Bayern Munich’s center back pecking order is now clear. Kim Min-jae is officially the number one.

Bayern Munich exploded for seven goals and cruised to a 7-0 victory over Bochum in the fifth round of the 2023-24 German Bundesliga at the Allianz Arena in Munich, Germany, on Sunday (Sept. 23).

The win moves Bayern Munich into first place in the league with a 4-1 record.

Bayern Munich opened the scoring in the fourth minute of the first half with a goal from Choupo Moting, followed by goals from Kane in the 12th minute, De Ligt in the 29th minute, and Sane in the 38th minute to make it 4-0 at halftime. They didn’t stop in the second half. Kane scored in the ninth minute of the second half, Teller in the 36th minute, and Kane in the 43rd minute. Kane completed his first Bundesliga hat-trick. With seven goals in five games, Kane is second on the team in scoring. He also had two assists on the day. 

Kim Min-Jae got the start and played the full game. He kept a clean sheet for the first time in five games in Bayern Munich’s 7-0 thrashing. It was his best performance yet. He won eight of nine ball battles and completed 94% of his passes. He cleared the ball 10 times and didn’t allow a single dribble break.바카라사이트

With his start in this match, Kim has started all five Bundesliga games and has been called upon to start every game since the start of the season, including the UEFA Champions League (UCL) match against Manchester United.

Kim’s partner, Dayo Upamecano, was dropped to the bench for the first time. In his place, Matthijs de Ligt came into the starting lineup. It was De Ligt’s first start since his Super Cup selection on the opening day. It was a reversal.

However, De Ligt didn’t stay on the field for long. Despite scoring a header in the 29th minute, he was substituted at the start of the second half. In the second half, Kim Min-jae and Upamecano combined.

It could be argued that Thomas Tuchel was experimenting with De Ligt. De Ligt impressed in the short time he was on the field, and it’s inevitable that he’ll be competing with Upamecano in the future.

Now the question for the Bayern Munich center back is: who will be Kim’s partner?
