FC Bayern Munich moves to Top of the Table!!

      On 27 Aug, FC Bayern Munich (FCB) played at Kaiserlautern with the chance to move to the Top of the Table of the Bundesliga with a victory. FCB striker Mario Gomez not suppose to play in the match due to an injury. Yet, shortly before the match started Gomez told the coach that he was fit to play. And Gomez came out to play in this match! FCB won the match 3-0, with all three goals scored by Gomez. Gomez was the first FCB player to score a hat-trick this year. With the win on Saturday,FCB league point total became 9 with a goal differential of 8 goals. FCB's recond went to 5-0-0 in their last five matches (three - Bundesliga wins and two - wins in the Champions League).  In the last five matches FCB has scored 12 goals and has conceded zero goals.

     There are two other teams in the Bundesliga with nine league points, yet their goal differential is not as good as FCB's. Schalke 04 and Werder Bremen, both have nine points and a goal differential of four. The defending champions, Borussia Dormund, are in sixth place with seven points and a goal differential of three. The season is still young and teams are still finding their way. But FCB is atop the Bundesliga for the first time since May 2010 and will stay their for a good long while. The team will continue to get better and score more goals. I am still waiting for Muller to getting back into form this year.

    FCB has been given a great group draw for the Champions League. FCB was place in Group A with Manchester City, Napoli, and Villarreal. The only team in the group that has looked really good this season so far is Manchester City. I still doubt that a club playing in the Champions League for the first year can do much of anything. City is playing well and has a very talented squad, but at the same time has fallen flat before. I think FCB will have no problems making it out of the group stage and should challenge for the top qualifier of Group A.
