Match Awards from Bayern Munich’s 12-0 win over Bremer SV in the DFB-Pokal first round

Bayern Munich showed strength tonight and showed no signs of slowing down, even after taking a five-goal, first half lead.

Jersey swap: Nobody

Bremer SV simply didn’t put any resistance to Bayern Munich’s attacks. They pressed until they conceded their first goal, and then they parked the bus. They probably could have tried to show a little bit more competitive spirit. Still, they are an amateur team technically, so we can’t expect much from them when they face one of the best teams in the world.

Der Kaiser: Tanguy Nianzou

The young French defender showed a lot of promise tonight. He provided a secure presence and made some very good tackles. In the first part of the match, he often gave the ball to Süle. As the match progressed, Nianzou showed more and more confidence. He even made a key pass for Bayern’s tenth goal. Although in the 49th minute, he showed his weakness — under pressure, he lost the ball in his half and therefore created a dangerous counterattack for Bremer.

Der Fußballgott: Corentin Tolisso

Tolisso finally got a start and used it pretty well. He did take time to get into the match, but with that time, he started playing better. He often made some crucial tackles in the midfield and pressed the opposition. In the end, he managed to score a goal after the goalkeeper saved Serge Gnabry’s shot in the 88th minute. He is surely a great option for Bayern’s squad when he is fully fit, but unfortunately, that’s often not the case.

Der Bomber: Jamal Musiala (aka “Bambi”)

The youngster showed his full potential tonight. He just outplayed every opposing player he faced and was so dominant in every duel. He showed how well he can score, dribble, pass and even defend. He definitely has an exciting season ahead of him, where he might get more first-team minutes under Julian Nagelsmann. Unfortunately, one of his goals was ruled as an own goal so Musiala ended the match with a brace to his name instead of a hat-trick.

Meister of the match: Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting

Well... what is there to say? Bayern’s Cameroonian attacker was involved in almost every single Bayern goal. He was simply amazing! He demonstrated an assortment of skills tonight — from shooting to dribbling, and even showing great range and vision with his passing. He was all over Bremer’s defenders and often pressed them into making mistakes. He found pockets of space often throughout the match and was always ready test Bremer’s keepers, who split 70 and 20 minutes between Sebastian Kurkiewicz and Daniel Kunkel, respectively. He showed that Bayern and Robert Lewandowski can count on him as a reliable substitution when Bayern’s #9 is unable to be involved.
