Pep Guardiola wasn’t whispering sweet nothings when he bemoaned the absence of David Alaba earlier in the campaign.
The full-back was sidelined for several months with a knee ligament injury and Bayern were hardly crumbling in his absence.
But he’s proved his worth in recent weeks with a string of brilliant performances – and some classy goals to boot.
After bagging a beauty against Stuttgart, Alaba hit another cracking free-kick tonight against Eintract Braunschweig in the German Cup.
