Practice makes perfect for Bayern

At times it seems like Bayern München retain possession for fun, with their passing appearing effortless as they quell the charge of opponent after opponent.

On average, the Bavarians dominate games with an incredible 63 percent of possession while maintaining an 88 percent pass completion rate. Incredible.

It’s of course not by chance that they rack up those kind of stats, with manager Pep Guardiola a hard task master when it comes to ensuring that his side are well drilled. And judging by the attention paid by the players in a simple training drill it’s no surprise they’re dominating the Bundesliga…

61 passes?! It’s almost hypnotic.
