He did for the goal but made a good save from the one on one later. Bayern cutting them to ribbons. High line against Bayern is suicide.
To be fair, it was just a ball over the top from the keeper for the third, not really a "defence to high" issue. If the keeper stays in his 6 yard box they probably don't score the third. He did make a good 1v1 save, but was also a bit weak for Bayern's 2nd which was just a bobbler from outside the box.

The crowd 'noise' makes it much better to watch on TV.

Still shouldn't be getting in behind from a long straight ball like that, far too easy. Keeper made it easy for Gnabry no doubt.

The quality of defending in Bundesliga has been poor IMO. Makes for goals and high scoring games so not complaining. The art of defending seems to be forgotten in general in most leagues.

I'm sold on the crowd noise too.

Hope the PL follow suit it's not the same obv but it just adds a bit more normality and forces the commentators to raise their voices too.

The zero noise means the commentators are very quite and conversational, Paul Dempsey being particularly guilty of that. with no noise there's more focus on the thud of the ball the players shouting the other intermittent sounds etc all takes away from the football

I guess what I'm saying is the artificial crowd noise helps me focus on the football not the weirdness, so I like it.

Was just thinking the same thing, when the BL started back up I was switching games off because I found it unwatchable.

Just having the ‘white noise’ of a crowd makes such a difference.
