After dispatching RB Leipzig and Barcelona with relative ease, Bayern Munich face their true nemesis — VfL Bochum. True, they’re not a Champions League level team, in fact they’re struggling to keep their heads above the water in the Bundesliga, but that’s what makes this game so difficult.

Bayern can’t possibly lose this game, can they?
