FC Bayern Munich Week 2 and 1st Champions League game

FC Bayern Munich (FCB) played at Vfl Wolfsburg in week 2 of the Bundesliga season. The first half of match was played very even by both teams. Although thanks to a very friendly call by the refs, a goal by Vfl Wolfsburg was disallowed. The goal should have been allowed, because the Wolfsburg player was not off-side. FCB claimed all 3 pointed in stoppage time when Luis Gustavo Dias scored! Earlier in the week some of the key players said that FCB needed to win the next three matches after losing the first and FCB is off to a good start.

I was excited to see Franck Ribbery playing great out on the pitch. Ribbery seems to have recovered from his preseason injury. Although, the club is having trouble getting the ball in the back of the net. Through 2 Bundesliga games FCB only has one goal, which ties FCB for last in goals scored with three other clubs: Bayer Leverkusen, Kaiserslautern, and FC Cologne. My take is that the club is still getting use to the new offense that Jupp Heynckes has installed at FCB.

Today was the first Champions League game for FCB. FCB played FC Zurich at the Allianz Arena in Munich. The Allianz Arena will host the final of the Champions league in May. FCB is trying to reach the final for the second time in three years. FCB beat FC Zurich two to zero, with goals scored by Schweinsteiger (8') and Robben (72'). Although this was not exactly a tough match up for the Bavarian Giants. As FC Zurich walked out onto the pitch, their players were looking around at the crowd with a sense of amazement. The shock of 69,000 screaming FCB fans was too much to handle for some of the FC Zurich players and one stopped at the touch-line. So one of his teammates had to go back and grab him for the line-up before the game. Hopefully the two goals will spark the FCB offense and the club will score more goals on Saturdays and Sundays!!
