Wolfsburg vs Bayern Munich: TV channel, live stream, squad news & preview – football news

Two sides going through a difficult period go head-to-head on Saturday as Wolfsburg take on a struggling Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga.

Die Wolfe have not won since the opening week of September, failing to take three points from any of their last five league games.

Bayern, meanwhile, are on a run of four matches without a win, although club chiefs held a press conference on Friday to come out in support of under-fire head coach Niko Kovac.

The champions are already four points behind leaders Borussia Dortmund and a third loss of the campaign would be a blow to their ambitions of winning a seventh league title in a row.

Match Preview


Yunus Malli Wolfsburg Hertha Berlin

It had appeared that Kovac would be dismissed even before Bayern’s trip to Wolfburg, but instead the club used a surprise press conference to attack the media for launching a negative campaign against their manager and players.

Prior to that media briefing, Kovac insisted that Bayern can turn their season around and that he was leaving no stone unturned in his attempts to improve their form.

Article continues below

“Life consists of failure and success,” he said. “I can assure you that we have trained well. Everyone wants to play and win. We had many opportunities as in the first seven games but we could not exploit them. The atmosphere is positive. We need to stay positive.

“You can not assume that you lose three important players in the first three games. But I’m still convinced of the size and quality of the squad.

“I’m working more for my team, so I have no time for shaving now.”

Dortmund’s Gotze needs right coach to return to his best, says former youth boss – football news

Mario Gotze’s former youth coach Peter Hyballa believes the Borussia Dortmund midfielder can return to his best as long as he plays under the right coach.

Gotze became a national hero when he scored the extra-time winner for Germany in the 2014 World Cup final against Argentina in Brazil, but his career has been in steady decline since.

The 26-year-old returned to Dortmund from Bayern Munich in 2016 but was diagnosed with a metabolic disorder the following year, severely limiting his first-team opportunities.

Gotze is now back to full fitness but has yet to start a Bundesliga game this season, though he did come off the bench to score in a 4-3 win over Augsburg before the international break. The midfielder also scored one and set up another on a 4-0 friendly win over fourth-tier Alemannia Aachen on Monday.

News of Gotze’s revival is of no surprise to Hyballa, who managed him while in charge of Dortmund’s Under-17 side. He is confident Gotze can return to his previous form but he needs the right coach to bring the best out of him.

“He can still play. But he obviously needs the right coach, “ Hyballa told GBP Sports and Spox. “I used to think that Mario plays in every team. But apparently he already needs a free-spirit coach and no structure coach.

“Mario is a free spirit himself and with such a player you have to talk a lot. And not all trainers understand that. Especially in Germany.”

Aside from the right coaching, Hyballa says Gotze may have struggled to live up to expectations after the highs of the World Cup and suggests a move away from Germany could prove beneficial if he continues to struggle for regular action at Dortmund.

“I do not want to give him any tips, that’s not for me. He just has to keep going and maybe relax a bit. There are other things in life than football.

“From my external perspective, I see only two possibilities: Either, he prevails at Borussia Dortmund or he goes abroad.

“But of course it’s also a matter of mind. Of course he’s been listening for years: you’re the best, you’re the best. And he said back then that he sees himself among the best clubs in the world.

“That’s why he’s always put the most pressure on himself. He is a perfectionist, but this claim also wears you down.”

Mario Gotze Borussia Dortmund 2018-19

Hyballa also admits he had no doubts Gotze would make it as a professional the moment he came to train with his Dortmund U-19 side.

The 42-year-old, who is current coach of Slovak club Dunajska Streda, also credits the sometimes harsh approach towards Gotze by his fellow youth coaches as Dortmund, which ultimately aided the youngster’s development.

“Our youth goalkeeping coach Matthias Kleinsteiber, who also led the BVB Youth Board, drew my attention to him. And then a small chubby guy came to us, but he did just about everything right. Actually, I’m always very emotional in training, but when I saw that, I was pretty quiet for a while.

Article continues below

“Then I called the then U-17 coach and said: He will not come back to you. We played a huge season back then and played for the championship and the cup in the finals. Mario was very fast an integral part of the team, has played on the 10 and on the wings.

“At that time one already saw what incredible qualities he possesses. He sees spaces, has an outstanding technique and incredible talent. For example, we did a triathlon in the training camp, so he swam it all the others. Since I thought: Is there anything he is not able to do? But you have to say one thing.

