Bundesliga: Bayern Seek Wolfsburg Win To Stay In Touch With Leaders
Bayern Munich’s trip to VfL Wolfsburg this weekend could represent one of the last chances for under-fire coach Niko Kovac to turn things around for the German champions, who have failed to win any of their previous three Bundesliga matches.
A low-key appointment who took over at the start of the campaign, Kovac has so far failed to make an impact, his team currently on a run of four straight games without a win in all competitions, including the Champions League.
The Bavarians, who have won the last six league titles, sit in sixth place on 13 points, four adrift of leaders Borussia Dortmund. They also travel to AEK Athens for a Champions League group game next week.
A German Cup winner with Eintracht Frankfurt last season, Kovac has struggled to get the best out of his squad, with club president Uli Hoeness showing concern over their current form when he watched training from his office window on Wednesday.
Dortmund, top on 17 points, hope to make it four wins in a row when they travel to bottom side VfB Stuttgart.
