Three key observations in Bayern Munich’s strong return to football.

Bayern Munich took a massive stride towards an eighth consecutive Bundesliga title on Tuesday. The German club won away at Borussia Dortmund to open a seven-point gap at the top of the table. Other results in midweek have further strengthened Die Roten’s position at the top of the table.

Hansi Flick has turned the club’s season upside down since becoming the first team manager in November. After initially appointed as interim coach, Flick has earned himself a new two-year deal after guiding the team to impressive results in the past six months.

After signing the new deal, Flick had added pressure to get the team hit the ground running when football resumed after a two-month break due to coronavirus. Die Roten has shown ruthlessness and won all three league games against Union Berlin, Eintracht Frankfurt, and Borussia Dortmund.

All three league performances were impressive and highlighted important qualities of the squad. Rekordmeister is yet to lose a game in 2020, building a good sort of momentum ahead of a possible resumption of the Champions League. Here are key observations made during Die Roten’s return to football after a two-month break.
