59 minutes, 4 P’s… The 2005 ‘Munich Super Joker’ is here, and why you should drop Kane.
Bayern Munich has a super joker. It’s Mathis Thiel, born in 2005.
Bayern Munich defeated Manchester United 4-3 in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League (UCL) Group A match of the 2023-24 season at the Allianz Arena in Munich, Germany, at 4:00 a.m. ET on June 21. With the win, the Bavarians move to the top of the group with three points.
Munich jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first half on goals from Leroy Sane and Serge Gnabry. Despite some shaky moments with their line high up the pitch, they managed to keep a clean sheet. Four minutes into the second half, they conceded. Rasmus Höyrun scored in a chaotic situation to narrow the gap. Eight minutes into the second half, a handball foul earned a penalty kick (PK), which Harry Kane converted to make it 3-1.
Tell came on for Kane in the 37th minute. After Casemiro’s goal in the 43rd minute narrowed the gap yet again, Tell virtually sealed the deal in stoppage time, latching onto a long pass from Joshua Kimmich to score. A Bruno Fernandez free kick in stoppage time hit Casemiro, but it had no effect on the outcome. The match ended with a 4-3 victory for Munich.
Tel scores another goal and gets noticed. His main position is striker, but he can also play on the wing. He has great penetration, pace, and goalscoring ability. He’s still young and has a lot of potential to improve. When Munich and Tottenham Hotspur were in talks to sign Kane, there were claims that Teller could leave Munich for Tottenham.
Speaking to Kicker at the time, he said: “It’s important for Munich to have a new striker. Munich is a team that needs to win. It doesn’t really matter who comes in. Munich has to win and I have to play for the fans. I like pressure, I like competition. It’s not a problem for me. I’m a player who knows what I can do.”
He added: “I had a positive conversation with coach Thomas Tuchel. I want to stay in Munich and we will discuss what will help my development. Munich is a dream for me and I work for it every day. All I can think about is Munich. I want to stay in Munich forever,” he added.
Remaining in Munich, Tell has been a super joker. He scored a goal against Werder Bremen in the first leg and followed it up with a goal against Mönchengladbach. Against Leverkusen, he assisted Leon Goretzka’s goal. After the Bundesliga, he scored in the UCL. Both goals came as a substitute. Three goals and one assist in five games (not including the Super Cup). The Super Joker is a fitting nickname. He’s played 59 minutes and has four offensive points 토토사이트.
His fellow joker, striker Eric Maxime Choupo-Moting, doesn’t even have an attacking point, let alone a goal. The comparison to Toure is telling. Going forward, Tuchel will likely prioritize Tell over Choupo-Moting when resting Kane and when looking to bolster his second-half attack.