“His development does not come from God alone, but also the youth department of Borussia Dortmund. Because the trainers at BVB also had a very rude, direct nature, as it belongs somewhere in the Ruhr area. And this speech was just right for Mario. You do not always have to sensitively tackle a sensitive person, but sometimes tackle it counter productively to get the most out of it.”

FIFA 19 Ultimate Team: Reus named Bundesliga player of the month – football news

Borussia Dortmund attacker Marco Reus has been named as the first ever EA Sports Bundesliga Player of the Month.

The Germany international played four league games in September, scoring three goals and assisting three more as Dortmund took 10 points to begin their early title challenge.

Reus was crowned player of the month following a fan vote, which saw six stars battle it out to receive an upgraded card in FIFA 19.

New Borussia Monchengladbach striker Alassane Plea, Hertha Berlin’s Ondrej Duda, forwards Max Kruse and Timo Werner, as well as Gladbach winger Thorgan Hazard were all nominated for the inaugural award.

A new player will be chosen each month for the rest of the season, with their upgraded version available through Squad Building Challenges (SBCs) in FIFA 19.

Reus’s basic card in FIFA 19 is a left midfielder, but the new version is a central attacking midfielder, which can then be converted into any central position including striker or centre forward. It has been boosted from 85 to 88 overall, with +3 increases in pace and dribbling, +4 on shooting and passing, and +6 on defending and physical attributes.

The SBCs for Reus require four squads to be submitted, including an 86+ rated one, a Bundesliga one and a team requiring at least one Dortmund player. In total, three Team of the Week players must be used to complete the challenge.

Overall, the challenges are estimated to cost around 450k in-game coins on Playstation and Xbox, and over 500k on PC. If this is too pricy, there is also a much simpler challenge to get a loan version of the Reus card, which can be used for 20 matches before expiring.

Furious Bayern Munich back Kovac amid Wenger rumours: It’s outrageous! – football news

Bayern Munich officials have offered their support to under-fire coach Niko Kovac after press reports linking the club with former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger.

The German giants, on the back of six successive Bundesliga titles, find themselves stuck in an uncharacteristic slump .

A four-game winless run heading into the international break has Bayern sat sixth in the table, four points adrift of leaders Borussia Dortmund. 

Pressure has built on Kovac as a result, with calls for change on the field and in the dugout starting to mount in intensity. 

Bayern fuelled speculation regarding a possible managerial change just a few months after handing Kovac the reins after calling a press conference on Friday. 

President Uli Hoeness, chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge and sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic were all in attendance, with the announcement of Jupp Heynckes’ return as coach taking place the last time those three joined forces at a media call.

Rather than announce a change in the dugout, though, the trio came out in defence of Kovac and hit out at his treatment in the German media.

Hoeness said: “I was accused of not publicly defending Niko Kovac. For that I have to clarify something. Why? We appreciate his work. We do not have to publicly back ourselves. This is disrespectful and outrageous, what happens here. This club will now unite in public again.”

Salihamidzic added: “Niko knows we’re behind him, it’s outrageous what’s going on here.”

Rummenigge, meanwhile,  took aim at the press , insisting that some of the reporting had been “sly” and “degrading”. He said: “It is an important day for FC Bayern because we will not allow this degrading, sly factual reporting to continue. From today on we will protect our players, our coaches and also the club.”

Niko Kovac Bayern Munich

Those words will be music to Kovac’s ears, with the Croat having held his own pre-match press conference on Friday in which he talked up the positvity and passion within his Bayern squad.

He said: “The fact is, the results are not right.

“In the first games, the number of scoring chances was the same as in the last four. The problem is that they were not converted. 

“It was a good approach, but ball did not want to go in. We will not question everything and turn everything. We need that little bit of luck. 

“The mood is positive. We also want and have to be positive. The passion is there. 

“Life consists of failure and success. I can assure you that we have trained really well. Everyone desperately wants to play and win.” 

While Kovac is set to remain in his role for now, having penned a three-year contract upon his appointment,  Wenger is among those to have been mooted as a possible successor  if change is sought.

The experienced Frenchman has been out of work since bringing a 22-year reign at Arsenal to a close over the summer. 

