Bundesliga winner and top scorer: Lewandowski backed to ‘fire Bayern to league title’

After another eventful weekend last time out in Germany’s top flight, it’s Borussia Monchengladbach who lead the Bundesliga table after 14 games.

Their latest win came courtesy of a 92nd-minute winner over champions Bayern, helping them to a one point gap over second-place RB Leipzig. The loss for Bayern ensured they slipped to seventh in the table, with just seven wins to their name.

It was also a positive weekend for Borussia Dortmund, who moved to third after beating Fortuna Dusseldorf 5-0. They sit a point above the trio of Schalke, Freiburg and Bayer Leverkusen, who are all tied on 25 points.

It’s already been a tumultuous season at the top and the bottom. And despite falling down the table, Bayern Munich are currently favourites to win the league at 8/13.

It was Bayern who secured the bragging rights in Germany last time out, clinching the seemingly impossible to come back from a huge deficit to edge out Dortmund by two points to win the title.

Dortmund will therefore be out for revenge this time around, but they already find themselves at 10/1. They sit behind RB Leipzig at 7/2. League leaders Monchengladbach are currently 12/1 to end the season in top spot.

RB Leipzig clinched third last season, with Bayer Leverkusen securing fourth. And it was Monchengladbach who narrowly overcame Wolfsburg on goal difference to take fifth.

Leverkusen are currently 40/1 to cause a major shock and lift the trophy.

At the other end, Paderborn are favourites to go down at 1/8. Dusseldorf and FC Koln are 11/8 and 7/4 respectively to face relegation.

Bayern’s Robert Lewandowski clinched the top scorer award last season thanks to his 22 goals. The Poland international already has 16 this time around.

The Bayern striker is 3/19 to finish the campaign as the league’s top scorer once again.

Timo Werner has 15 to his name, and is currently 5/1 to steal Lewandowski’s crown come the end of the season.

Dortmund’s Paco Alcacer hit 18 in the last campaign, and is currently 66/1 to be the league’s best striker this time around. He’s joined by Dusseldorf’s Rouwen Hennings at 66/1, with the 32-year-old on 10 goals for the campaign.

Marco Reus and Jadon Sancho have eight and seven league goals this season after also impressing in front of goal in the 2018/19 campaign. Reus is currently 100/1 to somehow come out on top ahead of Lewandowski this season, with Sancho available at 125/1.

Bayern did the unthinkable to turn things around last season. They will need a similar miracle if they are to achieve the same feat once again.
