Kim Min-jae never seems to tire. He was Bayern Munich’s most active player against Darmstadt.
Bayern Munich defeated Darmstadt 8-0 in the ninth round of the 2023-24 German Bundesliga at the Allianz Arena in Munich, Germany, on Sunday at 10:30 p.m. ET. The win was their third in a row and puts them at the top of the table with seven wins and two draws (23 points).
Kim Min-jae was named to the starting lineup as usual. Munich lined up in a 4-2-3-1 formation with Harry Kane, Leroy Sane, Jamal Moussaoui, Kingsley Coman, Joshua Kimmich, Konrad Reimer, Alfonso Davies, Kim Minjae, Matthijs de Ligt, Nusair Mazrouei, and Manuel Neuer.
The first half was scoreless, with only three sending offs. Kimmich was shown a red card in the 4th minute and Klaus Zasula in the 21st minute. Matej Maglica was sent off in the 41st minute, leaving Munich with 10 men and Darmstadt with nine.
In the second half, it was a goal parade for Munich. Kane completed his hat trick with goals in the sixth, 24th, and 43rd minutes of the second half. Sane, Mkhitaryan, and Thomas Muller also found the back of the net. It was a cool victory for Munich.
Kim Min-jae, the “Korean Leagueer,” was a wall again. Playing the full game, he had 93 touches of the ball, a 92% pass completion rate, 14 passes into the attacking third, 4 successful long passes (6 attempts), 2 interceptions, 1 header clearance, 7 recoveries, and 7 aerial contests (8 attempts).
There was a particularly surprising stat. According to the Bundesliga’s official website, Kim Min-jae was the most active Munich player on the day. He sprinted a whopping 10.1 kilometers. In Darmstadt, Tim Schalke was first with 10.9 kilometers. 굿모닝토토 주소

In those nine games, Kim has traveled 91.2 kilometers, which ranks 34th among all Bundesliga players. In Munich, he is behind Kimmich (92.2 kilometers, 28th overall) and Davies (91.9 kilometers, 30th overall).
Despite the punishment, Kim keeps running.
