of results.

Bayern appear to have crashed out of the Bundesliga title race and are in danger of elimination from the Champions League following a woeful run of three straight losses, with summer signing Harry Kane among those to have suffered an alarming dip in form in recent weeks. The reigning German champions lost 3-2 to Bochum on Sunday and Goretzka admitted his side must now “question everything”.

“It feels like a horror film that doesn’t stop. Everything is just going against us at the moment,” he told DAZN. “We can now stand up again and say that we got into the game well. That’s us also, but now you feel stupid for limiting yourself to half an hour. In the end, we tried everything with one less man, so you can’t blame us. At the end of the day, it’s individual mistakes we make – and too many of them. At the moment, I think we have to question everything.”

Asked if he “believes” his team can still win the title, Goretzka said: “Not right now. I’m being honest about that.”

The Bavarian team are now eight points behind unbeaten Bundesliga leaders Bayer Leverkusen, while they trail Lazio 1-0 after the first leg of their last-16 tie in the Champions League after their midweek defeat in Rome. Coach Thomas Tuchel has admitted that challenging for the German title is now “not realistic” but despite the growing pressure on the manager, CEO Jan-Christian Dreesen has insisted he will not be sacked this week.

Tuchel will remain in charge of the German giants for their match against RB Leipzig in the Bundesliga next week, which will be followed by a trip to Freiburg on March 1, four days before they take on Lazio in the second leg of their last-16 Champions League tie.
