The Chaaaaaaaampionnnnssssssss!!!!! Yes, the UCL is back, and I can already hear the anthem. Bayern Munich is going to face a talented RB Salzburg side, and unless the lineup is legit, it is going to get exposed by Salzburg’s attack, which features players Bayern has been linked to in the past - Karim Adeyemi and Brenden Aaronson. With Goretzka, Neuer, Davies, and Musiala all out, Nagelsmann definitely faces a tricky challenge and needs to make the right choices in both defense and midfield to churn out a victory.

The game against Bochum was one to forget, and consolidating a spot in the top 8 of the UCL with a dominant, resounding victory against Salzburg in the first leg could do a lot to make amends and help us quickly forget that disaster class. The stage has been set. We roll.

Here are the main talking points of the podcast:

  • Salzburg’s form heading into the game
  • Nagelsmann’s tactics, formation, and what needs tweaking
  • A look at some of the talented Salzburg players and potential game-changers
  • The defensive conundrum, and possible picks for selection
  • Bayern lineup predictions
  • Some Gnabry and Upamecano criticism
  • A final scoreline prediction

As always, we love your feedback and appreciate all the support!
