Bayern Champions League group stage dates set


Bayern Munich have announced the dates for the Champions League group stage fixtures. The Bavarians will start their home title defense on October 21 against Atletico Madrid. Bayern will then travel to Russia next week to face Lokomotiv Moscow on October 27, followed by a shorter trip to Austria to face Red Bull Salzburg on November 3. This ends a three-week streak of midweek games. After a two-week break, Bayern will host Red Bull at the Allianz Arena on November 25. Bayern will then travel to Madrid to face Atletico on December 1 before completing the group stage, hosting Lokomotiv Moscow on December 9.

Due to the condensed season, these weeks will test Bayern in both the Bundesliga and the Champions League. In the first part of the games, Bayern will host Eintracht Frankfurt on the first weekend, but will have to travel to Cologne on the second weekend and Borussia Dortmund on the third weekend. During the second half of the group stage, Bayern will travel to Stuttgart on the first weekend, host RB Leipzig on the second weekend and travel to Berlin to face Union Berlin on the third weekend.

On a positive note, Bayern won’t have to worry about DFB Pokal during the group stage. Bayern’s first round game will be on October 15, and if they advance, the next game will be on December 22 or 23.
