German soccer powerhouse Bayern Munich made official what was long expected once the Bundesliga returned to competitive action. The squad beat Werder Bremen 1-0 on Tuesday thanks to a goal from league leader Robert Lewandowski in the 43rd minute.
It’s the eight-straight championship of Germany for the giants, with the league continuing to be a fait accompli until someone can find a way to break through. Across all competitions, they are undefeated since December 7th of last year with a record of 21-1-0.
It’s been yet another incredible season, with Polish striker Robert Lewandowski leading the squad with 45 goals across all competitions, including 30 in the Bundesliga. It’s also the eight-straight title for Manuel Neuer in goal, as the #1 remains the standard in the crease across the planet.
What’s left for Bayern now is a second leg against Chelsea in the UEFA Champions League, with the chance to reclaim the trophy they last claimed in 2013. They lead 3-0 after one leg, and should easily get through to the last eight in Lisbon. Also there is the domestic cup, the DFB-Pokal, in which they’ll play Bayern Leverkusen on July 4th with a chance at a treble at the Olympiastadion.
But 2020 in German soccer, it’s the same as it ever was.
