Both teams in their worst period of season, both unable to win in recent 3 games, but the trouble in Bayern is not that big, like coach Ancelotti and captain Lahm said, their have attitude problem, after nice start of the season, some main players just lost their concentration. Ancelotti required all players in Hotel together for prepared this game, is a nice wake up call for all players, Bayern players always without pressure in Bundesliga games, but Champions League is totally different, they will focus against and thirst for fight back the glory in 2013. Ribery is the only injured player in the team, all attackers are available. Thomas Muller scored 2 goals against Rostov, will have better feeling in Champions League game, and Lewandowski only playes less than half hour in last league game, will rest enough and totally focus in this game. Bayern really have too much weapons in attack, Ancelotti said that Robben finally full fit again, and trust that he can flying in this home game.
On the other side, PSV`s problem is not only attitude, they are playing very bad recently, without idea in attack, and also poor in defence, after Jeffrey Bruma join Wolfsburg in summer, they have not supplement and defence is clear weaken. They are already out of top 3 on Eredivisie league table, coach Cocu will feel hard to brace up at that moment and situation.
This is the first meeting of both teams, I see hugh class different, Bayern can win by at least 2 goals for me.
