Despite escaping the international break without any new new injuries, Bayern Munich have been thrown a real doozy by whoever makes the Bundesliga schedule. Like seriously, why put a Friday game right after an international break for the team that has THE most international players in the league?
It’s frankly absurd and a huge detriment to player health. In any case, Thomas Tuchel will have to find a way to deal with it. Normally a relegation threatened FC Köln wouldn’t pose an issue, but post-break doldrums could make this game much closer than anyone thinks. Or it could be another 8-0 massacre, that’s also a possibility.
