Canadian superstar Alphonso Davies became the youngest non-German player to make 100 Bundesliga appearances for Bayern Munich, and the century performance came in a crucial win to boost FC Bayern’s title hopes.

Davies started at left-back and played all 90 minutes in Saturday’s 2-1 win away to VfB Stuttgart, a match the Bavarians couldn’t afford to lose with Borussia Dortmund and Union Berlin still hot on their heels in the Bundesliga title race.

The Edmonton native had game-highs in successful dribbles with nine, four created chances, and 14 duels won.

Another elite performance we’ve come to expect from the face of the Canadian men’s national team.

You might be wondering what this means for João Cancelo, who didn’t leave Manchester City to sit on Bayern’s bench, but did so again for 90 minutes on Saturday after playing just 12 minutes in a crucial game against title challengers Union Berlin last week.

“João’s handling the situation well. I don’t have impression that he’s breaking off. Stanišić is a bit more defensive, that’s the reason,” Bayern manager Julian Nagelsmann said post-match.

And for the travelling Bayern Munich fans who wanted nothing less than three points after a two-and-a-half-hour drive, they left Mercedes-Benz Arena worse off than they found it.
