Having secured the last 8 Bundesliga titles, Bayern Munich is the team to beat in the German League. Not only the Bavarians rule in domestic competitions this decade, but they are also the current Champions League title holders and viewed as the best team in the world today.

With 3 matchdays played so far in the 2020/21 Bundesliga, competitiveness is very high as the major clubs already lost points. And some of them in a very surprising way. Bayern Munich fell hard against Hoffenheim by 4 goals to 1 and secured a 4-3 win in the dying seconds, last match against Hertha Berlin.

Seen as the main contenders to Bayern’s dominance, Dortmund also showed some inconsistency in the first 3 match-days of the season. The Black and Yellow were surprisingly beaten by Augsburg with a 2-0 loss in the second fixture of the Bundesliga. Curiously, Augsburg is on top of the standings, along with RB Leipzig and Eintracht Frankfurt, and they’re one of the most surprising sides so far in the German League.
