Goals were predicted before the game, but it turned out to be a much cagier affair, but with Bayern dominating in terms of control of the ball.
What was Kimmich's overall display like?
📷 Match Snapshot
No player was utterly fantastic on the evening, but the German was excellent in just about every area.
Throughout the first hour, the game was crying out for a moment of quality to break the deadlock, and it came in the 59th minute.
A ⏱️ 59' Thiago, who was also one of the best players on the night, finds a bit of space in midfield to flash a pass into the feet of Kimmich, who subsequently slides a pass down the right for Serge Gnabry. After a touch inside the box from Robert Lewandowski, the ball comes back to Kimmich, who clips a gorgeous cross to the back post for Coman to nod home.
Kimmich provided the key moment of quality, but in order to gauge his contribution, we need to look at a few of his performance metrics from the evening.
He had more touches of the ball than anyone else on the night with 96, and completed a superb 50/59 passes, with 22 of them being sent into the final third.
Only Thiago sent more passes into the final third with 25.
Defensively, he won 8/12 duels and made seven ball recoveries.
Three Bayern players sent the most crosses in with five, with Thomas Muller and Coman joining Kimmich at the top of that list.
