Wednesday, July 17th 2013. | Breaking News, Football, Sport

Musjack.com – Last season was clearly a memorable season for Bayern Munich after ending the 2012-2013 season with a treble achievement. Triumphed in the Champions League, and dominate in the domestic competition.

The success of last season inevitably create hope and despair increased support Bayern this season. Although left coach Jupp Heynckes, Bayern success but brought no less phenomenal coach, Josep ‘Pep’ Guardiola.

With so many gifts and talents that are in the squad, including Mario Gotze and Thiago Alcantara who joined this season, Pep Guardiola has obviously been getting a ‘legacy’ titanic to sail the length of the season.

But many do not dare to predict Die Roten will wear what formation to repeat the success of last season with a number of quality and talent he has in the squad.

Here are four formations that may be used by Pep Guardiola this season.

1. 4-4-1-1 formation (tactics last season)

This formation is one of the most commonly used formation last season. But this time the change occurred in the center back position where Dante will duet with Javi Martinez, while the two wing-back Philipp Lahm occupied and David Alaba.

For positions in midfield, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Thiago will be the axis of attack. While Ribery and Gotze will occupy the wings.

For the front lines, Pep could put Thimas Muller as the lone striker and put behind Toni Kross.

This is a classic formation with two attacking midfielders Barcelona will be the center of the game. With this formation, Guardiola could build a new identity for Bayern Munich.

For the back line will be occupied by the same player as before, Lahm-Dante-Martinez-Alaba. Bastian Schweinsteiger anchor position, while Thiago will be pushed forward to accompany Toni Kross as facilitating the circulation of the ball.

But the weakness of this formation may lie in the ability of Basti when the maximum was only used as an anchor. But this can be circumvented by placing Javi Martinez in the position and change the composition of the back line. While Ribery could transform into False 9 supported Muller and Gotze or even Arjen Robben.

It is a formation used Guardiola at Barcelona last season as manager, but was not as successful as 4-1-2-3 formation. But with so many players with exceptional talent in Bayern, this formation could be an alternative to use.

Defense may be a little less familiar with putting Lahm as one of three center backs with Dante and Boateng. But the defense will get ‘help’ from Javi Martinez, who finished in front of the defense. While Thiago and Schweinsteiger would be a double pivot in midfield.

Three attackers positions exist on the figure-Ribery-Mandzukic Gotze will support Toni Kross behind them.
