BERLIN, Jan. 14 (Xinhua) – Consistency seems to be the common denominator of two clubs in the German national league that have slipped into the role of surprises this season.

With TSG Hoffenheim and SC Freiburg crashing into the phalanx of established clubs desperately fighting for international participation remains something unexpected.

At the same time, the story of the current Bundesliga number three and four seems to serve as an example for football clubs who have likely exaggerated their expectations very likely find themselves at a dead end.

The stories of VfL Wolfsburg and Hertha BSC represent the best stories of clubs suffering from unrealistic expectations and far too impatient politics.

The continuous changes of coaches and players go against a clear plan followed by the so-called underdogs.

Freiburg coach Christian Streich celebrated his 10th anniversary in December 2021 as head coach of his club.

The 56-year-old has been selecting players for more than a decade that match his demand and that of the club to deliver passionate football, in addition to the core belief in feeling comfortable with the role of an underdog.

The main stake of Friborg is team spirit and investing all that one has to offer in team sports football.

Streich’s credo: international participation is good, but not the meaning of football life.

In the Hoffenheim coach, Sebastian Hoeness had the chance to continue his way despite difficult times with his team supposed to be stuck in the inconsistency.

The club’s general manager has proven his confidence in the potential of one of Germany’s most talented coaches.

Hoeness fought despite the burden of having a famous name in German football as the son of former German international and Bayern player Dieter Hoeness. Things have not improved for the coach as his uncle is none other than Uli Hoeness, the former architect of the Bayern empire.

Neither Hoeness nor Streich like to talk about critics saying their small clubs do not bolster the international reputation of German club football.

Both leave it up to experts to point out that clubs such as Wolfsburg, Bayer Leverkusen and Borussia Dortmund have failed to advance to the knockout stages of the Champions League despite some manageable group opponents this season.

While Bayern Munich’s dominance makes many fans bored, it’s the underdogs who spark the excitement below the Bavarians.

Up to ninth place in the championship, from second (Dortmund) to ninth (Leipzig), eight clubs compete for one sport in an international competition.

Freiburg represents the best defense in the league outside of Bayern (18 goals conceived), while Hoffenheim draws attention after seven games unbeaten.

The two clubs have entered a niche apart from the clubs which have invested much larger sums.

Reports speak of Andrej Kramaric extending his contract soon despite interest from several European clubs in the Croatian striker. Left-back David Raum has made his debut in the German national team. Freiburg created several German internationals and turned the club into a place to watch for the German national coach.

Transfer News: Chelsea target Kingsley Coman to sign contract extension with Bayern Munich

According to the French publication The team [Print Edition] via Sport Witness, as quoted by Absolute Chelsea (h / t Football.London), Chelsea transfer target Kingsley Coman is expected to sign a contract extension with Bayern Munich soon. He hasn’t gained many minutes this season, having suffered injuries at regular intervals.

The Blues had “made an offer” to land the Frenchman but took a heavy blow with this update. His current contract will end in June 2023, which has seen him be linked with a move to Stamford Bridge. However, that seems to be out of place and he will now sign a new deal with Bayern.

Manchester City were also keeping an eye on Coman as he tried to facilitate a move to strengthen their squad, but their plans were thwarted by this update. It remains to be seen whether Thomas Tuchel’s team will turn their attention to anyone else in the coming days.

And after?

The prospect of signing the 25-year-old would have been great considering that some of our attacking signings haven’t reached the heights they have shown at their previous clubs. Although they’ve started clicking again recently, it would have been nice if we had several options to choose from if they couldn’t manage to maintain that shape.

Then again, there are downsides like the regular injury issues that the France international continues to plague for some time. Despite that, he has scored five goals and two assists in just 905 minutes in all competitions this quarter. But all is not lost because his signature would not have been a priority for us anyway.

On the contrary, the defensive areas should be the ones we should focus on, given the injury issues as well as the contractual situation of some of the players. Antonio Rudiger, Cesar Azpilicueta and Andreas Christensen are within the last six months of their respective deals and could leave next summer if they make the decision.

