Their second outting in this UCL season hasn’t gone as expected fr Mauricio Pochettino’s men. Here are 7 reasons that account for Bayern Munchen’ tremedous 7-2 victory over Tottenham Hotspur.
Bayern has a real number 10 as playmaker
Despite the fact Barcelona got rid of him too fast, Phillipe Coutinho is a world class playmaker, and Bayern set him up right in the starting 11 giving him freedom and the chance to create at will.
Playing a line of 3 in the middle without vision
Sure thing that Sissoko, Winks and Ndombele are a brick wall to run the midfield, but Coutinho’s magic, flair and intelligent positioning left one step behind (at least) Spurs defensive tactics.
Thiago is a beast
After the break we saw the Regista of Bayern in action, topping the delicious evening with an assist at standards that can be provided only by him in today’s football.
Lewandowski can’t stop scoring
Yes is true, the goal guaranteed striker walks a streak path that became almost a certainty before the match, he will score and surely he does that … 2 goals that cut the comeback for the Premier League side.
The sweeper-keeper, provided some eye-catching passes seasoned with saves that confirm him, still, as one of the best in the world.
Having a ton of speed on the wings, Bayern made his way past the defending Belgian duo without much problems. Alderweireld and Vertonghen are in deep trouble if they meet up against flash speed strikers.
Gnarby x 4
Scoring 4 goals and completing a poker evening, the german winger was the man of the match. What more can be said after such a performance where he outpaced everything Spurs put in front of him. Talking about german wingers, Leroy Sane should join Bayern to complete a brilliant offensive line.
Bayern’s performance sends a clear message about their chances of winning this season of Uefa Champions League, covered with contests entirely by FootballCoin who hosts every round of action from the most powerful European competition.
