MSR-EN024 A title, the semifinals and a new trainer

Bayern Munich had a busy week with a 0:0 draw surrounded by a couple of goalfests. Even off the pitch things got interesting as the team welcomes Niko Kovac as Jupp Heynckes’ heir-apparent as well as some sad news about Arturo Vidal.

Marc Almstedt joins host Susie Schaaf to run through all the good stuff.

The Augsburg match is the first item on deck as the pair discuss FCA’s first half press, and the general lack of lustre surrounding Bayern’s sixth consecutive title win on the trot. Moving on to the Sevilla game, Marc and Susie never really thought Bayern’s progression was in doubt, although the Spanish side did have their chances. The overtly physical (murderous) play of the away team would be a cause for concern, but the duo agree that FCB were able to keep their heads straight, and are entering the semifinals suffering zero suspensions (out of a possible six).

The devastation of Gladbach was fun for all Bayern fans to watch– although it did not necessarily seem like that from the start of the match. Does going down a goal early– like Bayern is prone to do– help or hurt the team down the stretch?

The podcast closes out with the pair’s opinions on the Kovac hiring, and what Arturo Vidal’s injury means for the team moving forward through the crux of the season.

Thank you, as always, for listening. Mia san mia.
