The Results of an Extraordinary and Unique Bundesliga Season

This Bundesliga season has come to an end. For a month, it had been known that Bayer was the champions (for the first time in the club’s 120-year history). There was no intrigue about which five teams would go to the Champions League (Bayer, Stuttgart, Bayern, Leipzig, and Borussia D). For those looking to place bets on next season’s games, you can click here for a comprehensive list of bookmakers. That’s the main takeaway from the tournament, but here are four other vital points.

Bayer Went Through the Season Without Defeat

It happened. Xabi Alonso’s team won the German championship and never lost this season. In 34 rounds, Bayer has 28 wins, six draws and no defeats. This is the first time anyone has achieved anything like that in the tournament’s history, which has been played since 1963. ‘Bayer’ is close to not losing at all in all tournaments during the season. Two games remain – the Europa League final against Atalanta (22 May) and the German Cup final against Kaiserslautern, the 15th team from the Second Bundesliga (25 May).

Bayern Is the Biggest Disappointment of the Season

Munich have taken the championship 11 times in a row. This streak would have been broken one day in any case. But it is crucial to know exactly what happened. Bayern are 18 points behind first place! In the last round, Munich dropped to third place, and the team did not finish so low for 13 years. Even though Bayern has one of the best strikers on the planet – Harry Kane. The club is suffering from internal strife in the locker room and management. As a result, many coaches have given up on Bayern, including Alonso, Julian Nagelsmann, Ralf Rangnick and Thomas Tuchel. It still needs to be determined who will lead the team in the summer.

Royce Says Goodbye to the Bundesliga

Germany will be leaving a player who has become one of the symbols of the tournament – Marco Royce, who has played the last 12 seasons for Borussia Dortmund. The attacking midfielder will turn 35 this month. Royce has rarely been in the starting line-up lately, but in the final round, he appeared from the first minutes. He saw a large-scale performance by the fans, scored himself, assisted his partner and left to applause. It was a beautiful farewell. He will probably not play in the Bundesliga. According to Fabrizio Romano, the player will continue his career in MLS.

Stuttgart and Ghirassi Are the Season Opener (after Bayer, of Course)

The main discovery could be called Bayer, but as if that wasn’t enough for him. What Alonso’s team did is cosmic and unique to the rest of Europe. So mark mere mortals. Stuttgart’s last championship finished in 16th place and was forced to play knockout matches with the third team of the Second Bundesliga to stay in the top division. Now the team has become the second, and 42-year-old coach Sebastian Hönes (Dieter’s son and Uli’s nephew. – Note: ‘Championship’) is interested in Bayern. Well, Seru Girassi has produced some crazy statistics, scoring 26 goals. Last season, he would have been the league’s top scorer by a margin with that kind of performance (Christopher Nkunku and Niklas Füllkrug had 16 goals each).
