“Mini Korea-Japan War” is successful! Upamecano Horror Show: Munich lost 0-1 to Lazio

By pestfood.com

With Kim Min-jae starting, Bayern Munich failed to secure the victory.

Munich lost 0-1 to Lazio in the first leg of the 2023-24 UEFA Champions League (UCL) round of 16 at Stadio Olimpico in Rome, Italy, at 5 a.m. on the 15th (Korea time).

Preview

Munich, which had a dominant position in the German Bundesliga, has had a rough schedule in the league this season. It is ranking second in the league, behind Bayer Leverkusen, which has seen an upturn under Xavi Alonso.

He was beaten by DFB Pokal. He suffered a shocking defeat when he met Jarbrücken, a lower league team. As much as he did not operate the rotation 100%, the impact of the defeat was huge.

The team showed relatively easy performance in the UCL. It teamed up with less advanced teams such as Manchester United, Copenhagen and Galatasaray, and accumulated points in every match based on stable performance. It secured four consecutive wins from its first four matches of the group league, confirming its advance to the round of 16 teams early on. Although it ended its winning streak by losing its fifth match against Copenhagen, it did not affect the outcome. Munich has advanced to the knockout round. It will meet Lazio, an easy opponent, in the round of 16.

Lazio, who are consistently competitive in Italy, are not a threat this season. The team is ranking eighth in the league with 11 wins, four draws, and eight losses (37 points) in 23 league games. It has a whopping 23 points gap with Inter Milan, which is ranked first, and five points gap with Atalanta, which is ranked fourth.

Munich is in a better position these days. It has four wins and two losses in six official matches based on the soccer statistics magazine Huscoed. However, it is important to quickly get over the shock of the previous defeat at the Leverkusen match.

Unlike Munich, Lazio won the previous match. Prior to that, they had no win in three official matches, but they managed to renew the atmosphere by winning 3-1 away from Cagliari.

The two teams encountered each other in the UCL in the last 2020-21 season. At the time, Munich won 4-1 away to Lazio and advanced to the next round with a combined score of 6-2 with a 2-1 home victory.

Freshmen played a big role in Munich’s ability to do this much this season. Harry Kane is the main character on the attack side. Kane, who became a “legend” at Tottenham Hotspur, is also continuing his good trend in Munich this season. With 24 league goals, he is ranked first in scoring, beating Seru Girashi (17 goals) by a wide margin. Unless something unexpected happens, Kane is expected to be the top scorer.

His scoring ability is amazing. At the end of his time at Tottenham, he was in the spotlight as a playmaker rather than a fixer, but Kane’s biggest strength was his scoring ability. Until the very beginning of this season, there was a prospect that he would not be the top scorer this season because the gap with Stuttgart’s Seru Girassi was twice as wide, but he is currently ranked first in the league with 24 goals. He is seven goals ahead of Girassi. Unless something unexpected happens, Kane will be the top scorer in the Bundesliga. 꽁머니환전

If there is Kane in attack, there is Kim Min-jae in defense. Most predicted that he would compete with Dayo Upamecano and Matthai’s the Licht, but Kim Min-jae has established a solid position since the opening game.
