Bayern Munich walked all over Paris Saint-Germain when they met in the UCL and they continue to lead the Bundesliga standings. What does the future hold for the Bavarian giants? Find out by clicking on the podcast player below!

Bayern Munich has once again proven their European worth after knocking out Paris Saint-Germain outfit from the UEFA Champions League. The Bavarians were able to win the first leg 1-0, and the second leg 2-0.

This may be exactly why Kylian Mbappe spoke out after the defeat and suggested that Bayern is built for the Champions League and PSG aren’t. Mbappe was restricted during these matches as he was unable to perform. Thomas Muller has suggested that Bayern always does well against teams with Lionel Messi! Julian Nagelsmann looks to have plans and ideas waxed considering his goal was to hold Mbappe down, and his team pulled this off brilliantly. 

Borussia Dortmund has potentially hit a speed bump - first in the UEFA Champions League where they have been booted out of the competition thanks to Kai Havertz, Raheem Sterling, and Chelsea FC. Kres Harrington discusses this and suggests that the English crowd got the better of the travelers. Dortmund then faced off against a relegation-battling team Schalke in the Bundesliga, which resulted in a 2-2 draw. Dortmund had the upper hand on two occasions! Could Dortmund’s season be going downhill from here?
