The Good, The Bad and The Ugly from the weekend by @Komptrolla

The Good

Our good column once again features the Bavarians, last time out they pummeled Hamburg 5:0, but this time they had to dig deep and defend their way to a slim last gasp nerve wrecking win at Hoffenheim.

The game was poised to end at 1:1 after Jerome Boateng was given his marching orders for an early bath, some spirited display notably from the Bayern Munich midfield stood up and got counted.

Robert Lewandowski will take credit for the winner at the death, but the likes of Philip Lahm, Douglas Costa and Xabi Alonso will go home with shoulders high having put in a performance that would oust any team any day.

Pep Guardiola and his team showed how good they can be when defense is the topic, but how far can they go in Europe with their hot and cold back two?

Boateng and Benatia look fragile, Javi Martinez, when fit is a good fit but the time seems up on the Alianz Arena career of a certain Brazilian called Dante. No one has won the Bundesliga four times in a row, Bayern look the pack to send that story into history books... For good.


The Bad


Real Madrid were as bad as they could be at Sportin Gijon, not for the lack of effort to be honest but there's no excuse for a team like Madrid to draw blank at lowly Gijon.

The cumulative wage of the entire Gijon team with the coaching crew and everyone working at the Estadio el Molinon is certainly below the cost of keeping the front three of Real Madrid at the Bernabeu.

Jesé Rodriguez may have given enough reasons for Karim Benzema to remain at the club after fluffing chances that some pregnant woman would have converted without flinching. The few positives on the day had to be the commanding display of Toni Kroos and the fluidity of Luka Modric, Christiano Ronaldo look disjointed and must have been wondering what went wrong.

Credits must be given to the home side who pulled off their result of the season on the opening day, survival is inevitable with sensational concentration like that, you don't keep the Merengues from scoring and then lose focus... Any day, that was the weakest way to start a tenure, Rafa Benitez must delve into history and learn about his employers, Perez will sack a Champions League winning coach and tell journalists "we're not here to make easy decisions".



The Ugly

Is the Vidal-Tevez hangover affecting the Serie Champions? Juventus suffered the most unlikely result of the weekend, slumping to some infuriating home defeat in the hands of Udinese.

The three man defense of Barzagli, Chiellini and Bonucci labored hard all day and Allegri may now have a rethink on the formation - no Pirlo in town anymore and Pogba's eye for goal won't let him sit deep and cover.

Juventus paraded 4 strikers in 90minutes as the went in search of an equalizer that was never going to come, the team looked unbalanced all day long, agreed the new signings need time to gel but the result and the game itself explain better why Paul Pogba must not be sold if the Old Lady of Turin have their record of last season in sight.

It's not impossible for them to reach the heights and surpass it, but not with the type of horrendous home capitulation that was witnessed on Sunday. Inter struggled but won narrowly, Roma were held but Fiorentina blew Carpi away, it's too early to crown anyone but such show of ugly shame isn't the way to defend the Scudetto and challenge in Europe.
