THE Bavarian Champions have been bossing the German League for years now and it seems that this historic golden era is far from the end. However, is that really true? How’s it possible a team goes eight years in a row winning the domestic league when you’ve got the likes of Borussia Dortmund, Schalke 04, and the emerging RB Leipzig?
Even after sacking Croatian manager Niko Kovac in the middle of the season, the Bavarians could put themselves together and restore the order. Under the guidance of Hansi Flick, not only did they win almost everything but also unquestionably played the best football in Europe.
As for this new season, the Bavarians will have to deal with some departures. Philippe Coutinho went back to Barcelona, as Dutch manager Ronaldo Koeman said he would count on the Brazilian midfielder’s services. They also lost another loanee in Odriozola, who went back to Zinedine Zidane’s Real Madrid. Last but not least, Hansi Flick won’t count on his maestro, Thiago Alcantara, who joined the English Champions Liverpool in search of something new in his career.
Even so, odds are showing that Bayern is seen as the favorites in the title run once again. It should be a good thing to test your luck and give online betting a try. There are tons of bookies in the Philippines and you can even do online betting with paytm and other payment methods.
The 2020/2021 season of the Bundesliga kicked off with the Bavarians grabbing a demolishing 8-0 win over Schalke. Led by Hansi Flick, the Bavarians who won the treble – German Bundesliga, German Cup, and the UEFA Champions League is set to go head and shoulders above the other Bundesliga teams once more.
There are a few clubs who could dethrone Bayern Munich though. We’ll list them in a New York minute.
1 – Borussia Dortmund
The Yellow & Black have been splashing the cash over the last seasons in order to build a solid squad. Commanded by Swiss coach Lucien Favre, Borussia Dortmund signed the likes of Reinier, Jude Bellingham and alongside the pre-existing overall strong squad, these two young names are certainly a gas up.
Of course, the departure of Achraf Hakimi will be a hard blow for the German runners-up, and the Moroccan full-back has become a fundamental piece of the team thanks to his speed and ability to supply balls to the team’s attackers.
With that said, even with the departure of a key player, the BVB made up for bringing in fresh names and appears as the first power to end the Bayern Munich hegemonic era. But we must not forget teams like RB Leipzig, Bayer Leverkusen, or Borussia Monchengladbach, so we are going to take a look at the possibilities of each of them when it comes to fighting for the Bundesliga.
2 – RB Leipzig
The 2019/20 season of RB Leipzig could be considered very successful since the Red Bullers have achieved a new milestone in the UEFA Champions League reaching the semifinals of the top European competition. Their European path had Tottenham and Atletico Madrid in the knockout stages of the European Cup but ended up falling short against PSG.
Repeating this feat will be a complicated task, since RB Leipzig’s top star, Timo Werner, went to the Premier League to join Chelsea. It was actually sad for Werner himself, as he didn’t even wait up until the end of the UCL to move out. Maybe he didn’t really believe Leipzig could make it to the semifinals but the fact is that he definitely missed out on something big.
Leipzig, on the other hand, will have to rely on Dani Olmo to do the Werner role.
If everything goes as expected, the Red Bullers are in third place to dethrone the Bavarian Champions. However, another UCL spot wouldn’t be that bad for them, since they will have to face the competition of the likes of Bayer Leverkusen and Monchengladbach in order to thrive in the Bundesliga once again.
3 – Bayer Leverkusen
Bayer Leverkusen is set to be the third Bundesliga force who could be dethroning the current Bundesliga champions. The team from the BayArena has never been the same since that year where they made it to lots of finals – including the UEFA Champions League – but ended up in misery once again.
For this season, things may repeat itself and Bayer Leverkusen fans would be happy with a UEFA Champions League spot. Another fact that reinforces this thesis is that they lost their main man, Kai Havertz, who followed Timo Werner’s steps and joined Chelsea to try to improve under the guidance of Frank Lampard.
What makes them be the third force is solely the fact that besides Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig, there aren’t many forces in the Bundesliga and that’s huge.
That was our top-3 list for clubs who could be breaking Bayern Munich’s positive streak in the German Bundesliga. Of course that Football is unpredictable and even Union Berlin could live a Leicester City fairytale and lift the German League, but as for now, these are the top three clubs who have shown the best football in order to do so.
