It was a mixed bag of results for 1860 Munich in January, starting with a 3-2 victory including a brace from Lisandru Tramoni in his most impressive performance for 1860 Munich so far in his career. An early lead against RB Leipzig was run down quickly in a heavy loss at home against the league leaders.
Musa Barrow led his side to victory, scoring a hattrick in the big 4-2 win against Fortuna Dusseldorf before finishing the month against VfB Stuttgart, going down by a two goal margin.
RB Leipzig currently share the top of the table with Bayer Leverkusen while Bayern Munich find themselves only two points behind the leaders. At the bottom of the table, Union Berlin and Hannover 96 both put together a good sequence of results to close the distance on the teams above them.
Player Of The Month
Scoring five goals in four games including a hattrick against Fortuna Dusseldorf, Musa Barrow has found his feet at his new club and is reaping the benefits.
After his form in January, the Gambian international has moved into the top five goal scorers in the Bundesliga and is expected to be on the radar of many European clubs in the off-season.
Recovering from a knee ligament issue, Robin Hack will miss the DFB-Pokal fixture against Hertha Berlin but may return for the match against VfL Wolfsburg.
Starting with the DFB-Pokal third round fixture against Hertha Berlin, 1860 Munich face three opponents currently in the bottom half of the table in VfL Wolfsburg, SC Freiburg and FC Koln with a tough fixture away from home against fourth placed Borussia Monchengladbach.
