  • The answers in the press round to read the live ticker.

Update, 2:22 p.m.: Now it’s time for the crunch time of the season with an increased rhythm. “It’s important for players to be comfortable with things. My work has a lot to do with accompanying you on the way to the games, in the game itself you are the ‘coach’ who unfolds the performance. On the way there, you’re more like a ‘trainer’ – and I’d rather be a ‘trainer’ than a ‘coach’,” was the cryptic reply from the trainer. After that, the PK is over, it continues tomorrow at 8.30 p.m. against RB Salzburg, you can read the live ticker for the round of 16 second leg at tz.de.

Update, 2:19 p.m.: Before the game against the Mozart townspeople, the coach is also asked about his relationship to classical music. “I don’t listen to it often, but I’ve been to the ‘Night of the Proms’ several times, which is classical music with an orchestra combined with pop classics, and I really liked it. I don’t go to the opera, but I do watch musicals,” says the trainer.

Update, 2:14 p.m.: Leroy Sané’s form has recently dropped a bit, will the DFB star also play tomorrow? “He’s a player I don’t like to do without because he has this quality and this extra class in many situations and keeps the opponent busy. I haven’t decided yet what the first eleven will look like. He has my trust, even if he doesn’t play from the start. If I lined up now, he would start.”

Update, 2:11 p.m.: How does Nagelsmann perceive the RB club? “I think Salzburg has been a good team for years, and they have a clear idea after winning the ball,” says the coach. “They have strong individual players (…) and could certainly play a good role in the German Bundesliga. It is a dangerous team that will demand everything from us.”

Update, 2:09 p.m.: How does Nagelsmann rate Salzburg? “They will defend high in phases and try to use counter-pressing actions. They haven’t been able to train properly because of the Corona cases, so it will also be a task to keep our pace up over 90 minutes. Then we can bring our quality to the pitch.”

FC Bayern – RB Salzburg: Press conference with Julian Nagelsmann – “If it doesn’t end well,…”

Update, 2:07 p.m.: Now it’s about the Salzburg game, the most important one for Nagelsmann as Bayern coach? “It’s an important game. If it doesn’t end well, it’s not a special season. That’s how it is at Bayern Munich, but of course I have the right to do it myself. But I don’t think we’ll be eliminated.”

Update, 2:05 p.m.: “If you have such a Lewy in the team, you also have to give him the balls. He had the space but didn’t get enough balls in the first leg. He must also hope for the support of the players to get the space this time. But we’ve managed to do that well over the past few months, although in the last few games we’ve played against opponents who defend well.”

Update, 2:04 p.m.: Nagelsmann is asked about the communication by ex-pro Torben Hoffmann from Sky and immediately tells a short story from his active time at TSV 1860. “I don’t know if you remember, but I once worked at another club in Munich with the professionals trained. That’s when I noticed that you talk a lot and that helped me a lot – even though I played against you in a four-on-four back then. You probably don’t remember that anymore, because I was a little light and you probably thought: ‘What’s someone jumping around about?’.”

Update, 1:59 p.m.: Manuel Neuer returned to training after his knee surgery and also took part in the final session. “If nothing happens overnight, he will be able to play. We’re happy about that,” says Nagelsmann to his captain.

Update, 1:57 p.m .: That’s it from Thomas Müller, it’s about to continue with Julian Nagelsmann!

Update, 1:55 p.m.: Karim Adeyemi, who was also trained at FCB, is one of the top performers at Salzburg, Müller also talks about the 20-year-old. “Karim’s strengths are obvious, he has enormous speed and for his style of play as a winger even a very good weak foot. He also has header quality, he is also a penalty area striker. I would also see it as a strength that he has that shot of confidence in himself and rather fuels the situation to come back to Munich. For tomorrow, however, I would wish that he would have difficulties dealing with it,” said Müller, with a wink, about his national team colleague.

Update, 1:52 p.m.: “We have to lay the foundation tomorrow, we are aware of the responsibility,” says Müller. “If we make it to the quarter-finals, nobody will pat us on the back, but we still have this pressure that we don’t have in the Bundesliga. That’s why I enjoy this situation in a way.”

Update, 1:50 p.m.: How does Bayern’s king of assists rate opponents Salzburg? “In the first leg you saw that Salzburg can do it. The course of the game wasn’t happy for us, maybe at the moment when we can get the 0-2. It seemed as if we were vulnerable, but I still take our dominance and the way Salzburg played in the last 50 minutes or so with me. In the back of our minds, however, we have it very clear that Salzburg clearly has strengths that can hurt any team.”

Update, 1:47 p.m.: The Upper Bavarian comments on the development of Dayot Upamecano. “Upa has already shown many positive games and actions, including offensively. The issue with the defender is often that nobody even notices when something is being defended. If it doesn’t work, it will be specially highlighted. And that there’s been too many bugs involved the past few weeks is something we’ve all seen the past few weeks. We want to be a playful team, but that doesn’t mean that we dribble our way out of our own penalty area. We might have to give him more confidence that sometimes a ball in the stands isn’t a bad thing at all, but I think he feels the support of the team.”

Update, 1:43 p.m.: When asked about Robert Lewandowski and his inconspicuous appearances lately, Müller is not worried. “Lewy hasn’t gotten a lot of deals the last few games. We want and need to modify our attacking game, including involving Lewy in the penalty area. But he also has a positive tension in training, even when I had to watch against Frankfurt I saw him strong. He went ahead as captain and didn’t shy away from duels.”

Update, 1:41 p.m.: Müller talks about the pressure against Salzburg. “We want to get ahead. If we reach our goal and progress, the season can be extremely good. The reverse is that it would not be rosy times for FC Bayern if we were eliminated. But that’s not what I’m dealing with.”

Update, 1:39 p.m.: Will Bayern find their lightness back? “From my point of view, we often get ourselves into trouble through our own unforced mistakes, so it’s about getting a feeling for which zones of the game you play the more risky balls.” Müller speaks of a ” Risk management”, which will be a “key for the coming weeks”.

Update, 1:36 p.m.: Thomas Müller is immediately asked about his own goal against Leverkusen and the possible comeback of Manuel Neuer. “I would have liked to have done without the own goal, I was able to handle it reasonably well. We could have prevented that with better communication, you have to shake that off,” says the offensive player. “With Sven Ulreich we had an excellent representative in goal, both the way he saved and his charisma and control of the penalty area – he did that really well,” he summarizes. “With Manuel Neuer in goal, the opponent might have a different mindset, you might be hoping that he’ll hold off on one of the other ‘untenables’.”

Update, 1:34 p.m.: The press round with Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann and Thomas Müller begins four minutes late! First the professional speaks, then the coach.

Munich – Tuesday evening is about nothing less than reaching the quarter-finals of the Champions League* when FC Bayern* welcomes them to the Allianz Arena Salzburg. Since the first leg, Munich have scored two threes with a 4-1 win over Fürth and a narrow 1-0 away win in Frankfurt, but they had to settle for a 1-1 draw against Leverkusen at the weekend.

This is also necessary, because in the first leg almost three weeks ago, FC Bayern only managed to equalize in the last minute through Kingsley Coman. Salzburg have not conceded a goal since the draw against Munich, after a 2-0 win over Wolfsberg and a goalless draw against LASK, the team of ex-Bundesliga professional Matthias Jaissle recently beat SCR Altach 4-0.

The results are all the more remarkable because the coach had to manage a Corona * outbreak between the two round of 16 games. A total of 17 professionals from the Austrian superiority tested positive, all of them can be used again against Bayern. “The boys did well after this strange preparation for Corona,” Jaissle summarized the situation before the important game in Munich.
