Bayern Munich is definitively picking it up right where they left off last season.
After a very successful season where they won the Bundesliga, the DFB Pokal and the UEFA Champions League under Jupp Heynckes’ management, Bayern Munich decided to go in another direction and signed Pep Guardiola to lead the team — and it’s safe to say the team could easily repeat the treble won last year.
Despite the fact that Guardiola’s tenure included a change of tactics and some changes in the team (like the departure of Mario Gomez and the arrival of Thiago Alcantara), Die Roten are absolutely dominating their competition once again and are currently riding an undefeated streak that 25 games today following a 2-0 win over Eintracht Braunschweig.
Arjen Robben was the one in charge of leading the team with two goals in the first half, but it has been really a team effort that has allowed the current European champions to remain undefeated. After losing the German Super Cup against Borussia Dortmund in what was Pep’s first official game with Bayern, the team hasn’t lost again and has been solid in every area of the pitch to maintain this streak.
With Bayern already leading in the next round of the UEFA Champions League with a comfortable lead in the Bundesliga and dubbed as the main favorites to win the Cup, Bayern might rest a few players to have them fully fit in the second part of the campaign. Nobody says that streak will go on through the reminder of the season, but one thing is certain: right now, they’re the hottest team in the world and it doesn’t seem like anyone can stop them any time soon.
