After turbulent days, FC Bayern Munich wants to win again in the Champions League today (6:55 p.m. / Sky). The German soccer champions are aiming for success at AEK Athens on the way to the second round. In the long-distance duel with the team from Ajax Amsterdam with the same number of points, Bayern would like to take the lead in Group E. These are currently held by the Dutch, who play against Benfica Lisbon.

After the victory on Saturday in the Bundesliga at VfL Wolfsburg, a success in Greece should ensure a little more calm. Last week’s press conference with media scolding caused a lot of excitement and criticism. The team did that after "character" well done in Wolfsburg and hopefully continue in Athens, said CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge. Injured Franck Ribéry is absent from Athens.

Athens (AP) – Bundesliga club FC Bayern Munich celebrated their second victory in the Champions League in the third group game. Coach Niko Kovac’s team won 2-0 (0-0) at the pointless bottom of the table AEK Athens on Tuesday evening, thus taking another step towards the round of 16. After a weak first half, Javi Martinez (61st minute) and Robert Lewandowski (63rd) scored the goals for the German record champions in front of 56,865 spectators in the Olympic Stadium.123helpme.me Three days after the 3-1 in the Bundesliga at VfL Wolfsburg, the Munich team found their way back to success in the premier class. In addition, they remained undefeated in a duel with Greek teams.

Karl-Heinz Rummenigge was initially satisfied with his nocturnal address. Munich’s 2-0 success at AEK Athens was the next success towards normality after turbulent days. "I think that was an important step towards our goal of qualifying for the round of 16"said the CEO. "We now have seven points and we have the second leg in Munich against AEK Athens in a few weeks, so we can look to the future with optimism."

With two wins and a draw after three games, FC Bayern are again leaders. At least in the Champions League. The German record champions have to share first place with Ajax Amsterdam, who won 1-0 against Benfica Lisbon.

"Especially after the period of weakness, as players we all decided to really show a different face and to win the games. It doesn’t stop now, we want to continue and expand the series a bit", said captain Manuel Neuer after the success on Tuesday evening in front of 56,865 spectators in the Olympic Stadium in Athens. The Bundesliga continues in Mainz on Saturday.

Thanks to the goals of Javi Martínez (61st minute) and Robert Lewandowski (63rd), the Munich team around the strong Serge Gnabry continued the upward trend they started with the 3-1 win against Wolfsburg in front of 56,865 spectators. "That’s the nice thing about the world of football: if you lose, everything is bad, then you have no friends. And when you win, everything becomes calmer again. The more games you win, the quieter it gets. We just have to focus on that"said Arjen Robben.

For the first time in Athens, coach Niko Kovac did without a real rotation. Only the ailing David Alaba stayed outside, otherwise the coach trusted the Wolfsburg winners. "I could have brought anyone. Only we in the coaching team were of the opinion that those who played against Wolfsburg did exceptionally well. So we saw no reason to switch"said the 47-year-old. "That doesn’t mean that we will play the whole season in this formation."

That would certainly upset co-captain Thomas Müller. The national player sat on the bench for the third time in a row in the club and DFB team at kick-off. "It’s actually more important, especially for us as a team, that we talk about the games. It doesn’t help us if you open any discussion groups here"said Müller. Especially not after victories.

Coach Niko Kovac does not rotate in the Champions League game of FC Bayern Munich at AEK Athens. With the exception of David Alaba, the coach sent the same starting line-up on Tuesday evening as they did in the 3-1 win in the Bundesliga against VfL Wolfsburg. The national soccer players Thomas Müller and Jérôme Boateng are again not in the starting line-up. Rafinha plays for Alaba, who has recently been slightly battered and sits on the bench.

On the offensive, Kovac offers striker Robert Lewandowski, veteran Arjen Robben and U21 European champion Serge Gnabry. Thiago, Javi Martinez and the Colombian James Rodriguez are also in the starting line-up. The defense consists of Rafinha Mats Hummels, Niklas Süle and Joshua Kimmich. The Frenchman Franck Ribéry is not in the squad for the game because of a vertebral blockage.

After the 71:67 ​​first leg success, the Upper Franconians lost the second leg against last year’s winner AEK Athens with 67:69 (32:36), but after adding the two results they narrowly prevailed. Tyrese Rice once again made sure of that, scoring the decisive points eight seconds before the end. In total, the development player contributed 25 points, the most striking player at AEK was Vince Hunter with 19 points and eleven rebounds.

In front of the impressive crowd of 17,000 spectators in the Athens Olympic Hall, Bamberg kept up well in the first half despite poor throwing rates. Coach Federico Perego’s team played offensively ineffectively even after the break, but still managed the game evenly. Seven minutes before the end, AEK was able to pull away to twelve points, but Bryce Taylor made the game exciting again with three successful three-point throws in a row. Shortly before the end, it was Rice who made the move into the Final Four from May 3rd to 5th.

VfL Wolfsburg can tackle their crucial Europa League qualifier at AEK Athens with their best striker Wout Weghorst.

Coach Oliver Glasner pulls his captain Josuha Guilavogui back from defensive midfield to defense. Left-back Jerome Roussillon is playing on the right-hand side of defense, where Brazilian William and Swiss Kevin Mbabu are both injured.
