Bayern Munich created quite a few possibilities, however it ended up being a fluke screamer that rescued the purpose. Julian Nagelsmann has some pondering to do relating to the offense — it does not look anyplace close to as fluid or assured as the primary half of the season.

  • Ryan Gravenberch could have really useful himself for extra minutes with that efficiency. Given how the remainder of the midfield is performing, he deserves extra enjoying time.
  • As soon as once more, Nagelsmann’s subs go away query marks. Why was Jamal Musiala swapped for Thomas Muller? Could not they play collectively? Why did Mathys Tel come on for Alphonso Davies, then play on the best facet the place he is not as efficient? Why swap to a back-three within the dying minutes of the sport? Plenty of inquiries to be requested within the coming days.
  • Leroy Sane seemingly being Bayern’s #2 attacking midfielder is senseless when Thomas Muller is accessible. The coach must get his priorities sorted.
  • Sleepy defending on corners virtually value Bayern quite a few occasions on this sport. Did they fireplace the set piece coach too? Who’s in cost of these items?
