Fans look forward to watching the Bundesliga decider on Saturday (May 27) as Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munchen will face FSV Mainz 05 and FC Koln.
Borussia Dortmund is now on top with 70 points. While FC Hollywood (nickname for Bayern Munchen) is second with 68 points, raising questions about whether Thomas Tuchel’s men will climb to the top on the Bundesliga’s last game.
The match against FSV Mainz 05 at Signal Iduna Park is a must-win for the 2011/2012 Bundesliga champions, as the fate of Jude Bellingham and colleagues will not rely on other matches. If Borussia Dortmund loses to Karnevalsverein, BVB only hopes that its rivals Bayern Munchen will succumb to FC Koln or draw.
The last time BVB clinched the Bundesliga title was in the 2011/2012 campaign when now-Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was in charge.
Given Bayern Munchen won the Bundesliga title in the last ten seasons, Borussia Dortmund aims to end Die Roten’s dominance this season.
Last weekend, Borussia Dortmund removed Bayern Munchen from the table’s top after defeating Augsburg 3-0 in the away game. In contrast, Thomas Muller and colleagues lost to Leipzig 1-3 at Allianz Arena.
Bayern Munchen has had a disappointing season but still can win the Bundesliga title.
Despite the disappointing season-as the manager Thomas Tuchel said in a press conference—the Bavarian still can overtake BVB in the final match and seal the Bundesliga title.
If BVB vs. Mainz 05 match ends in a draw and Bayern Munchen overcomes FC Koln, then Sadio Mane and colleagues will win the Bundesliga title thanks to a better goal difference.
Bayern Munchen has scored and conceded 90 and 37 goals in 33 matches, while BVB has booked 81 goals and conceded 42.
Bayern has lost five times in this season’s Bundesliga so far.
Borussia Dortmund’s last hopes
Die Borussen will seal the Bundesliga trophy if they win against Mainz 05 on the final day. Alternatively, BVB can secure the title if they either lose or play a draw against Mainz, and Bayern loses points against Cologne.
Borussia Dortmund aims to end Die Roten’s dominance in the last ten seasons and win their ninth Bundesliga title.
Dortmund’s manager Edin Terzic hopes his players will be in good condition in the Bundesliga’s last match.
BVB is predicted to win easily against Mainz 05 as the former won in the last four matches against the same opponent in Bundesliga.
Also, Borussia Dortmund has won in the last 11 home matches (Bundesliga).
Players to watch:
Borussia Dortmund: Youngsters such as Jude Bellingham, Karim Adeyemi, Jamie Bynoe-Gittens, Yousoffa Moukoko, and Gio Reyna are the team’s driving force behind the Bundesliga title race.
However, the veteran Marco Reus and the senior defender Mats Hummels cannot be forgotten as they are the soulds of BVB. The latter has won five Bundesliga with Dortmund and Bayern Munchen.
Bayern Munchen: Thomas Muller has been consistent so far. In addition to that, players like Serge Gnabry and Jamal Musiala have scored 14 and 11 respectively this season.
