Bavaria’s individual review: top marks for the Flick-Elf, only one has a bitter day
In a furious first half, FC Bayern rolled over VfB Stuttgart – despite being numerically outnumbered. Left-back Alphonso Davies is having a bitter afternoon, but the Canadian can rely on his colleagues, who are all convincing. The individual review.
What a gala for FC Bayern! Munich defeated VfB Stuttgart 4-0 – despite being outnumbered for 80 minutes after being sent off against Alphonso Davies. Robert Lewandowski scores three times and is getting closer and closer to Gerd Müller’s (40) goal record.
MANUAL NEWER – NOTE 2: After his cold back between the posts, Alexander Nübel was back on the bench. First good save against Kalajdzic (14th). Had little to do after that. When challenged, Neuer parried safely.
BENJAMIN PAVARD – NOTE 3: Solid appearance on the right defensive side. Only had a few minor problems with the fast Stuttgart strikers at the beginning of the game, but then very sovereign and aggressively agile.

Bavaria’s individual criticism: sovereign performances by Boateng and Süle
JÉROME BOATENG – NOTE 2: Mostly sovereign, then he saw a yellow card for a foul on Kalajdzic (37th). Bitter: It was the fifth warning for Boateng, he is missing in the league summit at RB Leipzig on April 3rd. All in all a good performance, especially in the second half with a lot of rescues.
NIKLAS SÜLE – NOTE 2: The defense cabinet was preferred to Lucas Hernández in central defense. And Süle justified the trust of coach Hansi Flick. Strong in a duel, mentally always up to date, with a nice distance blast (52nd) – top performance.
ALPHONSO DAVIES – NOTE 6: Quite bitter afternoon for the Canadian. After his tough foul against Endo, Davies saw a yellow card, but then the video assistant intervened and referee Schlager pulled out the red card (12th). So also missing against RB. Previously lost two running duels against Stuttgart’s Wamangituka.
DAVID ALABA – NOTE 2: The Austrian started in six, Joshua Kimmich was absent due to illness. With his 273rd Bundesliga appearance, Alaba caught up with friend Franck Ribéry. After Davies was sent off, he moved to the left-back position and played convincingly there too.
LEON GORETZKA – NOTE 3: In Kimmich’s absence, midfield boss. As usual, strong and communicative. Offensive not so present this time, this job was taken over by Goretzka’s teammates. Aimed just too high once (82nd).
Bayern surers convince: top marks for Lewandowski and Gnabry
SERGE GNABRY – NOTE 1: The winger prepared the 1-0 perfectly, then he scored himself: After a Sané pass, Gnabry shot very deliberately into the right corner. A beautiful goal. Always dangerous in his offensive actions, was allowed out early later.
THOMAS MÜLLER – NOTE 2: When Bayern had to play with ten men, Müller dropped a bit lower to help defensively. But Müller still had strong actions up front. He had his feet in the game before the 2-0, he prepared the 3-0 with a precise cross.
LEROY SANÉ NOTE 2: The offensive whirlwind had the first dangerous offensive action, his shot was blocked for a corner (17th). A little later, Sané played a decisive role in the 2-0 and 4-0 win. Great interaction with Müller.
ROBERT LEWANDOWSKI – NOTE 1: You can rely on the striker: After a wonderful Gnabry template, Lewandowski spiked the ball into the goal to make it 1-0 (18th), his 33rd goal of the season. After a pass from Müller, he headed number 34 (23rd) and then left-footed the 35 (39th). A hat trick before halftime. Now only five hits are missing to Gerd Müller’s 40-goal mark.
KINGSLEY COMAN – NOTE 3: The French came on for Gnabry (61st), Coman’s comeback after muscular problems. Inconspicuous, the game had long since been decided.
ERIC MAXIM CHOUPO-MOTING – NOTE 3: Bayern’s top joker replaced Lewandowski (70th), who was allowed to rest a little. After a nice dance, “Choupo” shot over the goal (79th).

A football festival in twelve countries, with spectators in the stadium: Can the European Football Championship really take place this summer as planned? No, still thinks national coach Jogi Löw – but also reveals: Uefa already has a plan B in the drawer.
Former coach Ralf Rangnick is not returning as a sports director for Bundesliga club FC Schalke 04. The 62-year-old, who is also a candidate for the job of national coach, announced this decision on Saturday via his media advisor.
Long-time companions and the media consider Lothar Matthäus to be a suitable successor to Jogi Löw. The other question is whether the record international would do himself a favor. A critical appreciation for the 60th birthday.
