Dynamo Kyiv 1-2 Bayern Munich: Player rating

5

Bayern Munich maintained their 100% winning record in this season’s group game in the Champions League, which led to a 2-1 victory over Dynamo Kiev on Tuesday night.

In bitterly cold, snowy conditions, the guests did well, kept Dynamo at arm’s length in the first half and sailed into a two-goal lead. A strike in the second half for the hosts caused some concern, but the injured German champions managed to hold on.

After an early scare, Bayern began to dominate the procedure and they got the breakthrough in the 15th minute, Lewandowski reacted smartly in the box before producing a perfect overhead kick to open the goal.

Throughout the initial period, the guests were on top and they finally took a second just before the break. Corentin Tolisso sprayed a lavish ball across the field that was neatly dumbfounded by Thomas Muller, allowing Kingsley Coman to finish clinically at the back post.

Bayern continued to cross during the second half, with Julian Nagelsmann making the changes he could to preserve his troops for the challenges ahead.

Dynamo, however, put up a tense end when Denys Garmash was played through and finished confidently to 2-1.

Despite a few more frequent shaves before full-time, Bayern were able to hold on to secure their fifth win of five matches in Group E.

This is how the players rated in Ukraine …

Manuel Neuer (GK) – 5/10 – Read some dangerous balls behind excellent. Spilled one and shook another towards the end. Could have been punished.

Benjamin Pavard (RB) – 6/10 – Made no noticeable mistake, but not the most inspiring offensive display.

Tanguy Nianzou (CB) – 7/10 – Well down in the notch order but did not look completely out of place here.

Lucas Hernandez (CB) – 7/10 – Always comfortable in defense and ball possession. Misplaced just one pass before he was taken off at the break.

Alphonso Davies (LB) – 6/10 – Does this guy ever stop running? A constant outing for his side offensively, although his positioning was doubtful for the goal.

Leon Goretzka (CM) – 7/10 – Provided equity / assets ratio in Joshua Kimmich’s absence. Had no problems keeping things ticking over in midfield, despite some support. Good tackle at the end.

Corentin Tolisso (CM) – 7/10 – Really enjoyed an advanced role. Drove forward with the ball, arrived late in the box and sprayed passes for fun.

Thomas Muller (AM) – 6/10 – Devilish dummy created the second goal. Pretty wasteful in possession.

Leroy Sane (RW) – 6/10 – Made some intelligent runs but was not always found by his teammates.

Robert Lewandowski (ST) – 7/10 – His kick over the head was a joy to watch. His ability to just keep scoring is completely insane.

Kingsley Coman (LW) – 7/10 – Took his goal extremely well. Kept too wide sometimes in the first half, but always a danger.

Bouna Sarr (CB) – 3/10 – Picked up a lumpy yellow early during his cameo. Not near Hernandez level. Bad for Dynamo’s goal too.

Marc Roca (CB) – 6/10 – Forgot this guy existed before he arrived. Went okay.

Malik Tillman (RW) – N / A

Omar Richards (LB) – N / A
