Summing up the top five teams from the Bundesliga standings after 25 match days, let’s have a short take upon their recent performance.
Defending champions Bayern recently claimed the top spot as they remained poised in getting their games to victory, and with Leipzig’s 1 loss and 1 draw slowed them down from the race in points, while Bayern maintains their winning streak getting all three points from the last two games against Schalke and Mainz.
So far they’ve lost four games out of twenty in total wherein the most devastating defeat was back in matchday 10 against Frankfurt where they lost 5-1 in their arena.
Still, with its high win-rate on either playing at home or as the visitor, Bayern Munchen does not seem to be stopping any time soon, ranking at the top spot from the standings would mean they aren’t supposed to let any points slip away easily with all its close contending teams aren’t far away from the rankings.
With the clean sheet loss from Eintracht Frankfurt and a forced draw against Gladbach by Nkunku’s equalizer last game dethroned Leipzig at the top of the mountain from the Bundesliga standings with less damage on its points. Facing the reigning top team Bayern Munchen this coming weekend would be a test in which one deserves its place.
The team is full of youngsters having the youngest average team among all teams by less than 25 of the median age. Tackling with their strategy, they recently signed 21-year-old Dani Olmo that would give a boost on their offensive end either from the midfield or through the wings.
With the current pace of the team, they’re potentially the best to take a stand against Bayern Munchen.
Dortmund as third from the standings has gotten its upward momentum slowly in grabbing its wins, not letting down its expectations towards this season as they remain to be one of the top contenders in getting the title. Dortmund is the most efficient team when it comes to goal percentage and dribble attempts.
Gladbach had to also drop its position from standings as fourth because of the 2-2 draw against Leipzig, they were consistent from the start of the season getting the right rhythm and eventually putting them ranked at the top. However, things have been shaky lately for the team, with the adjustments from their lineup could be a cause of their results, they need to figure out what suits the team at best similar to their run at the start of the season to remain at their highest level.
Despite back-to-back losses, they climbed five steps above the 10th spot from where they ranked before the past ten match days. Leverkusen displays the perseverance in keeping track of their ambition to contend among the best teams in the league. Their goal difference remains positive by a small difference yet having more wins in visiting teams rather at their own home speaks high potential for this team, improving their plays at home and winning at the end would make no questions on what Leverkusen can do.
