(Berlin, 2nd comprehensive report) Without Lewandowski’s Bayern Munich, can it still defeat Leipzig, its rival for the title?
Bayern and Leipzig, who have occupied the top 2 in the Bundesliga for a long time this season, will compete for the title this round. Bayern currently ranks first with 61 points, while Leipzig is second with 57 points.
The key to the relationship championship
In this round, Leipzig will play against Bayern at home. If Leipzig wins, it will shorten the point difference with Bayern to 1 point; but if Bayern wins, it can extend the lead to 7 points, and the two teams will be after this round. , There are only 7 rounds left in the Bundesliga, so once Bayern further widens the gap, this also means that the Bundesliga title battle may end.
However, Leipzig has a good opportunity to win this round. First, they have an excellent recent record, coupled with their excellent home game ability, and second, Bayern will lose the striker Lewandre.
Levan needs 4 weeks of truce due to injury in international competition
Levan was injured during the international match day in the past week and he returned to Munich from the Polish national team early. After further detailed examination, the Bayern team doctor found that his right knee ligament was strained and will be out for 4 weeks. Therefore, not only will Lewandowski not be able to participate in this weekend’s title fight against Leipzig, but he will also miss the home and away rounds of the Champions League rematch against St. Germain in Paris.
Lewand has scored 35 goals for Bayern in the league. Without him, the team’s offensive firepower will definitely drop. Therefore, another member of the Bayern striker, Mueller, said he will stand up and lead the team through the difficulties. He said: “Our team will not only have one player, but will consist of many outstanding players. We still have a lot of options on the attack line. Now I need to send a pass to other teammates or enter the penalty area myself. Score a goal.”
Mueller plays an important role
Muller has played 24 times in the league this season, contributing 10 goals and 14 assists, and is Bayern’s best player after Lewandez.
Leipzig has achieved a strong record of 10 wins, 2 draws and only 1 loss at home in the league this season. The winning rate is as high as 76.9%. A total of 25 goals were scored and only 10 goals were lost. This is a great challenge for Bayern.
Bayern have been in the league for 2 years without a win over Leipzig
In addition, Bayern has not won Leipzig for two consecutive years in the league. Their past 4 matches in the league ended in a draw. In this regard, Muller said: “Leipzig’s outstanding performance is based on their team football and balance. They know what they want to do on the court. Their lineup is very balanced, they don’t depend on a certain player, they have multiple options for offense and defense, and they often switch between different formations.”
“But anyway, we went to Leipzig with a four-point lead. We haven’t lost to them before. The pressure is also on Leipzig.”
