Bayern Munich midfielder Joshua Kimmich did what some say is close to impossible. The 20-year-old footballer managed to contain Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez in the 0-0 draw this Saturday, largely relegating him to a non-factor during the fame.
While Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola conceded that his side played poor in the first half, he hailed Kimmich, saying he “turned in an exceptional display in central defense" that kept both Chicharito and Stefan Kiessling from scoring.
He got up, smiled and thumbed up to Chicharito. That's our sweet boy! ♥ pic.twitter.com/FzmjR4z3Jl— Es Müllert Wieder! (@Team_Mueller) February 7, 2016
However, Bayern cannot proclaim a victory as according to experts the team is in the midst of a center-back crisis. Only is Holger Badstuber available, which makes the club vulnerable and leaves them with little chance of beating Bayer Leverkusen.

Bayer Leverkusen has undergone a tactical resurgence this season with the arrival of Chicharito who arrived after leaving Manchester United in the summer. The Mexican forward has flourished in his new club and is currently fourth in the scoring charts in Germany's top flight.
