Bayern Munich star Joshua Kimmich knows the frustration felt by fans – with the team looking great in the Champions League but mediocre outside of it.

“Unfortunately, it’s true. To be honest, especially in the last few weeks, we had two very good games against Arsenal. Especially the second game and the second half of the second game.” The second game against Lazio was also very good, but we had some problems in the Bundesliga and Leverkusen’s performance all season was amazing. ” Kimmich said in an interview with Diario AS (captured by @iMiaSanMia).

“Because we didn’t perform well in many games. Fortunately, we performed well in the Champions League. But to be honest, for a club like Bayern Munich, it’s certainly not enough to be second in the league. We have to focus in the Champions League because we can still win it.

Kimmich’s recent switch to right-back could prove to be a key factor in Bayern Munich’s chances against Real Madrid.

“We had some injuries in this position and the coach decided to play me in that position. And then we had some great games. Especially, like I said, in the Champions League, so I don’t think he will be there. Changing that in the last game of the season was not a problem for me playing there and it was completely different to playing in midfield. Finally, I have a rhythm. I can enjoy it. It’s good for me and it works well in our current situation with the team,” Kimmich said.

Kimmich will have a tough task at right back against Real Madrid in trying to stop Vinicius, who we know is a very good player.

“Unfortunately or fortunately, when you play at right-back or left-back, you mostly face the best individual player of the other team. Kylian Mbappe or Vinicius Junior – European Football Today The two best players. I know Vinicius is really strong in 1v1 situations, so I’m really happy to face him and compete with him,” Kimmich said. explain.
