Bayern Munich performed just like the previous Bayern, so I increase Julian Nagelsmann for you.

Bayern made positive that the one injury PSG may inflict was by means of their tempo and counter-attack. Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka have utterly – and I imply utterly – dominated PSG’s midfield. All through the match, Bayern maintained distinctive ball motion, particularly from Jamal Musiala, Joshua Kimmich and Kingsley Coman.

With Thomas Müller and Alfonso Davies on the bench, Bayern Munich needed to discover inventive methods to beat a stable PSG protection led by Sergio Ramos.

Bayern all of the sudden regarded like PSG did for a lot of the recreation: on their again foot, unable to attach passes, and making a variety of sudden errors resulting from strain. PSG kind of took Bayern’s recreation plan towards them and used it to their benefit for the final 25 minutes or so of the match. The scariest factor is that Mbappe scored two targets. Whereas each had been dominated offsides, one was one finger lengthy:

Alarm bells ought to be ringing on Säbener Straße about how shut this recreation got here to being a devastating defeat. Add to {that a} shocking second yellow for Benjamin Pavard late within the recreation, Bayern had been getting ready to collapse. Julian Nagelsmann & Co ought to solely concentrate on one factor and one factor solely: defeating PSG at dwelling in Munich.
