Tuchel made a bold change from the four-back he has usually used since taking the helm of Munich. Kim Min-jae, Eric Dier, and Dayo Upamecano started as central defenders.
There was no significant change on the list except for the three center backs. The main gun Harry Kane came out as a one-top, followed by Jamal Musiala and Leroy Sane.

18 minutes into the first half, the home team Leverkusen took the lead. Stanisic cut the cross into the net with a strong right-footed shot. Neuer blew himself away, but Munich’s defense collapsed at the moment. At the time of Andrich’s cross, Munich defenders were only looking at the ball.
