By the 14th minute the sides had fully settled-in with Inter Milan's players having comfortable with their places in the defense, forcing Bayern Munich to become more patient before venturing into the first third. When Danijel Pranjic lost possession along the left to Maicon, Bastian Schweinsteiger was left to calm the team down, becoming a fulcrum in midfield, working the ball from flank-to-flank as a way to say "Calm down. Be patient. We don't need to do this all at once."
The match is, after all, drawn 1-1. Each team has a road goal, after Samuel Eto'o opened the scoring in the third minute. Since, Inter has not had another chance, while Julio Cesar has yet to be meaningfully threatened in the Nerazzurri goal.
The result is a match that can generously be called pensive, if you want to personify it. Bayern is trying to discern a means of breaking down Inter while protecting themselves against the holders' counters. As a result, we're even after 18 minutes, with Samuel Eto'o giving Inter a 1-0 lead on the day.
