In Round 8 of the Bundesliga on Saturday, October 20, the VfL Wolfsburg – Bayern Munich match will be played. The match will take place on “Volkswagen Arena” starting at 14:30. Bavarians are trying to get the first victory after three disappointing stages.
After a season start in which they managed to tie victories, the “wolves” returned to the usual style of the last seasons, managing to score only three points in the last five stages. So, although they still keep in the middle of the table, it seems just a matter of time before they get to the red zone. In defeat in the previous round, 0-2 with Bremen, it was for the second time in the last three when the offensive failed to score the opponent’s goal. With Azzaoui, Camacho, Guilavogui and Klaus injured, Bruno Labbadia tries to find optimal solutions in front of a team that will have only one goal, namely victory.
On the other side, Niko Kovac’s band tries to come back after the disappointing evolutions with Hertha (0-2) and MtGladbach (0-3), the last one even on their own. With only one point accumulated in the last three stages, Bayern went down sixth in the standings and for the first time ever in the last seasons, his supremacy can be questioned. After good progress from the national team, James Rodriguez hopes to take a seat among the holders, while Robert Lewandowski will try to put an end to the drought. The Polish did not score any goals in the last four games in which he evolved. Kingsley Coman, Corentin Tolisso (injured) and Jerome Boateng (uncertain) are the only problems facing Niko Kovac.
In the last direct confrontation, disputed in February, Bayern had a 2-1 choir. It was the 7th success in the last eight straight games. Six of these games scored at least three goals.
