After the surprising bankruptcy of FC Bayern, plagued by corona cases, against Borussia Mönchengladbach on the last match day of the Bundesliga, Munich’s lead over BVB has melted to six points. The German record champions want to get back on the road to success against 1. FC Köln (Saturday, 3:30 p.m.). Before the game, coach Julian Nagelsmann will answer questions.
sport.de accompanies FC Bayern’s PK on January 14 from 12 noon on the LIVE blog.
+++ What is 1. FC Köln doing? +++
After three league wins in a row, 1. FC Köln is currently in a strong sixth place. It should be clear anyway that you will not be able to stand up against the all-powerful FC Bayern. Coach Steffen Baumgart is known for always playing full-throttle football, even against the really big opponents.
Although this has never led to success in three games as coach of SC Paderborn and one as Effzeh trainer, most recently Baumgart’s teams only lost 2:3.
+++ Who is in Bayern’s goal? +++
As against Gladbach, FC Bayern could also have to do without regular keeper Manuel Neuer against Cologne. The national player is training again after being infected with the corona virus, but it is not yet certain whether it will be enough. Nagelsmann should bring light into the darkness.
