Bayern Munich – Wolfsburg
The champion Bayern Munich hosts Wolfsburg in a game from the 25th round of the Bundesliga. Let’s examine this clash at the Allianz Arena in the Bavarian capital.
Bayern Munich continues the fight for the title with Borussia Dortmund. At this point, Dortmund is still leading the standings with 54 points, but Bayern has the same amount of points as the leader. After four consecutive wins and some bad form by Borussia Dortmund, Bayern is once again in a very good position to chase the title.
How we said, Niko Kovac’ team is enjoying a run of four consecutive wins in the league. In their last Bundesliga game, Bayern celebrated an amazing 5-1 win during the tough visit to Borussia M’gladbach. It was expected that it’s going to be a hard game for the Bavarians, but they did everything perfectly on the pitch. Robert Lewandowski scored a brace for the visitors, while Javi Martinez, Thomas Muller and Serge Gnabry also scored for Bayern.
It will be curious to see how Niko Kovac will approach the game against Wolfsburg. Just a few days later Bayern will have to face Liverpool in a second 1/8-finals game from the Champions League. Logic says that they shall keep some of their star players for this clash.
Meanwhile, Wolfsburg is having a very good season so far. Right now the Wolves are 7th in the league with 39 points, being just one point behind the 5th Eintracht and on par with the 6th Bayer Leverkusen. If they keep their level until the end of the season, they will have a realistic chance to qualify for the European competitions. In their last game, Wolfsburg made a 1-1 draw with Werder at home. They are unbeaten in their last five games in the league.
That’s our take on the Bundesliga clash between Bayern Munich and Wolfsburg on Saturday. Good luck!
