Bayern’s top performing player is Arjen Robben. The Dutch plays on the wing but often brings his play to the mid lane in order to open space down the flank. Robben is also the team’s best scorer with an impressive 16 goals.

On their midfield, quality is also abundant. With Ribery creating the team’s best plays and Alonso holding the defensive midfield while also participating on the offensive dynamics.

On the back line. Boateng and Badstuber are excellent at taking advantage of the team’s offensive set pieces while being great defenders as well.

On this match we expect, as usual, great ball control from Bayern with a high block putting enormous pressure on the opponent’s defence.