Wenger has been quizzed on the Bayern rumours and stopped short of ruling himself out of a future role in Bavaria. 

Article continues below

He told Bild when discussing the current situation at Bayern: “It’s important that Hoeness and Rummenigge organise the transition. 

“I think the power should stay within ex players. People like Philipp Lahm and Oliver Kahn, it’s important that they take over. Football lives within you. You don’t learn that at university.”

Wenger was, however, reluctant to add himself into contention for a position at Bayern if one becomes available, adding: “That’s not a topic for me. Uli Hoeness and Karl-Heinz Rummenigge trusted Niko Kovac and they have to hold on to him.”

‘I like this torture!’ – Man Utd & Arsenal-linked Maier ‘living the dream’ at Hertha – football news

Arne Maier is “living the dream” at Hertha and has told GBP Sports that he enjoys the “torture” of trying to maintain the standards which have seen him linked with Arsenal and Manchester United.

At just 19 years of age, the highly-rated midfielder is being billed as one of the most exciting prospects in European football.

He is now an established star in Berlin and a regular for the Germany U21 side, having progressed through the youth levels with his country from the U15 set-up.

Big things are expected of Maier, but he claims to be relishing the challenge of proving himself at the very highest level.

“It is always a nice feeling to be praised,” Maier told GBP Sports .

“But no matter how much I may be praised at the moment, on the field that does not help me. There I am on my own and every time I have to go to my limits and not rest.

“But I want to emphasise that I like this torture. I’m living my dream.”

Maier’s efforts are already seeing him linked with leading sides from the Bundesliga, Premier League and beyond, but that is nothing new for a youngster who was targeted by Ajax, United and Bayern Munich shortly after his 13th birthday.

“Of course, on the one hand, it was a cool feeling that such big clubs were interested in me,” he added.

“On the other hand, I was only 13 years old, had my school in Berlin, my family and my friends, which is why I decided against a change at that time.”

It may be that Maier’s future lies outside of Hertha, with Arsenal and Juventus reported to have joined the hunt for his services, but for now he is fully focused on the present.

That includes trying to earn senior international recognition, with there a number of exciting youngsters knocking on the door of Joachim Low’s Germany squad.

Kai Havertz, Germany, Bayer Leverkusen

Asked to name those most likely to make the breakthrough, Maier said: “First of all Kai Havertz [of Bayer Leverkusen].

“I have known him for several years. He is a good friend of mine and I have followed his development closely.

“But there is not only Havertz, also players like Thilo Kehrer [at Paris Saint-Germain] have a lot of potential and can play an important role in the national team at some point.

“Of course, each of us wants to someday play for Die Mannschaft – me too. That’s the dream.”

If Maier is able to take that step up, then he will be following in the footsteps of a player he has looked to for inspiration throughout his career to date – PSG star Julian Draxler.

Article continues below

“When I was young I saw on TV how he scored for Schalke in the DFB Cup against Nuremberg and was immediately impressed,” said Maier.

“On the field he has superior quality. He is a great guy that I admire greatly. In my apartment there is one of his jerseys on the wall.”

Maier may soon get the opportunity to grace a jersey alongside Draxler, with it expected that an upward career curve will continue for a hot prospect determined to fulfil his potential.

‘Drop Neuer and start Ter Stegen’ – Germany legend Matthaus calls for goalkeeping change – football news

Marc-Andre ter Stegen should take the Germany number one spot away from an out-of-sorts Manuel Neuer, former captain Lothar Matthaus has said.

Bayern Munich goalkeeper Neuer has struggled to hit top form since returning to action following his long absence due to a foot injury last season.

The 32-year-old was unconvincing in Germany’s shock group-stage exit at the World Cup and came in for criticism for his performance in the 3-0 Nations League loss to Netherlands last Saturday.

Ter Stegen has only started two matches this year – friendlies with Spain in March and Peru last month – but Matthaus thinks the Barcelona man has earned the right to a regular spot in Joachim Low’s starting line-up.

“Manuel Neuer doesn’t currently have the form and assuredness he had before his serious injury,” the 1990 World Cup winner wrote in his column for Sky Sport.

Article continues below

“He’s not yet back in the shape that made him the best goalkeeper in the world four times [according to the International Federation of Football History & Statistics].

