Entertainment Flick and the difficult decision in the back right
Bavaria's Qatar trip: A "bubble", 12,000 spectators and Barça's record
The Club World Cup officially starts on Wednesday. But it won't get really interesting for FC Bayern until Monday. This is what Munich’s timetable looks like between Berlin, Doha and Bielefeld. © imago images Bayern coach Hansi Flick and the Munich team want to set Barcelona's 2009 record: six titles in one season. On Friday evening, the Flick-Elf will kick off a very intense football week in the Berlin Olympic Stadium.
If everything goes smoothly, Benjamin Pavard increases the options for Hansi Flick before the classic against Borussia Dortmund this week after recovering from corona. However, it is quite possible that the coach in the back right will continue to trust Niklas Süle.
Benjamin Pavard's last appearance so far was at the final of the Club World Cup on February 11 against Tigres UANL from Mexico. The French world champion scored the decisive 1-0 and confirmed his slight upward trend in the previous games after a largely weak season. Four days later, Pavard was on the bench in the 3: 3 against Arminia Bielefeld, the next day he had to quarantine as the fourth Bayern player within a short time after Javi Martinez, Leon Goretzka and Thomas Müller because of a positive COVID-19 test.

But Stefan Effenberg strengthens the back of the triple trainer.
Pavard could now return to the squad. But can he play again immediately? Bouna Sarr did not even begin to replace the regular right-back against Bielefeld, in the last three games Flick chose the trained central defender Niklas Süle as right-back. The national player failed at 1: 2 in Frankfurt in the first half of the game, but did a good job at Lazio Rome (4: 1) and against 1. FC Köln (5: 1). Again and again, Süle pushed on the offensive, which may seem a bit awkward with a giant like him, but was anything but bad.
Pavard should return to his post in the medium term, after all, Flick gave him confidence even in weak phases and never let him down. But why should he change something in the last successful defensive formation against the old rival from Dortmund? Especially since it remains to be seen in what condition Pavard will return from the forced break.
