Next Bayern gala against Barca: Munich in the individual criticism

FC Bayern made the group victory perfect with a comfortable 3-0 win against FC Barcelona. The Munich team showed themselves tactically extremely disciplined and ice cold in the crucial moments. The goals were scored by Sadio Mané, Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting and Benjamin Pavard. This is how a Champions League winner plays! However, there is still a long way to go to get there. We take a look at the performances of the Bayern players.

The Bayern keeper didn't actually have to hold a single ball in the entire game. In principle, Ulreich exuded security, although his kicks will probably never be the truth. Rating: 6/10

The supposedly offensive alternative to Pavard did a very good job defensively in the first 45 minutes and won a few important duels. Shortly after the restart he managed another strong tackle against Lewandowski. On the offensive, the Moroccan didn't really attract attention except for a deflected shot, but overall he was very confident in the passing game. Rating: 8/10

Dayot Upamecano showed strong nerves and strong tackles at the back and didn't let anything burn in the first round. After the break, he wasn't quite as consistent in the duels and also made one or two minor mistakes in the build-up. After an hour, the Frenchman was exchanged for compatriot Pavard. Rating: 7/10

The Juve newcomer did a very good job and reliably kept the Barca offensive away from their own goal in conjunction with Upamecano. It only got tricky just before half-time when he had to face off against Lewandowski and luckily played the ball easily, so the penalty was rightly taken back. In the second half, the Dutchman managed without any risky scenes and could not be overcome by the Barca offensive. Rating: 8/10

The Canadian revealed unusual defensive weaknesses on the left in the first round. In the 26th minute he let Dembélé eat him badly and also looked bad against the Barca right winger in one or the other scene. He was also hardly able to put himself in the limelight offensively. In round two you could see the well-known Davies turbo in action again more often. Defensively he found his usual stability. Rating: 6/10

Kimmich dominated the midfield, but in the first half remembered more about safety passes. Only in the second 45 minutes did he dare to take more risks, but always remained precise. It's just a shame that his brilliant pass to Gnabry was minimally offside. After all, his cross was the starting point for the late 3:0. Tactically, Kimmich, like his neighbor Goretzka, showed a very mature performance. There is not much to criticize.Rating: 8/10

Leon Goretzka appeared increasingly defensive in the first half, but showed himself to be very strong and a robust clearer. The eight was rarely in action with the ball, but remained safe in the passing game. Until his surprisingly early substitution, he had a pass rate of 100 percent. Rating: 8/10

Serge Gnabry is finally back on track. The German national player prepared Mané's 1-0 lead with a superb through ball and also played the decisive pass through Choupo-Moting to make it 2-0. After the change of sides, Gnabry was able to score himself after a precise Kimmich pass, but he was rightly called back because of a minimal offside position. The offensive player dived a bit afterwards, but was back in added time when he prepared Pavard's 3-0 lead with a slightly accidental side kick. Rating: 10/10

With Jamal Musiala, light and shadow alternated a bit. The youngster showed good movements and opening passes, but also squandered the ball here and there. He made it 2-0 with a nice pass to Gnabry. Shortly before the break, Musiala missed the mega chance to make it 3-0 from five meters away. In the second half, the attacking midfielder played a little more confidently, but wasn't able to set any big accents before he made way for Gravenberch with 20 minutes to go.Rating: 6/10

The Senegalese used his pace and finally his finesse in the finish to give Bayern an early lead. Otherwise, Mané was able to show one or the other good pass, but was not really dangerous for a long time. Shortly before the end he failed at ter Stegen from a short distance, but shortly afterwards it was 3-0 anyway. The 30-year-old showed a lot of commitment against the ball. Rating: 7/10

Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting is just on a roll right now. Although the striker hardly played in the early stages, he used his first opportunity coldly by tunneling ter-Stegen to make it 2-0. The Cameroonian worked a lot and was substituted after an hour for Thomas Müller. Rating: 7/10

After being substituted on, the Austrian had a good grip and won an important duel against Lewandowski in the penalty area. Sabitzer showed that Julian Nagelsmann can always count on him, even if he wasn't really spectacular. Rating: 7/10

After coming off the bench, Müller got all ten passes to the man, but couldn't really cause any more danger. Rating: 6/10

Benjamin Pavard played defensively very neatly and calmly after his substitution. Shortly before the end he marked the 3-0 on the inside after Gnabry template. Rating: 8/10

The Dutchman did better in Barcelona than in his last brief appearances. The youngster showed himself calm in the passing game and he also convinced in the duel with many balls won. Rating: 7/10

Came in for Mazraoui ten minutes before the end and played down his boot effortlessly. No rating
