With the Bundesliga season now finished, the Bundesliga Diaries hands out its End of Season awards. They compile their first XI of the season, whilst also looking back at some of the most memorable moments the past campaign has thrown up.
What a great week of football! With the Bundesliga coming to a close, we had the DFB Pokal and the Bundesliga promotion/relegation play-off to look forward to. Bayern beat Leipzig to complete the double, whilst Union defeat Stuttgart to become just the fifth side from former East Germany to reach the promised land.
The Bundesliga is over, and what a season it has been! On matchday 34, Bayern beat Frankfurt 5-1 to lift the title for the seventh year in a row, whilst Leverkusen beat Hertha by the same scoreline to secure Champions League football for the next campaign.
It may have gone down to the final day, but result was the same as ever: Bayern are Champions! And, on the day, they never looked like losing, failing to lead for just seven minutes of their match with Eintracht Frankfurt. Kingsley Coman opened the scoring early on and, despite Sebastien Haller’s equalizer, Bayern’s eventual victory […]
For the first time since 2010, the Bundesliga title race will be decided on the final day. That is mainly down to Bayern’s 0-0 draw at RB Leizpig. The Bavarians were the better side, but they were unable to break down a defence that has conceded just 27 goals all year. Leon Goretzka looked to […]
The Bundesliga is going to the wire! Dortmund beat Fortuna Düsseldorf 3-2 whilst Bayern draw 0-0 with Leipzig which means that the title will be decided in matchday 34. Hannover and Nürnberg are relegated, whilst the fight for the Champions League places goes on.
The title race is all but over! Dortmund are now four points behind with two games to play as they draw 2-2 with Bremen. Bayern beat Hannover 3-1 to leave themselves needing just one more win to lift the title. Frankfurt are hammered 6-1 by Leverkusen, while Leipzig draw 3-3 at Mainz.
The title race has gripped Bundesliga fans throughout the year, with Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund going head to head to see who will lift the trophy in May. However, after nine months of intense action, the race has been all but run, thanks to a contrasting matchday 32 for the two. Bayern were up […]
The Bundesliga offers up excitement on a weekly basis, and matchday 31 is no different! Dortmund fall to Schalke at home, with Reus and Wolf sent off, whilst Nürnberg almost beat Bayern. Leipzig secure their Champions League qualification, whilst the race for Europe remains as tight as ever.
Revenge is best served cold. Schalke fans still remember Borussia Dortmund ending their title hopes in 2007, with BVB beating them on the penultimate day of the season to effectively hand the Bundesliga to eventual winners VfB Stuttgart. On Saturday, however, they got their own back, putting a terrible season behind them to beat Lucien Favre’s […]
