Bundesliga: Bayern vs RBL

Bayern Munich vs RB Leizpig

If there is a coach who knows how to counter Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga, it is Nagelsmann.  Since he was still leading Hoffenheim, the strategist born in 1987 has become the star of the Gray Lobster.  In November 2016, when he was only 29 years old, Nagelsmann first met Bayern, helping Hoffenheim to win a 1-1 draw at Allianz Arena.  It was a match that Nagelsmann announced without a gap.  Both the Bundesliga began to pay respect to the young German general.

At Hoffenheim, Nagelsmann was unbeaten 3/6 times against Bayern (won 2, drew 1, lost 3).  And in all these 6 matches, his Hoffenheim has thrown Germany's number one power net.  Karl-Heinz Rummenigge because of his fondness for Nagelsmann, invited him to lead Bayern.  But in the end Nagelsmann landed in RB Leipzig in the summer of 2019 to be satisfied with building a long-distance strategy.  In the Bundesliga last season, Nagelsmann's RB Leipzig drew both matches with Bayern (0-0 and 1-1).

In general, Bayern always have many difficulties when meeting Nagelsmann's teams.  The 33-year-old coach has no secret but to establish a disciplined play style, high concentration and steady mentality for 90 minutes.  But that is what few Bundesliga coaches can do.

Tonight, Nagelsmann's RB Leizpig meets Bayern again in a special circumstance.  They are the two teams that are leading the Bundesliga standings with a gap of only 2 points (Bayern 22, RB Leipzig 20).  If Bayern wins, Hansi Flick's army will "cut off" the annoying opponent.  If Leipzig wins, Nagelsmann teachers and students will rise to the top of Bayern.

The important nature of the match at the Allianz Arena promises to bring the heat and determination to the highest level.  An interesting confrontation between the strongest attacker in the Bundesliga (Bayern has scored 31 goals) and the strongest defense in the tournament (RB Leipzig has only received 6 goals).

Nagelsmann's students have the right to think about conquering Neuer's net.  The Bundesliga champions have not kept a clean sheet in all eight matches.  From Stuttgart, Salzburg to Cologne, Neuer had to go into the net to pick up the ball.  Bayern's defense system is very problematic due to the rather volatile form of the defenders (only Lucas Hernandez is the most stable player).  Another weakness of Bayern is the limited ability to defend from a distance due to injury Kimmich.

Bayern has always been defensive since the beginning of the season.  And they did very well with 3.4 goals per game in the Bundesliga 2020/21.  Strikes with Thomas Mueller, Robert Lewandowski, Kingsley Coman on a beautiful day can send the rain of goals against any opponent.  But do not forget that last season, Leipzig completely blocked the Bayern attack in both matches (1-1, 0-0).  If Nagelsmann continues to counter the Gray Lobster, it will not be a surprise.
