Ruckrunde time! The second half of the season starts around the same time as it usually does — but usually for Bayern Munich, the team isn’t coming into this game with the full complement of rest that they are used to.
That shouldn’t be a big problem, though. Schalke are in a dire state right now, and it’s doubtful whether there’s a worse team in the top 5 leagues. Sheffield United have fewer points in the EPL, but they outperform the Royal Blues in most statistical metrics. It’s hard to see how they’ll even win another game, let alone surive the relegation fight they find themselves in.
However, this is the perfect game for Bayern to screw up. If Hansi doesn’t take it seriously enough, things could end in a shock defeat, the same way it did against Holstein Kiel. With memories of that wound still fresh, hopefully Bayern will take this seriously.
