Bayern Munich players impress in an emphatic win against Wolfsburg.

Manager Rating

Hansi Flick — 7/10

With one eye on the next week’s DFB Pokal final against Bayer Leverkusen, Flick decided to give some key players minutes to get back into rhythm against Wolfsburg. The German manager also rested Benjamin Pavard and Joshua Kimmich. Both have been playing every game for Bayern Munich since resumption.

Player Ratings

GK, Manuel Neuer — 8/10

After sitting out of the game against Freiburg, Neuer returned to the lineup against Wolfsburg. He had a lot of work to do as Wolfsburg created many chances in the first half. The German international made a terrific save from Josip Brekalo’s close-range shot. He commanded his area well and helped in the build-up play consistently.

DEF, Alvaro Odriozola — 6/10

The Spaniard got a rare start in this game as he has struggled to break into Flick’s team since arriving at the club on loan from Real Madrid in January. Lack of playing time was visible in his game as he struggled defensively. Wolfsburg exploited space behind him and created big chances. In the final third, Odriozola much better as he enjoyed good combination play with Coman. He delivered a dangerous cross for Lewandowski in the first half, which was brilliantly saved by Casteels. An underwhelming performance by Spaniard in possibly his last start for Die Roten.

DEF, Jerome Boateng — 7/10

A routine performance at the back for Jerome Boateng. The German defender was rock solid in the defense. Wolfsburg threatened in the final third, but Boateng was there to mop things out. He was majestic on the ball, helping the team to build up from the back. It is a big turnaround of fortunes for Boateng under Flick as he remains eager to keep playing under Flick next season.

DEF, David Alaba — 6/10

Alaba returned to the lineup after missing the game against Freiburg due to minor injury. The Austrian defender had an average performance by his standards. He often got his positioning wrong, and his passing was also a bit wayward. A rare poor outing for Alaba.

DEF, Alphonso Davies — 7/10

After serving suspension against Freiburg, Davies returned to starting XI on Saturday. The Canadian full-back delivered a decent performance. Defensively, he dealt with everything Wolfsburg threw at him on the left flank. In the final third, Davies was quiet compared to his usual performances.
