Who are favourites to win the Bundesliga?
In what will come as a surprise to absolutely no one, Bayern Munich are heavy odds-on favourites to win the Bundesliga for the 11th consecutive season after overcoming their concerning start to the season. After going four games without victory, Bayern are once again top of the table, four points clear of second place thanks to a run of six-straight wins before the World Cup.
It’s a similar story to the past few seasons in which Bayern have taken a grip of top spot just before the winter break and refusing to let go in the second half of the campaign. And some are already packaging the title to be shipped back to the Allianz Arena come May.

Which teams are expected to put up a fight?
RB Leipzig have finished in the top four in each of the last four seasons and will be hoping they can push Bayern all the way this season, though they have already sacked Domenico Tedesco and appointed Marco Rose. It has them favourites to challenge Bayern, though there is a six-point gap between Die Roten Bullen in third and the Bundesliga leaders at World Cup break.
Borussia Dortmund are usually the closest team to Bayern Munich and have finished as runners-up to their Klassiker rivals in three of the last four seasons. And for that reason they are third-favourites, despite not being in the top four right now. In fact, they’re not even in the Europa League spot, currently sixth having lost six of their opening 15 matches including their final two before the World Cup.
The surprise name in the top four are currently Freiburg, who were leading the Bundesliga table for a while before slipping recently. But they remain second, four points behind Bayern, and in a good position to at least secure a Champions League spot. Completing the top four are Eintracht Frankfurt, but they are only above fifth-placed Union Berlin on goal difference.

Bundesliga relegation odds
At the other end of the table, sides will be doing all they can to stay in the Bundesliga and avoid the bottom three.
The bottom two sides are automatically relegated to Bundesliga 2, while the 17th place side face a play-off game to keep their place in the division.
In 2021/22, Hertha Berlin remained in the division after a 2-1 play-off win over Hamburg, while newcomers Schalke and Werder Bremen will hope that their returns to Germany’s top division lasts more than just one season. However, it is Schalke who currently occupy bottom spot with just nine points from their 15 games, winning two matches and losing 10. They have the worst attack in the league and the second-worst defence, with only 17th-placed Bochum conceding more.
But things are a bit closer above them with four points separating Bochim and Koln in 13th, with Hertha Berlin once again in danger.
