Race for the Bundesliga title

Bayern Munich v Borussia Dortmund

Bayern Munich entered the current campaign as not only the defending champions but strong favourites to again win the title, which would be their 28th to date. They have won it for the last six seasons, so it would come as a minor surprise were they to not do so again. However they made a very poor start to the season, that saw rivals Borussia Dortmund gain a commanding lead. Bayern have now made a resurgence and are level on points with Dortmund, meaning they are strong favourites at Pokerstars casino to go on and defend their title. So what are some of the key remaining fixtures for each side as we move into the latter stages of the season?

Bayern v Dortmund
6th April

he most important remaining game in regards the Bundesliga title as Dortmund travel to face off against Bayern. This is a six point game and could yet decide the title. This will be key for the season, as a victory for either side will give them the momentum moving forward for the remaining games of the season. This is always a very close encounter between the two sides, and it was a similar scenario when they faced off back in November. This resulted in a 3-2 victory for Dortmund as they continued their impressive home form. However it is little doubt that Bayern arrive in much better form, and with them being at home they will be confident they can take the three points.

RB Leipzig v Bayern
11th May

Another extremely important game for Bayern in the remainder of the season, is the away trip to RB Leipzig. Leipzig have been very impressive this season and are favourites to finish in third spot. They are a very tough team to beat and have a solid home record. This is without a doubt going to be the toughest test remaining for Bayern, in which three points could seal them the title. The previous encounter between the two sides finished 1-0 to Bayern following a late winner from Ribery.

Monchengladbach v Dortmund
18th May

Dortmund face the daunting task of an away trip to Monchengladbach to finish off the season and as it continues to be in the balance, this could yet be of major importance and a must win game. Monchengladbach are another side who are having a strong season and look likely to seal a top four finish. This game could therefore also have major importance for themselves. The previous encounter between the two sides was a very close game as Dortmund took home the three points following a 2-1 victory.
