Niko Kovac states that belief seems to be returning to Bayern Munich following their second victory to rise up to the third position in Bundesliga table. They secured a win against Werder Bremen with a 2-1 score.
Bayern thrashed Benfica to build on the 5-1 in Champions League. Serge Gnabry has scored twice in Bremen for ending the series of shameful results without having to secure a win in November.
Bayern is lagging 9 points behind Borussia Dortmund, the leader and is going to drop to 5th in case Eintracht Frankfurt is able to earn a straight win for the 5th time to Wolfsburg at home and RB Leipzig defeats Monchengladbach placed in the second position.
Kovac has said that the team has a belief in them and they feel that we can do it when he had been asked about the large gap behind Dortmund. He says that when the players are fit and they play for each, the team can be difficult to beat. The last time the club was in such a bad position in the table was in the year 2010-11.
There is a great room for improvement when it comes to defense since Yuya Osako, the Bremen’s striker overshadowed, Jerome Boateng for equalizing even before the break of half-time. Kovac has accepted that they defended too passively, particularly in the ten minutes when they took the lead. They have talked about thing quite often but he feels that at times talking is not enough and it becomes necessary to deal with those things directly.
