We'd need to be better in midfield.

 

Have to disagree with that, thought all three in midfield played well tonight.

The front three, and the fact that we were quite cautious and didnt throw too many bodies forwards were the main reasons we never scored. And of course the quality of the opposition.

Clean sheet.

 

With VVD back, if we score away we're a very decent chance of going through.

 

We've been just OK since we lost to City though.

It'll be difficult to go through from here, but not impossible. 

 

Bayern will be a bit braver in the second leg and there'll be more gaps to exploit. 

 

They were composed and efficient, whereas we looked a bit rushed and sloppy at times. 

 

Their back four were excellent, for me. Very, very disciplined.

Utd are in form and high on confidence. I'd expect us to drop points. I just hope City will drop more.

 

Disagree. They’ve been exposed against the two top sides (Spurs and PSG) they’ve played under Solskjaer and ended up with one of the most fortuitous wins in football history and a resounding defeat. I’m glad that we're playing them in high confidence and not as a wounded animal, which was my concern before they played Chelsea.

Does a 0-0 give us confidence going into the weekend?

In a way it does Fabinho is just an all round brilliant footballer he will slot in midfield and VVD is back. Midfield looks good for a change Gini is so important to us and Henderson first half was really good so think a lot rest on him/keitas performance on Sunday.

Frustrating.

 

But they are an excellent side who are very clever too.

 

Gnabry, Kimmich and Hummels are superb.

 

Felt like we were always just not quite at it despite us putting in a big shift - seen it before following these breaks and against a team as good as they are you need to be at sharpest.

 

Was a proper game though and hopefully sets us up for the vermin at weekend.

 

As far as this tie goes i think we are probably going to get edged out now, but it is going to be very tight and if we are at our best and can counter well we will be in with a big shout.

 

I thought we put in a proper shift as a side tonight but lacked the sharpness needed and nous to break a very, very good unit down.

Shite second half. Completely played into the hands of these time-wasting fannies, allowing them to play exactly the game they wanted. Absolutely despise these long breaks. Anyone who keep banging on the myth about how getting kicked out of cup competitions plays into our favour league-wise can do one. We are a vastly better team with a good rhythm of games.

They were but we had some very good chances especially Mane.

We rode our luck for 20 mins at the back but we should have won that I thought

Keita would be world class if he could pass anywhere but the oppo's shins.

The opposite view is though play it safe and sideways a la Henderson (who showed some balls tonight) at least he is trying to make things happen from midfield which is what we need

If Salah hadn't had a poor game, we'd have scored. He's our cutting edge. 

 

Bayern did defend well, though. Kimmich out second leg is big. 

Agree with this.

 

I think we're (marginally) in the better position going into the second game. Our best player to return and one of theirs will be out. Our defense will be much better with VVD in and Fabinho in the midfield and that means if we score we should go through.

 

We just need to take one or two of our chances, which I think you'd have to say is likely. We won't have another game that off in front of goal again IMO.

Fabinho and Henderson best players on the pitch. Salah disappointing, but at least more involved than Lewandowski. Origi managed to not do anything in his 15 minutes, as per usual.

Result OK. Decent performance and on another day we tuck away one of those chances or get a bit better run of the ball in their area.  Hopefully we've saved the goals for the weekend.

We really should have made more of an effort to get that cunt Kimmich sent off.

Yep. Never put him under any pressure.
