Despite losing 1-0 in the first leg, Bayern Munich expressed their composure and made a strong speech on the eve of welcoming Villarreal in Tuesday’s Champions League quarter-final second leg.
Julian Nagelsmann and Bayern are sure…
Steamroller or colossus with feet of clay? It’s sometimes difficult to know on what basis to dance this season with Bayern Munich who, from game to game, are capable of missing the point and crushing the competition.
If these moments of confusion, often attributed to coach Julian Nagelsmann’s very offensive style, don’t have any real impact on the championship in which the Bavarian giants remain league leaders by 9 points, they could have highly unfortunate consequences on the other side the Champions League.
Mr. New – don’t joke with us
Last Wednesday, the Thomas Müller band actually fell on the Villarreal field in the first leg of the quarterfinals (0:1). Faced with a tight team and tactically perfect, the Germans rarely failed and are not unhappy not to have returned home with an even heavier suitcase. But Nagelsmann and Co. gave a strangely self-confident speech the day before the home game.
On the way out we made a lot of mistakes. They did one thing: let’s live. And we must punish them for a, said the technician, who lost the first leg in a tactical fight against Unai Emery. The same very insulting speech by Captain Manuel Neuer. We have character in this team, very proud. If we’ve lost a first leg, we shouldn’t be joked aboutwarned the guard.
Nagelsmann ready to play dirty
Behind that somewhat cartoonish speech of arrogance often blamed on the Germans and Bayern in particular, Nagelsmann nevertheless conceded that the situation is serious and only the result will count, even if it means abandoning some of his playing principles: Diamonds are formed under pressure, maybe tomorrow (Tuesday) we have a brilliant match. (…) What must not happen is that we give Villarreal time to bring its quality to the pitch. We need to play a little rougher. But we mustn’t talk about it so much, we have to do it tomorrow. In the preliminary round, after the pain-torn draw (1-1) in the first leg, Bayern added action and corrections to RB Salzburg in the second leg (7-1). Will the champion’s pride speak again?
