Anderlecht – Bayern Munich
Anderlecht hosts Bayern Munich in a match from Group B of the UEFA Champions League.
Anderlecht are the obvious underdog in this group. The Belgian champion didn’t win a single point in its matches so far, suffering four defeats so far. The most terrible thing is that Anderlecht didn’t score a single goal in the competition so far. Their goal difference from the first four rounds is 0:15, which is really a terrible achievement.
Now they will have another tough test against Bayern Munich.
Bayern are currently second in the group with 9 points won, trailing on 3 points behind the leader PSG. Bayern still have some chances for the first place in the group, but for that they are going to need some help from Celtic, too. They also have a direct clash against PSG in the last round of the group stage.
Bayern Munich are improving constantly since Carlo Ancelotti was sacked and replaced by the club legend Jupp Heynckes. Heynckes is doing a great job so far, using his rich experience for stabilizing the club. Since his appointment at the Allianz Arena, Bayern is winning all of the time – not just in Germany, but in Europe as well. Despite some problems they had in the beginning of the season, the Bavarians remain a huge favourite for winning the trophy. Especially with the last manager who led them to the cup in 2013.
It’s hard to think that Anderlecht can match with Bayern’s power. After all, we are talking about a club who can’t even a score a goal in the competition this season. We expect to see Bayern back at their best, because the process there is good at the moment. As for Anderlecht, they still have two chances left to play for their name and reputation.
