For many, this is almost starting to be considered a formality, but winning the Bundesliga isn’t that easy, because it is one of the most competitive leagues in Europe. Turns out that the solidity and quality of Bayern München continue being too much for competition and the titles keep coming.
BREMEN MADE THEIR LIFE HARD
Bayern München would be waiting for a more relaxed night before starting their celebrations of another German title, but they needed to work very hard to beat a fierce and desperate Werder Bremen.
The home side is on the relegation zone and they come into each match as if it was the last one of their life, which means Bayern had to work hard to breach the resistance of the home side.
Robert Lewandowski gave the advantage to the Bavarians close to half-time, but during the 2nd half, Alphonso Davies would eventually be sent off, which led to a final assault to Manuel Neuer’s goal that was close to being effective and almost postponed the title celebrations.
The German goalkeeper had to work hard with an extraordinary save right at the 90th minute that, in a certain way, shows why this Bayern is practically indestructible in Germany.
Besides having the best players and the best football, every time things don’t go as well as expected and their opponents are able to pose a threat to their goal, they still have to get through a giant obstacle between the posts.
Manuel Neuer is clearly one of the best goalkeepers in the world and one of the best of all time, highlighting that he recently renewed his contract with the club.
NOW COMES THE DFB POKAL
After ensuring another Bundesliga title with 2 rounds to go until the end of the competition, Bayern might start to prepare for the next objective which will be winning the DFB Pokal.
On July 4th, Bayern München faces Bayer Leverkusen and they will try to secure the “double” against an opponent that is still involved in a fierce fight for the 4th place of the Bundesliga, which is why they can’t afford to manage
their resources at this stage.
Bayer Leverkusen is paying well above that (5.00), but betting on the club led by Peter Bosz to lift the trophy will allow you to win in case the “underdogs” win by any method, including extra time and penalties.

But the work that is being made by Hansi Flick since he took over the club already during this season has been outstanding.
Since he replaced Niko Kovac in charge, Bayern became a demolishing squad that recovered easily from the disadvantage they had in the Bundesliga to the point of winning the league still with matches left to be played.
LONG WAIT UNTIL THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE’S FINAL 8
Bayern is also still involved in the Champions League and after winning by 3-0 at Stamford Bridge in the 1st leg of the 8th finals of the competition, only a disaster would knock them out from the final 8 that should take place in Portugal between 12th and 23rd of August.
Still, the team will have to play the 2nd leg match against Chelsea on a date to be announced. In any case, that will be their only official encounter between July 4th – date of the DFB Pokal final – and August 12th – first day of the Champions League’s final 8.
For that reason, Hansi Flick needs to manage the roster well trying to make sure they don’t lose their actual moment of form and intensity, but that at the same time not demanding too much from them at a stage where there won’t be competition.

It will certainly be a new field of work for the German manager who will need to count with all of the club’s technical staff during this process, from assistant managers, physiotherapists, physios and medical staff.
According to the latest odds available, Bayern was already at the top of the list of favourites in the Champions League as a consequence of their great performance at Stamford Bridge and their excellent recovery in the Bundesliga. Clubs like Barcelona, Manchester City, Atlético de Madrid or PSG are equally well priced to fight for the European title during the month of August, but is this the year where
Bayern will finally win the Champions League again after a drought of 7 years?
