German media criticizes Kim Min-jae again

Kim Min-jae, 28, was not spared the criticism after picking up his first assist since joining Bayern Munich. Bayern Munich also slipped further away from the trophy.

The Bavarians drew 2-2 with Freiburg in the 24th round of the 2023-2024 German Bundesliga at the Europa-Parkstadion in Freiburg, Germany, on Sunday (Feb. 2).

The Bavarians lined up in a 4-2-3-1 formation. Harry Kane, Jamal Musalla, Thomas Muller, Mathis Tell, Leon Goretzka, Aleksandar Pavlovic, Raphael Gueheiro, Kim Min-Jae, Eric Dier, Jozua Kimmich, and Manuel Neuer started in the back four.

Freiburg started in a 4-4-2 formation. Lukas Höller-Roland Scherer, Vincenzo Griffo-Nicolas Höller-Maximilian Eggestein-Doan Ritz, Christian Günter-Manuel Gulde-Matthias Ginter-Kilian Sildilia, and Noah Attubolu started in the back four.

Bayern got off to a shaky start, conceding the opening goal in the 12th minute when Schurrle headed a cross that was saved by the goalkeeper, 카지노사이트 and then hit the post with a bicycle kick from a high ball. Freiburg won a series of aerial battles before Günter found the corner of the net with a stunning half-volley.

Freiburg continued to attack.

In the 16th minute, Günter got behind the defense and had a one-on-one opportunity, but was denied by Neuer. In the 22nd minute, Griffo beat a defender on the counterattack and shot just wide.

Bayern equalized. In the 35th minute, Teller found the back of the net with a powerful right-footed shot following a good touch in the box. It was a wonder goal that tied the game at one.

At the start of the second half, Bayern knocked on the door. Two minutes into the second half, Kane broke through and fired a left-footed shot that went wide. Kane had another shot on goal in the 18th minute from inside the box, but it sailed wide. In the 26th minute, Mkhitaryan had a crucial shot saved by the keeper.

Bayern turned the game on its head. In the 30th minute, Moussaoui broke through the defense on a solo dribble down the left flank after a pass from Kim Min-jae. He beat three defenders with a brilliant run before finishing with a pinpoint shot. It was Kim Min-Jae’s first assist in the Bundesliga.

However, Bayern did not have the last laugh.

In the 42nd minute, Freiburg’s Michael Gregoric collected a long throw-in in the box and dropped to his feet. The ball was collected by Höller, who converted with a stunning volley that split the net. In the end, Bayern had to settle for a 2-2 draw and a point.

With the loss, Bayern dropped another point, leaving them with 17 wins, three draws, and four losses and 54 points. The gap between them and leaders Leverkusen (61 points), who have played one game less, is seven points. If Leverkusen were to beat Cologne in this round, the gap would be 10 points.

In effect, the league title is out of reach. Bayern signed Kane and Kim Min-Jae ahead of the season to try and win their 12th consecutive Bundesliga title, but they are in danger of missing out on the trophy if they are overtaken by Xabi Alonso’s Leverkusen. Thomas Tuchel will also be leaving the club at the end of the season.

After the game, Tuchel said: “We played well in the second half and had a lot of chances, but in the end we threw away two points. We could have defended much better in front of goal, but apart from that, we completely dominated the second half and created a lot of clear-cut chances.”

Musiala was not satisfied. “We fought hard, we created a lot of chances,” he said, “but we are Bayern Munich. We always want to win. The situation is really annoying. We want to be champions, we want to win titles,” he said.

The German media also criticized the result,

TZ saying: “Bayern should be happy with a draw. It was a very bitter evening for them. By missing out on a win, the gap between them and first-place Leverkusen has increased to 10 points.” “A late setback for Bayern in the title race,” said ‘RAN’.

“Bavarian Football Works” concluded: “Bayern suffered another setback under Tuchel. This team is a pale shadow of its former glory. The defense was terrible, which is why Matthias der Licht is sorely missed. It’s hard to see what the future holds for this defense right now,” he sighed.

Kim Min-Jae did not escape criticism either. In 90 minutes, he had a solid performance with one assist, a 95% pass completion rate (88/93), one tackle, an 80% aerial ball win rate (4/5), and six clearances. Football stats site Footmob also gave him a rating of 7.9, second only to Musalla (8.2).

However, the local media had a different opinion, with SPOX saying, “Kim Min-jae, who usually defends meticulously, continued to stand out on this day and prevented the opposition from counterattacking, but he was too cautious against Gregory just before the end and conceded the equalizer with relative ease,” giving him a rating of 4.

TZ and RAN also gave the team four points.

TZ said, “Kim Min-jae decided to attack off the defensive line at the wrong moment. He unnecessarily broke down the defensive line and caused chaos. He did not perform well as a central defender,” while RAN said, “Kim Min-jae played in place of Der Licht, 메이저사이트 who was suspended. At first, he was unable to add stability to the shaky defense. Later on, he did a good job with his backward passes, but it was too late for the equalizer.”

Sport gave Kim a 3.5 rating. “She struggled with the lack of defense from her teammates. But for the most part, he made up for it. However, sometimes he was too timid in one-on-one fights. In the last goal, he didn’t dive in at all,” they wrote.
