Flick – Bayern looking to cause mini upset in Paris

Bayern Munich manager has called on his players to be more clinical and force Paris Saint-Germain into mistakes as they try to overturn the first leg 3:2 defeat in today's UCL quarterfinal second leg at the Parc Des Princes. The defending champions dominated the first leg for long periods but missed loads of chances as they lost their first game in the UEFA Champions League in more than two years. However, Flick has expressed confidence that his side will respond positively. "We had many chances but we were not as decisive as we should have been and we have to improve," Flick said during a news conference yesterday. "We will do everything we can and approach the game with optimism. "We have to make sure tomorrow (today) we show the same ambition that PSG showed against us. We have...

Bayern and Porto must do it the hard way to progress

UEFA Champions League action returns today as Chelsea play hosts to Porto in Seville while Paris Saint-Germain host Bayern Munich at Parc Des Princes in the second leg of their respective quarter-final encounters. Chelsea and Porto are wrestling for a place in the last four in a neutral venue and the Blues currently have the advantage after beating the Portuguese outfit 2 nil in the first leg at the same venue. Porto will be keen to overturn the deficit which is a gargantuan task and we wait to see if manager Sergio Conceicao will be willing to feature Sergio Oliveira in this game having missed the first leg of the clash. Both sides are coming off the back of domestic wins and will be brimming with confidence. Porto will be expected to take the game to Chelsea in this one and if t...

RB Leipzig proving worthy competitors against Bayern in the Bundesliga

The race for the 2020/21 Bundesliga title has been a close one thus far as the contenders have proven to be up to the task of usurping the defending champions Bayern Munich if they let complacency creep into their season. The Bavarian giants are always favorites for the title and this has been the case in recent seasons. Although folks thought that their regular domestic rivals Borussia Dortmund would give them a good chase, this has not been the case. Instead, another club has crept in to ensure that Hansi Flick and his men have it tough this season and it's Julian Nagelsmann's Red Bull Leipzig. Who would have thought? Well, folks who'd be interested in betting on who wins the Bundesliga can do so at Happyluke with the most popular soccer betting types After 23 games in the Bunde...

Novice and shaky Lazio are no match for a faltering Bayern

Bayern Munich may be faltering in the Bundesliga or running some sort of charity of giving points away domestically but this won't be the case in the UEFA Champions League. The Bavarian giants made a statement on Tuesday night with the 4:1 thrashing of Lazio at Stadio Olimpico in the first leg of the round-of-16 tie between the two sides. It can be recalled that Bayern Munich have not won in their last two Bundesliga games and folks thought the Italians could give them a run for their money as they supposedly appeared out of sorts in recent games. However, Hansi Flick's men traveled to Italy with ruthlessness and desire to punish every error from their opponents and they started from the first 10 minutes as a Mateo Musacchio back pass gifted Robert Lewandowski the chance to open t...

Flick – Bayern must bounce back against Lazio

Ahead of the UEFA Champions League round-of-16 clash against Serie A outfit Lazio on Tuesday night, Bayern Munich coach Hansi Flick has insisted that there can be no excuses in the first leg despite his side's recent dip in form. "I want my team to be switched on from the start and I have total confidence they will do that at Lazio," Flick said during Monday's press conference ahead of the encounter. Bayern lost 2:1 to Eintracht Frankfurt in Bundesliga last Saturday and this was preceded by a shock 3 all draw against Arminia Bielefeld at the Allianz Arena. These results are coming after the club's triumph in the Club World Cup in Qatar some weeks back. The squad depth of the side has been tested since Thomas Muller and Benjamin Pavard tested positive for COVID-19 with Corentin Tol...

The Flick and Bayern combo is just too formidable

Bayern Munich have carved a niche for themselves as the best team in Europe and unarguably the team to beat as the 2020/21 football season progresses in Europe. The Bavarian giants have added the UEFA Supercup to their laurels and have started on a positive note after ending the 2019/20 season on a high. I guess very few saw the Bundesliga giants being this dominant in Europe after the sack of Niko Kovac and his replacement by Hansi Flick. Well, the German gaffer's adventure at the club since his appointment has been nothing short of fantastic. Bayern Munich will now turn their attention to the FIFA Club World Cup which is already as good as won by them in my opinion as they'll take the sides from other continents to the cleaners when the time is right.

Klopp argues how COVID-19 aided Bayern’s UCL triumph

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has argued that the COVID-19 pandemic contributed to Bayern Munich's triumph in the 2019/20 UEFA Champions League competition. The Bundesliga giants emerged victoriously over Ligue 1 giants Paris-Saint Germain in a very tight final encounter with Kingsley Coman scoring the only goal of the game and eventual winner with a header before the hour mark. The victory ensured that the Bavarian giants ended the season with a 21-match winning streak that began in mid-February. The coach of the side, Hansi Flick has been heaped with praises for his significant impact after coming in to replace Niko Kovac. However, in an interview with ZDF, Klopp who previously managed Bayern's rivals Borussia Dortmund congratulated the club but suggested that they got a little lu...

Who will win the Bundesliga vs Ligue 1 UCL semis battle?

The 2019/20 UEFA Champions League has seen a lot of giant-killing in the knockout phases, and I daresay that nobody would have predicted that the likes of Lyon and RB Leipzig would be in the semifinals of the competition. Nobody would have predicted that the last 4 of the competition would comprise only teams from the Bundesliga and Ligue 1. Imagine the likes of Juventus, Barcelona, Manchester City, and Atletico Madrid being eliminated from the competition. Let's not mention how Barcelona were mercilessly pummeled, bloodied, and bled 8:2. Even if someone saw a thrashing, nobody would have fathomed that high a scoreline. Funny enough, if more time had been added, more goals would have been added by Bayern who were very ruthless. READ: Tips on how to win more in football betting in ...

Coutinho would love to stay at Bayern Munich

Philippe Coutinho would love to remain a Bayern Munich player after his loan spell at the Allianz Arena comes to an end. The Brazilian has impressed thus far after struggling to fit in and meet expectations at Barcelona. Coutinho has scored 3 goals and assisted 5 for the Bavarians in the Bundesliga and UEFA Champions League this season despite the side's inconsistencies, which have already seen one manager lose his job. Meanwhile, Bayern Munich can sign the Brazilian permanently in a deal worth £102m next summer. 'I'm very comfortable,' said Coutinho.
