Working victory for FC Bayern: In the dress rehearsal for the Champions League quarter-final against FC Arsenal, Munich's relegation candidate 1. FC Köln deservedly defeated 2-0. Raphael Guerreiro and Thomas Müller score, Kingsley Coman is very unlucky.

Bayern in individual criticism: Ulreich clings to victory

SVEN ULREICH – NOTE 2: Manuel Neuer was rested for Wednesday's game against Arsenal, so Bayern's number two moved between the posts. Ulreich made a strong save from Adamyan's header (20th), and overall looked confident. Celebrating Bayern's victory with a brilliant performance against Tigges (89th), Upamecano had made a mistake earlier.

JOSHUA KIMMICH – NOTE 3: One of the professionals who was not saved. He acted again as a right back. He often attempted crosses, but sometimes lacked precision. But overall decent.

MATTHIJS DE LIGT – NOTE 3: In central defense alongside Eric Dier, the duo should continue to work together. After some problems at the beginning, there was hardly any demand from Cologne. Solid.

ERIC DIER – NOTE 3: He english people Now he establishes himself as a communicator and organizer of the defense. Adamyan's header went too far (20'), otherwise confident.

Pavlovic was not always sure against Colonia, Guerreiro with the can opener

NOUSSAIR MAZRAOUI – NOTE 4: At left back in the starting eleven instead of Alphonso Davies. from the Canadian is suspended against Arsenal on Wednesday, Mazraoui could also replace him. With a somewhat carefree performance at the beginning, Mazraoui allowed Alidou to finish. The shot went wide (9th). Little came out of him offensively.

ALEKSANDAR PAVLOVIC – NOTE 4: Return to the youngster's starting eleven after recovering from an infection. He had problems with his foot and slipped near the halfway line (33'). He's not as confident as he was before his injury.

RAFAEL GUERREIRO – NOTE 3: He Portuguese He played alongside Pavlovic in midfield. He had a great opportunity when, after preparatory work by Müller and Kane, Schwäbe denied him from point-blank range (30'). It had to be 1-0. Later he did better, much better: with a shot to the corner after a pass from Kimmich, he beautifully scored the 1-0 (65th).

Thomas Müller scores very coldly: bitter afternoon for Coman

KINGSLEY COMAN – NOTE 5: Very bitter afternoon for the French. Almost nothing worked for him in the first half, then he was injured again, apparently seriously: he sprained his right leg in a duel with Christensen. Afterwards he could not perform at all and had to be taken to the locker room (49'). That looked bad.

THOMAS MÜLLER – NOTE 3: The veteran led the team onto the field as captain in Neuer's absence. Flawed at first, then a little better with some good ideas. He coolly made it 2-0 in added time.

MATHYS TEL – NOTE 3: The young man French Once again he was able to prove himself from the beginning. Tel started well, he had Bayern's first chance with a right-footed shot and was stopped (11th). He then had bad luck: he hit the outside post (43'). In the second half his shot was blocked by Schwäbe (53').

HARRY KANE – NOTE 4: Very bad luck for the scorer in the 34th minute: after a backheel assist from Müller, Kane failed to finish off the inside post. Then the Bayern striker shot wide (38') and headed into the arms of Schwäbe (41').

Joker Upamecano makes a serious mistake shortly before the end

JAMAL MUSIALA – NOTE 3: Coman came into play in the 50th minute and immediately had a good chance: he shot wide with his left foot (52nd). I tried a lot, again I aimed too high (75º).

DAYOT UPAMECANO – NOTE 5: Although he was still able to practice the game a little, he replaced De Ligt (61'). He made a serious mistake by unnecessarily following Waldschmidt's path. He almost made it 1-1 (89').

ALPHONSO DAVIES – NOTE 4: The Canadian replaced Mazraoui on the left side of the defense (62'). He tried a few dribbles in attack, but couldn't do anything decisive.
