This ruthless Bayern Munich schedule will get Thomas Tuchel fired by October – Bavarian Football Works

Filed under:
This is a crazy way to start off a new season.
Next season’s Bundesliga schedule has been officially release aaaand, someone at the DFL must hate Thomas Tuchel, because there’s no other explanation for this. Bayern Munich have a grueling schedule to start the season, which could honestly see the former Chelsea coach fired by October if he isn’t careful.
Here, take a look for yourself.

In case that graphic is too confusing to read (because honestly, who makes a list like that?) here is the whole thing in order:
MD1: Werder Bremen (Away)
MD2: Augsburg (Home)
MD3: Gladbach (Away)
MD4: Bayer Leverkusen (Home)
MD5: VfL Bochum (Home)
MD6: RB Leipzig (Away)
MD7: SC Freiburg (Home)
MD8: Mainz (Away)
MD9: Darmstadt (Home)
MD10: Borussia Dortmund (Away)
MD11: Heidenheim (Home)
MD12: Köln (Away)
MD13: Union Berlin (Home)
MD14: Frankfurt (Away)
MD15: Stuttgart (Home)
MD16: Wolfsburg (Away)
MD17: Hoffenheim (Home)
Reverse the home and away order for the second half of the season. The Winter Break will take place between matchday 16 and 17, from December 20 to January 16.
Now here’s a breakdown of why the early season is so treacherous this year:
After this, Bayern’s schedule stabilizes a little, with mostly mid-table teams except for Union Berlin. So basically the months of August, September, and October will be a gauntlet of games where each matchday could push the squad to the limit if they’re not careful.
If Thomas Tuchel is unable to get his team off to a bright start, then things could go off the rails very quickly. Two points dropped vs Augsburg could easily turn into 15-18 points dropped by the time the Klassiker rolls around, if the team doesn’t come out of the gates swinging. We could see a repeat of the annual Bayern “Autumn Crisis” where the coach’s actions are questioned — this often coincides with formation changes, nonsensical lineups, and Thomas Muller being benched.
It would be nice to have a season where that DOESN’T happen, but given the way Tuchel ended things last season, it’s best to not have high expectations. There’s also the question of the new striker and how he’ll fit in with the team — even if it’s someone like Harry Kane, if your opening games feature teams like Augsburg and Gladbach, you’re gonna have a rough start.
The only way forward is to get everything locked in from the very start. Tuchel, however, seems like he’s going to experiment. Let’s see where all of this leads.
