Dominating and much stronger than its host, Bayern came to glean its first three points of the season in C1 quite easily on the lawn of Inter (2-0). A success made possible by a jewel of Leroy Sané, also involved in the second registered against his camp by Danilo D’Ambrosio.

Inter 0-2 Bayern

Goals: Sané (25e), D’Ambrosio (CSC) (66e) for Bayern

Starting your Champions League campaign by receiving Bayern is rarely a gift. Especially when you are Inter, when you are looking for automatisms and confidence, and when both collectively and individually, the gap between yourself and the German machine is immense. At the final whistle, there was ultimately no surprise: as always in its history, Bayern came to win at San Siro against Inter. Quite logically, this time.

Sané to shine

Without Nicolò Barella and Romelu Lukaku, but with André Onana in the cages, it is a diminished and not really confident Inter who faces Julian Nagelsmann’s Bayern. In a San Siro not full, but ready to push its Nerazzurri to the feat, it is Onana who will quickly stand out. For his first with Inter, the former bulwark of Ajax has heated gloves. If Joshua Kimmich’s fly strikes do not worry him, Thomas Müller’s volleys force him to fly to keep his team afloat. If the Edin Džeko-Lautaro Martínez doublet tries to struggle in front, the rest of the home fleet takes on water against the top Bavarian pressing. The ax falls at the 25e minute: Kimmich delivers a candy to Leroy Sané who erases Onana with class to open the scoring (0-1, 25e). Inter are in the hard, and are not far from bending the knee when Marcel Sabitzer unleashes a beautiful strike at the entrance to the surface. This grazes the post, to the delight of the interior fans before the break arrives.

Too strong for Inter

After returning from the locker room, for ten minutes, Inter fought back, but Džeko fell on a reassuring Manuel Neuer first, then saw his header from a corner countered in extremis by Lucas Hernández, brilliant this Wednesday evening. Nagelsmann understood that it was necessary to breathe new life into his training, a new start, by launching Leon Goretzka in place of Sabitzer. The effect is almost immediate: after a ball from Onana which finally sees the post save the homeland, it is a sublime one-two between Sané and Kingsley Coman which forces Danilo D’Ambrosio to shake his own nets (0-2, 66e). The four changes at once made by Inzaghi will not change anything at the end of a meeting which will have seen Bayern only really put themselves in danger once. Seven minutes from time, Hernández misses his recovery, but Joaquín Correa, however lonely in the Munich area, panics and does not fit. Bayern is launching its C1 campaign perfectly, while Inter are starting to have a lot of headaches.
