Prateek Dasgupta commented on Why Thomas Mueller Will Be Key to Bayern Munich's Chances Against Dortmund:
Can't say I disagree except I am not sure about Gundogan's role. If Gotze is not fit Sahin will be deployed as the deep lying playmaker...
Prateek has yet to fill out a bio.
That's why I put the winky face lol. sorry about the sarcasm not being shown :/ I know BVB is in bad shape right now.
Ah, BVB's classical mind games. It's okay, I;m sure Hoffenheim gave them a good mental boost ;)
I'm pretty sure it was a poor clearance from Santana that dropped it in front of Robben. Not too much of a massive mistake though if we consider exactly how word class that goal was that Robben scored. I agree 100% though, if Klopp starts Goetze and Hummels when they are not fully match ready, they can be massive liabilities. I've had hamstring AND ankle injuries, they are nothing to mess around with. My GUESS is he'll go with Boateng for speed, but like you said it Van Buyten really stepped up against other fast teams, so he might be the better option. Ribery was just FANTASTIC. If he can play like that again, Bayern can't lose.
I have a postive fwwling this time too and hope we win it.
I think it will be a tough game very physical from both sides . 6 more days to go cant wait
And yes, I'm SUPER bummed about Badstuber. :-( Let's just hope he gets better soon and that his injury isn't chronic.
I thought he was just doubtful? But Hummels has been doubtful for every Bayern game for the last three years. I wouldn't be surprised at all to see him in the line-up. Even though Santana is underrated, I would rather Santana play than Hummels. Hummels hates Bayern and always brings his A-Game against them. Santana gifted Robben that beautiful goal in the Pokal.
I know, CRAZY game! I hate conceding three goals obviously, but it's a major testament to this Bayern's character that they came back and won the game. LOL Dortmund. I'm feeling a lot better about next week than I was before!
Actually no. :-/ This was the first Atleti match I've missed in a LONG time. Had to for personal reasons, though.
Still, I got to watch it with four generations of Atleti fans in a huge group of passionate people so the atmosphere was kind of similar to the Calderon in the end. Haha
Let's see if it works this time....
Hola, amigo! Thanks so much!!! I really appreciate the thought!
Ha I don't think I want to see Bayern next season honestly lol. Let us get back into the UCL with an opponent that isn't quite so good first. haha
