Bayern win 3-0 in Bielefeld and can complete the 10th championship in a row with a victory on Saturday in a direct duel with “by virtue” of Dortmund.
But the match is overshadowed by the serious head injury suffered by Bielefeld midfielder Fabian Kunze (23). Bayern defender Tanguy Nianzou (19) launches shoulder to shoulder in a header duel just before the break, catching his opponent in the process.
Kunze is treated on the pitch for a few minutes, then carried off the pitch on a stretcher and taken to hospital.
The club tweeted a little later: “We can already give Fabian Kunze a cautious green light: his condition is stable and he is better. As a safety measure, he is now being taken to hospital for further examinations.
Fortunately for Nianzou: the referee Jöllenbeck only shows him a yellow card after his foul.
BamS referee Thorsten Kinhöfer (53): “It’s clearly not a bad decision, it’s dark yellow. He doesn’t hit his opponent. If there had been red, the VCR wouldn’t have intervened.
Coach Julian Nagelsmann replaces Nianzou at half-time – and justifies it after the final whistle at DAZN with clear words: “It was an educational measure. It’s a red card for me. He has to learn to enter more carefully.”
His colleague Frank Kramer (49) also specifies: “Clear red card”.
Another serious head injury, Bielefeld strikes again!
Fabian Klos (34) had a serious head accident just two weeks ago. In the game against Stuttgart (1:1), he crashed into teammate Alessandro Schöpf (28) in added time, was taken to the clinic and operated on his head. According to information from BILD, Klos suffered a fractured skull!

A week later in the 4-0 defeat at Wolfsburg, defender Cedric Brunner (28) got into a duel with Wolves striker Jonas Wind (23) after a corner. The two players bang their heads violently. Brunner remains lying down and is carried off the pitch on a stretcher.
Against Bayern, there is a serious header accident before the serious injury. Guilherme Ramos (24) and Dayot Upamecano (23) are going together, but both can continue to play.
Laursen with an own goal (10th), Gnabry (45th + 7th) and Musiala (86th) score Bayern’s goals.
