Another mouth-watering clash coming up sees Nigeria take on The Black stars in what promises to be a monster battle. Former Bundesliga star Leon Balogun has been recalled to the national team, joining current Union Berlin stalwart Taiwo Awoniyi.

‘Bayern Need To Pick Themselves Up’

After a crucial victory in the UEFA Champions League against RB Salzburg (7-1) which saw Robert Lewandowski scoring the fasting hatrick in UCL history, The Bavarian giants returned to Germany to play against Hoffenheim. Bayern went down 1-0 in the 32nd minute but of course, Lewandowski found the back of the net, towards the end of the first half leveling things out at 1-1.

Could Lewe Make A ‘Devilish’ Move?

With only one year left on his current deal, Robert Lewandowski's future with Bayern Munich looks to be up in the air. The Polish striker has admitted that he hasn’t made a decision regarding his future with the Bavarian giants. Amidst all the speculation as to where the 33-year-old may feature, the English Premier League seems to be leading the races with the likes of Arsenal, Newcastle United, and both Manchester clubs. Manchester United manager Ralf Rangnick is a huge fan of the 2021 Ballon d”Or runner up and has been since his time in the Bundesliga. Since United signed the 5-time Ballon d”or winner, Ronaldo hasn’t made a big enough impact which is affecting him personally and it looks like he will leave at the end of the season and provided things go according to plan, Lewandowski could be the ideal replacement

With Bayern Munich keeping a keen eye on Norwegian 'Wunderkind' Erling Haaland, Lewa may be feeling disrespected as it is evident Bayern’s number 9 is in the form of his life having scored 39 goals this season already.

Bayern Munich and breaking records go hand in hand and seems to be a story we’ve seen countless times in recent years. This past weekend saw the reigning Bundesliga Champions rewrite history yet again after their 4-1 landslide win over Hertha BSC which meant that Munich have now scored 65 goals in only 20 matches; the most goals at this stage of the league for any team.
