Bayern Munich prepare to host Dutch giants Ajax at the Allianz Arena amid a minor crisis in the national championship that saw them dropping five points in the last two matches.
The Bundesliga holders have been impressive since the start of the season, achieving four consecutive league triumphs, as well as, a comfortable 2-0 win over Benfica in the Champions League opener. However, in the last seven days, the Bavarians have played out a 1-1 draw with Augsburg at home before suffering a surprising 2-0 defeat to Hertha Berlin on the road, which is why they now trail Borussia Dortmund by a point. Therefore, Niko Kovac is desperate to see his players reacting to a tumultuous period, urging his side to “refocus” and snatch all three points in the top European competition.
Meanwhile, the Lancers have started their Champions League journey with a stunning 3-0 win over AEK Athens at home, as they plan to advance to the knockout stage at all costs. Still,in the Eredivisie, De Godenzonen currently occupy the second spot with a 5-point deficit to PSV Eindhoven who demolished Erik ten Hag’s side by three goals to nil ten days ago. However, the Amsterdam-based side managed to re-consolidate following a bad beat, securing two easy triumphs, over the lower-league outfit HVV Te Werve in the cup game and Fortuna Sittard in the league.
Rafinha, Leon Goretzka, Corentin Tolisso, and Kingsley Coman were the players who missed the encounter with Hertha last weekend, and they will probably skip midweek’s showdown, according to the latest reports. As for the visitors, Hassane Bande, Zakaria El Azzouzi, Azor Matusiwa, Daley Sinkgraven, Joel Veltman, and Frenkie de Jong should all remain in the Netherlands after picking up different injuries.
