What a situation we find ourselves in in the Bundesliga right now. After 21 matches played, three teams are level at the top of the table on 43 points, potentially giving us an exciting title race that will last the remainder of the season. Currently leading the way on goal difference (and by some margin) are Bayern Munich, but they are also the team to have seen their lead slip in recent weeks.

Bayern are defending champions and searching for an 11th consecutive title, but started 2023 in poor form. Returning from the winter break with three consecutive draws, Bayern did finally end their winless start with consecutive victories over Wolfsburg and Bochum. But last time out they were beat 3-2 by an out-of-form Borussia Monchengladbach which allowed two teams to move level on points.

One of those teams is Union Berlin, with the capital club currently third due to goal difference, also trailing Borussia Dortmund. But Union have actually strung together more wins than Bayern Munich this season 13-12, with four draws and four defeats. Union also had the opportunity to go top of the table last weekend but they were held to a goalless draw by strugglers Schalke.

The draw ended Union’s five-game winning run in the Bundesliga since the return of the German top flight which also saw them beat RB Leipzig. Across all competitions, Union are now unbeaten in nine matches since a 4-1 defeat to Freiburg in their final game before the World Cup. That run has also seen Union reach the last 16 of the Europa League, beating Ajax 3-1 on aggregate.
