Bayern Munich was expected to defeat Barcelona but no one would have predicted such an astonishing scoreline. The Bundesliga champions inflicted a humiliating Champions League defeat on Barcelona. The scoreline of 8-2 is enough to show how Bayern showed their dominance in Europe.
The current Bayern team features world-class players in every position. From Neuer, under the bars to Lewandowski, inside the opponents’ penalty box, Bayern has built a team which can challenge any European team on any given day.
The youngest Bayern player on the pitch last night was Alphonso Davies. The 19-year-old is probably the find of the season for the German side. The left-back was handed a difficult job of keeping Lionel Messi at bay and many thought that he would fail to cope with one of the best players.
Surprisingly, the Canadian international has not only kept Messi at bay but he has also made Semedo look like a boy who has no idea how to defend.
Just look at this blistering run by Davies! He is the fastest player right now in world football with a top speed of 22.69 mph. Now he is on the verge of becoming one of the best left-backs. He made a stunning run on the left flank and got past Semedo with ease and provided a perfect ball for Kimich to tap in.
Davies has shown in the match, why he is so highly regarded at Bayern Munich. He is one of the best emerging talents. Keep an eye on this boy as he would surely make it big one day.
