Youngsters shine for Bayern to show the future is bright

The Bayern Munich players did well to put the Champions League disappointment behind them and came out sharp from the opening whistle. On the field, the players reflected the positive vibe that was present in the stands.

The performances of first-time starters Lovro Zvonarek and Bryan Zaragoza would have put a smile on the faces of both teammates and the cheering fans. Zvonarek opened the scoring just four minutes into game following a neat pass from Alphonso Davies and a clever dummy from Thomas Müller. The 19-year-old attacking midfielder drifted in from the right side and calmly controlled the ball before depositing it into the back of the net from the edge of the box.

Zaragoza then made his mark just nine minutes later, showing his pace as he raced down the left flank to keep the ball from going out before curling in a cross to Zvonarek, who nodded the ball to Müller, who then set up Leon Goretzka to make it 2-0.

A few minutes later, Zaragoza was unfortunate not to have been able to emulate Zvonarek by scoring his maiden Bundesliga goal after a VAR review adjudged Müller to have been offside in the build-up. It would have been a deserved third goal for Die Roten.

Minus a couple of rare mistakes, it was a thoroughly professional display from the Bavarian side. Thomas Tuchel did well to give deputy goalkeeper Daniel Peretz some second-half game time. The German coach also handed first-team debuts to teenagers Matteo Pérez Vinlöf and Jonathan Asp Jensen just before the final whistle.
