Bayern Munich- The Stalwarts

Bayern Munich team

It’s no doubt that the German champions will be on everyone’s eyes. They have got enormous amount of talent. Both in Thier starting lineup as well as in their backups. It’s one of the main reasons for their success. The amount of squad depth they have is amazing.

Attacking quality options are abundant. Young wingers in Gnabry, Coman and Sane make the goods. Combined with the most prolific striker in Europe you’ve hit the jackpot. Robert Lewandowski- the name is enough.

The midfield even with the absence of Thiago Alcantara is solid enough. Loren Goretzka has shown his potential. The defensive midfield was outstanding in the Champions League. The amount of distance he covered was priceless.

The defence again is so solid. They’ve got fullbacks who can run riot. Alphonso Davies was the player to look out for last season. Joshua Kimmich is already a known name across Europe. Consistent and efficient. That’s the way to summarise the fullabacks. Coming to centre backs Bayern have just the right balance. Experience and youngsters. Alaba and Boateng ahve loads of experience. Now they will pass the mantle to Niklas Sule and Hernandez.

Players to look out for!

Benjamin Pavard

Benjamin Pavard is definitely one of the players to look out for. The French defender wasn’t fully used this season but is bound to make more of an impact next season. Pavard’s versatility is out of the this world. He can play as a centre back, right back as well as defensive midfield. All of these qualities make him very important to any squad. Hansi Flick is lucky to have such a player.

Joshua Kimmich

With Thiago Alcantara set to move out, a lot of the responsibility falls on Kimmich. Played at RB last season, he was on the best players . However his accurate passing make him an equally capable midfielder. With great defensive abilities he can make a difference in the midfielder. Moreover he’s blessed with natural leadership and has Munich in his blood.

Predictions for 2020-21 Bundesliga Season

Robert Lewandowski

It’s hard to not see positive outcomes for Bayern next season. A team as fluid and well run that they are is bound for success. They’ve made some good signings no doubt but they’re losing a very crucial player. Moreover they haven’t found a direct replacement.

Bayern Munich will be able to retain the Bundesliga title and continue Thier dominance domestically. However European challenge will be tougher. The will need to ensure that the loss of Thiago doesn’t cause a lot of difference.
