For the last decade FC Bayern Munichen has been the team to beat in German soccer.They have almost been virtually unchallenged for the best team for the last six years, Borussia Dortmund had been Bayern’s main foe but new teams have over shadowed Dortmund. This year Bayern do not look like the same dominate Bayern we are use too. They look like a wounded beast still fighting but heavily wounded. The problems seemed to all start with an injury to one of Bayern’s important midfielders Corentin Tolisso. Coming off a successful World Cup with France, Tolisso looked to have his break out season with Bayern that would quickly change when he tore his ACL. Bayern would then draw points with Ajax in the champions league, Ajax had just made it back to the champions league after years in the lower Europa league. The next game they would lose to Hertha Berlin by a score of 2-0. Bayern came into to the next game originally strong against Borussia Monchengladbach. things seemed to have gone better for the reigning Bundesliga champions until Plea scored a massive wake up call goal on Bayern. After Bayern conceded the first goal they would let it 2 more and lose 3-0. They went on to finally get a win against Wolfsburg but they struggled in the second half. Bayern could clearly use a good spell or they will relinquish the Bundesliga crown, that  would mean no beer celebration in Munich.
