Analysis and forecast for the matchday 4 of the Bundesliga “Bayern” – “Bayer” (09/15/2023)
The matchday 4 of the Bundesliga Bayern – Bayer will take place on September 15 in Munich. Starts at 21:30 Moscow time. Xabi Alonso has challenged Thomas Tuchel’s team for the Championship and is ready to demonstrate the superiority of his tactical scheme in direct confrontation. Can the Spanish specialist become the author of a sensation?
The incredible Mineev returns:
Vladimir Mineev – Rafael Carvalho. The Russian paratrooper can do anything.
The Reds scored nine points in three rounds, but left a mixed impression of their game. For example, in the last match against Borussia Mönchengladbach, Tuchel’s team had to defend after a goal from opposing defender Kou Itakura.
The Japanese scored in the 30th minute, but the Munich team could only react after the break. Joshua Kimmich’s excellent play in midfield was the key to Bayern’s 2-1 victory: the player provided two assists.
Tuchel took a long time to decide who would cement Bayern’s support zone. The coach did not initially consider the combination of Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzky. It is very likely that he did not want to use the tactical formation of his predecessor, because it was Nagelsmann who appreciated the potential of this combination.
Furthermore, the personal relationship between Tuchel and Goretzki left a lot to be desired. But the situation improved: it is likely that the misunderstandings between them have been resolved, since in the last two games Kimmich and Goretzka were in the starting eleven.
Benzema’s team goes out to defend the title:
“Al-Ohdud” – “Al-Ittihad”. Karim Benzema was missed
The absence of goalkeeper Neuer certainly affects the actions of the defense, which already lacks mutual understanding. Sven Ulreich played in goal in all three games, but does not look like a worthy replacement for Manuel.
In many ways, striker Harry Kane saves Tuchel from trouble. If it weren’t for his three goals scored and one assist, things would have gone much worse for the Munich team. In addition to useful actions in attack, English is extremely useful when it comes to following the game and putting pressure on opposing defenders. So far, he is living up to his high transfer price.
Bayer striker Victor Boniface also quickly adapted to the Bundesliga. Let us remember that he came out of the Belgian championship, in which he demonstrated high quality football. But no one expected such a fantastic start from the Nigerian: four goals scored and two assists in three rounds!
Boniface fit perfectly into Xabi Alonso’s tactical scheme, allowing the Leverkusen coach to shift his attention towards an attacking style. Even last season Bayer often played defensively, but now he has already scored 11 goals, almost four on average per game.
Xabi Alonso, along with striker Boniface, were given additional options when building the attack. For example, a quick exit from the defense with a long pass. Victor is not afraid to dribble past two opponents and force them to commit a foul. And standards are now a strong asset in Xabi Alonso’s deck.
The Chinese rose high:
“Torpedo” – “Kunlun”. Igor Larionov will land the Chinese.
Bayern’s defense does not look like an impregnable fortress and the presence of Sven Ulreich in goal makes the Munich defenders nervous. Perhaps Bayer has the strongest attacking line and will create a lot of problems for Thomas Tuchel. We recommend considering a bet that Bayer will not lose, but we will hedge our bets with a handicap (+1) with an odds of 1.99.
Prediction and bets for the Bundesliga match Bayern – Bayer on September 15, 2023
The rivals won three games at the beginning of the championship, but the Munich team often makes mistakes in defense. Bayer coach Xabi Alonso prepared a team without weaknesses for the season, having received an important reinforcement in the summer. Furthermore, after national team matches, the best clubs often have interaction problems. So we will bet on Bayer to win with a handicap (+1).
Tender: Victory for Bayer with a handicap (+1) of 1.99.
