Wolfsburg – Bayern Munich
Wolfsburg hosts the champion Bayern Munich in a game from the 8th round of the German Bundesliga. Let’s take a look at this match, because it looks really important. Especially for the champions.
Wolfsburg are currently 9th in the Bundesliga standings with 9 points won so far and a record of 2 wins, 3 draws and 2 defeats. The bad thing about the Wolves is the fact that they are without a win in their last five games – they made three draws and they lost two of these matches. Including in the previous round against Werder Bremen. Now they will have a tough test against the best team in the country, but a team with serious problems at the moment.
Bayern Munich are not looking like themselves at the moment. Niko Kovac’ team is currently 6th in the league standings, trailing on 4 points behind the leader Borussia Dortmund. Bayern lost its last two games in the league and the team is currently in a run of three consecutive games without a win.
In the previous round Bayern suffered a devastating 0-3 loss against Borussia M’gladbach at the Allianz Arena. Many people are saying that Niko Kovac’ days in Munich are numbered. The Croatian coach is going through his first year in Bayern, but so far he’s far from impressive with his work. It’s still not clear what Bayern’s board is going to do, but another wrong step against Wolfsburg could mean the end for Kovac.
That’s why this game is so important for Bayern and their manager. Niko Kovac would like to keep his job, of course, but it could hardly happen if the Bavarians do not improve their results as soon as possible. But against Wolfsburg they will have an opponent which is ready to fight. It shall be very interesting.
