The Bavarian footballer believes Bayern has the biggest chance in Germany to win the Bundesliga trophy, but they still can lose it.
Bayern Munich thrashed Borussia Dortmund last Saturday in a new edition of Der Klassiker in the German Bundesliga.
The game was very important, as it could have to define who wins the title at the end of the 2018-2019 season.
And Bavarian footballer Thomas Muller believes the trophy is theirs to lose.
“We put a young Dortmund side under serious pressure from the outset,” Müller was quoted by the Bundesliga website.
“And when you’re under pressure at the Allianz Arena and go behind so early, it’s not easy for young players, especially when we’re playing full throttle.”
Bayern will take the title home for the seventh consecutive season if they win the next six matches against Fortuna Dusseldorf, Werder Bremen, Nuremberg, Hannover, RB Leipzig, and Eintracht Frankfurt.
“Psychology plays a massive role, as it does in all walks of life. We needed to win and we wanted to make a statement. Now the title’s in our hands,” he added.
“Six wins from six will do it, but we’ve got to travel to Fortuna Düsseldorf and Nuremberg – they won’t be a walk in the park.”
“They’re fighting for points, and Fortuna are on a good run, so we’ve still got work to do. We haven’t played as well as we did against Dortmund for a long time,” he continued.
“We’ve restored the balance of power, but that’ll count for nothing if next week doesn’t go to plan.”
He continued: “At the start of the season, we played with one No.6, then we used two,” explained Bayern coach Niko Kovac, having plumped for a 4-2-3-1 formation at the weekend.”
“It worked well at the start of the season, then we dropped points, so it depends on the opposition, but we’ve come to the point now where we know it works best with Thomas Müller and Thiago in the central areas. They really had a go at Dortmund’s holding players.”
