Bayern Munich has largely struggled in the last four league games due to inefficiency in the final third. The defending Bundesliga champions were not ruthless in the attack, which eventually cost them points in four games. Bayern Munich forwards are currently under pressure to get back in form and start scoring goals at a consistent rate.
Serge Gnabry is one of the forwards at Die Roten that is going through a poor run of form. The German winger also struggled to make an impact for the national team during the international break. According to Sport1, Bayern chiefs are concerned about the form of Gnabry. This report insists that the inconsistency of Gnabry has perplexed Julian Nagelsmann and the club hierarchy.
Gnabry has two goals and one assist to his name this season for Die Roten. The inconsistency in his performances has led to his demotion to the bench. The German international has been coming off the bench in the past few games.
Bayern would have hoped for a strong start to the season for Serge Gnabry since his future at the club was sorted in the summer. The former Arsenal forward signed a new four-year deal at Bayern after complex negotiations that lasted over months. He was heavily linked with a move away from Bavaria, but Die Roten eventually found a breakthrough in negotiations.
Gnabry’s poor form at the club level has also affected his chances of starting regularly for Germany. He came off the bench for Germany’s games against Hungary and England during the international break. The winger’s cameos were also not up to the standard since he couldn’t provide impetus in the final third.
Ahead of the World Cup in Qatar later this year, Gnabry could end up becoming an option from the bench for Germany instead of starting every game. The German winger needs to deliver consistent performances for Bayern in October to regain his place in the starting XI of Germany.
Gnabry is expected to start on the bench against Bayer Leverkusen on Friday. He needs to initially impress while coming off the bench to eventually cement his place in the starting XI. The German winger needs to contribute a good number of goals this season, so his form needs to improve sooner rather than later.

Nagelsmann will be hoping to improve the overall chemistry in the front four. All attacking players were not on the same wavelength against Augsburg. The German coach needs to find a suitable system that helps all forwards, which will eventually help Bayern to get out of the poor run of form in the Bundesliga.
