What happened? Ribéry was only put on the bench by trainer Niko Kovac on Matchday 3 and not taken over. It must be said that two replacements of the Bayern coach were based on injuries. First, the injured Corentin Tolisso had to be replaced in the 40th minute. James came for him. In the 83rd minute, Kovac faced the following failure: after a nasty violation by Karim Bellarabi, the game also ended for Rafinha. For the Brazilian Kovac David Alaba sent the field.
