German football officials are hopeful the Bundesliga season will be restarted on May 16th. We take a look at some of the key clubs in the chase for the championship, places in European competitions for next season, and those fighting to avoid relegation.
Bayern Munich are basically the Yankees of the Bundesliga. Seeking their 30th title this season, they’ve also won five European Cups, and some of the best players in the history of the sport have dressed for The Bavarians: From Oliver Kahn to Manuel Neuer in goal, and legends like Lothar Matthäus to Robert Lewandowski today. They are the standard of German fussball and have been for decades, but are in a battle for domestic glory in 2020.
Place in table
1st, 55 points
Robert Lewandowski is one of the best strikers in Europe today. The Polish international has 25 goals in 23 club appearances this season, and is one of the most feared players in the Bundesliga. Manuel Neuer might be the best goalkeeper that’s ever lived and he’s won everything there is to win, including six-straight Bundesliga’s for Bayern. Kimmich plays a withdrawn role, but has starred in four straight league winning campaigns for the European giants.
As the season returns
The match vs. Borussia Dortmund might end up being one of the most watched and bet on sporting events in the history of Germany. With Dortmund just four points behind and within grasp of their dominating rivals this late in the campaign, it will be one of the most anticipated football matches worldwide in a long time.
Bayern are -500 to retain their title right now, but how will they respond without one of the largest supporters sections in Europe behind them?
