Initial reactions and observations

  • Bayern Munich are thru to the Round of 16 within the Champions League. Nervy previous couple of mins from the men however they were given it completed.
  • Second part used to be very mediocre. Nagelsmann wishes to take a look at recreation control as it’s been missing.
  • Seeing Sadio Mane step as much as marshal the group within the ultimate little while used to be excellent to observe. His enjoy used to be wanted.
  • Maybe Paul Wanner shouldn’t be enjoying as a LB till he’s matured a little. At 16 he used to be getting bullied somewhat too simply.
  • If Inter fail to overcome Plzen, Bayern may have to ship Barcelona to the Europa League subsequent matchday.

Halftime observations and research

  • Been a statpad recreation for Bayern Munich to this point. Not a lot going down for Plzen.
  • Thomas Muller being inexplicably subbed off is being worried. The group can’t come up with the money for extra accidents at this time.
  • Mathys Tel neglected his first probability however he’ll get extra. This is why you give youngsters mins.

Kickoff: We’re underway!

One hour till kickoff: Rotation isn’t actual, and the younger gamers are simply window dressing. Julian Nagelsmann has opted to box a most commonly full-strength Bayern Munich XI given the wounds and absences, with Thomas Muller beginning as captain up most sensible. Fans might be dissatisfied not to see any signal of Mathys Tel within the lineup.

It’s a little early within the season, however Bayern Munich are getting all of the crises out of the best way up entrance. We’ve already had the completing disaster and the training disaster, now it’s time for the harm disaster.

We’re dishonest somewhat right here as a result of no longer all seven of the primary group gamers who will leave out this night’s Champions League recreation towards Viktoria Plzen are injured, however that barely issues as a result of they may be able to’t play anyway. Important absentees come with teenage sensation Jamal Musiala, Alphonso Davies the beginning left-back, and two beginning center-backs in Lucas Hernandez and Matthijs de Ligt.

At least Thomas Muller and Joshua Kimmich are again, however will they be sufficient for Julian Nagelsmann to absolute best Plzen? Normally we’d say sure, however effects haven’t been simple to are expecting this season.

It’s Bayern time.
