    Bayern Munich never gave up in a hard fought game in the Bundesliga against Arminia Bielefeld. Leroy Sané showed once again that he is a special talent by scoring a spectacular goal, not quite Arjen Robben-esque, but a goal of the importance of Robben's goals.

    Bayern Munich return from the international break not with a bang, but with a whimper as the German champions slumped to a 2-1 defeat against FC Augsburg. No one saw this loss coming, but some worrying trends have begun to emerge under coach Julian Nagelsmann. What's going wrong here? Here are our talking points from the game: Why Nagelsmann got his lineup completely wrong, starting with the three-man backline and its demerits. How playing Serge Gnabry at RWB causes a cascading effect on the rest of the system. Why Benjamin Pavard is simply not performing at the level required for Bayern Munich. How Niklas Sule might be the most important player in this team's defense. Marcel Sabitzer's midfield woes, and why he may be becoming Leroy Sane 2.0.

    The international break is finally over, and we are back in Bundesliga business. Bayern Munich face Augsburg this weekend, with many key players coming off of some stellar performances for their countries. Yes, Augsburg haven't been great so far this season, but they do have the tools to frustrate Bayern, and their compact defensive block could be difficult to break down. However, with the Bayern boys in free scoring form, here's hoping that they can bag more goals while keeping a clean sheet against their Bavarian rivals. A tall order, but one that is certainly doable, considering the form and the depth of this squad.

Moving on to Germany — what are Flick's chances at the World Cup? Areas of concern ahead of Qatar 2022. Is Jonas Hofmann the answer at right-back for Germany?

    Bayern Munich traveled to Portugal, the scene of their UEFA Champions League victory in 2020, to take on Benfica in the previous match-day; they beat the Portuguese side, 0 — 4. The goals came really late in that match with the inspiration being Leroy Sané. Since then, a lot has unfolded; Bayern were taken apart by Borussia Mönchengladbach in the DFB Pokal. The defeat, a record defeat for the Bavarians, 5-0, revealed weaknesses in Julian Nagelsmann's side, including the inability to play around an incessant press. While that game was a one-off, the back-line did not look too solid against Union Berlin either. Where Bayern goes from here remains to be seen, although goal scoring does not seem to be a problem.

    Bayern Munich danced their way past Hoffenheim in a fantastic performance; the game was over by the end of the first half as Serge Gnabry and Robert Lewandowski had scored by that time to give Bayern a 2-0 lead. Gnabry has been having a very productive season to date, scoring at a high rate. Lewandowski's was a screamer which came courtesy of Thomas Müller outmuscling Christopher Richards off the ball and setting up the Polish striker. In the second half, goals from substitutes Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting and Kingsley Coman wrapped up the performance. Choupo-Moting is a deft finisher and tends to always scores these days when he comes on a sub. Coman's goal was beautifully set up by Dayot Upamecano with a long range pass from the back.

    After the 4-0 win over Benfica in midweek, Bayern Munich are (figuratively) top of the world. Therefore, as is the way of the world, Hoffenheim are lurking just around the corner to bring the Bavarians crashing back down to earth. This is par for the course for the Sinsheim based club, who have been a thorn in Bayern's side ever since Julian Nagelsmann saved them from relegation all those years ago. In a way, Nagelsmann must face the monster he created — and he has to do it from quarantine, as he tested positive for Covid-19. Here are our talking points ahead of the game: How Bayern loanee Chris Richards stands to make an impression on the club bosses in this game. Tactical considerations for the lineup with Julian Nagelsmann set to miss the game. How the XI could look like, from the defense moving forward. Could Alphonso Davies and Leon Goretzka start? Why it's high time for the coach to start Jamal Musiala and give Leroy Sane some rest. Some final thoughts on what we want to see from the game.

    Bayern Munich taught Bayer Leverkusen a lesson in compact, beautiful one-touch football by slotting five goals past them in the first half. Robert Lewandowski got the party started early on in the first half after Bayer Leverkusen's back-line left Dayot Upamecano open to set up Bayern's #9. Bayern had to defend quite a bit afterward as Leverkusen went searching for an equalizer. However, Bayern's back-line would not be breached and remained compact, dealing with the likes of Florian Wirtz, Patrick Schick and Moussa Diaby easily. There were many star performers in the first half for Bayern but Joshua Kimmich, for the first time in a while, had a fantastic game. He has been solid this season but today showed what Kimmich, a ball-playing, holding midfielder, can do at full strength. Alphonso Davies started and did incredibly well; Leverkusen could not deal with him. Bayern's goals came courtesy of Robert Lewandowski (2), Thomas Müller and Serge Gnabry (2).

    If there was ever going to be a barometer to measure if Hansi Flick's Germany is indeed better than Joachim Löw's Germany, it would be this. Under their former manager, Germany had lost to North Macedonia (albeit a North Macedonia with Goran Pandev); that loss was Germany's first in roughly two decades in a World Cup qualifier. The opposition was the same today and as long as Romania was able to beat Armenia, what was at the stake for Germany was World Cup qualification for Qatar 2022. Hansi Flick made some notable changes. As Antonio Rüdiger was absent due to injury, he inserted Thilo Kehrer into the heart of the defense next to Niklas Süle, played David Raum in the left-back slot and replaced Jonas Hofmann with Lukas Klostermann for the right back slot. He also left out Leroy Sané in favor of Kai Havertz for this one. Be sure to stay tuned to Bavarian Podcast Works for all of your up to date coverage on Bayern Munich and Germany.

    Bayern Munich perhaps could have had more and should have had more. Kevin Trapp, as opposition keepers tend to when they play Bayern, had a wonderful game and perhaps will go down as man of the match. Manuel Neuer was no slouch either, helping in build up play, coming to almost the halfway line to stop Frankfurt's breakaways. Bayern had more shots (by far) and more possession; Leroy Sané had a good game and put in plenty of effort but could not find the back of the net. Robert Lewandowski was very quiet, marked out of the game. His opposite number in Frankfurt, Rafael Santos Borré was isolated and basically also marked out of the game. Bayern's first goal came courtesy of an error by Marin Hinteregger; his pass would deflect off a Bayern player and find its way to Leon Goretzka who would score his first Bundesliga goal of the season. Hinteregger himself would equalize from a corner. Very late on in the game, Filip Kostic would score the winner to hand Frankfurt a first league win of the season.

    Bayern Munich travels to Greuther Fürth in a Bavarian derby this weekend. Fürth is at the bottom of the table with only one point to their name, having been thrashed by VfB Stuttgart on opening weekend. They lost to Hertha Berlin last weekend after having gone up a goal courtesy of a Branimir Hrgota penalty. In this podcast, we take a look at some changes Julian Nagelsmann might make ahead of Bayern's game against Dynamo Kiev in the Champions League in midweek; we also look at Greuther Fürth's struggles and how we think this game will go. We wonder if Marcel Sabitzer might get a start and if Joshua Kimmich (gasp) might get a rest! As always, thanks for your support and let us know what you think!
