However, VAR caught Gnabry offside, and the goal was disallowed.
It was bad: Bellerin
It’s difficult to single out just one athlete as the worst player on the field, but Bellerín put in a lot of effort.
The former Arsenal right-back was simply disastrous on the pitch, failing absolutely everything he tried.
In defence, he constantly left Bayern’s opponents cool to score, missing every offside line.
On the rare occasions he went on the attack, he was also easy prey for Davies to mark.
