Kim Min-jae started as a left central defender in the away game against Borussia Mönchengladbach in the 3rd round of the 2023-24 Bundesliga held in Mönchengladbach, Germany on the 3rd (Korean time) and effectively blocked the opponent’s attack until the final whistle. .

Bayern Munich won 2-1, making it their third consecutive win since the opening game. 2nd place in the league. They also fell one goal behind Leverkusen, who had three wins, in goal difference.

Kim Min-jae, who moved from Italian champion Napoli to German champion Bayern Munich this summer, has played in all four games the team has played this season, but this is his first full-time game. He appeared as a substitute in the Super Cup (a one-game match between last season’s Bundesliga winner and the FA Cup (DFB-Pokal) winner) held prior to the league’s opening last month, and appeared as a starter in the previous two league games, but stepped down as a substitute in the second half. It is interpreted as a measure taking into account adaptation to a new team and decline in physical strength due to completing basic military training.

Kim Min-jae’s full-time performance on this day can be seen as meaning that he has fully adapted to the new team and prepared physically, and is one step ahead of the competition for the starting position.

Bayern Munich gave the opponent’s Japanese defender Ko Itakura the opening goal in the 30th minute of the first half.

However, in the 13th minute of the second half, Leroy Sane leveled the game with a left-footed shot assisted by Jojua Kimmich, and in the 42nd minute of the second half, Mathis Tell scored the winning goal with his head from a corner kick.

Harry Kane, who has been eating together with Kim Min-jae instead of Son Heung-min since this season, started as a starter and played until he was replaced in extra time in the second half, but did not score a goal. Kane scored in both of his first two league games but was silent in his third.

Whoscored.com, a soccer statistics site, gave Kim Min-jae a rating of 6.96 on this day, saying he recorded two interceptions and two clearances. It was higher than the team average of 6.88. Among the four defenders, it was the second highest after left fullback Alphonso Davis (7.23). Dayot Upamecano (6.27) and right-back Nusair Mazrawi (5.87), who paired Kim Min-jae with center back, received below-average ratings.

Kimmich, who recorded two assists, received the highest rating with 8.91 points, and Sane, who scored the tying goal and hit the post once in the first half, also scored 8.77 points.
