Hoffenheim managed to achieve a broad victory over the German champions Bayern Munich, 4-1, in the second round matches of the competition.
“It was easy for Hoffenheim to create opportunities in front of us in this confrontation,” Flick said in comments, most notably his club’s website.
“We were not as effective in the attack as is usual,” he added.
“I cannot blame the players. They did everything they could. I accept defeat.”
Bayern Munich won the European Super Cup last week at the expense of Seville, 2-1.
Thus, Bayern Munich froze at 3 points from two matches in the German League.
Bayern are preparing to face Hertha Berlin in the third round matches next week.
This is the first loss for Bayern Munich in the German league in 2020 and the first in general in various tournaments this year.
It was Bayern Munich’s last loss in 295 days.
And specifically on December 7, 2019 against Borussia Monchengladbach in the 14th round of the previous season of the German League.
