Following a 1-0 victory away to Werder Bremen, Bayern Munich successfully secured their place as Bundesliga champions for the eighth time in a row. The league title may be decided but the battle for European spots rages on as teams fight it out to grab the last few remaining points that could make the difference between a season of success or failure.
Having fallen apart by conceding two late goals and drawing their fixture against Fortuna Düsseldorf last Wednesday, RB Leipzig lost the chance to capitalise on the failings of the teams around them. The fixture list has, however, given RB Leipzig a great chance to directly fight Borussia Dortmund for the second-place spot. Three points down and level on goal difference, the Red Bulls will look to their Chelsea-bound German talisman, Timo Werner, to keep his focus and end his time at the club on a high.
BVB are left looking over their shoulders following their unexpected midweek 2-0 loss to Mainz at Signal Iduna Park. Although short on time, Lucien Favre must ensure his team recovers both mentally and physically for a difficult test at the Red Bull Arena. There’s not much to split the sides in the table, or in their matchups this season; the last fixture between Dortmund and RB Leipzig ended in a 3-3 draw. Borussia Dortmund’s young prodigies will need to be firing on all fronts if they want to secure their runners-up spot in the Bundesliga.
Can Bozdogan’s midweek red card against Eintracht Frankfurt saw Schalke’s hopes of a comeback fade as they found themselves playing out their 11th loss of the season. Schalke now find themselves with nothing to play for, their hopes for European qualification dead in the water. Should they to continue to lose, Schalke could finish as low as 15th in the table. Manager David Wagner will demand his team show some improvement and achieve a better result than the 1-1 draw from when the sides met earlier in the season.
A 3-0 loss to Borussia Monchengladbach ended Wolfsburg’s chance to break away from the pack hunting Europa League places. With Hoffenheim below them but level on points, and Freiburg breathing down their neck just one point away in eighth place, Die Wölfe must return to winning ways when they travel to the Veltins-Arena this Saturday. With qualification to European competition hanging in the balance, all eyes will be on Wolfsburg’s top scorer Wout Weghorst to make the difference this weekend.
Bayern Munich’s campaign to wrap up their 30th Bundesliga title was accomplished in great fashion last Tuesday. As Robert Lewandowski banged-away his 31st goal of the season in a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Werder Bremen, the Bavarians etched themselves into history as eight-time consecutive winners. Bayern Munich now welcome Freiburg to their home stadium, keen to ensure their domination of the league continues to the end of the season.
A 2-1 victory, courtesy of a 71st-minute strike from German forward Nils Petersen, gave SC Freiburg a much-needed victory last Friday. Positioned in eighth place and well within striking distance of the Europa League spots, SC Freiburg will need to do it the hard way and beat the newly-crowned champions on their home ground for a chance to leap into sixth place.
