Over the years, the Bundesliga has vastly grown in popularity across the world and has seen some of the most talented footballers make their way to numerous different championships and leagues. But with the sport only just returning to our screens, the question remains. Which team should you be rooting for this season? In this article, we will be looking into which teams are performing better than others and what makes each one of them great.
The Top 6
When looking into the top 6 teams in the Bundesliga at this time, the competition is well and truly on. With the resumption of the season in May, the thrill of a live football game has been well received by people not only in Germany but all over the world. With more and more of us tuning in to watch these games either online or on TV, it is the return of live sports behind closed doors that have helped to lift the hopes of the nation at this time. Below, we have compiled a list of the top 6 tables in the league thus far:
This team are heading for their 8th consecutive title, currently sitting at the top of the table with 70 points thus far in the league, Bayern Munich are on track to make huge changes at this time. With a victory of 5-0 in their game on the 30 May and 4-2 win on 6 June, they are only set to expand their league points against the other teams as the games continue. As a result, this then makes Bayern Munich the bookies favourite to win the league, with several sporting fans already betting on Munich to take home the title this year.
This team is currently 2nd place on the table and have seen a huge amount of success in the past few games that they have played. With several amazing results in their most recent games and a number of them left in the season, this team could be in with a chance of narrowing the gap or winning the league should Munich’s luck suddenly change. This is a team that has a lot of potential to get close to winning this league or come out all guns blazing in 2021.
The team that is currently third in the league is Leipzig and they are currently sitting at a total of 59 points in a league that’s still all to play for. With more games to come and a winning streak for the club, they are slowly beginning to close the gap between third and second place. This could make for an interesting race to the final should they continue at the rate that they are.
As one of the most fun and active clubs in the league on social media, this club is arguably one of the most popular out there. With a total of five Bundesliga wins, two UEFA cup wins and a successful campaign to reach the European cup final, this is by far one of the best teams in the league at this time. Part of what makes them great is the chance for fans to have cardboard cutouts of themselves in the stand for just €19. This is part of what makes the team one of the favourites in terms of fan engagement.
Sitting 5th in the table, Bayer Leverkusen is a team that is still very high up in the league table, but with 56 points, joint with Monchengladbach, it is still all to play for. As the matches continue to be played behind closed doors, we are sure to see a huge shakeup in the league standings as each team continues to up their game and narrow the margins between each team.
The final team in the top six is Wolfsburg. They have had a very successful past few matches seeing themselves slowly moving up the table as the league progresses, however with the ever-tightening margins between the places in the table, they could see themselves falling back down one or two places. With two points separating both Wolfsburg and Hoffenheim, this is almost too close to call.
With this in mind, who you choose to support is completely up to you. With so many amazing teams for you to choose from, you will not go wrong with any of these teams, but remember, choosing the team that is winning at the time, may not work out in later seasons.
