While many other big-name teams in the continent flounder, Bayern Munich just seem to be getting better and better.
The German champions have won their last nine games on the bounce, are scoring goals for fun (45 goals in those nine games to be exact), and just look like the best team in the world right now.
This weekend, the ‘best team in Europe’ face off against ‘fairly bad team who are based in Europe’ Eintracht Frankfurt, in their last game before the international break – yes, there’s another one…
Here’s how Bayern should line up on Sunday…
Manuel Neuer (GK) – It’s Manuel Neuer. You know how good he is, and you know that he starts every single game.
Niklas Sule (RB) – Honestly, we still are in shock that Niklas Sule is actually quite a good right-back. He does not look like a right-back – at all.
Dayot Upamecano (CB) – With each passing game Upamecano looks more confident, more assured, and more like a Bayern stalwart. Fantastic signing.
Lucas Hernandez (CB) – So key to how Julian Nagelsmann’s team functions. If he can stay fit (yep, that’s a big ‘if’), Bayern could be set for another treble-winning season.
Alphonso Davies (LB) – The funnest player to watch in Europe? Probably.
Joshua Kimmich (CM) – The best footballer in the world.
Leon Goretzka (CM) – One half of the best midfielder pairing in Europe right now, the German international has blossomed into a world class player in recent seasons.
Thomas Muller (AM) – It would literally be a miracle of Muller didn’t set up another goal in this game. A miracle. He’s too good.
Serge Gnabry (RW) – Scored the goal of the game in the 5-0 win over Dynamo Kyiv. Chelsea and Tottenham fans hate him, Bayern fans bloody love him.
Robert Lewandowski (ST) – The best striker in the world. He scores in every single game, and he’ll score at least 20 this weekend against an average Frankfurt team.
Leroy Sane (LW) – He’s finally back to his best. Sane was absolutely unplayable on Wednesday evening, and will look to continue that form into the weekend.
