Julian Nagelsmann will be glad preseason friendlies are over after yet another average showing by Bayern Munich . In what was good news, many starters returned and played 45 or more minutes. Robert Lewandowski captained the side for the day; other regulars included Leroy Sané, Leon Goretzka, Benjamin Pavard, Kingsley Coman among others, Coman would not last long, sustaining an injury early in the first half and being taken off for Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting.

There were chances from Jamal Musiala, Serge Gnabry, Dayot Upamecano and Choupo-Moting in the first half but the teams went into the half 0-0. Julian Nagelsmann made nine changes to start off the second half. The changes would disrupt flow, particularly at the back, and Bayern would go on to concede three quick goals in the last 20 or so minutes to lose 0-3.
