How The Bundesliga Table Could Turn Out…

The Bundesliga is officially heading into the business end of the season, with more at stake now, than ever before. Borussia Dortmund trail first placed Bayern by a mere point, which seems like it came from the recent stalemate with 'Der Klassiker.' Union Berlin is in cruise control occupying the third spot, with RB Leipzig and Freiburg making up the fourth, and fifth spots respectively. As it stands, statistically no other team in the league can creep into the top 5. It is very tight at the top, ‘’tight like a can of sardines’ says Kres Harrington on the latest episode of the Bundesliga Connection. Bayern will be aiming to protect what historically is theirs. Considering that the Bavarian giants have been booted out of all knockout competitions, they will be doing everything in their power to secure an 11th straight league title. They showed that they mean business this past weekend when they put 6 goals past Schalke. Thomas Touched praised his team after the match but also suggested to not get carried away with the euphoria at hand. Dortmund are itching to reclaim the title, and they showed their fighting straight, beating Borrusia Monchengladbach 5-2.

Match-day 33 brings with it battles like no other, RB Leipzig will be looking to hold down Bayern Munich once again, and with Dortmund traveling to the WWK Arena, they will be hoping to claim all 3 points against Augsburg. Bayern is aware of the strengths behind Marco Rose and his team; they will also be aware of the magnitude of this match and how important it is to clinch the 3 points at stake. Historically, the Bundesliga is most exciting towards the end of the season and with the relegation spots constantly changing, this season is no different!

On the latest episode of the Bundesliga Connection, DW Sports correspondent and German football expert Kres Harrington breaks down the league standings from top to bottom. Kres explains what is at stake for the top 5 teams, and suggests the bottom half of the table will change without question. Kres speaks about the UEFA Europa League semi-final and suggests only a handful of teams stand a chance to snatch European football next season.
