Our match prediction:
Bayern Munich will be shocked after their 2-0 defeat in the Champions League against Arsenal. Arsenal showed the club from Munich why it's not only important to have ball possession but also what to do with the ball. Bayern manager Guardiola was unable to crack the weak Arsenal defense and showed their own weakness when Arsenal started to successfully implement counter attacks. In the 10th round of the Bundesliga the leader of the league will be eager to revenge their earlier defeat. Traditionally the game against 1. Koln won't be a real problem for die Bayern. The Bayern Munich offense will shine and walk over 1. Koln easily.
