Bayern is fifth (5th) in the table.
Yes, at the moment, they would be qualifying for the Europa League. But this will not be the case, maybe it’s just an atypical start … Or a strange Bundesliga.
Leader? The Dortmund of Favre.
The escort? The Borussia Monchengladbach.
And let no one ignore what Werder Bremen is doing with a project that -finally- flourished.
Let’s analyze the factors that have us like this:
The Kovac era
Honestly, I do not think Kovac is a coach to take over the reins of Bayern Munich.
I have nothing against him and I am not only guided by the current results. It’s simple, I do not see him as the right man to take on that challenge that has as its main goal a UEFA Champions League, just a tiny little thing.
You just have to see the last names that have passed through the benches …
However, its adaptation is being thick and leaving points in the way.
Bayern did not lose three consecutive games three years ago … And at that time they had already won the Bundesliga, so they played with a ‘D’ team or worse.
Some talk about how is being “made the bed” for Kovac. Are the players doing it wrong to get him fired?
For now, very low for the aspirations of that shield.
Does Dortmund have what it takes to compete for the title?
They have Paco Alcácer, the sensation in Germany.
But, seriously, what they have is insufficient. Or at least it is a very tight establishment, taking into account that they also participate in UCL.
They are young people with a projection (some living their first years in Germany) against a group of global stars already established in the country of the Oktoberfest.
In addition, his last victories leave more doubts than certainties.
We will have to continue watching them.
Here the viewer is winning. That one that already has 7 years in dictatorship on the Bundesliga.
In the others, those that the press does not name because they ignore them and settle for only the elite, they also give something to talk about.
Sorry, I had to say it.
Gladbach was able to beat Bayern in their own house and shows that it have to fight for European positions this season.
Here is also a Hazard who is flying.
The Werder Bremen of Kohfeldt is one of the best playing teams in Europe.
Good signings, illusion and a clear idea. International tournaments are in sight.
By the way…
Leverkusen, Hoffenheim and Schalke remain for another day. When they do something, I mean.
