FC Bayern Munich – Lothar Matthäus believes in FCB's treble

Record national player Lothar Matthäus considers the replacement of champions Bayern Munich from the top of the Bundesliga by Borussia Dortmund to be largely just a snapshot. From the point of view of the German world champion captain of 1990, Munich can continue to have legitimate hopes of triumphs in the championship, cup and Champions League, despite unusual weaknesses.

“Something doesn’t go so well together on Säbener Straße. Bayern are constantly inconsistent in the league this year. Nevertheless, I say: Bayern Munich can still get the triple and I even trust them,” wrote Matthäus in his Sky -Column “That’s how I see it”.

In the national title race, Matthäus values ​​the winning mentality of the Munich side more than the momentum of the Dortmund success streak. Munich’s 1: 2 at Bayer Leverkusen last Sunday and Dortmund’s leap to the top of the table before the league summit on the Isar on April 1 (Saturday / 6.30 p.m. / Sky) after the international break meant that a constellation was like “not for a long time more” occurred, but “in the past it was usually the case that Dortmund had shaky knees and Bayern were at their best at that point. Bayern are my favorites and I think they’ll win. If that happens, they’ll get that too Title”.

Before the big games in the Champions League quarterfinals against English champions Manchester City with Munich’s ex-coach Pep Guardiola on the bench, the former Bayern captain sees his successors, who also receive SC Freiburg in the DFB Cup semifinals, as equals with all remaining competitors.

“The performance in the Champions League is flawless and impressive,” said the 150-time national player, praising the German industry leader’s previous appearances on the international stage and deriving his confidence from this: “They can definitely get through against City. Real, Chelsea, Beat Napoli or whoever. It’s possible.”

According to Matthäus, Munich’s rival Dortmund has a chance of winning the title primarily in the event of success in the “German” Clasico: “If Dortmund pulls four points away with a win, they will become champions.”
