Football Manager 2021 Bayern Munich - 4-2-3-1 Tactic | Team Guide | FM21

Bayern Munich Football Manager 2021 tactic and team guide. Club vision, tactics, key players, youth prospects and potential transfers in and out.


Here is a brief analysis of the Bayern Munich squad, their club structure, relationship any potential managers will have with the board, expectations and possible tactics any FM21 manager can use.

About Bayern Munich


Bayern Munich are a professional football club that ply their trade in the top German football league, the Bundesliga. The club was founded in 1900 and is the most successful club in German football with a record 30 national titles and 20 national cups. 

Overall, Bayern has reached eleven European Cup/UEFA Champions League finals, most recently winning their sixth title in 2020 as part of a continental treble becoming only the second-ever club to do so. 

Bayern has also won one UEFA Cup, one European Cup Winners' Cup, two UEFA Super Cup’s, one FIFA Club World Cup and two Intercontinental Cups, making it one of the most successful European clubs internationally and the only German club to have won both international titles. 

Board Expectations


They are the 4th biggest club in the world in terms of revenue generation and the biggest in German football. They have won the Bundesliga title 8 times in a row since 2013 proving their dominance domestically.

Bayern are the defending Bundesliga & UCL Champions, so expect high board requirements, which are, 

Board Expectations

    1. Win the Bundesliga
    2. Make the Semi-Final of the UEFA Champion’s League
    3. Win the Club World Championship
    4. Win the DFB Pokal

Additionally, you’ll be required to play possession-based football, sign young players for the first team and promote young players who emerge from the club’s youth system, sign players based out of Germany and sign players from direct rivals.

Bayern Munich have a state of the art training facilities and an excellent youth system which will generate constant star players to meet the board’s requirement.

Bayern's Gegenpress 4-2-3-1 Tactic


Bayern are a team that love to high tempo attacking football. So a Gegenpress is the preferred tactic for their squad of players. In tough away games, you can opt for wing play or a fluid counter-attack to make use of the pace out wide.

A 4-2-3-1 is probably the best-suited formation to the available squad of players. This also helps them in controlling possession by recycling it between the 2 central midfielders.

A rough example of what your line-up would look like in a 4-2-3-1 formation is as follows, 

Bayern's Gegenpress 4-2-3-1 Tactic


Manuel Neuer as a sweeper keeper.

David Alaba & Jerome Boateng as the 2 centre backs playing as Ball Playing Defenders.

Benjamin Pavard & Alphonso Davies as a full back and wing-back respectively. You can push Davies further forward and make use of his pace.

Joshua Kimmich & Leon Goretzka as the 2 central midfielders with Thiago playing as the holding playmaker & Goretzka playing as a box to box midfielder.

Leroy Sane & Serge Gnabry as the 2 wingers, with Sane operating as a winger and Gnabry more of an inside forward.

Thomas Muller as the central attacking midfielder in a No:10 role.

Robert Lewandowski as the lone forward in an Advanced Forward role.

The bench is also filled with stars with players like Tolisso, Douglas Costa, and Lucas among the benched players. You can change the formation based on your liking as the players are really versatile.

Key Players


There are a number of stars in the squad with Bayern comfortably being the strongest side in Bundesliga.

    1. Robert Lewandowski 


Robert Lewandowski

Lewandowski is one of the best strikers in FM21. The polish frontman has been remarkable for Bayern and has scored 173 league goals in just 196 games.

    2. Manuel Neuer 


Manuel Neuer

Neuer is the club captain and is regarded as the world's best goalkeeper by many football pundits. He is also very comfortable on the ball and will pick out crucial passes when the need arises, sweeper-keeper prototype.

    3. Thomas Muller 


Thomas Muller

Muller has rediscovered himself under Hansi Flick and has been exceptional for Bayern off late. You can play him as a playmaker or out wide as a Raumdeuter. He will contribute with plenty of important goals and assists.

    4. Joshua Kimmich 


Joshua Kimmich

Kimmich is a very versatile full-back who can play in multiple positions. His ability to pick crosses and is decision making make him stand out from others and is one of the most complete players in FM 21.

Weaknesses


1. The quality of backups for some positions is not the best.

2. The strikers department is relatively weak, with no able backup for Lewandowski. If he is affected by injuries, there could be a shortage of goals.

3. Key stars are ageing and might be impossible to replace them.

Youth Prospects


There are a few exciting young prospects in the ranks who have the potential to be some of the best players in the league. A few examples are,

    1. Alphonso Davies 


Alphonso Davies

Ever since Alphonso Davies made the switch from the MLS, he has been a revelation. His ability to play on all positions on the left side of the pitch and his pace make him an extremely dangerous player and a nightmare for opponents to mark. He will go on to become one of the best full-backs in FM 2021.

    2. Mickael Cuisance 


Mickael Cuisance

The playmaker is highly rated and has an extremely high potential ability in the game. Under the proper guidance, Cuisance will develop into one of the best passers in Football Manager 2021 and is the key to unlocking many defences.

    3. Joshua Zirkzee 


Joshua Zirkzee

Considered by many as one of the crowns of the Bayern academy, Joshua Zirkzee has the potential to become a beastly striker in fm21. He is an able backup and can fill in with goals if and when necessary.

Potential Transfers (in)


Despite Bayern having one of the best squads in the league, these players could be welcome additions to the side.

· Erling Haaland

· Dayot Upameccano

Potential Transfers (Out)


These players may be surplus to requirements at the club or may not be of the expected quality.

· Javi Martinez

· Jerome Boateng

Summary


To summarise, Bayern are easily the best team in the Bundesliga, and some consider them to be the best in the world. The challenge here is to maintain their reputation and go on to dominate European football for years, which might seem like an easy job, but the pressure from the board is making it highly stressful. Not meeting most of your board requirements whilst enduring a losing streak with demoralised squad might just be the trigger for your sacking.
