So Bayern Munich have won another game in the Champions League, and it really wasn’t even close. Viktoria Plzen will be counting their lucky stars that this game only ended 5-0, because the early minutes of the game seemed to be building up to a massacre. We saw complete dominance and clinical attacking football as Juian Nagelsmann’s side tore the Czech giants apart.

Here are our talking points from the game:

  • How exactly do you pronounce “Plzen”?
  • A quick recap of what went on in the game.
  • Jamal Musiala and Leroy Sane’s amazing linkup plays.
  • Sadio Mane, offsides, and criticism of the automated offside technology.
  • A basic review of each player’s performance.
  • Why Leon Goretzka might be preferred over Marcel Sabitzer against certain types of teams.
  • An interesting note on Benjamin Pavard being subbed on as a center-back.
  • Criticizing Julian Nagelsmann for his use of youth players this season and this game in particular.
