Munich wasn’t ideal,
but the Germans won’t be looking for perfection as they try to go through the Group of Death; they just need the points.
And after defeating Inter 2-0 in the San Siro to open Group C play,
they accrued points—three of them, in fact.
The Bavarian team led at the interval thanks to a goal from Leroy Sane,
and they extended their lead just beyond the hour mark thanks to
a lovely Sane-Kingsley Coman combination that culminated in an own goal for Inter.
The Germans won’t be looking for perfection as they try to get through the Group of Death; rather,
they will be looking for the points they need. Ayern Munich weren’t perfect.
They started Group C play with a 2-0 victory over Inter at the San Siro,
earning three points in total.
Leroy Sane’s goal in the first half was enough to give the Bavarian team
the lead at the halftime. They increased their lead just beyond the hour mark

Munich wasn’t flawless,
but as the Germans attempt to pass through the Group of Death, they won’t be aiming for perfection; they just need the points.
And they gained points—three in fact—
after defeating Inter 2-0 in the San Siro to start Group C action.
Leroy Sane’s strike gave the Bavarian squad the lead at the half,
and they increased it shortly after the hour mark courtesy to a magnificent Sane-Kingsley Coman combination that resulted in an Inter own goal.
The lineup for Simone Inzaghi is inadequate
Inter failed to live up to the challenge,
and Bayern prevailed thanks to their seasoned wisdom.
Both Edin Dzeko and Joaquin Correa missed chances to score the goal despite having opportunity to do so. While Nicolo Barella withered on the bench,
Marcelo Brozovic performed poorly in the middle. Stefan de Vrij was preferred,
however Danilo D’Ambrosio performed poorly and scored an own goal. Although Hakan Calhanoglu battled one-on-one,
his passing was brilliant. Martinez Lautaro was undetectable.
Inter needed big plays from their big players,
but none materialised. Barella sat in favour of a squad that was more offensively oriented yet unsuccessful,
raising many doubts about Inzaghi’s lineup decisions.By defeating Inter Milan
2-0 at San Siro on Wednesday,
Bayern Munich resumed its history of winning its first Champions League match. The victory might have been more comfortable
if it weren’t for Nerazzurri goalkeeper Andre Onana.
Bayern took the lead with Leroy Sane in the 25th minute,
while Inter’s Danilo D’Ambrosio scored an own goal in the 66th. The German team won its initial match in the competition for the 19th time in a row.
For Inter, which has now dropped two Serie A games,
including the weekend derby against AC Milan, it was yet another letdown.
Inter coach Simone Inzaghi had made a number of adjustments since that game, most notably benching Samir Handanovic and giving Onana his debut despite the fact that he hadn’t participated in a competitive match since April versus Ajax. Romelu Lukaku, a star forward, was still hurt.
Joshua Kimmich forced Onana to make two saves in the first three minutes,
keeping him busy. In addition, Thomas Muller’s shot had to be blocked deftly,
and Kingsley Coman’s shot just missed the target.
Inter only had a few chances to score in the opening period,
with Lautaro Martinez flashing a shot across the goal early on and D’Ambrosio firing a feeble attempt straight at Manuel Neuer.
Sane raced between two Inter defenders and onto a ball over the top from Kimmich,
rounded the goalie, and placed the ball into the empty net after Onana made a spectacular save to deflect Muller’s attempt over the bar.
Bayern was in total control and had three chances to expand its lead before Onana parried an Alphonso Davies shot,
D’Ambrosio stopped Muller’s follow-up attempt, and Marcel Sabitzer nearly missed the left post with the rebound.
After the break, Inter seemed to adopt a fresh strategy and produced chances,
but D’Ambrosio and Edin Dzeko did not take advantage of the openings.
A comedy of errors nearly resulted in Bayern scoring their second goal when Alessandro Bastoni attempted to head Kimmich’s shot back to his goalkeeper but may have done so too forcefully because Onana had to retrace quickly to deflect it off the post and under the crossbar.
