With the exception of FC Bayern Munich fans, footballing Germany is unlikely to be delighted that the Munich club has won the German championship seven times in a row. But unlike FC Augsburg, who have to fear relegation, FC Bayern could be German champions again in 2021There's no denying that now. However, there are other teams who are favourites to win the title. And these teams will certainly not give up without a fight. But what is the current situation of FC Bayern? Does everything really boil down to the championship title at the moment?
sayWiththe bookmakers, there seems to be little doubt. The odds are in favour of FC Bayern becoming champions again in 2021 at practically every bookmaker. On average, the odds amount to
1.3, which is pretty clear. Furthermore, the difference to the competitors Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig is huge. For Borussia Dortmund, the odds are
8.0 on average.
For RB Leipzig, the odds are even
8.0 to 110. Of course, bettors can be wrong. Nevertheless, such odds show that the probability is in favor of Bayern.
What the coaches sayButnot only the betting providers, but also most coaches in the Bundesliga believe that FC Bayern Munich will be champions for the eighth time in a row. This is evident from the results of several polls. Only Florian Kohfeldt still believes that BVB will win the league title in 2021The team would certainly have the squad for it. However, the results in the Bundesliga have not been ideal so far. Instead, Wolfsburg, Mönchengladbach and SC Freiburg have caused a few surprises. So far, the Bundesliga remains as exciting as ever. So it can't be ruled out that the coaches' opinions will change as well.
The top-ranked squadIn terms of squad, FC Bayern is still the strongest team in the Bundesliga.
The club is well-staffed in all positions. In goal is Manuel Neuer, who is definitely one of the best goalkeepers in the world. The defence is well-staffed anyway with Niklas Süle, Lucas Hernández and new signing Benjamin Pavard. We don't even need to talk about the midfield. Thiago, Leon Goretzka, Corentin Tolisso and of course star Philippe Coutinho keep Bayern's game going. And the forward line is also in a class of its own. With Kingsley Coman, Serge Gnabry and Robert Lewandowski, Bayern have a strong attack. However, unhappy players, could weaken the morale of the team. Especially the case of Müller is a risk that Bayern should not underestimate.
The results in the Bundesliga and Champions LeagueTheFC Bayern Munich has shown its class several times in both the Bundesliga and the Champions League. Especially the 7:2 against Tottenham is a result to be proud of. But there have also been setbacks. Especially the surprising 1-2 home defeat against TSG 1899 Hoffenheim proved that Bayern have to watch out. Not to mention missing out on the league lead. Currently, FC Bayern has to settle for third place. However, the gap between them and league leader Mönchengladbach is only two points. It is therefore likely that Bayern will regain the league lead. Nevertheless, everything is open so far.
Another champion is not unrealistic.
