Bayern Munich feel Robben and Ribery absences ahead of Porto clash

Bayern Munich need to create history if they're to overcome their 3-1 first-leg deficit to FC Porto in their Champions League quarterfinal.
Brian McBride believes Bayern Munich will be able to overcome their Champions League first leg deficit against FC Porto, while Craig Burley favours Porto to advance to the semi-finals.

Whatever the real reason for Pep Guardiola's bust-up with team doctor Hans-Wilhelm Muller-Wohlfahrt -- leading to the latter's departure from the club last week -- there's no question that the Bayern boss is highly frustrated with his team's current injury crisis.

Whether Muller-Wohlfahrt is responsible is another question entirely. But Bayern's injury problems this season have been considerable: One estimate suggests Guardiola's players, collectively, have missed 24 percent of potential "minutes"...

Guardiola and Ancelotti still measured in Champions League, despite success

Bayern Munich need to create history if they're to overcome their 3-1 first-leg deficit to FC Porto in their Champions League quarterfinal.

They met in the past year's Champions League semifinals, but will they get the opportunity to do so again in this year's tournament? Pep Guardiola and Carlo Ancelotti should be two of the competition's untouchables, but the pair could be playing for their very futures in their current jobs, even though we're only at the quarterfinal stage of this year's edition.

In the case of Guardiola, his own tricky situation this week is still clearly influenced by that meeting between his Bayern Munich and...

Bayern Munich's home form gives confidence of comeback versus Porto

Philipp Lahm and Thomas Muller of Bayern Munich remain calm despite going into their Champions League quarterfinal second leg 3-1 down against Porto.

A week is a long time in politics and football.

Before Bayern Munich's shock 3-1 Champions League defeat in Porto, chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge waxed lyrical about coach Pep Guardiola: "Pep doesn't just have a plan A, B or C; he's got the complete alphabet down from top to bottom."

Bayern fans will hope Pep also has a Plan P up his sleeve for Porto. Ahead of what according to Manuel Neuer is the "biggest game of the season," Bayern have serious work to do to keep their treble hopes alive and...

Sebastian Rode rises to the occasion as Bayern ease past Hoffenheim

Sebastian Rode made the most of a rare start to lead Bayern to an easy win.

Bayern Munich moved 13 points clear at the top of the Bundesliga with a comfortable 2-0 victory at Hoffenheim on Saturday.

In a turbulent week that saw the Bavarian giants crash to a Champions League defeat in Porto and then lose the services of world-respected medic Dr. Hans-Wilhelm Muller-Wohlfahrt, Bayern got back on track courtesy of Sebastian Rode's opener and a late own goal to secure the three points.

At times, the game resembled a preseason friendly with Bayern in cruise control ahead...

Bayern will rotate against Hoffenheim to avoid injury ahead of Porto salvage

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti says Pep Guardiola needs to believe they can make a comeback, and beat Porto 2-0 at home.

ESPN FC's Stewart Robson breaks down how Bayern Munich will attack Porto without some of their stars.

Treble-seeking Bayern Munich have an immediate opportunity to put the pain of Porto behind them as they return to Bundesliga action with a tricky trip to Hoffenheim at the weekend.

After 28 games last season, Bayern were already crowned Bundesliga champions and Pep Guardiola began tinkering and rotating with the Champions League in mind. This time around, realistically, with a 10 point lead and just six Bundesliga games remaining, defeat in Hoffenheim is inconsequential and wouldn't seriously affect...

It was hard to top Jurgen Klopp's announcement that he would leave Dortmund in the summer, HSV appointing Bruno Labbadia, and then involuntarily giving away the fact that BVB-bound Thomas Tuchel turned them down on Wednesday. But somehow Bayern Munich managed to do just that later that night. Going down 3-1 at FC Porto in the Champions League -- opponents Philipp Lahm had described as "not the most awkward after the draw" -- was not in the script.

Every defeat for the Bavarians is a big story, but...
