Bayern Munich won the Champions League last year in such impressive fashion and from the start of the competition looked like the only side that were going to win the Champions League last year. Over the summer, they have been able to keep hold of their squad and even add some quality additions to their team, and so, can they go and win the Champions League again this year; below we investigate.
Bayern certainly did set the benchmark last year and we clear deserved winners of the Champions League, especially after their decimation of Barcelona in the semi-finals where they won 8-2. Bayern have qualified for the next round of the group stages with 16 points where they have come top of the group unbeaten for the second season in a row. In fact, they’ve only conceded 5 goals in 6 games and with this record it puts them in good stead to reclaim the coveted trophy.

On this current hot streak that they are on, they could easily retain the trophy and the bookies are currently making them favourites priced at 11/4. Although the Balon D’Or was called off this season, we wouldn’t have been surprised if someone outside Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi won the golden ball for the first time in 11 years with the way that Robert Lewandowski played last year; he played a total of 47 games, scored 55 goals and made 10 assists and is one of the main reason as to why Bayern won the Champions Leagues.
And finally, the only weakness that we could put our finger on in terms of the starting line up would be that they needed another out-and-out striker to accompany Serge Gnabry on the right wing and having bought Leroy Sane this year from Manchester City, ensuring that he can return to his home league to one of the greatest sides in the world, this has just added another dimension of pace and power on the right wing. Defences were already terrified, wait until they see how Sane fits in.
