Belin Record national player Lothar Matthäus fears that Bayern will go it alone again in the Bundesliga title fight.
“If Dortmund meet FCB in a few weeks, the gap will most likely not have narrowed. Looking at the program of the two teams up to the top game, it is more likely that the record champions’ lead could even grow, ”wrote the 150-time national player in his column for the pay-TV broadcaster Sky after the previous game day Bayern’s lead over Borussia Dortmund had grown to four points.
There is simply not enough what BVB is offering, said the 60-year-old with a view to Dortmund’s 2-1 defeat in Leipzig and concludes: “If they don’t get the corner and win the next three games, it will be very difficult with an exciting title fight. And that at the beginning of December. “
The failure of some regular players should not be an excuse. “The team that played in Leipzig on Saturday was a top team. At least on paper. There were almost only national players. Of course they miss the super striker Haaland, and you can’t replace him, ”wrote Matthäus. But a squad cannot be geared towards “that the team only works when this one player is on the field and hardly anything works if he is absent for a few weeks”.
