Bayern Munich have called for the immediate release of team captain Mark van Bommel from international duty with the Netherlands.Bayern made the request to the Dutch Football Federation on Tuesday.“The management of Bayern Munich has asked the president of the Dutch federation to release Mark van Bommel to Munich without delay,” the reigning German champions announced. Bayern said they had made the request following talks with club doctor Hans-Wilhelm Muller-Wohlfahrt who wants to take over the treatment of van Bommel.Van Bommel was due to line up for the Netherlands in Tuesday evening’s Euro 2012 Group E qualifier against Sweden. This demand is the latest twist in a rift between Bayern and the Dutch federation with the club blaming the ‘Oranje’ for playing Arjen Robben at the World Cup despite their striker carrying a thigh injury.
Manager Capello believes more time should have been added on at the end of his side’s 0-0 draw at home to Montenegro. The Three Lions failed to score for the first time at the new Wembley Stadium since it was opened in 2007, picking up just a point against the surprise package of Group G. Speaking to ITV Sport, Capello said three minutes of stoppage time was not enough given the five substitutions in the match, and the delays due to injuries.
“I don’t like to speak about the referees, I never speak about the referees. The only one thing is five substitutions – twice the physio went on the pitch but three minutes [added time] isn’t enough,” he said.
Capello also thought his side should have scored against a team that were “really difficult to beat”.
The Italian added: “We created four or five chances, the ‘keeper saved them every time but it’s not easy to play against a team like this.
“They defended well and pressed a lot, [they were] really close to their box. We created five chances to score a goal and they shot once at goal and hit the bar.
“It was not an easy game [against] a team that were really difficult to beat.” goal.com

This is not just a derby of 9th round, but this is also one of the greatest games in country given that this is meeting between the biggest clubs in the north and south of Germany. Today’s match will be 91st league meeting between HSV and Bayern.
Both team Hamburger SV and FC Bayern Munchen did not started season well. HV is 5th, but Bayern is at 10th position in standing. It will be a hard game, but we think here there will be more than 1 goal and both teams will score. Bayern won only one of their last five visits, and that was back in November 2006. The score than was 2-1 for guest. We predict that HSV and Bayern will score minimum 1 goal.
