Despite the unexpected defeat on the seventh round of the championship, Julian Nagelsmann’s men remain among the favorites to win the Bundesliga, which would be the ninth in a row, and the Champions League, which would be the second in just three seasons. Only PSG and Manchester City are ahead of the Bavarians in the top continental competition.
The Germans have nine victories, one draw and one defeat in all competitions, but have lost the undefeated team in European football: only Liverpool and Freiburg do not know what it is to lose in this start of the 2021/22 season.
