Not everyone expected Benjamin Pavard to play such a central role during the first months at his new club Bayern Munich. The young Frenchman joined the German champions from VfB Stuttgart in this summer for a reported fee of £31 million. In the first 11 Bundesliga games, this season Pavard was in every single minute on the pitch. It’s the same for all four games of the group stage of the Champions League and the two DFB Cup fixtures against Cottbus and Bochum.
