Stable Lineup

The yearly injury woes are back for Bayern Munich as they are without few players at the moment. Missing pivotal players makes the manager’s job even more difficult as he is not able to field a strong starting XI. However, Flick has done wonders in such a situation.

The German manager has found a way out to tackle this situation and form a stable starting lineup. Die Roten have been playing the same system for the past six Bundesliga games and a much consistent starting XI during Ruckrunde.

A fixed starting lineup makes sure that there is much more cohesiveness in the playing style. The players are much more expressive in the field, not scared about losing their place in the team due to one poor performance. Moreover, team chemistry also improves, helping the players to be on the same wavelength on the pitch.

Flick has stumbled upon a strong formation during the injury crisis. Next step for him will be to find an adequate way of rotation when some players will return to action. It is necessary that players do not become complacent regarding their position in the team, and there is healthy competition for places.
