So the Thomas Tuchel era starts with a bang. Bayern Munich dispatched Borussia Dortmund with 70 minutes of ruthless efficiency combined with 20 minutes of complete incompetence. 4-2 flatters the opponent because it could’ve easily been 6-0 in the first half itself. Safe to say, it looks like Tuchel has hit the ground running.
Here are our talking points from the game:
- Why did Thomas Tuchel return to the standard 4-2-3-1?
- A quick recap of how the game played out, and the poor play in the final 20 minutes.
- Why Thomas Muller looks soooooooo much better in the 4-2-3-1 system, especially compared to his role under Julian Nagelsmann.
- Subbing Thomas Muller remains a critical mistake no matter what your tactics are.
- The resurgence of Leroy Sane and how he came alive in the second half.
- The potential changes that could improve this lineup — mainly Jamal Musiala and Noussair Mazraoui.
