Three observations of Bayern Munich’s 4-0 victory over Wolfsburg in the last game of the 2019/20 season


Mickaël Cuisance proves that he deserves more playing time

After Alvaro Odriozola, Mickaël Cuisance was the player who had played the fewest minutes in the last Bayern Munich at the start of the XI in the 2019/20 Bundesliga season. The young Frenchman had something to prove and his impressive demonstration was rewarded with a splendid objective. Offensively, the Strasbourg native was splendid, highlighting his talent as a playmaker and his quick feet. At 21 in August, Cuisance is far from being a complete product. Defensively, he lacks speed in his interceptions and tackles, but offensively he proves why Bayern decided to try his luck last summer.

With the rumor that Thiago and Corentin Tolisso are leaving Munich this summer, does Bayern have their potential replacement in Cuisance? I’d say the Frenchman should have more playing time next year. The big question mark when he arrived in Munich was not his talent but his sometimes disturbing attitude. Off the field, Cuisance did not complain about the lack of playing time and behaved like a complete professional. With the recent success of Alphonso Davies, it would be understandable if Bayern decided to continue the trend of giving young players more playing time. Could the 2020/21 season be the breaking season for Cuisance?

A team full of accomplished professionals

Borussia Dortmund lost to Hoffenheim in big numbers, Köln gave Bremen their biggest win of the season, and Schalke continued their dreadful form with another big loss to Freiburg. These large losses are to be expected. None of the Ruhr teams mentioned above had anything to play for, and the last game of the season is one that usually has big scores and some upheavals.

In Wolfsburg, however, Bayi Munich of Hansi Flick was as usual.

Having nothing to play, Bayern Munich showed why it was a team driven by an extremely winning mentality. Sixteen straight wins are just unbelievable, and that becomes even more fascinating when you consider the problems faced by the team during the Hinrunde. It becomes almost repetitive to congratulate Hansi Flick, as everything about his tenure as Bayern Munich coach has already been said.

He transformed Bayern into a creative, energetic and dominant football team, which is currently one of the best in the world. Bayern Munich are the worthy winner of the 2019/20 Bundesliga season and will have to do their best to maintain this record form until August and the restart of the Champions League.

A one-team league

Whether you like to hear it or not, the Bundesliga became a top team league in the 2010s. Bayern Munich’s (deserved) dominance at the top is something I have already written. While it is important to realize that we are living across the most dominant sides of Bayern Munich nationally, it is also important to think about what went wrong in Europe.