“[Ter Stegen] has been world-class at Barcelona for years. I think he’s gradually earned the chance to play an important match from the start, even if Neuer is available.”

Germany take on France in their latest Nations League match in Paris on Tuesday.

Bailey rejects chance to make Jamaica debut after row regarding brother – football news

Leon Bailey’s long-awaited debut for Jamaica has been put on hold after the winger refused to play on Sunday.

The 21-year-old had appeared to end speculation about his international future by accepting a call-up to Jamaica’s squad for their clash with Bonaire.

But Bailey pulled out of that game after the Jamaican Football Federation reportedly went back on an agreement to call up his younger brother, Kyle Butler, instead making him go through a trial first.

Butler, 20, plays for Austrian outfit FC Juniors OO and talked up his chances of a call-up to the national side at the end of last year.

Highly rated Leverkusen winger Bailey had been at the centre of a fight for his services at international level because of his eligibility to play for Jamaica, Germany, Belgium and England.

Jamaica thought they had come out on top in that battle when Bailey accepted a call-up to their latest squad this month, but in an unexpected turn of events, the winger says he will only play for the Reggae Boyz if his brother is given a chance.

“Obviously, I came to Jamaica because of the international call-up,” Bailey told the Jamaica Gleaner.

“I did agree to come based on the agreement we had. But when I got here, it was a totally different scenario. They didn’t keep their end [of the deal], therefore, I decided not to play this game.

“I am here for one reason: to represent the country. But they didn’t keep their end. Once they are willing to do that, I am ready to put on the national team jersey.

“By this November, if they are willing to go ahead with whatever we’ve asked of them, I’ll be ready to represent my country.”

The winger, who has been linked with a number of top clubs throughout Europe, believes he needs like-minded players alongside him if he is to perform at his top level for Jamaica.

Article continues below

“It [his brother’s situation] is a big part of it. I need players who can understand me. You can’t expect me to jump in a system and expect it to work.

“I need help. I am a winner, a phoenix, and I don’t like losing, so I need people who I know are capable of making things happen.”

If the situation is resolved, Bailey could make his Reggae Boyz debut against Suriname on November 17.

Goal difference or head to head? How every major football competition ranks teams level on points – football news

Goal difference, goals scored, head-to-head – how do leagues determine ranking when clubs are level on goal difference?

Manchester City won the title in remarkable style in 2012, clinching it right from under the noses of their greatest rivals Manchester United after the two were level on points, though Roberto Mancini’s side were crucially victorious through their superior goal difference.

The amount of yellow cards you pick up in a season could also potentially determine your finish in the league, as well as a slew of other quirky tie-breakers and rules.

So how do the likes of the Premier League, La Liga, Ligue 1, Serie A and other top competitions determine their table rankings? GBP Sports takes a look.


What is goal difference vs. head-to-head?


Goal difference is a tie-breaker used to rank teams who finish on equal points in a league tournament. 

Goal difference is counted as the number of goals scored by a team in all league matches across the season, minus the number of goals conceded – for instance, if a team were to score four goals but concede two across two matches, their goal difference would be +2. A negative goal difference occurs when a team concedes more goals than they have scored, like if they conceded three but managed to score one goal (giving them a goal difference of -2).

The usage of goal difference as a tie-breaker was first introduced at the 1970 World Cup, and then used by the English Football League in 1975. Since then, the majority of European football leagues as well as tournaments around the world use goal difference to determine ranking – though other competitions may favour the “head-to-head” record or other variations as a priority tie-breaker.

Goal difference has replaced the “goal average” tie-breaker in order to encourage attacking play, as goal average means the number of goals scored divided by the number of goals conceded – which often enabled some teams to sit back and defend in order to edge out low-scoring games.

Another issue with goal average was that if a team were to concede no goals, the value cannot be determined, as division by zero is undefined.

Using head-to-head as a tie-breaker determines the form of the two level clubs when they have faced each other. If Chelsea and Liverpool were level on points but Chelsea managed to beat Liverpool home and away in the league, the London side would be deemed victorious.


How does the Premier League rank teams level on points?


Eden Hazard

In the English top-flight, if any clubs finish the season with the same number of points, their position is first determined by:

  1. Goal difference
  2. Higher number of goals scored
  3. Playoff at neutral venue if relevant for deciding champion, relegation or participating in a European league, otherwise by draw.

How does the Champions League rank teams level on points?


