Klaus Fischer saw a lot of ups-and-downs over the course of his 20-year career that included stops with Schalke 04, FC Köln, TSV 1860 Munich, and VfL Bochum. When the former star looks at state of Bayern Munich without Robert Lewandowski, Fischer knows things will not be easy against RB Leipzig.

“The game in Leipzig will be really tricky for Bayern as a result. A defeat, in conjunction with the loss of the top scorer, could lead to a crack,” said Fischer (per Abendzeitung). “It’s getting tight now.”

Certainly, the loss of Lewandowski is going to be extremely difficult for the Bavarians to overcome. Fischer, though, thinks a conservative approach — at least until the team is comfortable operating without their leading scorer.

“Taking as little risk as possible could be a sensible consideration. After all, a draw would be worth its weight in gold under the changed conditions,” Fischer found.

A draw might not seem like a bad idea, but Bayern Munich manager Hansi Flick and his boys will undoubtedly be playing to win. This Bayern Munich team is too proud to ever settle for a draw.
