Four notes from Bayern’s 2-2 draw with Stuttgart

Bayern Munich The number of points has fallen in three consecutive games in the German League. He shouted at Stuttgart for his masterful plan to catch Bayern Munich late in the game and deserved to win the point. Fan frustration is starting to subside, and tonight I’m ready to take some time off by playing devil’s advocate and trying to explain why these results aren’t so late, as it seems on paper. So without further ado, here are the match notes:

Young guns come big

In a match where Bayern Munich had chances where the elderly were struggling to keep them out, the duo of 17-year-old Mathis Tal and 19-year-old Jamal Musiala managed to put their team on the scoreboard.

The calmness shown by the fine finishing of the box under the tight pressure of the two children was remarkable. Both scored with his weaker left foot. Jamal’s shot was particularly eye-catching, coming in after some soft movements to dodge the defender.

dangerous de yacht

Yes, we’ve all seen that punishment come light years later. Matthias de Ligt has so far made a good start with Bayern Munich. He plays with fire with his interventions but considering it a player flaw will rush to the end.

He is 22 years old, and after moving from Serie A to the Bundesliga, the change in pace of the game did not go unnoticed. Therefore, I wouldn’t blame the guy for wanting to throw his body at the opponent regardless of whether he had a good chance of doing a clean tackle or not. He makes a lot of mistakes and sometimes he’s out of position. Personally, I don’t think it’s a big deal unless he becomes a defensive rock in the following years at the club.

I see a lot of Sergio Ramos in De Ligt and Ramos playing with fire all the time. As Aristotle said, “There has never been a genius without a touch of madness.” If De Ligt can swing his recklessness and adjust his aggressiveness, he can undoubtedly do great things for the club and with him.

Kimmich and Sané

Robert Lewandowski’s departure while certainly leaving a void at the moment has opened up many opportunities of all kinds for players willing and willing to take advantage of them.

Joshua Kimmich increased the frequency of shots taken. While he is known for scoring goals in the big matches, this season he is looking to do more. A slight hint of space and Kimmich sends the ball flying, sometimes even when passing is a better option. It can be as frustrating to watch as it was when he first made his midfield debut after a world-class display at right-back culminated in Bayern treble wins and Kimmich, UEFA Defender of the Year in 2020.

Since we know how he “mixed the traffic” on his way to being one of the best midfield players, it’s only fair to let ourselves get frustrated and let Kimmich continue to push his limits.

On the other hand, Leroy Sane found much more space in the middle with Lewandowski’s absence. Thomas Muller is very happy to walk around and pull a bunch of defenders with him and open the middle to narrate to play, run or attack on the flanks. Despite coming in an hour later, Sanneh made two key passes and looked very good, less than great.

Both players have the talent to take on the roles they follow and give a lot to the team and this raises the following note.

A patient is waiting for the strong mixture

Three draws in a row Only six games in the league may seem disastrous to some, but this team has made a lot of adjustments in the league. transfer window. The team needs more time on and off the field with itself so that it can express itself freely with the ball. Many good attacks and chances are lost due to misunderstandings regarding players’ positioning or running in different directions. With multiple attackers, more synchronized roaming needs a lot of practice and time in the training ground.

Until today, around the 30th minute of the day, some attack sequences have been great. It was totally unexpected given that Nossair Mazraoui was just starting out and the team has had serious coordination issues this season. Even the second half saw some good moments.

This team obviously deserves more time and matches fail. Failure can bring this regeneration unit closer than possible to victories, the talent and mindset to transform into an existing machine, it just needs time.

And a special shout out to Alfonso Davies for a hard-working performance. The guy was an absolute beast, working extra hard to make some magic on the pitch! Way to go Phonzie!
