    also, looks like cameron’s starting in midfield. considering he’s been (by all reports) hapless in his last few games at the back, i’m just glad he’s on the field at all.

    Green is not even on the bench for Bayern. They have another game on Saturday vs. Hamburg. If he’s going to get playing time I’d think it would be in that game. If he’s still stuck to the bench at that point, I’d think he’s unlikely to break in anytime soon unless there is a Lewandowski injury.

    Great to see CCV getting time today! It feels like there is a Yanks Abroad revival this year!

      Lewandowski has lead his teams or been second in minutes played each of his last five seasons. Last year he lead all other Bayern field players in minutes by 181 minutes, two entire games worth. Robben, Kimmich, Sanches, and Coman the offensive bench players today hard to justify putting Green or any American above that group.