Ben Chilwell and Reece James are currently injured and there are no options to make up for their absence. Azpilicueta is not a natural winger but can still do a good job in this role, while Marcos Alonso is Chilwell’s only replacement. It shows how there is a need for reinforcement regardless of their availability.

In the latest update, Eurosport revealed that the Bundesliga forward has finalized the signing and extended his contract until 2027.

Update:

New US Augsburg striker Ricardo Pepi, left, is replaced during the Bundesliga soccer match between TSG 1899 Hoffenheim and FC Augsburg in Sinsheim, Germany on Saturday January 8, 2022 (Uwe Anspach / dpa via AP)

SINSHEIM, Germany (AP) – US forward Ricardo Pepi made his Bundesliga debut for Augsburg in a 3-1 loss at Hoffenheim on Saturday.

Pepi, 18, who joined Augsburg from Dallas from Major League Soccer on Monday, came on in the 60th minute with his new team already down 2-1.

Augsburg coach Markus Weinzierl introduced Florian Niederlechner along with Pepi, and both forwards immediately gave the visitors a boost. Pepi sent Niederlechner late in the game, but his teammate’s cross was cleared before the offside flag was raised.

Hoffenheim coach Sebastian Hoeneß responded with two defensive changes as his side responded with counterattacks. Hoffenheim defender David Raum finally settled the problem in added time.

Augsburg fell into the relegation zone with the loss.

“We had a few chances to come away with at least one point, but our opponents also played well,” said Pepi, as quoted by Augsburg. “The half hour of play that I got did me good. I have a good feeling for the team and for the league too. The team and everyone at the club made me feel welcome.

Augsburg has reportedly agreed to pay more than € 13million ($ 14.8million) plus potential add-ons for Pepi, which would be the highest amount for a transfer from a local US player to MLS. He has signed a 4 1/2 seasons contract which includes an option to extend until the 2026-2027 season with the German club.

Pepi made his MLS debut in 2019. He scored 13 goals in 31 league games for Dallas last season.

Pepi made his United States debut in September and scored three goals in seven international matches.

Goalkeepers:
Mark Flekken, Friborg (7.8M)

Unlike other competitions in Europe, the Bundesliga generally has an interesting fight for the top four places.

He tends to go all the way with a cycle of similar teams taking turns to finish in the top four and reach the Champions League.

Apart from Bayern Munich in the lead and possibly Borussia Dortmund in second, it is possible that two new clubs will burst into top-level sports, with a potentially intriguing second half of the season starting on Friday.

Philosophy, pressing style and training

The fourths of the last three seasons – Wolfsburg, Borussia Mönchengladbach and Bayer Leverkusen – all had a football philosophy focused on the counterattack rather than playing from behind in a more possession-based manner.

It should be noted that two of the coaches of these teams, Oliver Glasner and Marco Rose, were from Red Bull football.

To initiate their counterattacks, all three teams had a similar pressure approach, including pressure signals or triggers (a sign for the team to press down on the opponent), pressure direction and style of pressure. marking. For the majority of matches, these teams used a 4-2-3-1 formation in all phases of play.

The red circles show the marking of the man within this formation

These similarities indicate which teams are best positioned to break into Champions League places this season.

Gerardo Seoane’s season

Leverkusen seems like the obvious choice, but having not finished in the top four since the 2018/19 season and having fallen considerably at the end of the 2019/20 campaign, the club are out of action for longer than expected.

They are currently fourth and are still finding their rhythm under the guidance of a new coach. Gerardo Seoane’s style of play shares the greatest similarities with former fourth-ranked teams, including the aforementioned 4-2-3-1 formation.

Within that structure, they aim to isolate their opponents on the wing, creating a one-on-one scoring style that forces high ball wins and dangerous counterattacks. Plus, Leverkusen’s individual quality combined with speed and agility make it fun.

New success at the stadium for Streich?

