- Thomas Tuchel’s line-up and subs are nearly unchanged from the previous game, a rousing victory over Schalke. However: the exclusion of an energetic Leroy Sané (in favor of Leon Goretzka and a reversion to 4-2-3-1) looks like a serious mistake.
- Thomas Müller was his usual quick-thinking self, directing his teammates around him to press Leipzig’s build-up. But in front of goal? Not enough, and it’s unfortunate again given the position he was tasked with.
- Noussair Mazraoui maybe didn't deserve a 5, though he wasn’t his usual influential self. If anyone deserved a 5, it wasn’t any individual player but perhaps the coach.
- How did Bayern go for such long stretches, yet again, without looking threatening? A lot of soul searching to be done in the offseason.
