Build-up as it happens

In January, Bayern signed centre-back Serdar Taşçı when they were missing three defenders through injury.

He made his debut on 20 February, starting the Bundesliga tie against Darmstadt, but was substituted early in the second half after making a mistake which saw Bayern concede. Since then, Taşçı has had to wait for another chance. On Saturday, two months after making his FCB bow, the former Stuttgart captain returned to the lineup at Hertha.

“Taşçı showed me today that I have been unfair to him,” Josep Guardiola said after the game. “He had an amazing game. He will be of help in the future.”