Friborg, third, which was the last team to be beaten this season on Matchday 11, is also in contention. One of the reasons for Freiburg’s successes and why they can continue to improve is their consistency and continuity under the guidance of coach Christian Streich.

They usually alternate between two formations, a 3-4-3 and a 4-2-3-1, which seems to be a key factor in moving closer to Champions League football in the Bundesliga.

Freiburg is less aggressive in its pressing style but favors counterattacks rather than a possession-based approach. Within their selected formation, they also try to force the opponent to push aside and put pressure on them in wide areas. Instead of gaining the ball at the top of the pitch, they focus more on deeper defense and have more room to counter afterwards.

Hoeness gives hope to Hoffenheim

Hoffenheim, fifth, have been the unexpected contender this season, putting in a strong performance for the first time since the 2017/18 season. Compared to Freiburg and Leverkusen they are working in a slightly different setup, with coach Sebastian Hoeness sticking to three / five behind and out of possession.

Hoffenheim is also well prepared for dangerous counterattacks, but creates more of it in a structured and organized building game. They use three wide center-backs and a pivot player to pass the ball into the higher areas of the pitch.

Their direct attack style is supported by their wings. In possession, they add breadth and depth to their game by occupying higher positions. From this structure, they generate many breakthroughs that often lead to some promising chances after high and low crosses.

Passage angles of Hoffenheim

Of all the teams in contention for the top four, Hoeness’s Hoffenheim are farthest in style than the teams that have finished fourth in previous years.

Nonetheless, the trend continues that a certain philosophy of Bundesliga football allows you to get ahead in a tight league.

Augsburg moved at the start of the January transfer window, securing the signing of rising American star Ricardo Pepi from Major League Soccer (MLS) club FC Dallas for a fee that could reach $ 20million (17.6million). euros).

The forward, who has scored 15 goals in 55 MLS games since his 2019 debut, turns 19 on January 9 and is considered one of America’s brightest young prospects. He hopes to follow in the footsteps of Christian Pulisic, Gio Reyna, Tyler Adams, Weston McKennie and other Americans to make a name for himself in the Bundesliga.

The guaranteed fees by FC Dallas are the second highest ever collected by an MLS club for a player, with the signing of € 24million ($ 27million) of Miguel Almiron by Newcastle United from Atlanta United, still the MLS record.

Pepi’s international scores are promising, having scored three times in just seven games since making his US debut in September 2021. His brace against Jamaica in World Cup qualifying in October saw him promoted by the Coach Gregg Berhalter has a place in the starting lineup in the next match against Honduras, in which he also scored.

Pepi’s eye for goal and the potential to become an elite striker had alerted other European clubs to his availability, with Wolfsburg, Ajax and Real Madrid also keeping an eye on the El Paso, TX player. . However, a deal has been made with Augsburg which, despite beating Bayern Munich in November, is just one point ahead of Stuttgart, occupying the qualifying spot. With just 17 goals in as many Bundesliga appearances this season, Augsburg is desperate for goals.

Ricardo Pepi is the last American to make it to the Bundesliga to continue his development.

Who is the American investor in Augsburg?

American billionaire David Blitzer, an investor in Augsburg since April 2021, is also believed to have played a role in securing the deal. Blitzer has been a personal friend of Augsburg President Klaus Hofmann for 20 years.

Augsburg has targeted the United States in a bid to expand its appeal across the Atlantic, particularly in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has slashed the club’s revenue to the tune of around $ 30.8 million . A planned summer tour of the United States had to be canceled in 2020 due to the pandemic, but Pepi’s signing suggests an ongoing commitment to the region.

Pepi could be in contention for his debut on January 8, when Augsburg resumes his campaign with a difficult trip to Hoffenheim, which is fifth and is aiming for a Champions League berth.

Bayern Munich are a force to be reckoned with in European football and are an absolutely dominant team in the Bundesliga. The Bavarians have won the Bundesliga title 30 times (a league record), nine of which have been in contention since the 2012-13 campaign.

This season they have taken a step forward to another title by being crowned Herbstmeister, or winter champions in December.

