Bayern Munich versus Paris Saint-Germain has in recent years become a headline fixture in the Champions League. Bayern take the first leg, 1-0; they’ll welcome PSG to Munich on March 8. Meister of the Match: Kingsley ComanIn the first half, Coman vs Achraf Hakimi was just a mismatch. Bayern switched it up for the second half just to ensure both PSG flanks were stretched to their limit. Knowing the way PSG operate, that kid will probably be winning the Champions League for Bayern Munich in 4-5 years.
December 12thSpeculation also hit that Bayern Munich CEO Oliver Kahn was scouting at the World Cup and the question had to be asked, “Can Bayern Munich win anything without Neuer?”Reports also broke that Bayern Munich was at least talking to Livaković. December 13thAh...the first time we heard the name of Yann Sommer linked to Bayern Munich — and it felt absurd to think it was even a possibility. December 14thOut of nowhere, former Bayern Munich prospect Christian Früchtl entered the fray and Livaković admitted he was open to a Bayern Munich move. At this point, everyone was getting antsy and our own Teddy implored Bayern Munich to sign him as the replacement. Gladbach inked its man, Jonas Omlin, and now Bayern Munich was fully free to make its move for Sommer.2 months ago Bavarian Football Works
No wonder Bochum recorded no shots at all in the first half and barely created anything the entire match. Julian Nagelsmann is still figuring João Cancelo outWhen Bayern snapped up João Cancelo from Manchester City, fans weren’t the only ones to be excited. Bayern triumphs without shaking off all the rustTo say that Bayern started 2023 poorly would be a massive understatement. Still, this is the best Bayern has looked since the Bundesliga restart and the hope will be that Bayern can keep this progress up. Soon after that, Bayern officially announced that “Ari” had signed his first professional contract with the club.1 month ago Bavarian Football Works
Bayern Munich scored a hatful of goals to crown yet another victory over Werder Bremen (Bremen must be sick of the sight of Bayern by now). The team got off to a flying start yet again and although Bremen initially pegged back Germany’s Rekordmeister, Bayern got the job done in style. Bayern is beginning to master the art of chaosIn almost every Bayern game, there tends to be chaotic phases. The first 15 minutes of this game was no exception; yet, despite Bremen’s roaring comeback, Bayern quickly scored a few goals to steady the ship. Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting’s most important contributions aren’t his goalsHis goals mean a lot and helped Bayern secure a vital win against Hertha Berlin.4 months ago Bavarian Football Works
The nominees for the FIFA 23 Team of the Year (TOTY) have been released and there’s no guarantee that everyone will be happy about the selection of the nominees. This is a new series that I will be doing where I analyze the nominees for the Attackers, Midfielders, and Defenders + GK. Davies and Hakimi are still two of the best wingbacks in the game while Upamecano and Gvardiol are absolute beasts in defense. Rudiger is also another notable omission as he has been a good defender for Real Madrid and is the reason why Germany managed to last until Matchday 3.

With all the injuries, Bayern Munich were always going to field a weird lineup today. Bayern Munich have not won a game since November, which is a pretty long streak for a club of this stature. If they all get ruled out, then Bayern will have no less than EIGHT players out injured vs Wolfsburg, a staggering number for any team. In the latest episode, Chuck previews the game vs Wolfsburg, does a retrospective on the winter transfer window, and talks about a lot more besides.

Looks like Julian Nagelsmann was happy with what he saw from Bayern Munich versus RB Leipzig, because here we have the exact same lineup. Starting the year with a draw definitely wasn’t ideal, but thanks to the cramped schedule, Bayern Munich can make things right straight away. Julian Nagelsmann is under pressure from the media to start Thomas Muller, especially after the attack looked toothless versus RB Leipzig. Meanwhile, FC Koln, high on the back of a 7-1 win, will be looking to cause an upset. Looking for an unending well of Bayern Munich content?1 month ago From Bavarian Football Works
Franck Ribéry is, without a doubt, one of the greatest players in Bayern Munich history. Now that Franck is hanging up his boots, we at BFW decided to get together and celebrate our favorite Ribéry moments at FC Bayern. I never experienced a Franck Ribéry south of the age of 30 live but he is still one of the best players I’ve ever watched, which is a testament to his true quality. Soundz58For me, it’s hard to think of Franck Ribéry without Arjen Robben and vice versa.
