Bayern Munich’s first game back and of 2024 is a friendly match against next-door neighbors FC Basel. Try as they might, Bayern could not find a way through the Swiss team’s structure and were shutout for the most part of the game. The match eventually ended in a 1-1 draw. In this pod, RIPLT features in his pod debut and talks about the following:

  • A look at the lineups from both teams
  • Aleksandar Pavlović can make a proper pass; is he Bayern’s next Thiago?
  • Leroy Sané and Alphonso Davies were frustrating in this game
  • The match served as proving grounds for the youth and they did alright
  • Passing around too much is not good, so is not doing it enough
  • Basel played really well and gave Bayern hell (bars)
  • Bayern can still be stifled even with a near full strength team
  • A preview of Bayern’s upcoming January and February games up to the first leg of the Champions League
