17, The four German clubs playing in the Champions League managed to score a total of 17 goals in their games this week. Four wins for all of Bayern Munich, Schalke 04, Borussia Dortmund and Bayer Leverkusen stood out from all the action happening this week. The Germans are dominating the game.
While Italian clubs suffer, Athletic Bilbao put Spain’s reputation on the line, Portuguese and French teams have had a mix of results while the only Englis team to be performing well is Chelsea, the Germans found themselves as this year’s dominant force or at least until now.
Bayer Leverkusen are leading group C, Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich are flawless in groups D and E respectively and Schalke are just two points behind Chelsea in Group G. All four clubs have placed their utmost focus on the Champions League this season and they have shown strength and character on the pitch as they seem to be confident of progressing to the next stage.
Roma have been playing quite well this season and their results in Serie A and in the two previous Champions League games show that the team is far better than the previous years but they had no chance when they played Bayern at the Stadio Olimpico. The Bavarians scored goal after goal without showing any mercy on the Italians until they reached a tally of 7, such a team built by Pep Guardiola can hardly be stopped by any team in the world.
Schalke were leading 3-1 against Sporting but they conceded twice in the final thirty minutes yet they didn’t give up on the game and they pushed on until the very last minute to score a goal from the spot and grab all three points.
Dortmund have had a tough start to the League but their performance in the Champions League confirms that they have what it takes to make it to the final stages as they won against all their three opponents.
Leverkusen lost their opening game against Monaco, but they managed to bounce back and defeat both Zenit and Portuguese champions Benfica.
The Germans sent out a big message this week to their opponents that whoever wants to make it to the final will have to get past them and it won’t be easy at all for anyone to face them.
