FCB trainer Thomas Tuchel attempted to furnish his own surprise, yet was clearly outmaneuvered by his counterpart. Tuchel lined his team up in an attempted mirror of Xabi's 3-4-3. Sacha Body and Noussair Mazraoui functioned as wingbacks ahead of a back-three comprised of Dayot Upamecano, Eric Dier, and Min-Jae Kim. Speaking to the Sky microphones last night, B04 midfielder Robert Andrich admitted Bayern delivered the unexpected.
"We were a little surprised by their formation," Andrich said in his post-match interview, "We [nevertheless] thought up something atypical beforehand so that Bayern would be surprised. He [Xabi] thought up the idea on Thursday and we practiced in on Friday. Huge compliments to the team that we were able to adapt so quickly."
