The recent performance of Bayern Munich
Between their first participation in the group stage of the Champions League and the opening of the last 16, Bayern Munich underwent a transformation. The team underwent an exchange of command. Italian coach Carlo Ancelotti, who was unhappy with a few training sessions, was replaced by Jupp Heinckes. This has brought about a great change not only in tactics but in behavior.
The first results began to be seen even in the first stage of the competition. After Bayern was beaten by PSG 3-0, in the final round gave the change by scoring 3-1 in the Paris team, under the direction of Heinckes. With that, he reached 15 points (five wins and one defeat). The same score of Paris Saint-Germain, who ended up with first place for taking advantage of the tiebreaker criteria.
However, the consolidation of the strategies of the new coach happened even after the winter stoppage of the German Championship. He took advantage of the period to make up for missing out on the preseason. The greatest tactical maturity extended the Bavarian series of consecutive victories to 15, with 13 of them in official matches and two in friendly matches.
The most recent was achieved on Saturday, February 17, when, as a visitor, Bayern defeated Wolfsburg 2-1 in the German Championship. He reached 59 points (19 wins, two draws and two losses). He is fired in the lead of the Bundesliga and will hardly fail to escape a chance to reach the sixth consecutive national title.
