Our parting shot as a blog is a collective evaluation of the 2017-18 season with thoughts on the future. In what state is the team?
In a gripping game against Real Madrid, Bayern displayed some strong moments. James Rodríguez stood out as the pivot in attack, as Thomas Müller and others failed to take their chances yet again.
Bayern’s lineup will no doubt include the top guns to shock the defending Champions League holders Real Madrid, who are deemed by most to be favourites.
Bayern proved how efficient they have become by playing a composed second half away to the newly promoted side. Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Müller came off the bench to excel.
The best team in Germany showed their relentless appetite on a night where Bayer Leverkusen felt they really had a chance to progress to Berlin. Sven Ulreich and Thomas Müller epitomized these traits.
Sandro Wagner and others spearheaded an extremely dominant 5:1 win for Bayern against Borussia Mönchengladbach in Munich on Saturday.
The soon-to-be-crowned German champions will face an optimistic Sevilla side in Munich on Wednesday for a Champions’ League semi-final berth. Bayern could field a revved-up XI for that.
Joshua Kimmich dominated the defence and James Rodriguez racked up more assists in an overall great title-winning performance in Augsburg.
The final international break of the footballing season is over, and it is time to look at how Bayern’s stars performed when called upon by their respective nations. There were a few standouts.
Jérôme Boateng and Toni Kroos played their roles better than the others in a mediocre draw where no one stood out.
