Arminia Bielefeld is hosting Bayern Munich at Schuco-Arena in round 4 in the German Bundesliga.
Arminia has been solid so far in Bundesliga with 1 win, 1 draw, and 1 loss, which is good for the newcomer to Bundesliga. With 4 points, Arminia is in 10th place in Bundesliga standings. In their latest Bundesliga match against Werder on the road, Arminia was the better team with 64% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 1 corner kick, 2 big chances created, and a solid 82% of the correct passes. Arminia conceded a goal in the 27th minute, and they weren’t able to penetrate Werder’s defense after that, and Arminia has lost this match 1-0. Voglasammer, De Medina, and Maier are all injured, and they will not be in the lineup for this match. Edmundsson and Soukau have each scored 1 goal for Arminia so far this season. Ortega added 1 assist. Arminia’s only goal this season is to secure their Bundesliga status for next season, and they have started well but it's still too early to say what kind of team Arminia is. This match against Bayern is their first big test, but if Arminia can win points against the weaker teams in Bundesliga, they might just have enough to secure their status.
After a long, long winning streak, it finally happened, Bayern has lost a game in Bundesliga a couple of weeks ago to Hoffenheim on the road. After that loss, Bayern went on a 2-game winning streak. First, Bayern beat Borussia Dortmund in the German Super Cup, and then they beat Hertha in Bundesliga. Bayern was the dominant team in that match against Hertha with 67% of ball possession, 9 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks, 7 big chances created, and 86% of the correct passes. This was an incredibly exciting game where Bayern had a 2-0 lead in the 51st minute, but Hertha came back with 2 goals, in the 59th and 71st minute. In the 85th minute, Bayern scored another goal, and they were ahead once again. Just three minutes after, Hertha is coming back with another goal. Just when I thought the teams will split points here, Hertha conceded a penalty kick, and Lewandowski scored his 4th goal in this game. Bayern has won this match 4-3. Lewandowski has now scored 5 goals for Bayern so far this season, while Gnabry added 3 goals. Sane, Muller, Kimmich, Gnabry, and Lewandowski each added 2 assists. Kouassi, Sane, and Sarr are injured, and they will not be playing in this match. Bayern will also be playing in the Champions League next week, which means we could expect a mixed lineup for this match.
The trends are on Bayern’s side in this matchup, but the last game these two teams played against each other was back in 2009. No matter which lineup Bayern takes to the field, they are the better team here, and they shouldn’t have a problem beating Arminia. I’m sticking with Bayern on the road.
