It’s happened again. After an amazing start to the season, Bayern Munich have suffered a second consecutive draw to Union Berlin, putting an end to the perceived invincibility of this side. With Champions League games starting up again, it’s a very bad time for Julian Nagelsmann to hit a bump in the road.

Here are our talking points from the game:

  • Bayern Munich draw yet again thanks to some staunch defending by Union Berlin. Should that concern us? (Answer: Yes.)
  • Addressing Nagelsmann’s choice to have a lack of width on the pitch.
  • Why this Union game result differs greatly from what happened against Gladbach.
  • Sadio Mane’s terrible, not-good, very bad game. Is the honeymoon over?
  • The problem with Leroy Sane today.
  • Addressing the rest of the forward line and their issues.
  • Why Julian Nagelsmann needs to bring the unpredictability back to Bayern’s attack.
  • Pointing out a few good performances — Matthijs de Ligt and Marcel Sabitzer.
