Four major takeaways of an eventful 2019/20 season till now for Bayern Munich.

The football has come to an indefinite halt due to coronavirus pandemic across the globe. Various European leagues have suspended games at least till the first weekend of April, but football is unlikely to resume in April as things are getting worse every day. The suspension of games halted Bayern Munich’s charge to win all three trophies this season.

Die Roten has been in fine form since the turn of the year. The defending Bundesliga champions are yet to lose a game in 2020, dropping points only once in the league against RB Leipzig. Courtesy of this form, Rekordmeister regained the top spot in the league table with a four-point lead over Borussia Dortmund.

In the cup competitions, Bayern has delivered a similar type of performance. They had to work hard against Schalke to book a place in the semi-finals of the DFB Pokal. Meanwhile, their chances of playing the quarterfinals of the Champions League significantly increased after a thumping 3-0 win against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

It has been a season full of ups and downs for Die Roten, but they were on an upward trajectory before football was suspended across the world. To get a quick recap of the season, here are key takeaways for Bayern Munich for the 2019/20 season till now.
