The road to winning bets is wide open. Can you make the right predictions? Let’s go over the league and the most important teams to see if we can gain an edge for smarter bets!

The Bundesliga

Germany’s top club football flight is rife with powerhouses that always bring their best game, as well as strong contenders that can make winning a daunting task for the giants of the competition. The Bundesliga is comprised of 18 teams in total, of which 2 will relegate at the end of the season. The battle for the first four places will be fierce, as they entitle teams to participate in the Champions League the following season. Likewise, places 5 through 7 are important for contenders with the ambition to enter the Europa League in 2021. Let’s sum up some statistics from last season to get an idea of who’s who in the Bundesliga:

  • Current champion: Bayern Munich
  • 2019-2020 top scorer: Robert Lewandowski for Bayern Munich (34)
  • Relegated teams: Fortuna Düsseldorf and SC Paderborn
  • Goals scored: 982 (3.21 per match)
  • Longest winning run: Bayern Munich (13 games)
  • Longest unbeaten run: Bayern Munich (20 games)
  • Longest winless run: Schalke 04 (16 games)
  • Longest losing run: Werder Bremen, Hertha Berlin, SC Paderborn, Eintracht Frankfurt (5 games)

Bayern Munich

The Rekordmeister Bayern Munich added another Bundesliga title to its record. Their 2019-2020 championship title was its 30th title in its 120-year history. Die Bayern have won every season since 2013 – that’s a remarkable 8 in a row. There is little to be certain right before the start of this season, but we can expect that Bayern Munich will be the team that all other outfits will chase vigorously.

Borussia Dortmund

Tired of being regarded as an eternal second-placed team, Borussia Dortmund has seriously improved its squad in recent years in a bid to break the solitary reign of Bayern Munich. Despite its efforts, the black-and-yellow side ended second last season with 69 points – 14 points off of champion Munich. This year around, Dortmund will be hoping for popular younglings like Jadon Sancho and Erling Haaland to pay off big time.

RB Leipzig

RB Leipzig has been working hard to keep up with its competitors and has made great strides in just a few years in that aspect. The Red Bulls finished third last season, with only 3 points away from Dortmund. If anything, Leipzig will be looking for a fierce start to make a point of its ambitions. Not only Dortmund should be worried: RB Leipzig has Bayern Munich in its crosshairs too, thanks to rising stars like Dayot Upamecano.
