KIM, who was also absent, has now fallen to ‘4 options’… Bayern Munich wins 2-0 against Cologne in the relegation zone

April 14, 2024 | by

Bayern Munich managed to win by inviting relegation team Cologne on its home turf. With Bayern Munich adding three points, Kim Min-jae was not seen in this match either.

Bayern Munich beat Cologne 2-0 at the 29th round home match of the German Bundesliga in the 2023-24 season at Allianz Arena in Munich, Germany, at 10:30 p.m. on the 13th (Korea time). They added three more points thanks to the second half of the match, which was scored by Rafael Guerreiro and Thomas Müller.

Bayern Munich, the home team, operated a 4-2-3-1 screening. Sven Ulaihi wore gloves. Nusair Mazrawi, Eric Dier, Matheis de Licht, and Jojua Kimmich built a defense. Rafael Geheiro and Aleksandar Pavlovic supported their teammates in the third line. Matisse Tell and Kingsley Coman were named in the second line, with Thomas Muller at the center. Harry Kane was on the front line.

The expedition team Cologne responded with the same 4-2-3-1. Marvin Schwebe defended the last step. Max Pinkgrepe, Julian Shabot, Timo Huibers and Jan Tillman made four back. Dejan Ljubic, Jakob Sten Christensen supported the offense and defense in the third line. Florian Kainz, Lynton Maina and Faride Alidou helped attack in the second line. Sargis Adamian was the front line striker at the front line.

In the 9th minute of the first half, Alidou’s deflected shot in the box missed the goal by just one point, and Cologne missed the first goal. In the 11th minute of the first half, goalkeeper Shube saved Tel’s shot, and this time, Cologne overcame the crisis. Adamian tried to score with a diving header on the cross delivered from the left side in the 20th minute of the first half, but goalkeeper Ulaihi hit it to stop the loss.

Bayern Munich, which attacked Cologne’s gap through a linked play in the 30th minute of the first half, had Guerreiro’s shot headed for the goal, but it did not go beyond goalkeeper Shube. Kane’s shot, which was lightly shot by Mueller in the 35th minute of the first half, hit the net. Kane took a shot after dribbling in the box in the 38th minute of the first half, but this time it did not lead to a score due to a minute difference.

In the 43rd minute of the first half, Teal’s right-footed shot hit the post, leaving Bayern Munich with another regret. Given a minute of added time in the first half, Bayern Munich’s attack failed to open Cologne’s goal until the end. Both Bayern Munich and Cologne finished the first half without scoring a goal.

Jamal Musiala was replaced in the 5th minute of the second half due to Coman’s sudden injury. Tel tried to score with another shot in the 8th minute of the second half, but goalkeeper Shube succeeded in saving. Bayern Munich excluded Mazrawi and De Licht and added Alfonso Davis and Dayo Upamecano in the 16th minute of the second half.

Guerreiro’s left-footed shot, which received Kimihi’s pass in the 20th minute of the second half, shook Cologne’s net. In the 31st minute of the second half, Cologne replaced four players at once and attempted to turn the mood around. Beno Schmitz’s mid-range shot came out in the 32nd minute of the second half, but Ulaihi threw himself to handle the shot. 노래방알바

In the 34th minute of the second half, Bayern Munich brought in Guerreiro and Pavlovic, and added Konrad Reimer and Leon Goretzka to change the midfield combination. The gap in the game was maintained in the 45th minute of the second half as the Cologne strikers missed the opportunity from Upamecano’s mistake in succession. With five minutes of extra time in the second half, Müller did not miss the opponent’s mistake and scored an additional point. Bayern Munich, which took the victory, kept the gap and added to the victory.

Coach Thomas Tuchel announced the rotation before the game, but it was not the case for Kim Min-jae. Tuchel also sent Dier and De Licht against Cologne, putting Kim Min-jae on the bench. Kim Min-jae was not spared from being on the bench for two consecutive matches following the first leg of the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal against Arsenal, which was a midweek match.

Furthermore, Tuchel chose Upamecano rather than Kim. In the second half, Tuchel called De Licht to the bench and let Upamecano go. As Upamecano, who was considered a four-option defender, was replaced, Kim’s position seemed to have further declined.

Bayern Munich will face Arsenal again at 4 a.m. on the 18th. The two teams, which failed to decide the match with a 2-2 draw in the first leg, will fight at Allianz Arena for a ticket to the UCL semifinals. However, it seems highly unlikely that Tuchel, who did not choose Kim Min-jae in the league match, will send Kim Min-jae out of the match.
