All eyes were on the Bundesliga last weekend as the German top-flight returned from its lengthy exile and with all the other major European leagues still out of action, punters have been busy backing their favourite Bundesliga teams. Indeed the return of live football has been warmly welcomed by fans starved of action for many weeks and while Irish and UK punters eagerly await the return of the Premier League and Football League, the Bundesliga finds itself firmly in the sightlines right now.
Silence of the stands
Saturday really isn’t the same without some live football taking place and the weekend Bundesliga action certainly lived up to the hype with some thrilling matches taking place, however the lack of spectators made for slightly uneasy and somewhat strange viewing. The fans will return at some point but for now this is something that we will need to get used to, both in the German top-flight and in all the other major European leagues when they recommence.
Right to the wire
Bayern Munich are once again closing in on the Bundesliga Title and they hit the ground running upon their return with a 2-0 win at Union Berlin, however they certainly don’t have things all their own way at the top of the table. Second-placed Borussia Dortmund are just four points adrift of the Bavarians and they made light work of Schalke 04 in their first outing since the enforced break, Lucien Favre’s men scoring four without reply against their hapless opponents. Dortmund went into the weekend as 11/2 shots for the title, however with third-placed RB Leipzig dropping points at home to Freiburg in their weekend outing, the odds on Favre’s side finishing top of the pile have been slashed to as low as 4/1 with some bookmakers.
One team to beat
Dortmund are at the top of a chasing pack looking to take down reigning champions Bayern Munich, however last season’s title winners have shortened to 1/5 for yet another Bundesliga crown. Can anyone stop them in their tracks? The bookmakers don’t think so!