In the Champions League group stages, teams are organised into groups of four and then ranked according to points. The teams to finish in the top two of their group will progress to the knockout stages, while the latter two will either be eliminated or dropped into the Europa League.

  1. Head-to-head points between tied teams
  2. Head-to-head goal difference between tied teams
  3. Goals scored in head-to-head matches among tied teams
  4. Away goals scored in head-to-head matches among tied teams
  5. If more than two teams are tied, and after applying all head-to-head criteria above, a subset of teams are still tied, all head-to-head criteria above are reapplied exclusively to this subset of teams
  6. Goal difference in all group matches
  7. Goals scored in all group matches
  8. Away goals scored in all group matches
  9. Wins in all group matches
  10. Away wins in all group matches
  11. Disciplinary points (red card = 3 points, yellow card = 1 point, expulsion for two yellow cards in one match = 3 points)
  12. UEFA club coefficient

How does La Liga rank teams level on points?


Lionel Messi Barcelona Valencia 071018

La Liga decides their tie-breakers between two level clubs first through goal difference, like in the Premier League.

But, if points are equal between two or more clubs, then the tie is broken through:

  1. Head-to-head points between tied teams
  2. Head-to-head goal difference between tied teams
  3. Goal difference

If the tie is still not broken, then the winner will be determined by Fair Play scales:

  1. Receiving a yellow card: -1 point
  2. Doubled yellow card/ejection -2 points
  3. Direct red card -3 points
  4. Suspension of coach or other club personnel -5 points
  5. Misconduct of supporters -5-7 points
  6. Stadium closure -10 points

Then, if the clubs are still level, the ranking will be resolved with a tie-break match in a neutral stadium.


How does the Bundesliga rank teams level on points? 


In the Bundesliga, they also use goal difference as the priority tie-breaker. Their rules for determining the end-of-season ranking are as follows:

  1. Goal difference
  2. Goals scored for the entire season
  3. Head-to-head results (total points accumulated)
  4. Head-to-head goals scored
  5. Head-to-head away goals scored
  6. Total away goals scored for the entire season
  7. Playoff at neutral venue if relevant for deciding champion, relegation or participating in a European league, otherwise by draw.

How does Ligue 1 rank teams level on points? 


Kylian Mbappe PSG Lyon Ligue 1 07102018

In Ligue 1, the following tie-breakers are observed:

  1. Goal difference
  2. Higher number of goals scored
  3. Playoff at neutral venue if relevant for deciding champion, relegation or participating in a European league, otherwise by draw.

How does Serie A rank teams level on points? 


The deciding tie-breakers in Serie A are as follows:

  1. Head-to-head points
  2. Head-to-head goal difference
  3. Goal difference
  4. Higher number of goals scored
  5. Playoff at neutral venue if relevant for deciding champion, relegation or participating in a European league, otherwise by draw.

Until the 2004-05 season, a playoff fixture at the end of the season would be used to determine the champions, European spots or relegation, if the two teams were tied on points.

The last championship playoff occurred in the 1963-64 season when Bologna and Inter both finished on 54 points and Bologna won the playoff 2-0.


How does the Eredivisie rank teams level on points? 


The deciding tie-breakers in Eredivisie are as follows:

  1. Goal difference 
  2. Higher number of goals scored
  3. Head-to-head points
  4. Head-to-head goal difference
  5. Head-to-head away goals scored
  6. Playoff if relevant for deciding champion, relegation or participating in a European league, otherwise by draw.
  7. Penalty shoot-out (only after a playoff)

How does goal difference and head-to-head work in international competitions? 


Japan Senegal World Cup 2018

In the group stage of the World Cup, which is the first round of the final tournament before the last-16 stage, the following tie-breakers are observed to determine the ranking of teams who are level on points:

  1. Points obtained in all group matches
  2. Goal difference in all group matches
  3. Number of goals scored in all group matches
  4. Points obtained in the matches played between the teams in question
  5. Goal difference in the matches played between the teams in question
  6. Number of goals scored in the matches played between the teams in question
  7. Fair play points in all group matches (only one deduction could be applied to a player in a single match)

The fair play point deductions are as follows:

  1. Yellow card: -1 point
  2. Indirect red card (second yellow card): -3 points
  3. Direct red card: -4 points
  4. Yellow card and direct red card: -5 points

The fair play point deductions were observed to determine the winners of Group H in the 2018 World Cup, where Senegal and Japan were level on points, form, goal difference, number of goals scored and number of goals conceded.

