Bundesliga winner: Bayern backed to ‘continue dominance in German top-flight’



The Bundesliga has returned, and is all set for a hugely exciting end to the campaign.

After a break due to the coronavirus pandemic, the action was brought back last weekend. Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund picked up wins against Union Berlin and Schalke respectively.

The champions simply picked up from where they left off, while their rivals may just have taken their performances up another notch.

But it’s Bayern who have been dominating the league for many years now. Their reign could, however, soon come to an end. The Bavarians could make it eight Bundesliga titles in a row later this year.

But they certainly won’t have it easy. Challenges from the likes of Dortmund and RB Leipzig won’t be easy to brush off. Borussia Monchengladbach and Bayer Leverkusen are also in the running.

After one weekend back, Bayern lead the way on 58 points. Their rivals Dortmund sit second on 54, with Monchengladbach just behind on 52. 

In an extremely close campaign, Leipzig are fourth on 51, one point ahead of Leverkusen in fifth. 

But it’s Bayern who have been leading the pack in more ways than one this campaign. Their 75 goals is a league-high, with their 26 goals conceded a league-low.

Coach Hansi Flick has been working wonders, with his side hitting 50 goals in his 16 matches in charge. At an average of 3.1 goals per game, it’s the best ratio of any head coach in the league’s history.

Dortmund aren’t far off in the goals department with 72, but it’s their defence that have been letting them down. Their 33 goals conceded is the worst record within the top six.

The champions can be backed at 2/9 to defend their title this season.

Dortmund are currently 5/1 to catch them, with Leipzig available at 25/1. Monchengladbach and Leverkusen are 50/1 and 66/1 respectively.

And if their title challenge falls short, the likes of Leipzig, Monchengladbach and Leverkusen will all be pushing for that crucial top four spot.

It’s currently 1/20 for Leipzig to clinch a place in the top four this season. Monchengladbach are 2/5, with Leverkusen currently 11/8.

Outsiders include Wolfsburg and Schalke at 66/1 and 200/1 respectively. Freiburg have been given odds of 250/1, with Hoffenheim available at 500/1.

Bayern boast 29 league titles, with FC Nurnberg their nearest competitors with nine. Dortmund sit third with eight, while their rivals Schalke have seven.

Flick’s side host Frankfurt this weekend, with Lucien Favre’s men visiting Wolfsburg. Monchengladbach host Leverkusen, with Leipzig travelling to Mainz.

Elsewhere, Schalke welcome Augsburg, Paderborn meet Hoffenheim and Freiburg host Werder Bremen. Cologne’s fixture with Dusseldorf completes the action, which begins with a Berlin derby on Friday night between Hertha and Union.
