Some semblance of defending would be nice

Bayern Munich have started this match with their clown shoes on. From Manuel Neuer and David Alaba's early gaffe to this slalom run from Alvaro Morata, this team is steadfastly refusing to play defense today.

It starts with Medhi Benatia frozen on a play that he should never have been frozen on before Morata blows past David Alaba dragging the Bayern Munich defense around like they're toy plastic anchors attached to a barge. The coalescing of defense to just close down Morata leaves Cuadrado wide open before rightback Philipp Lahm is forced to make the first actual defensive action of the entire play. The Cuadrado scores a beautiful shot.

This is beyond poor and Bayern Munich are so much better than this. If they can't fix their issues, this game is going to end with one ugly scoreline.
