The Bundesliga seems to be taking a step forward in the world, due to the affectation of COVID-19, its tournament will be the first of the main leagues in the world to start, of course, with a series of restrictive measures that will make this a different season end. Let’s see the state of the First Division of German Football so that you can place your bets according to their Bundesliga odds.
Restart of the Bundesliga Season 2020
The fight for leadership
As has been a constant in recent years in German football, Bayern Munich is the leader of the tournament, however, this season things have not been as easy as in the past.
Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig, have been a real stone in the shoe this season for the aspirations of Bayern Munich, which has not managed to take a broad advantage allowing it to be champion as in other seasons.
For this start we must remember that the Bundesliga tournament will come into play on the 26th, with eight matches still in dispute for a total of 24 points to be played. This is undoubtedly key, considering that Bayern Munich has a total of 55 points, Borussia Dortmund is second with 51, while RB Leipzig is third with 50.
There are 24 points in dispute and four the difference with his closest follower, something that clearly will add flavor to this start of the tournament, in addition to the fact that the game between Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund remains to be played on the 29th, which could set the course for the championship.
For this start of the Bundesliga these positions are red hot, we already reported that the distance between third place and the first is five points. Borussia Monchengladbach who is fourth is six points from the lead, while Bayern Leverkusen separates it eight points to dethrone Munich.
So no one can celebrate absolutely anything yet.
The Fight for European Champions League and Europa League Positions
We know that the European level bases its success on the amount of things you can achieve in a season, as a result of the position you occupy in the table.
That said, in addition to the title, it is at stake to qualify for the next Champions League, as well as the Europa League, two renowned tournaments that make tournaments on the old continent heart-stopping until the end date.
In Germany, from first to fourth place, they pass directly to the group stage of the Champions League, while fifth place immediately reaches the group stage of the Europa League.
Sixth place in the Bundesliga gives him the chance to play in the qualifying round for the Europa League, in search of a place in the group stage of the tournament.
Currently, Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, RB Leipzig and Borussia Monchengladbach are accessing the Champions League, while Bayern Leverkusen would have the Europa League ticket, in addition to Schalke 04, would be playing in the qualifying round.
But, not everything is said for these teams, the first five places seem that they will have no problems accessing European positions, however, the point difference is minimal, that entering this final stretch of the championship without rhythm can be detrimental.
The situation is different for Schalke 04, which has 37 units in the championship, is 10 points away from fifth place, but looks askance at three teams that are two points away.
Wolfsburg (36), SC Freiburg (36) and Hoffenheim (35) are the three teams that threaten the European dream of Schalke, who can not lower their guard at any time, if they do not want to see the end of the championship sadly.
These ingredients, added to the fact that it will be the first league in importance in Europe to start, will make us fill ourselves with adrenaline, I am sure that we will live with passion a highly competitive tournament, which is closed and defined a lot in these remaining eight dates.
The descent to the 2. Bundesliga is almost defined
The German tournament reserves for its start an iron fight to define the three teams that will be part of the second division next season.
For this tournament, Dusseldorf (22), Werder Bremen (18) and Paderborn (16) are at the moment the worst teams in Germany, winning the ticket to play next season in the second division at the moment.
Eintracht Frankfurt (28), Herta Berlin (28), Augsburg (27), Mainz (26) still cannot close the possibility that the descent is knocking on their doorstep. Six points separate the twelfth from the sixteenth place which gives a direct place to the second division.
The competition is tight both at the top and the bottom of the table, the Bundesliga will give us the chance to watch football live after many days of remembering games behind the television screen.
