Badstuber is good and only getting more experienced. He's also great at distributing from the back. I don't know who you have been watching. Dante was rated 2nd best defender in the Bundesliga behind Hummels.
Okay. But let's just assume I concede that point.
Bayern's midfield shits all over Chelsea's, and United's midfield and we all saw what a midfield even without Schweinsteiger in one game and with an injured Schweinsteiger in the other did to Real's midfield. And it only got stronger.
You also forget that Bayern is a pretty young team in a lot of positions. Younger than Man City I think who you give the "more experience" bonus.
"outside chance" is big reach
