Winner 3-0 in their lair a week earlier, the club in the sky blue jersey (and fluorescent yellow for the occasion) has once again mastered its subject on the lawn of Munich.
If Haaland missed the mark in the first act by sending to the stands the penalty generously awarded to his team by Mr. Turpin (37e), the Norwegian caught up well in the second half, impeccable with composure and power on a counter quickly concluded before the hour mark (0-1, 57e).
