Pressing for an early goal against Liverpool on Day 2
In attack, dribble and pass to create scoring chances
After joining German professional soccer giant Bayern Munich, Kim Min-jae has been impressive in attack during preseason games. However, it will take some time for him to gel with his teammates as he is still making mistakes in defense.
Munich came from behind to win their preseason friendly against Liverpool (England) 4-3 in a seven-goal thriller at the Singapore National Stadium on Sept. 2 (KST).
Starter Kim Min-jae scored his first offensive point on his Munich debut with a precise long pass that led to the game-winning goal in the 33rd minute after trailing 0-2. Kim sent a low trajectory pass to the front line, where Gnabry rattled the net after breaking the offside trap.
While the offense led to the goal, there were some disappointing moments in the defense. Kim Min-jae’s mistake in the second minute of the first half, when Liverpool’s Cody Hackpo scored the opening goal, stood out. Kim Min-jae played a forward defense to press, and Liverpool took advantage of the space created by Kim Min-jae’s forward movement to score a goal.
The second concession in the 28th minute was also a result of poor communication between the Munich defense. When defending a corner kick, there was no division of roles between Kim and the other defenders, and Van Dijk easily scored a header.
This was the same situation in the previous game, where the offense was satisfactory but the defense was not.
On his Munich debut against Kawasaki Frontale on March 29, Kim Min-jae lost the ball in the first minute of the game while playing a forward pass in the buildup. Kawasaki rattled the Munich defense by breaking up the pass and even attempting a shot. Kim Min-jae himself admitted in his post-match interview that he made a lot of mistakes.
Against Kawasaki, he was also impressive on offense. In the sixth minute of the first half, Kim recorded his first shot on goal after joining the club, hitting the ball on the head from a corner kick. In the 10th minute, he dribbled to the near post and sent a low, quick cross to a teammate on the doorstep to create a scoring opportunity.
In order for Kim to quickly establish himself in Munich, he will need to cut down on his mistakes in defense and work with his teammates.
Munich will wrap up its preseason schedule with a friendly against AS Monaco on Aug. 8, 카지노사이트 before kicking off the new season against Leipzig in the DFL Super Cup on Aug. 13.
