Return to action
The likelihood is that the Bundesliga will resume later this month and with nine matches left to play, Bayern Munich will look to strengthen their lead at the top of the league table. Bayern currently sit four points above second-placed Borussia Dortmund with RB Leipzig and Borussia Monchengladbach ready to pounce should either of the top-two slip-up in the coming weeks.
With the German top flight set to resume soon, all the teams challenging Bayern have played 25 games thus far with no games in hand. The bookies remain convinced that Bayern will cling onto pole position with most firms going 1/5 odds-on that they finish the campaign top of the pile, however there’s still plenty of time for the chasing pack to close them down with Borussia Dortmund a 5/1 shot to grab the title from under Bayern’s noses.
Current third-placed RB Leipzig certainly aren’t out of contention given that they sit just a single point behind Borussia Dortmund and five adrift of Bayern Munich, the bookies going 10/1 that the East Germans clinch their first ever Bundesliga title.
Borussia Monchengladbach are next in the table although with eight points separating them from Bayern, the bookies have effectively written off their chances of claiming the domestic crown.
Down to the wire
Whatever happens, this season’s Bundesliga is gearing up to become one of the most hotly contested and exciting for many seasons with three different sides in with a decent chance of claiming the German title. Perennial winners Bayern Munich may be odds-on favourites, however free-scoring Dortmund and RB Leipzig will look to take this to the wire with the latter seeming good value at 10/1.
1/5 – Bayern Munich
5/1 – Borussia Dortmund
10/1 – RB Leipzig
100/1 – Borussia Mönchengladbach
100/1 – Bayer Leverkusen
