With the international break finally over, Bayern Munich return to club football with one notable absentee — Robert Lewandowski. The Polish striker will be out for the next four weeks, meaning he will miss arguably the most critical month in any team’s season.
RB Leipzig are a team that Hansi Flick has never beaten. Julian Nagelsmann has a stellar record against Bayern Munich, and he will be licking his lips at the prospect of facing a team without their key man. With the title race as tight as it is, a loss here would blow the whole thing wide open.
Bayern have to prove that they’re not just reliant on one man. That means everyone — both the coach and the players — needs perform at 110% to make up for Lewy’s loss. Can they do it?