Japan eventually progressed to the next round based on fair play after it was ruled that they received two fewer yellow cards than Senegal, earning a deduction of -4 points compared to Senegal’s of -6 points.


What league titles have been decided by goal difference and head-to-head? 


Vincent Kompany Roberto Mancini 2012

The most recent, and one of the most iconic and classic, cases of a league title won based on goal difference came during the race between city rivals Manchester City and Manchester United in the 2011-12 season.

Much of the league season was a two-horse race contested by the two Manchester clubs, with the two finishing 19 points ahead of third-placed Arsenal. City and United headed into their final game of the season level on points, but City were ranked first due to their goal difference superiority of eight goals. In order to win the league, they had to make sure that they bettered United’s result – who faced Sunderland away.

City clinched the title in remarkable, unscripted fashion, scoring two goals in injury time to stage a dramatic 3-2 comeback. United scored early on to win 1-0 and had thought that they won the league after the 90th minute in the City game, where they were still 2-1 down – but an equalizer from Edin Dzeko and Sergio Aguero’s later winner secured the Sky Blues the Premier League title ahead of their fiercest rivals based on goal difference.

Another league title was won in classic dramatic fashion when Arsenal beat Liverpool in the 1988-89 season. The Gunners defeated Liverpool 2-0 away at Anfield to win the championship on the last day of the season after the two finished level on points and goal difference.

PSV, Ajax and AZ headed into the final day of the 2006-07 Eredivisie season all level on points. 

PSV eventually won the title during a breathless 90 minutes for all sides after winning 5-1 against Vitesse Arnhem which secured them a goal difference of +50 to Ajax’s +49, while AZ lost to Excelsior.

Bayer Leverkusen’s Bailey ends England speculation by accepting Jamaica call-up – football news

Bayer Leverkusen forward Leon Bailey has ended speculation about his international future by accepting a call-up to the Jamaica squad.

There had been suggestions that the 20-year-old was holding out for a call-up by England, but Bailey has pledged his allegiance to Jamaica and looks set to feature in their clash with Bonaire.

Earlier this year, Bailey’s adopted father Craig Butler had fuelled rumours that he would opt for either Germany or England , telling GBP Sports : “Leon and his brother have received invitations to join Jamaica’s national team. I love my country and so do my boys. Unfortunately, my sons both declined the offer at this time.

“Leon and Kyle have British ancestry, Portuguese ancestry, have lived in Belgium and, in a few years, were Leon to stay in Germany, he too would qualify for Germany.

“Each day that goes by it’s another day he could qualify for another country if he chooses. It shows him as a man of substance and a leader; not a fool that runs and bows at the hands of people who have been corrupted by the economic restraints they face.”

Article continues below

However, it has since come to light that the Kingston-born Bailey was never eligible for the Three Lions, as he does not have a biological parent or grandparent who was born in England.

Bailey joined Bundesliga side Leverkusen from Genk in January 2017 and has scored 13 goals in 53 appearances for the club. He signed a new deal in August that will keep him at the BayArena until 2023.

Kovac unsure on Bayern Munich future as he admits time is short – football news

Niko Kovac admits he is unlikely to be given long to turn around Bayern Munich’s fortunes following their shock defeat to Borussia Monchengladbach.

The Bundesliga champions were beaten 3-0 at the Allianz Arena on Saturday, a result that leaves them in fifth place after seven matches, four points adrift of leaders Borussia Dortmund.

Bayern won their first seven games of the season in all competitions but are now four games without a win, a run in which they have scored only two goals.

Carlo Ancelotti was sacked on September 28 last year after going just two matches without a victory, and Kovac, who took over as head coach in July, concedes he is facing a race against time to correct their form.

“I can’t answer the question,” he told a news conference when asked about his future.

“I know the way things work in football and the Bundesliga. I do think we put together great performances in seven games, and now we’re not doing that.

“I know that I am at Bayern Munich and the time you get is different to other places. We already showed what we’re capable of and I am convinced we will show it again soon. I’ll do my part to make it happen.”

Bayern travel to Wolfsburg on October 20 in their first match after the international break.
