Bayern Munich to retain title hopes

Bayern Munich to retain title hopes

Bayern Munich go against FC Koln aiming for wins, as a win in this match would keep their hopes for the title alive. A three points in this match would help Bayern to keep their slim hopes for the title, as they are two points behind from the top. However, due to this, Bayern is on the verge of ending their 10-year dominance in the league. Koln on the other hand has been inconsistent this season, which is why their place in the standings is a little surprise. They are at the 10th with 42 points, a record they want to improve through this match. This meeting will be on May 27, 2023, at 9:30 PM (GMT+8), with Koln playing as hosts.

From the last 37 meetings that these two teams played, it was the visitors who holds an impressive record. They have won 23 games, which is actually not surprising, considering their dominance in the past, winning the last 10 titles of the league. The hosts on the other hand only had four wins, while the remaining 10 matches ended in spoils. Moreover, the visitors won their last eight meetings against the hosts, scoring 23 goals. As for the hosts, they are not doing well at home, going winless in six of their last seven matches at home. With that, they are aiming to finally turn the tables around and produce a miracle in this match.

Bayern is currently on the run of extending their decade-long dominance in the league, by winning yet another title this season. Unfortunately, due to their recent slump, they are now in danger of not getting the title this season. Bayern is currently at the second of the league table with 68 points, and is desperate for win here. A win in this match would keep their hopes for the title alive, which they are aiming for. However, coming into this match, Bayern suffered a huge defeat against RB Leipzig, in a 3-1 loss on their last match. They will now head into this match needing all the three points they could get, to have a point edge against the team at the top. Bayern is set to rely on their experience for this important and crucial match.

Due to their injuries, Manuel Neuer, Alphonso Davies, and Lucas Hernandez are all ruled out for this match. Meanwhile, Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting is a doubt in this game, following his knee injury.

Koln on the other hand sits at the 10th of the league table with 42 points. A win in this match could retain their spot in the league table, since they are just three points behind from the team at the ninth. It is just unfortunate that they were not able to win their previous match on the road. That could have been their fourth consecutive win on the road. They were held in a 1-1 draw against Werder Bremen, but were able to bounce back in a 5-2 win against Hertha Berlin. That win ended Koln’s six straight home games without a single win. Coming into this match, Koln looks like a different team, as they are now a rejuvenated team, earning seven points from their last three matches.

Tigges, who is required to undergo a shoulder surgery because of his injury, is ruled out in this game. Florian Dietz, and Mark Uth on the other hand are also watchin on the sides due to their injuries.
