NAfter their disappointing Champions League exit, FC Bayern wants to quickly add a sense of achievement in the Bundesliga. With a win this Sunday at Arminia from Bielefeld, who are threatened with relegation, the Munich team would like to get a “matchball game” for the tenth championship in a row. That’s how coach Julian Nagelsmann described the planned starting position for the top game at home against pursuers Borussia Dortmund on April 23rd.
Munich are currently six points ahead of their long-time rival, who won 6-1 against VfL Wolfsburg on Saturday. On Tuesday, FC Bayern was eliminated in the quarter-finals of the Champions League for the second time in a row.
Greuther Fürth needs a win away from TSG 1899 Hoffenheim. Otherwise, the Franks are threatened with relegation. If Bielefeld succeeds in surprising Munich and loses the cloverleaf, relegation is sealed.
