Bayern Munich manager Hansi Flick can dissect different parts of his squad’s performance over the course of the season, but one are he would like to see his team improve upon on is productivity from corners.

The Bavarians have only scored seven goals from corners this season and have really struggled with not just generating chances from corners during the Champions League tie with Paris Saint-Germain, but even getting off good deliveries consistently.

“Of course we are not thrilled and could have gotten more out of it. We couldn’t practice such things often. You have to weigh up whether you regenerate or do tactical things,” Flick said (per Tz). “In terms of approach, our standards are very good, even in the first leg against Paris. The trend is good, but we have to improve. It is important to practice that.”

No doubt, Flick has the right ideas on how to improve things. Normally consistent in sending in accurate corners, Joshua Kimmich has struggle at times of let with his delivery. Hopefully Bayern Munich can sort this issue out as soon as possible to take advantage of the weapons that it has available on set pieces.
