Kingsley Coman has been a vital player for Bayern Munich in the last two weeks.

Since returning from the November international break, Kinglsey Coman has been in terrific form. The French winger has been instrumental for Bayern Munich in the four appearances he’s made in the last two weeks.

Coman’s direct involvement in eight of the 11 goals Bayern have scored in their last five matches in all competitions has helped Die Roten pick up points in both the Bundesliga and UEFA Champions League. There’s no question Coman has been one of the top performers for Bayern in recent weeks.

Goals and assists galore

It’s been a terrific start to the 2020/21 campaign for Coman. In all competitions, the 24-year-old has recorded five goals and seven assists in 11 appearances. He’s currently on the path to recording his best season to date in terms of goals and assists in the Bundesliga. Coman is just two assists away from bettering his 2015/16 assist total of six assists.

When it comes to goal scoring, the 2018/19 campaign was his highest total with six goals scored and he needs five more goals to eclipse that total. This is shaping up to be a career season for Coman if he can continue to produce goals and assists on a consistent basis.

Coman’s last four appearances for Bayern have been where the goals and assists have piled up. He’s scored three goals and registered five assists during this incredible run of form.

Currently, according to Football Reference, Coman leads the Bundesliga in assists per 90 minutes with 0.99 assists per 90 minutes played.  Bayern has earned two victories and two draws in the four matches Coman has scored or assisted in during this run of fantastic form. The goal in the Champions League final against Paris Saint-Germain has certainly flipped the switch for Coman as he is looking more efficient in the final third.

Finding good form at the right time

Bayern have not had the easiest of victories over the last two weeks. They have been involved in multiple closely contested matches and Coman has been there to help ensure Die Roten takes points away from these fixtures. Among these matches was his goal against Werder Bremen that ensured Bayern took at least a point away from a match that they were highly favored to win.
