The Allianz Sand received the debut like new Bavarian technician of Hans-Dieter Flick, the one who bet by a combination of youth with 'heavy weights' to bend to the Greeks (2-0).

The Bayern Munich cost of the goals of Robert Lewandowski (69') and Perisic (89'), that went in in the second half, to add three points more than classify him mathematically for the eighth of final of the League of Champions. Regarding Coutinho, did not go in in the field until the minute 89 and did not have of time, in this sense, to do cost his quality.

Up to now 'Cou' had been playing in the best position for him, the one of stick with freedom to attack the area, shoot and give assistances to his mates from the balcony of the area. But after receiving praises by his fast adaptation, his level of performance has descended in the last weeks until relegarle to the bench, already in some parties under the control of Kovac and now in the first to the orders of Flick.

It hits it it is that, seeing his performance in the last parties, every time seems more to that player cabizbajo and grey that went out by the rear door of the Camp Nou.

There is not doubt any of his talent, but yes of his capacity to dazzle of usual way. Flick Will try reconducir the situation and take out the maximum benefit of his quality, but for the moment will throw of pragmatism and efficiency. What better work him in the short term, will be what more use. The paramount for the Bayern, now, is to recover the stability of results in the Bundesliga.
