Bayern Munich – One of the dominant sporting sides in the world today

When it comes to the picture of the dominant sport sides, then there are many that will be remembered through time. From the Boston Celtics during the Bill Russell era, to the success of the New England Patriots. Another has to be the All Blacks in Rugby and could we now be in the midst of another in the shape of Bayern Munich?

The side are the dominant force in Europe and continue to control the German league. They are always tipped up by fans using for virtually all fixtures, which further shows the dominance of the side at present both domestically and in European competition. Bayern Munich have now won a record breaking 30 domestic league titles and this also includes winning the last eight years in succession. It has been a period of dominance and the side now appear to be getting even better.

The improvement has clearly been shown in the Champions league, when they won the title for the first time since 2013 last season. This saw them win every game of the entire competition and clearly show they are the best team in Europe football at present. It saw them beat PSG in the final 1-0, having also previously beaten Barcelona 8-2 in the quarter-finals and Chelsea 7-1 on aggregate in the round of 16. These results all further backing up just how impressive the squad is, and the results have been showing.

This has now continued into the current campaign and Bayern Munich have again made a strong start domestically, as they remain very short odds to again win the Bundesliga title. There is no doubt it will be a major shock were they to fail to again win the title and it is likely to be all about the defence of their Champions league title this season.

Bayern Munich were again made the strong favourites for the Champions league title and their odds have continued to shorten in the competition. They again finished the group stages unbeaten, winning five and drawing one from their six fixtures. This saw them top Group A, with Atletico Madrid also following them through. The side now progress through as the clear team to beat and there is no doubt that they are going to take the world of beating.

If Bayern can again be dominant in the tournament and defend their title, then they would become just the second side in history to do so, with Real Madrid the only other side and they won three in succession at the time. It will be fascinating if Bayern Munich can continue this dominance, as they remain one of the leading sides in the sport today.
