Bayern Munich have done it again. Tasked with facing VfL Bochum, the Bavarian giants proved their giant status with a third 7-0 drubbing in just the last two seasons, and this performance may be the most convincing of all of them.
In a game that Bochum seemed to never be in, Bayern simply ran through the motions in high gear without skipping a beat, looking sharp throughout.
In this podcast, we go over the many factors that went into Bayern’s domination over Bochum:
- A look at the starting XI and the systemic changes Thomas Tuchel employed from the previous few matches.
- Where the system’s changes found new spaces and pockets for players to get creative and score from.
- How the team’s defensive resilience and focus came back to the fore.
- Why fans should be excited about Bayern and what we’ve learnt about the ever-evolving system.
