As a lot as it’s new for FC Bayern this season, all the things within the objective is similar: Manuel Neuer checks the offensive imaginative and prescient from the again and, if doubtful, begins the assault with a aspect kick. At the start, when the sport was nonetheless one thing like a soccer sport with an open finish, he was fortunate that the header from Tuta from Frankfurt ended up on the crossbar. Later, when the sport was over, he performed recklessly and wager 1:5. Oh nicely.
He’s in all probability anticipated to be an everyday central defender at instances this summer time. In any case, he’s nonetheless the first-choice right-back for the time being – and it’ll in all probability be much more enjoyable for this new Bayern group. He scored his second objective within the second leg of the competitors 2-0 in Frankfurt, as within the Supercup in Leipzig after a nook. He broke by from the beginning – and was fortunate that Frankfurt’s left winger, Filip Kostic, stopped taking part in on the identical time.
It’s doable that Upamecano is only a placeholder within the Munich beginning eleven, in spite of everything Matthijs de Ligt might be there in his place. The Dutchman was solely on the bench as a result of he had a number of days off coaching. And loopy this appears like 6:1 – the Munich group was not at all times assured at the start, at the very least Frankfurt additionally has probabilities. Within the Upamecano sport, nonetheless, the duels had been surprisingly profitable.
It was costlier than de Ligt, specifically 80 million euros, “rather a lot”, because the sports activities director Hasan Salihamdidzic just lately admitted in an SZ interview. He as soon as allowed himself to be performed in dizzyingly by Frankfurt’s Rafael Borré, however the Eintracht striker fired large. After which nobody requested about Munich’s defensive efficiency.
Few footballers in Europe may observe Davies as soon as he leaves. The way in which he ran with the ball in massive areas of the pitch simply earlier than half-time was the final time he encountered it in 2020 within the 8-2 Champions League defeat towards Barcelona – the identical one-sided and kooky soccer. one on the opening of the sixtieth season of the Bundesliga.
Not like different Bundesliga coaches, Kimmich doesn’t have a previous often known as an extremely, and this time he shouldn’t be accused of any selection of pyrotechnic merchandise. However on Friday he fired a free-kick across the one-man wall in Frankfurt on the aspect of Pyro-Rauch in entrance of the Frankfurt Northwest Curve – and the ball landed within the quick nook to make it 1-0. So the primary objective of the season was one which got here out of nowhere. Kimmich then loved the sport and despatched all of the pissed off Munich attackers in the direction of the objective along with his cross.
A shock visitor in Bayern’s beginning eleven this season, in accordance with coach Julian Nagelsmann one of many “winners in preparation” and within the absence of injured Leon Goretzka the primary selection for Kimmich’s aspect. Nevertheless, he began a much less spectacular present than his neighbor and was changed after 56 minutes by Ryan Gravenberch.
Already within the Supercup participant of the sport, this time he’s nearly invisible. Virtually each time cross creates extra – and in any other case principally with dribbles that nobody from Frankfurt may observe and possibly nobody else would. He scored two objectives, however most of his touches had been extra spectacular.
If there weren’t so many objectives scored, this show may have been top-of-the-line of the night: Alone in entrance of an empty internet, Müller fired Serge Gnabry’s cross towards the put up along with his personal. left foot, fell on his abdomen and received a ball on his head. Solely Müller can verify that. And, after all, he had ready three objectives ultimately.
He performs in a brand new system with a double lead in his favourite place in the midst of the assault – and you’ll inform. He’s definitely a kind of footballers who stated in Munich that now they’ll get out of the shadow of Robert Lewandowski. He set himself a objective and scored as soon as himself. Contemplating that he has solely recognized Sadio Mané for a number of weeks, the teamwork is convincing.
He cleared the ball along with his heel over his head within the penalty space, then caught himself asking: Might Robert Lewandowski have completed the identical? (Reply: Most likely not, as a result of what does he should do again there in his penalty space?) A lot has been stated about Bayern’s soccer being completely different with out Lewandowski and Mané. Now there may be additional proof that soccer is extra engaging.
To go Ryan Gravenberch entered the second half Mathy’s cellphone and Leroy Sane. Tel, 17, was the primary time within the jersey of Bayern. Sané performed extra clearly, particularly off the ball and as soon as he offered Musiala’s second objective. As a result of the final minutes are additionally completed Noussair Mazraoui and Matthijs de Ligt for the primary time within the Bundesliga.
