Loew predicts Bayern backlash

13 May 2012 15:08

Germany coach Joachim Loew believes Bayern Munich will bounce back against Chelsea after their DFB Pokal final thrashing.

Jupp Heynckes' men looked horribly out of sorts in Berlin as they were thrashed 5-2 in the final by Borussia Dortmund on Saturday.

Bayern suffered a fifth successive defeat at the hands of their great rivals in all competitions after Robert Lewandowski netted a hat-trick following earlier strikes from Shinji Kagawa and Mats Hummels.

While Germany boss Loew felt that Bayern got what they deserved, he does not believe that their hopes of claiming a fifth Champions League title will have have been affected by what happened at the Olympiastadion.

"I never expected this result," Loew said. "But especially based on the second half it's a deserved victory.

"Dortmund always show plenty of bite against Bayern, but I think we'll see a huge reaction from Bayern against Chelsea next weekend."

Bayern host Chelsea in the Champions League final at the Allianz Arena in Munich on Saturday.
