+++ UPDATE +++
Update from December 16, 6.45 p.m.: A bit of statistics: so far it was VfL Wolfsburg 23 times at FC Bayern to guest. The wolves couldn’t win any of the games – record. No other Bundesliga team went away empty-handed for the same team so often. In addition, FC Bayern 2020 has not yet suffered a defeat at home.
Tonight will tell whether these trends will continue. At least a victory for Lower Saxony is not entirely utopian in view of Bavaria’s mini-crisis.
FC Bayern – VfL Wolfsburg in the live ticker: Alaba vortex before the game
Update from December 16, 4:55 p.m .: There is still speculation about the future of David Alaba at the FC Bayern. Before the game against Wolfsburg, numbers have now been made public *. They show the alleged salary development of the Austrian since 2008.
At Alaba, the signs are still more of a farewell. In the medium term, Bayern will have to look for a replacement. Hasan Salihamidzic and Oliver Kahn already have a plan for the winter *. First of all, the year should end in a forgiving manner in terms of sport. Against Wolfsburg and Leverkusen, Munich want to get two wins. We’ll find out tonight whether that will succeed.
FC Bayern – VfL Wolfsburg in the live ticker: Flick has to tinker with emergency midfield
Update from December 16, 12:15 p.m .: Bayern will play their penultimate game of 2020 tonight. What’s in it against Wolfsburg? We are already excited. Marco Fritz will lead the game – it starts at 8.30 p.m.
First report from December 15, 5.13 p.m.: Munich – “It’s like a tear-off calendar,” said Hansi Flick two weeks ago. And that is exactly what describes the current mood at FC Bayern* probably best. Two more games, then a short vacation beckons. The problem: there are no opponents waiting to be beaten quickly in passing. With the VfL Wolfsburg* and Bayer Leverkusen* the triple winner still has two difficult tasks ahead of him.
FC Bayern – VfL Wolfsburg in the live ticker: Goretzka is out – Kimmich is not yet an option
One of the reasons why the people of Munich are currently struggling is the misery of injuries. And she doesn’t want to end: Against Wolfsburg will Leon Goretzka missing due to a muscle injury. He had in the absence of his partner Joshua Kimmich the midfield held together to some extent. Now Flick has to improvise even more. Newcomer Marc Roca is probably the hottest contender for a starting eleven – there aren’t that many options anymore.
On the other hand, the astonishingly quick recovery of Kimmich *, who has already fully participated in team training again, is encouraging. For the game on Wednesday he is not yet there, like Flick on the Press conference* clarified. Apart from the midfield, it looks good in terms of personnel.
FC Bayern – VfL Wolfsburg in the live ticker: Lewandowski meets his favorite opponent
Duels against VfL Wolfsburg are special for a Bayern player: Robert Lewandowski* has not scored against any Bundesliga club more often than against the Wolves. Most Bundesliga fans will remember his five goals in nine minutes in 2015. It is the last chance for Poles to vote for the final World footballer to recommend. He could become the first player in his country to win the award on Thursday.
FC Bayern – VfL Wolfsburg in the live ticker: who will stop Weghorst?
In contrast to Bayern, VfL Wolfsburg is still unbeaten. The Lower Saxony also have a dangerous striker: Wout Weghorst is something like the life insurance of the eleven of coaches Oliver Glasner. “He’s one of the best strikers in the league,” warns Flick of the massive Dutchman. Either should Jerome Boateng or Niklas Süle get a grip. Both have the physical requirements for this.
Are the troubled Bavarians losing feathers again in the end of the year? In any case, the personnel situation should improve again in January – including an almost new addition *. (epp) * tz.de is part of the Ippen editorial network.
