This week, the Bundesliga 2019/20 will reopen after a postponement period because of Covid-19. To warm up for the much-awaited event, let’s take a look at the No. 1 tournament in Germany through the panorama.
After an unsatisfactory start, Bayern revived strongly under the guidance of coach Hansi Flick. In the last 10 rounds, the Bavarians did not lose a match and won 9 victories. With 55 points earned after 22 rounds, the Gray Lobster now has more than 2 teams ranked behind, Dortmund and Leipzig respectively 4 and 5 points. In round 28, Bayern will welcome Dortmund and most likely this is the decisive battle for the championship.
LEADS OF CHAMPIONS LEAGUE
The battle for Champions League tickets next season is quite hot and unpredictable. The reason is that the gap between the second and Dortmund second-team Leverkusen is only 4 points. Alternating between these two teams is Leipzig and M’Gladbach. Given the current situation, the penultimate round will be worth watching because Dortmund will be a guest of Leipzig, while M’Gladbach will receive Leverkusen at home.
EUROPA LEAGUE PROJECTS
Schalke are in the sixth position to allow them to qualify for the Europa League next season. However, the gap between this team and 10th place is Cologne is only 5 points (37 compared to 32). Standing between Schalke and Cologne are Wolfsburg, Freiburg and Hoffenheim are all expected to participate in the 2020/21 European Cup. As a rule, the 7th team in the Bundesliga 2019/20 can also qualify for the Europa League, but this depends on which club wins the German Cup.
DOWN THE RANKING
Paderborn (16 points) and Werder Bremen (18 points) are the two teams in the most dangerous position due to their poor performance compared to the rest. The situation of Fortuna Dusseldorf (22 points) is less dramatic because they are at least in the right to play relegation play-offs. Right now both Mainz, Augsburg, Hertha Berlin and Eintracht Frankfurt do not have enough scores to feel safe.
UP TO THE CLASS
Arminia Bielefeld (51 points) is full of hope to play in the Bundesliga 2019/20 for the first time since being relegated in 2009. They are currently leading the German Second Division with 6 points more than Stuttgart behind. Hamburg ranked 3rd with 1 point less than Stuttgart. If the current rankings are maintained, they will be promoted to play-off promotion.
THE KING TO THE KIND OF KING MADE
Rookie striker Erling Haaland is impressing when he scored 9 goals / 8 matches for Dortmund in the Bundesliga. However, his achievement is still far behind those of the two top scorers who are Robert Lewandowski (Bayern, 25 goals) and Timo Werner (Leipzig, 21 goals).