Their offense has been their greatest strength in recent years and they consistently rank among the top teams in Europe’s top five leagues at the end of each season.

As the reigning champions end 2021 at the top of the league table with a nine-point lead over Borussia Dortmund, here we take a look at five reasons why Bayern Munich will win the Bundesliga 2021-22.


# 5 Bayern Munich’s impressive record against potential title contenders

Bayern Munich have lost only twice in the Bundesliga this season
Bayern Munich have lost only twice in the Bundesliga this season

While it’s important to be consistent throughout the season and consistently get wins against small teams, for a team that challenges the title, it’s crucial to measure up against big teams.

Bayern Munich have shown poise and determination to do just that this season. They haven’t lost to other Bundesliga teams in the top five so far. Their only loss to a team in the top half of the table was a shock 2-1 home loss to Eintracht Frankfurt in October.

They performed well against their direct rivals for the title and the comeback victory over Borussia Dortmund was one of their best performances of the season. It was their sixth consecutive league victory at Der Klassiker.

Some of their biggest wins this season have come against RB Leipzig (4-1 in September) and Bayer Leverkusen (5-1 in October). They avoid dropping points in key games which helps them keep a good lead at the top.


# 4 Bayern Munich have never lost nine points after the winter break

Bayern Munich managed to be winter champions for the 25th time in Bundesliga history
Bayern Munich have managed to be winter champions for the 25th time in Bundesliga history

Bayern Munich have been winter Bundesliga champions 25 times so far, more than any other top German team. Out of their nine consecutive winning campaigns, they had failed to lead the standings during the winter break only twice, in 2018 and 2019.

Of the 25 times they’ve managed to be crowned fall champions, they haven’t lost their way in the top 21, an astonishing 84% success rate.

While being at the top of the standings midway through the campaign is no guarantee of success, it will be difficult for a team to earn points at the same rate as the strongest team in the league.

Celtic face competition in transfer race for Bundesliga star https://papierkugel.org/celtic-face-competition-in-transfer-race-for-bundesliga-star/ Wed, 29 Dec 2021 13:09:22 +0000 https://papierkugel.org/celtic-face-competition-in-transfer-race-for-bundesliga-star/ MUNICH, GERMANY – MAY 08: Benjamin Pavard of FC Bayern Muenchen is challenged by Hannes Wolf of Borussia Moenchengladbach during the Bundesliga match between FC Bayern Muenchen and Borussia Moenchengladbach at Allianz Arena on May 08, 2021 in Munich, Germany. Sports stadiums across Germany remain under strict restrictions due to the coronavirus pandemic, as government […]]]>

One area where Celtic could certainly make more reinforcements is their midfielder. There was already a lack of options there to start with, with James McCarthy and Ismaila Soro battling for form under the leadership of Angel Postecoglou. And now David Turnbull has picked up an injury that should keep him out for a long time. So the Hoops might need to strengthen in the middle of the park in January.

Celtic have previously been linked with moves for Reo Hatate and Yosuke Ideguchi, both of whom can play in the middle of the park. But they are linked to another player there, who is currently playing in the Bundesliga.

That man is Hannes Wolf from Borussia Mönchengladbach, who has struggled to make an impression lately. According to Transfermarkt statistics, he has made 8 appearances for Borussia Mönchengladbach this season and has not been able to provide a goal or assist.

He had shown enormous potential during his time at RB Salzburg, however, and there is still a lot of interest in his signing. As reported by Bild (via Bulinews), Wolf is wanted by Celtic, Trabzonspor and Rapid Wien.

Celtic face competition in transfer race for Wolf

There is no doubt about Wolf’s talent and potential. He just failed to make it in the Bundesliga.

As a result, a move might be the right step for him at this point and at 22 he has plenty of time on his side to turn his career around.

An attacking midfielder for the most part, Wolf can also play on the flanks and as a result he could be a solid addition to Postecoglou’s squad, although it is clear that the transfer race will be tough for him.
