Bayern Munich meets Borussia Dortmund. The duel of the two best German teams. Ironically, against BVB Bayern can make clear the championship title. SPOX explains how FC Bayern could become German champions on Saturday.
The showdown for the German championship. On Saturday evening, FC Bayern Munich can make themselves champions early in their home Allianz Arena. That would be the tenth time in a row.
Last weekend the record champions won 3-0 away at Arminia Bielefeld. Now, of all things, everything should be bagged against the biggest competitor Borussia Dortmund.
After the elimination in the Champions League quarter-finals against FC Villarreal, the championship in the Bundesliga seems like a conciliatory end to the 21/22 season.
Borussia Dortmund has also played a rather mixed season so far. In the Bundesliga they are by far in second place, but in the Champions League they were eliminated in the group stage and then they lost early in the Europa League against Glasgow Rangers. A win against FC Bayern could make the championship even more exciting.
SPOX shows you all the scenarios that could make FC Bayern champions.
