Bayern Bags Treble Win



Jupp Heynckes and the rest of the Bavarian army are looking forward to winning a treble and give birth to a “new era” of German football as they face the Reds in Olympia Stadion this Saturday.
Currently, the momentum favors the recent Champions League victors Bayern. Robben has been waiting for this. Ribery is equally excited about it. Mandzukic is determined to make the first goal and of course, the match serves as a graceful exit for Heynckes. After enduring down the wire encounters with the best squads, the treble completes Bayern’s impending Bundesliga domination.


As for the VfB Stuttgart’s side, their appearance in the final is already an accomplishment. One has to give credit to the fact that not all squads have the chance to bring home the silverware. It is never an easy feat.


Unfortunately for the Reds, the Bavarians had the upper hand in their six (6) matches. A neutral arena may only work well for the supporters. There’s no chance that this can affect the performance of both squads.


Vfb Stuttgart has shown its strength in making good steals. However, they must readily improve their conversions should they intend to be Bayern’s biggest upset. Likewise, the squad must limit the number of fouls they commit on penalty areas.


But assuming that the Reds shall be in perfect form—addressing all the improvements needed, the biggest question is whether this will be enough to stop the title-hungry Bayern?

Perhaps it is less likely to happen.

Bayern’s journey to the treble trophy has never been easy. Last season, they lost the Champions League trophy to Chelsea. The Chelsea match was a repetition of a bitter defeat against Inter. Now that Bayern has the chance, now that the Bavarians have already redeemed itself in the Champions League arena, losing the German Cup is unforgivable.


Bayern’s record already speaks for the expected win. Among the bookies, the squad is tagged as favorites. 12BET, for one is handing the Asian handicap to VfB Stuttgart.


Anything can happen in football, the odds may favor the Reds. But perhaps, not this time. Definitely, it will be Bayern. Bayern wins the treble in the end.
