Four things to observe from Bayern Munich victory over Freiburg

Leroy Sané scored once, Kingsley Coman scored twice, and Mathys Tel and Sané both had goals disallowed in Bayern Munich’s 3-0 victory over SC Freiburg. Throughout the whole 90 minutes, Bayern completely dominated Freiburg, hardly ever allowing the opposition to enter the box or attempt a shot on goal. After this game, let’s take a look at some interesting findings.

The best in the world is Leroy Sané.

There is no escaping from it. It cannot be denied. He is just that good, and even the most ardent fan of the Premier League must submit to him. Leroy Sané gave a performance to remember today, scoring a ridiculous goal and nearly adding another outrageous goal (which, in my opinion, still looks onside). Additionally, Sané was the most creative player on the field, creating several chances for his teammates that they were unable to convert. He was also excellent at recycling possession with his drops into midfield



Even now, Kingsley Coman seemed unsure.

With two goals and some excellent chance creation, Kingsley Coman made the difference for Bayern today, yet something still seems strange about him. Coman frequently lacked decisiveness in the final third, choosing the incorrect choice or making none at all, which caused the attacks to slacken and die out. The Frenchman had his brilliant moments and his forgettable ones. Both of his objectives also involved a significant amount of luck. Despite the goal contributions, Coman also had a few opportunities to score in more traditional ways that he missed, so there are undoubtedly concerns about this performance





flawless in defending

Today’s defense was outstanding. Alphonso Davies, Dayot Upamecano, Kim Min-jae, and Noussair Mazraoui, the back four, all gave outstanding performances. Particularly on offense, Davies was a delight to watch as he frequently converted interceptions into runs past the Freiburg middle and into the final third. Mazraoui also displayed creativity in his runs and passes, with Kim’s progressive passing standing out in particular. Upamecano played a subdued game on the ball, but he did an excellent job of filling in the spaces when necessary
