I really liked him on the weekend better; just trying to fend off Kramer while doing his Maestro thing on midfield (yeah, trying to piss-off @Coman here) was much harder that finding a Vidaless attacking third and a much better right fender Kimmich (MOTM for me.) I'm really surprised he had a good game considering the above and the fact that he has played two games per week non-stop since like forever on a Mullereske stamina. Give the guy a break please. He's becoming Ancelotti's Pirlo; the anchor point for both a veteran filled room or a freshman seminar with no time to prepare for class.
He's hoverboarding past defenses a bit less I recon but his distribution has taken a considerable upgrade since the day we discussed his average two missed passes per game some years ago. Last game he had a 94% completion rate and this one . . . well, let's leave it to Spiegel to sum up:
"The star of the game: Thiago. As is so often the metronome in the game of Bayern. Had by far the most ball actions (172) of all players, led 15 tackles with a success rate of 73 percent. Given with most passes in the attacking half (112) and four Torabschlüssen."
Ancelotti, facts confirmed, has found his niche man pre-circle. Giving him a chance ex-circle is a different story. Vidal considerations mind you. Whatever Sanches is doing, that's just an experiment until more serious contenders show up. So the fact that you can throw whatever experiments you want on a make-or-break game with a shaky line behind your back tells you a bit of how confident the coach is on his new-star pupil. Pep's pet? LOL. It's more like Ancelotti's golden boy nowadays.
And that is how good a holding midfielder can make a team. Kimmich right next of course. (Now give the guy a chance further north and we can discuss Balon d' Or issues.)
Can you provide the source for the Spiegel part? I looked in the German site an couldn't find that part in the game review.

I'd say your last avatar was pretty vindictful.
