FC Bayern Munich – Borussia Mönchengladbach: The analysis

At FC Bayern there was a change in the starting XI compared to 7-0 in Bochum: Nagelsmann surprisingly did without Matthjis de Ligt. The central defense consisting of Lucas Hernandez and Dayot Upamecano did a good job even without the Dutch star newcomer and concentrated on defending Gladbach’s isolated counterattacks.

When the opponents had possession of the ball, the guests withdrew far, sometimes with all players up to their own penalty area. FC Bayern dominated from the start and had their first good chance in the first minute: Joshua Kimmich cornered, Upamecano header. A few more dangerous Kimmich standards followed, but there weren’t any real chances from the game at first, despite good playful approaches.

That changed after about half an hour: Bayern became more and more compelling, mainly thanks to Leroy Sané and Kingsley Coman who were now spinning. Two Mané goals were disallowed for offside in this phase before Thuram Gladbach gave his team the lead with his first shot after a capital Upamecano error.

The dominance of the hosts became even clearer in the second half: Gladbach defended, Bayern pushed vehemently for the equalizer, whipped up by a heated atmosphere. After a number of missed opportunities, Sané provided redemption.
