What a performance from Kovac’s boys in London. As it seems, north London is a perfect place for Bayern to demolish teams. From history, we know that Arsenal was always an easy opponent of Bayern and now another North-London club became a victim of Bayern’s furious attacking line.
1st half of the match
It was a tough 45 minutes for Bayern. Tottenham started a game successfully as they decided to attack from the first minutes. Before scoring a goal, Tottenham forwards had two scoring moments, but they could not convert those shots successfully. In the 12th minute, Son scored a goal and gave a one-goal lead to Tottenham.
Bayern players were calm as they believed in team play. Kimmich scored a screamer in the 15th minute. The German midfielder scored a goal from outside the box and fans lost their minds. It was an absolute beauty and enough to secure a draw in the first half. 1st half should have ended with 1-1 result, but Lewandowski had different ideas in mind. On the 45th minute, Robert scored on the left side of the goalkeeper and gave an incredible comeback before the final whistle of the first half.
2nd half of the match
Bayern Munich players started the second half with sharp attacks. Gnabry’s dribble was Bayern’s primary weapon in the second half. The player scored four goals in just 45 minutes and made history in north London.
Gnabry scored red two lookalike goals on 53rd and 55th minute. In just two minutes gap, Bayern increased the lead with three goals. On 61st minute, the referee saw a foul in Bayern’s penalty area and pointed to the penalty spot. Harry Kane was the first on the ball and scored a critical penalty for the team. Fans went crazy as they thought about big come back for Tottenham but they were wrong.
Lewandowski and Gnabry scored three more goals before the final whistle of the referee. Gnabry had an excellent performance and became the man of the match.
What’s going on with Pochettino?
How could the Argentinian coach lose his magical touch? Tottenham is not showing any signs of progress. After the Champions League final, Tottenham lost style that was admired by millions of people around the globe.
Son and Harry Kane could be fit for matches, but they are not decisive. For example, both forwards had many moments against Bayern, but each could score only one goal. At the same time, Bayern converted every possible moment.
