Bayern suffer Hamburg friendly defeat

Last Updated: Wednesday, July 20, 2011 - 08:45

Munich: Bayern Munich went down to a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Bundesliga rivals Hamburg in a pre-season tournament in Mainz on Tuesday evening.

Bayern`s evening got off to a terrible start, with an error in judgement from goalkeeper Manuel Neuer allowing 19-year-old South Korean Son Heung-Min to put Hamburg in front inside the opening six minutes.

Neuer has had a difficult start to life in Bavaria, with a section of the club`s support refusing to accept the signing of a player who is a self-confessed fan of Schalke 04.

The German international did redeem himself with a couple of impressive saves but Son went on to double Hamburg`s lead from close-range just before half-time of a game played over two 30-minute periods.

Toni Kroos pulled a goal back for Jupp Heynckes` charges, but Hamburg held on to win and will play Borussia Dortmund in the final of the tournament being played at Mainz`s new Coface Arena home on Wednesday.
The reigning Bundesliga champions beat the hosts 1-0 in the tournament`s other game, meaning Bayern and Mainz will meet in a play-off for third place.
