“Barça didn’t expect it”


After Bayern Munich’s 3-0 win over FC Barcelona, ​​coach Julian Nagelsmann was delighted. “The way gives us a lot of energy because we were very bilious,” said the 35-year-old DAZN: “I don’t think Barça expected that.”

His team was patient and played good football. “Then we were a bit too hectic in possession,” he analyzed some phases of the second half. Still, it’s “not so bad to win 3-0 in Barcelona.”

“We knew that the red zone would be big and that Choupo could fix something with his back to the goal,” he explained his basic idea against FC Barcelona: “And then it’s the case that Barça has a very high chain without any real pressure to have on the ball.”

When asked about the current system, Nagelsmann emphasized that they had “always played similarly” this season. Now, compared to before, only the results would be correct.

Matthijs de Ligt: “For me, Gnabry was the man of the match”

Matthijs de Ligt was a key to stopping the joy of playing FC Barcelona and especially Robert Lewandowski. “For me, Lewandowski is the best striker in the world,” the Dutchman described his “difficult” task afterwards: “You have to play very aggressively against Barça, very intensively. With our intensity, we did it very well.”

After the game, the centre-back was named Player of the Match. “For me, Gnabry was the man of the match,” he modestly commented on the decision. The offensive player collected three assists against the Catalans. One of them found Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, who made it 2-0.

“A great play by Serge,” the Cameroonian analyzed the scene: “He waited until the last moment and then played at just the right moment, I was on the offside line.” He always tries “to be a target player, to also fix balls. You can not only play over me, but also over the outside.”

They also want to win the last game against Inter, but that’s not all. “We go into every Champions League season with the goal of maybe winning this thing in the end,” said Choupo-Moting with a smile.
