Under Nagelsmann, Bayern hasn’t played up to their potential, with the club facing a 2-1 defeat to Bayern Leverkusen in the Bundesliga that saw them slip to the second position in the league. Although, the champions have played excellently in the Champions League.
Bayern Munich is through to the quarter-finals of the Champions League but faces a stiff test next against Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City. The fixture sees Pep Guardiola take on his former side, with the tie winners set to face Real Madrid or Chelsea for a place in the final.
