Ulreich a ‘godsend’ for Bayern thumbnail

Mark Lovell Jupp Heynckes chose to hail the “exceptional” goalkeeping of “godsend” Sven Ulreich as Bayern Munich cruised into the DFB Pokal final with a thumping 6-2 win at Bayer Leverkusen. The outgoing Bayern manager also called the game a “footballing masterclass” as his Treble-seeking side took the lead after only 125 seconds when Robert Lewandowski got a faint touch on Javi Martinez’s drive from just outside the box. Bayern’s top scorer grabbed his second inside the opening ten minutes — his 38th goal in 42 games this season — with a composed finish after fine play from Franck Ribery on the left flank.

Up 3-0 from last week’s first leg in Turin, Madrid conceded to Mario Mandzukic’s header after 90 seconds, with the Juve forward making it 2-0 on the night with a similar header eight minutes before half-time.

No contact with PSG over transfer thumbnail

Ian Holyman Fabinho has denied he has had contact with Paris Saint-Germain and says he is focused on getting Monaco into next season’s Champions League.
