Bayern Munich travel to Doosan Arena in Czech Republic to take on Viktoria Plzen in a bid to secure three more points and, potentially, the top spot in Group C of the UEFA Champions League. Julian Nagelsmann has faced a lot of criticism from the press due to Bayern’s uncharacteristically mediocre start to the Bundesliga, where they have accumulated just 16 points from 9 games, sitting four points off the top in third place. However, they have maintained a perfect record in the Champions League, winning their first three games in the group and defeating Barcelona and Inter.
A win tonight will take their points tally to 12, which guarantees a passage to the Round of 16.
Bayern will be hosting 2nd-placed Freiburg on Sunday, 16th October, in a crucial game. A win would be huge boost for the Bavarians in a bid to recapture the top position in the table.
They will then take on Augsburg in the second round of the DFB-Pokal (German Cup) on Wednesday, 19th October, before travelling to Hoffenheim for some more Bundesliga action on 22nd October.
