With only three points from the first three Bundesliga games in 2023, Bayern got off to a bad start. If you want to see the situation positively, it should be noted that nothing worse has happened with the three draws.
Munich are still at the top of the table and are represented in the DFB Cup and the Champions League. The world, which at first glance is still intact, could, however, prove to be deceptive.
In the Bundesliga, Union, Leipzig and Dortmund were able to gain one, two and three points and in the cup, the away game in Mainz is not a matter of course. In the current form you are also in the premier class against PSG in the outsider role.
Stefan Effenberg is concerned about the current situation. “It’s already a tense situation. They wanted to get nine points in the English week, it was three in the end. That’s not enough,” he criticized in the “Sport 1 double pass”.
The team lacks “the naturalness and the relaxed atmosphere” and they “don’t play the football they can play.” If no results follow, it could “look really bad in three to four weeks.”
A look at the calendar proves Effenberg right. Munich are threatened with being eliminated from two cup competitions and losing the top of the table if nothing fundamentally changes in the next few weeks. The club has recognized the signs of the times and demands full focus.
Therefore, Gnabry even took action in public because of his trip to Paris. Pavard’s relegation to the bench was also a clear sign. In Munich, there seems to be a great deal of concern about missing out on the desired goals.
For this reason, the club has also added to the transfer market and brought a real top player to Munich in Cancelo. If FC Bayern takes such unusual measures in winter, it must really seethe on Säbener Straße. The transfer coup also managed to divert attention from the mini sporting crisis. Before the cup game in Mainz, that can only be positive.
Effenberg’s contribution to the Bayern crisis: “Could look very bad in three to four weeks” first appeared on Current FC Bayern News.
