The true story of ‘Kim Nagol’?! Munich, which was ahead with Kane’s consecutive goals
Kim Min-jae allowed a run as soon as he was out.
Bayern Munich won 3-1 in the second round of the Bundesliga against Augsburg at Allianz Arena in Munich, Germany, on the 28th (Korea Standard Time). Harry Kane, who joined Munich from Tottenham Hotspur this summer, scored multiple goals, and Kim Min-jae, who started, played 81 minutes.
Kim Min-jae played solid defense during the game. In the 4th minute of the first half, he connected an accurate left-footed roving pass, and in the 10th minute, he completely overpowered his opponent’s attacker in the air. Whenever Augsburg forwards received the ball, they showed a clear appearance, a strong and stable defense shown at Napoli.
However, there were many pass misses in this game. In the 41st minute, in the build-up situation, he handed the ball to the opposing striker, creating a dizzying situation. Embarrassed, Kim Min-jae immediately made another pass miss. It seemed that his hands and feet did not match well with the midfielders in front of him. Both mistakes did not lead to conceded points.
In the 10th minute of the second half, he missed another pass, but blocked the attack himself. His defense itself was stable. He often showed the appearance of precisely pulling out the ball instead of excessive fouls. In the 25th minute of the second half, the third goal was the starting point. Kim Min-jae connected the ball forward, and his Munich teammates did a perfect attack. This action led to Kane’s goal.
Kim Min-jae was replaced by Mathias de Licht in the 36th minute of the second half and withdrew. The football statistics media ‘Foot Mob’ gave Kim Min-jae a rating of 6.7. He was the lowest-scoring Munich player on the starting list. Kim Min-jae’s pass success rate on this day was 91%, and he took a total of 84 ball touches.
Afterwards, Munich’s first goal came from The Licht. In the 41st minute, Augsburg’s pass went through De Ligt’s crotch. And Dion Verho had a 1v1 chance at once. Verho did not miss this opportunity and scored a comeback goal. As soon as Kim Min-jae fell out, he allowed the first run. The Ligt continued the uneasy defense that started from the preseason.
Kane, who recently left Tottenham and joined Munich, clearly proved his ability to home fans that day. In the 40th minute of the first half when Munich was leading with an own goal, he scored the team’s second goal. Joshua Kimmich’s powerful shot was hit by the opposing defense’s arm. The location was inside the box. The referee checked the video review system (VAR) to determine whether or not to take a penalty kick. As a result, a penalty kick was declared for Munich. Kane, who started as a kicker, easily succeeded in a penalty kick. It was a scene I always saw at Tottenham. He scored consistently to give Munich a 2-0 lead. Kane, who did not stop here, took over the pass from Alfonso Davies, who penetrated the side in the 25th minute of the second half, and completed multiple goals.
