Thiago Alcantara is so fun to watch.

Thiago Alcantara has spent the entire 2016-17 season turning every single Bayern Munich match into his personal highlight reel. Only a few midfielders in the world can be considered in the same category of greatness as Thiago, and he’s at the top of the list for me. He’s ratcheted up his performance on both sides of the ball and is more effective than he’s ever been. Watch out Europe, Thiago is coming.

That Robert Lewandowski fella is indispensable.

There are a lot of great players wearing a Bayern Munich jersey at the moment, but there’s only one player that the club can’t afford to lose. That man is Robert Lewandowski. The big Polish forward scores goals on goals on goals on goals, and he really doesn’t appear to be stopping anytime soon.

Thomas Müller looks to really be in good form... please don’t be hurt.

Thomas Müller was involved in four of the six goals that Bayern Munich scored against Augsburg. It’s taken him nearly the entire season, but Müller has finally found his role in Carlo Ancelotti’s system and looks to be playing great once again. However, a last ditch tackle from Christoph Janker sent Müller off the field due to an injured ankle. How serious? Hopefully, it’s not too bad, but we’ll have to wait and see.
