After the match against Paris Saint- Germain
(PSG), manager Carlo Ancelotti was fired, and manager Hanji Flick completed the treble. Which direction will director Julian Nagelsmann’s fate lead?
Bayern Munich will face PSG in the first leg of the round of 16 of the 2022-23 season European Football Association (UEFA) Champions League (UCL) held at Parc des Princes in Paris, France at 5 am (Korean time) on the 15th.
Since 2011, when PSG was acquired by the Qatari royal family, the match between Munich and PSG has always been heated. Since we met for the first time in September 2017, we have produced a great game with at least 3 goals in 4 out of 6 matches, and we met once in the UCL final and fought fiercely.
PSG has often decided the fate of Munich coaches. PSG, who met Munich in the group stage in September 2017, completely wiped out the opponent 3-0. This was a decisive blow for Ancelotti, and players’ complaints about tactical competence and training intensity erupted, and he was sacked within days.
He gave the title of immortality to director Hanji Flick. The two teams, who exchanged one win each in the group stage of the 2017-18 season, will face each other in the UCL final of the 2019-20 season. Due to Corona 19, it was a situation where PSG and Munich could achieve a treble by winning both PSG and Munich in a competition that was held as a single game from the quarterfinals. 슬롯사이트
Victory belonged to Munich. Munich successfully defended Kingsley Comang’s opening goal in the 14th minute of the second half thanks to Manuel Neuer’s crazy save show, completing the ninth treble ever and the club’s second. Coach Hansi Flick carved his name into the history of Munich by winning six crowns.
Which side will be the fate of director Nagelsmann? He shared the glory and failure of Munich with ups and downs from last season. In the league, he eventually won the championship, but in the UCL, he suffered a shocking elimination because he could not surpass the ‘dark horse’ Villarreal. At the time, the club was able to avoid the fire by trusting Nagelsmann’s tactical ability.
Things might be different this time. Falling in the round of 16 is a humiliation that cannot be compared to being eliminated in the round of 8. It is coach Nagelsmann who has to seek a turnaround in the UCL because his grades are not good enough to compete for the lead with Union Berlin and Borussia Dortmund in the league.
