They had acre-sized gaps between the CBs to deal with. As 'off' as Thomas was yesterday, his little cross move pulled a CB out of position, created another big gap that Kounde didn't fill. Left a lane for Sane to run right through.

On the whole, I've been impressed with Nagelsmann's adjustments. Barcelona pressed well in the first half - but they can't do that for 90 - and as soon as they had to let up and Bayern started using all the width, it was done.
