There is a title race in the Bundesliga for a change. Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund are locked in a battle for the league title yet again. But, they are joined by the unlikeliest contenders – Union Berlin.
The capital club are level on points with both the giants of the league, and have had an unbelievable season so far. However, their challenge could be cut short by the Rekordmeister themselves, since their next match is against Bayern Munich.
Bundesliga title race – Bayern, Dortmund and Union level on points
Since the turn of the year, Bayern Munich have only won three of their six games. And considering their unstoppable record in the German top flight, it is a rarity for such a drop in form.
During their previous meeting in the Bundesliga, Union were able to take a point at home. And since then, Bayern have dropped points on multiple occasions. Most recently, they lost against Borussia Monchengladbach 3-2, with Yann Sommer failing to get the win against his former club.
Dortmund have put together a winning run of six games in the Bundesliga, and have recovered from their shaky start to the season. It remains to be seen whether they can continue their impressive streak to put together a title challenge that can be taken seriously.
The next Der Klassiker will take place on April 1, and could play an important part in the title race. However, Union Berlin cannot be counted out given how determined their performances have been this season.
