NOTHING TO LOSE

Bayern Munich defender Holger Badstuber has said that the players of Bayern Munich do not have nothing to lose in the second leg encounter with Real Madrid.

Bayern Munich came away from the first leg after having defeated Real Madrid 2-1 after a late goal from Mario Gomez.

This significant advantage now means that Bayern Munich can play for a draw at the Santiago Bernabeu when the second leg match between the two clubs takes place next week. Ribery opened the scoring for Bayern Munich after a difficult first few minutes for the home team.

HEYNCKES NOT WORRIED

Bayern Munich manager Jupp Heynckes has said that he is not worried about the rumours circulating about his future following a run of very poor results.

Bayern Munich were doing extremely well in the initial part of the campaign, but their form has nosedived both in the domestic and European fronts.

As a result, Bayern Munich are at the stage where they have conceded the possibility of winning the title. This comes as a major shock for many who have witnessed Bundesliga over the years. It has been more than 20 years since Bayern Munich were out of the title race by March.

BAYERN SET TO PROFIT

German football superpower Bayern Munich might not hold the rights of Germany international striker Lukas Podolski anymore, but the Bavarian side is the one that is in line to make a significant profit if the former Bayern man is sold to English Premier League club at the end of the season by his current club Koln.

SCHWEINSTEIGER RULED OUT

Bayern Munich have confirmed the fact that star midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger will be missing several weeks of the season due to the ankle injury suffered recently.

Bastian Schweinsteiger suffered an ankle injury recently and hobbled off the pitch. The worst was feared, and the fears turned out to be true after Bayern Munich confirmed that it may be several weeks before they get to see their star midfielder in action once again.

BOATENG HAPPY WITH BAYERN MOVE

Jerome Boateng insists that his move to Bayern Munich has been the best decision he has made in his career. He only moved to Bayern last summer, but has already proven himself as a class act, and a star performer for the club.

Boateng recently announced that one of his best decisions for his professional career was joining Munich, before going on to say that he feels at home in Munich, and that the local mentality is just perfect for him.

BAYERN SET FOR BRIGHT FUTURE

Bayern Munich President Uli Hoeness has said that Bayern Munich are set for much bigger things in the future. Bayern Munich recently made it into the Champions League final against Inter Milan, but could not repeat the success in 2001.

As a result, Bayern Munich still wait for their first major trophy in Europe since the start of the decade. However, they have been absolutely unstoppable in the Bundesliga this season. The signing of Arjen Robben from Real Madrid and Mario Gomez from Stuttgart seems to have injected the necessary pace to the side.

Robben in dive apology

Arjen Robben has issued an apology for a “stupid” dive which took place during Bayern Munich’s victory over Bochum on Tuesday night.

The Dutch midfielder was booked for the incident which took place in the 41st minute of the match when he seemed to skip away from a challenge before throwing himself to the floor in stages.

Robben has now admitted that the decision was not the wisest, calling it “stupid”, but did not seem entirely repentant about what he had done.

BAYERN SUFFER SHOCK DEFEAT

Bayern Munich will be heading back to the basics on the training ground after the shock defeat at the hands of Mainz. Bayern Munich's form in recent weeks has certainly been extremely poor and a major source of concern for the Bundesliga leaders. With the latest defeat to Mainz, they are no longer the leaders of the German League, and have fallen back into the third. Dortmund have seized the opportunity to go top of the table. It was only recently that Dortmund managed to beat Bayern Munich. Not many would have thought that Bayern Munich would have suffered yet another defeat so soon.

DORTMUND CLOSE THE GAP

Reigning Bundesliga Champions Borussia Dortmund closed the gap on leaders Bayern Munich to just two points with a dramatic 1-0 victory in Munich, despite a late Bayern charge.

The main talking point before the game was the return of Bayern talisman Arjen Robben, however there were to be no celebrations for the flying Dutchman as his side failed to create chances in the first half, and left their assault too late to trouble the on-form Champions.

Mario Gotze was the man who provided the game's only goal, taking advantage of a cruel deflection to slip the ball into the bottom corner.

DORTMUND STAR WARNS BAYERN

Dortmund goalkeeper Roman Weidenfeller insists that the Bundesliga title race is still wide open - and that Dortmund are finally in the right form to start taking on the German Champions.

Having run Bayern close last season, Dortmund are keen to continue pushing for the top spot, and lie just three points behind the Bavarians.

"Sure, Bayern have an exceptional team with strong individual players, but they haven't won the championship title yet," Weidenfeller told the Bild.
