After their 2-1 defeat of Bayer Leverkusen, Bayern Munich moved one step closer to wrapping up their 24th Bundesliga title. Astoundingly, they could have the league wrapped up by the end of March. Pep Guardiola’s juggernaut is seemingly unstoppable, unbeaten domestically since the German Super Cup final in August.
The former Barcelona boss has infused his tiki taka style of football with typical ruthless German efficiency. Arsene Wenger stated after their Champions League game last week that this side is more vulnerable than last season’s treble winning squad. I disagree. In my view, this Bayern team even tops Pep’s all-conquering Barca side of 2010-2011. It’s terrifyingly strong and can hurt you from all angles. If plan A doesn’t work, they’ve got a plan B and plan C for good measure.
It’d be quite a sight to see a Bayern-Barca Champions League final: the originals versus the new and improved version.
