Why Bayern Munich will Bounce Back in Europe
It says much about the level of expectation at the Allianz Arena that despite winning the Bundesliga by 10 points this season, the year has been widely labelled as a disappointment for Pep Guardiola’s side.
The campaign began in expectant and resounding fashion with the German side not losing a game in any competition throughout the first half of the season, but a Champions League exit by eventual winners Barcelona ultimately defined Guardiola and Bayern Munich’s season this time around.
A 3-0 first leg deficit courtesy of a Lionel Messi brace and a late Neymar goal proved too much to overturn for the Bavarians, but the German champions showed they could at least match the eventual European champions with a 3-2 win in the second leg.
Injuries did play their part with talismen Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery making just 12 league appearances between them after the Winter break and question marks over the clubs older guard of players have led to plenty of speculation for Bayern Munich in the transfer market.
A move for Manchester United midfielder Angel di Maria has rumoured to have been sounded out, but the capture of Atletico Madrid midfielder Antoine Griezmann seems far more likely.
Bayern’s attention to youth may start within their own ranks with forward Sinan Kurt having made several senior appearances last season, but the promise shown by winger Marco Stefandl remains highly anticipated after an explosive campaign for the under-17 set up last season.
Off-the field problems with long-serving club doctor Muller-Wohlfahrt over a broken “bond of trust”, led to the shock departure of the renowned doctor, but any talk and rumours of Guardiola leaving the Allianz Arena continue to look unfounded.
Another resounding domestic tital victory can be backed at 1.10 in the Bundesliga betting markets, but a stronger European showing this time around looks well priced in the antepost betting markets, with the German champions well placed to move their domestic dominance of three straight Bundesliga titles onto the European stage.
