Tah and Kimmich shine against Lewandowski and Chicharito

All that was lacking from a feisty affair between Bayer 04 Leverkusen and FC Bayern München were goals, though that was largely down to the eye-catching displays of Bayern's Joshua Kimmich and his Leverkusen counterpart, Jonathan Tah.

Reaction: Hear Lewandowski's thoughts on the draw

Given the array of goalscoring talent on parade, including Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez and Stefan Kießling in the home corner and Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Müller in the opposite camp, the fact neither net bulged at the BayArena may come as something of a surprise to many.

The mystery of the first goalless draw between these two sides in 52 meetings was spun by two young individuals whose names we are likely to hear a lot of in months and years to come: Tah and Kimmich.
