After the surprise elimination in the Champions League against Villarreal, the Bavarian club activated on the market: Matthijs De Ligt, Ryan Gravenberch, Noussair Mazraoui and Mathys Tel came to prepare for the future.

Sadio Mané makes him the new headliner in this rejuvenated Bayern.

The Senegalese striker came to compensate for the departure of Robert Lewandowski.

The Polish striker imitated, among others, by Niklas Süle, Corentin Tolisso and Tanguy Kouassi.

BVB have also lost their favorite striker: Erling Haaland has joined Manchester City.

Manuel Akanji and Axel Witsel have also left the club.

Sébastien Haller, Nico Schlotterbeck, Karim Adeyemi, Niklas Süle, Anthony Modeste and Salih Özcan have come to reinforce the yellow and black squad.

Two up and down teams

In the league, the Bavarian team is starting its season with a bang.

Three games, three wins and above all 15 goals scored.

Before a stoppage.

Three draws in a row in the Bundesliga then a defeat on the field of Augsburg.

A "

mini-crisis, for a club in obligation of results like Bayern

" details Patrick Guillou, commentator of the championship across the Rhine for

beIN Sport


In the Champions League, Julian Nagelsmann's team does not experience failure.

Three successes in as many games, including a stinging 5-0 this Wednesday against Viktoria Plzen.

Bayern have put the postman back on the bike!

Bad passes are relative.

For Dortmund, it's different

” notes the former defender trained in Germany.

In the Bundesliga, the BVB has five wins and already three losses, but the four successes acquired on the score of 1-0 are stains.

It's much better on the European scene for Edin Terzic's group, with two victories including a 4-1 on the lawn of Seville.

Two teams that are gradually finding color, but are experiencing deeper difficulties.

Very different problems

In defense we were stable, we gave them almost no chance.

It will be important against the Dortmund attack which awaits us on Saturday

,” said Manuel Neuer on Wednesday after the success in the Champions League.

In the league, Bayern have conceded five goals in their last six games.

Efficiency concerns in some matches as well.

With the departure of a pure scorer like Lewandowski and the arrival of a free spirit like Sadio Mané, the team is no longer the same.

Sometimes she shines: nine goals scored in the last two games.

Sometimes, she looks for herself and skates: four goals scored between the 4th and 7th day of the championship.

However, Patrick Guillou assures him: “

Bayern has put the postman back on the bike!

In Dortmund, the team is also struggling to set itself up and Edin Terzic is still looking for the right formula.

The coach, who arrived this summer, having to do without Sébastien Haller, away from the field for testicular cancer, yet headliner of the new project.

In Dortmund, we had to review the offensive animation since everything had been prepared with the arrival of Haller,

Forced to see that Anthony Modeste, a similar player, cannot manage to put himself in a situation to shine


According to the former defender, the departure of Erling Haaland is "

perhaps very significant in Dortmund


More than we could see.

Already a turning point?

A bad pass which “

makes disorder in Dortmund, because the recruitment has been substantial

” insists Patrick Guillou.

More than 90 million euros spent this summer by the leaders of the yellow and black, against 78 million euros in revenue thanks to sales, including 60 for the sole sale of the Norwegian striker.

A match which exceptionally will oppose the 3rd to the 4th during this 9th day of the German championship.

However, this match will not draw the season according to the expert.

It will not be a turning point.

On the other hand, if Bayern have been champions for ten years it is because they leave very few points in the direct confrontation matches against the first five in the championship.

Points are worth double in this type of match.


Bayern despite everything ultra favorite?

With seven victories in the last seven direct confrontations, the FCB advances as the favorite this Saturday.

The BVB should be "

prepared for a very motivated Bayern team

" launched Leon Goretzka.


We know that there is a good team and a difficult match awaiting us there,

" said captain Manuel Neuer.

An always special match against Dortmund

” says Julian Nagelsmann.

The Bavarian coach can count on Joshua Kimmich, back from Covid-19.

Even if they are going to play in front of 80,000 people, Bayern are the clear favorites for this match,

” concludes Patrick Guillou.

Answer this Saturday from 6:30 p.m.
