a case of business as usual for the bavarians. genius go by munich after flying in the thirty second pitch after frankly busy made it to nil lead couzens kevin fallen and pulled one back from the group for the spectacular free kick from time as one of the biggest i did pretty well seeing all three points for part of the result keeps them on track for a record sixth consecutive time. the perfect free kick for moral vasant for look ahead at the second half of the bonus legacies mark oregon with me from t w sports mark fine apparently picking up where they left off in the first off of the season are they a shoo in for the sixth title in a row and suddenly for the rest of the bin this league it looks like again yeah they've been fantastic since this and changing their manager and not blip on the carlo ancelotti in the first part of the season seems a long way away your point has just come in he seems to have i think he's gotten
training more intensively is one thing he's done he also has the likes of as we saw his free kick there a fantastic player i think when he's fired and he's better than anyone in the league he's a cut above on the also of the likes of rebury and they've got the experience there someone has been over the course and i think with that combination he really holds all the cards i think is so yeah it looks like another title he didn't even mention are in rupp and. my favorite players used to play for my my team chelsea let's look at something in the bundesliga that's perhaps a little bit more exciting the race for second place and for the champions league spots who's leading that race at the moment looks like quite a tasty with a bottle between the two top be rivals that of the darby revel should dortmund and i would. see the shell can have the edge knots purely due to one man and spits a shrug of the dortmund coach in the appointment as appointment at dartmouth absolutely staggering he just come off i think you have a three three point the mavs and fourteen games with kalu in the season and he
lands one of the plum jobs you get sacked the coup in london with a plum job in the ground is leaving incredible so i think to desk with a young coach i think he has the edge with us today so i can i can see him now been that seconds for definitely mentioning cologne of course brings to mind the relegation colona you know so weak this season they're almost certainly going down who else is in danger was tempted to say humbug but they seem to be seem to do the houdini act they very year and escape so it wouldn't be on hamburg i think vetter believe it would be it would be my tip purely because they're not scored enough goals thirteen goals in the whole of the first off the season this is not a great return and i think that's that that's the kind of area that really is going to make the difference and i think we'll just we'll slip of getting together somehow as a vet of braman they've had some fine goalscorers in years gone by and they need to find another one to do ok mark from sports many thanks and. now it's
