Bayern Munich – VfL Wolfsburg – One of two Derby eighth finals of the German Cup, although the situation in the championship table reveals that only Bayern has a generally good season and are expected to first place, while Wolfsburg very bad in the lower part of the table with just four points more of the relegation zone. Just ahead of the winter break is Wolfsburg played remotely solid, and won the first round and the continuation, which was followed by two defeats. Bayern has had many victories in all competitions, but last weekend and they blundered and only drew at home. In early December, these rivals played the first season’s championship showdown, also in Munich and then Bayern won with 5: 0th It is interesting that Wolfsburg has never managed to win in Munich Bayern, and have only one draw and 2001.
After a long time the team of Bayern Munich on Saturday again blundered. It is interesting that they are more of these unexpected results in the championship happened at home, where the truth is still not lost, but already three times and drew it with teams that are objectively at this time much weaker and even Schalke, who on Saturday out 1: 1. Before that they have succeeded Cologne and Hoffenheim and each time was 1: 1, in a very similar matches.
This time is definitely not expected that it will remain this result, after Bayern quickly took over Lewandowski, and then a few minutes later they conceded a goal to which we can say that the fault goalkeeper Neuer. By the end of the much time, but the Bavarians the second goal did not come despite the opportunities that are created. Coach Ancelotti made two changes to the side positions and the rest are Lahm and Alaba and Rafinha play and J.BERNAT, while the rest of the team was expected. Now we should go back and Lahm and Alaba, and as far as midfield Alcantara may be refreshed instead T.MULLER.
Probable lineups Bayern: Neuer – Lahm, J.Martinez, Hummels, Alaba – Xabi Alonso Vidal – Robben, Alcantara, D.COSTA – Lewandowski
Incredibly bad season for the “Wolves”, which does not seem to help either shifts coaches, not bringing in reinforcements, or the winter break which was expected to slightly stacked their ranks. They had a solid performance before the break and a little further away from the relegation zone, with the team that is not objectively should not be. And at the start of the second part of the beat, but struggled to match HSV, which is still remaining and with one less player on the field but in the finish Gomez scored for 1: 0th The wheel then another domestic tour and an early lead against Augsburg, also naked Gomez, but later decline and defeat of 2: 1.
On Saturday in Cologne were equal and had a draw to finish the match, caused the penalty from which they conceded a goal for a new defeat. They hoped that the Cup can bring salvation bad season, but there they were on his luck, because Bayern are out and have to play at home, where they never won. In the last line of Wolfsburg is now playing with three and only Bruma classic stopper, and there are more and left bočbi R.RODRIGUEZ and defensive midfielder Luiz Gustavo. Midfield line is therefore reinforced a little on the defensive, and the only outpost striker Gomez. From winter reinforcements are imposed only Malli, but is waiting for its real effect.
Probable lineups Wolfsburg: Benaglio – Luiz Gustavo, Bruma, R.RODRIGUEZ – Vierinha, Guilavogui, Seguin, Arnold – Malli – M.Gomez
Bayern does not shine at the start of the second part of the season, but what can we say about Wolfsburg who plays very badly and suffers at every game. In this case, even to him, cursed the ground in Munich, where we simply do not know how to draw a good result and they again anticipate certain defeat.
