FC Bayern München has a chance to put a couple of poor Bundesliga results behind them when they face Ajax Amsterdam in Tuesday’s UEFA Champions League clash at the Allianz Arena. Robert Lewandowski has started the season in prolific form as expected, with eight goals in eight appearances in all competitions. However, the Poland star has not scored in his last two Bundesliga matches and will no doubt be eager to rectify that against Ajax on home soil. Creative attacking midfielder Dusan Tadic has been very productive with the Eredivisie giants since his switch from Southampton ahead of 2018/19. The 29-year-old has contributed a number of assists and has chipped in with seven goals in 13 appearances. He will want to impress against Bayern. The Bavarians come into the contest in uncharacteristically poor form after a draw at home to Augsburg as well as a 2-0 defeat away to Hertha Berlin in Germany’s top-flight. However, they opened their Group E campaign with a 2-0 victory over Benfica on 19 September and will no doubt feel confident of bouncing back against De Godenzonen. Ahead of the clash, manager Niko Kovac said: “I’m glad a great match awaits us, with two great clubs that dominated European football in the 70s, with fantastic players. “I wish and hope for a reaction, not only for the match against Ajax but also for the match next weekend.”
