Champions League: Bayern Munich's Domination Continues

Ladies and gentlemen, we are about to embark on the true domination of German soccer in European competition again. Oh wait, we already started this last year when Bayern Munich yanked the torch from Barcelonas‘s grasp after defeating them 7-0 on aggregate en-route to their first Champions League title in years. The scary thing is, they deserved that exact score line.

Now, they are still running a route past all of their opponents in Europe once again, as they have manhandled each and every team that they have faced thus far. CSKA Moscow, Manchester City and Viktoria Plzen are their victims in a group where they lead with a perfect 5-5 record with a total of 15 points. They dominated each and every team they faced with their smart play under new manager Pep Guardiola.

The admirable aspect of this is the fact that Guardiola switched the system from their traditional 4-2-3-1 to a 4-1-4-1, and by doing so, the team barely had to jump through many hoops to succeed. At first, they did lose in the Super Cup to Borussia Dortmund, but they just ripped that team over the weekend by a score of 3-0.

Another positive note is that the team can now rely on both newcomers in the midfield: Mario Gotze and Thiago Alcantara, who are only now starting to play alongside one another after both of their injury layoffs. These two are truly the future of their respective nations (Germany and Spain), as they are putting in performances for the ages in the name of the club.

Basically, if this team keeps on playing the way they are, seeing them lose will no longer be an option, as they are still undefeated up until this point, excluding the Super Cup loss to Dortmund.
