FC Bayern, News: “Most important game of career” for Nagelsmann
Lothar Matthäus holds FC Bayern and its coach responsible. “It’s the most important game in Julian Nagelsmann’s career,” writes the former world champion in his column sky: “A departure would be more than a normal end for him and Bayern.” He justifies this by saying that Villarreal is not one of the big players in Europe, despite the strong performance in the first leg.
The 61-year-old hopes that Bayern “find their rhythm again and then at least get into the semi-finals of the Champions League.” He is particularly concerned about Leroy Sane. “Something happened to him again and his body language is reminiscent of the beginning of the season.”
The 26-year-old hasn’t been directly involved in a goal since the second leg against Salzburg in the Champions League round of 16. Bayern have to make up for a 0-1 draw against Villarreal in the first leg.
FC Bayern, News: FCB is “winner of the first leg” for Wagner
Before the second leg against FC Villarreal, Sandro Wagner is certain that his former club will advance to the next round. FC Bayern should have lost the first leg “3-0 or 4-0”, but “the way the game went, for me the winner of the first leg is FC Bayern,” he says DAZN-Expert.
“There was a lack of attitude when it came to the intensity of the duels,” analyzed the coach from SpVgg Unterhaching: “The plan with the ball was good, but it wasn’t implemented the way the coach wanted.” But the biggest problem is that the players are now too aware of their defensive vulnerability. “This way of thinking was also brought in from the outside and has become established.”
Dayot Upamecano symbolizes this development. The Frenchman can actually do everything, but always has a dropout. “In terms of quality, he’s a huge player,” Wagner is sure.
On Tuesday evening it is up to Bayern to reach the semi-finals. If the FCB offensive then works a “little better”, “the Spaniards will know what’s in store for them,” predicts the ex-national player.
