It’s been a couple of months since Bayern Munich last won the Champions League, but the boys are already revving up to win more.
First up is the group stage, and UEFA have given us the pleasure of facing Diego Simeone’s Atletico Madrid in the very first game. Hansi Flick has never failed to win a UCL game, but with weary legs and injuries taking their toll, the mastermind behind Bayern’s 2020 treble may have met his match. These guys knocked out Liverpool last season. They knocked Bayern out in 2016. They sucker punch big clubs on a regular basis. Taking them lightly is not an option. Can Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Muller break down Simeone’s watertight defense? Or will the Iron Wall of the Colchoneros claim another hapless victim?
Well the first game went well, but now we have a second one coming up. Still the same question — plus Atleti have only gotten more formidable.
