Niko Kovač is heading towards his second season at Bayern Munich. Having won the national double, the Croatian coach surely aims do bring Bayern back at the top of Europe and do better in the Champions League than last season. However, the Bavarian squad faced some changes, as two of Bundesliga’s all-time bests, Franck Ribéry and Arjen Robben, are not part of the team anymore.

In this scout report, we will provide a tactical analysis of how Bayern intend to play in the upcoming season and what their idea on how to move on after the loss of such important players could look like. The analysis will focus on the tactics from the first friendlies of the season
