Thomas Tuchel’s Bayern departure timeline can be significantly altered after Lazio tie

Thomas Tuchel was brought in at Bayern Munich last year and he was thought to bring in new, innovative changes. But the German manager has not been successful at all, although he won the Bundesliga last year. His team is currently second in the Bundesliga and may not even win a trophy this year.

Tuchel has already agreed to part ways with the club at the end of the season, similar to Xavi at Barcelona. However, he risks an even earlier exit before the summer if he does not get a result.

Thomas Tuchel faces early sacking depending on Lazio result

Bayern Munich have not been great under Thomas Tuchel, and that was reflected when the decision was made to let him go at the end of the season. However, many German reports suggest that he could be sacked even earlier if the next game’s result does not go favorably.

The German giants will face Lazio in the next game, which will be the second leg of their Round of 16 fixture in the Champions League. They already lost the first game at Lazio with 1 goal behind. If they cannot win the next game, this will mean Bayern will be out of the Champions League early this season.

Sky Germany journalist Florian Plettenberg has said that Tuchel will not be sacked until the Lazio game. If Bayern do not get into the next stage of the UCL, then the 50-year-old will be promptly sacked.

Bayern have no immediate candidate in mind to replace Tuchel right now, and they may be forced to contend with him until the end of the season. They are only thinking about which manager to appoint at the end of the season.

Bayern’s winless run in away games extend to 4

Under the reign of Thomas Tuchel, Bayern have not been performing well at all this season according to their lofty standards. The Bavarians have not lost the Bundesliga title for the last decade, last losing in 2012 to Dortmund. They are at risk of losing that streak this season to Xabi Alonso’s Bayer Leverkusen, being 10 points behind them.

They have not won any of their last 4 away games, with losses against Leverkusen, Lazio, and Bochum while drawing to Freiburg in the last game. As they have already lost the German Super Cup and are also knocked out of the DFB-Pokal, they remain at risk of not winning a single trophy this season.

Thomas Tuchel will have a last chance in the next game against Lazio, and if he does not manage to secure the next round, he may have to pack his bags.
