Highlights: Bayern Munich (FCB) vs. Tottenham Hotspur – Transgaming

by: Adam Smith



With a 3: 1 against Spurs of Bayern, it has become the first German team to complete the CL group game perfectly. While two Bayern players in particular convinced, another proved unlucky once again. The notes and individual reviews.


Hansi Flick replaced five times. Pavard, Martinez, Coutinho, Gnabry and Perisic started for the injured Tolisso and Alaba as well as Goretzka, Müller and Lewandowski (all banks).


MANUAL NEW: Safe on Sessegnon's first degree, powerless on others. Had to intervene shortly before the final whistle against Son and solved the whole thing with a strong foot defense. In addition, a few times gave the usual safe Libero. Note: 3.


BENJAMIN PAVARD: In the 12th minute he dived free on the far post and ended the volley. Gazzaniga parried but strong. Otherwise in the first round with some wings, after the break more stable and with good duels. Rating: 3.5.


JEROME BOATENG: La Sessegnon davoneile just after the start of the game and later involuntarily put the Spurs youngster in the fall 1: 1. Generally insecure than midback colleague Martinez, but still largely solid. Rating: 3.5.


JAVI MARTINEZ (to 87.): After his mistake against Gladbach again as a reliable Abräumer on the way. The Spaniard won over 70 percent of his direct duels and could never be disturbed. Note: 3.


ALPHONSO DAVIES: Leather front and back. The vast majority of ball actions, also involved in two hits. Won almost 90 percent of his duels and received applause when he prevented 3-2 with a mega sprint against Son. Rating: 1.5.


JOSHUA KIMMICH: Focused only once when he clashed with Lo Celso. Otherwise as a team-oriented worker on the road and with the best tackling rate of 100 percent. Note: 3.


THIAGO: Especially in the first round very noticeable and committed. Defensively again with good values: The Spaniard won 66 percent of his duels and registered the entire twelve ball conquests. Rating: 2.5.


KINGSLEY COMAN (to 27th): The game started off with good luck, but the Frenchman netted a low shot to 1-0. Only twelve minutes later he had to be injured because he was stuck in the lawn without any external influence. It looked very bad … Rating: 2.5.


PHILIPPE COUTINHO: Held back in the beginning to become more and more an absolute asset. Had bad luck when his hammer kissed the bottom of the bar. In the 64's, the Brazilian was allowed to cheer but deservedly. Note: 2.


IVAN PERISIC (to 86th): The most conspicuous of the offensive series. The croat only came on 50 ball actions and did not even score the opposite goal. Had his best action when serving Pavard buttery soft (12). Rating: 3.5.


SERGE GNABRY: Although he did not appear as a goal scorer this time, the Spurs defense was regularly upset. Led the first two goals significantly and failed to a degree at the position. Strong performance. Note: 2.


THOMAS MÜLLER (from 27.): Replaced the damaged Coman and Müller-style dust shortly before the break to 2: 1 from. In the second passage conspicuous. Note: 3.


JOSHUA ZIRKZEE (from 86th): For the first time in his still young career, he was able to breathe the Champions League air. Without assessment.


LEON GORETZKA (from 87th): Came the last few minutes and had no influence on the events. Without assessment.
