we first have the experts to get a word in. Lothar Matthäus, in his weekly Sky column “As I see it” for the upcoming Bundesliga round predicts: “I maintain that Dortmund will decide the title race. But if anyone can make it, catch up with them, then of course the Bavarians.” So in summary: If the cock crows on the dung, the weather, or it remains as it is. Matthew can already be certainly, to be able to in may for this successful advance to celebrate say.

Dortmund before Bayern, Bayern against Dortmund – that’s why it will go only in the evening, when the return round begins with the game of Munich in Hoffenheim (20.30; TV: ZDF live Ticker MIRROR ONLINE), but in the coming Bundesliga months. Finally, the more is the most logical Option, that the Eintracht Frankfurt will take in addition to winning the Europa League and also the national title, at 15 points behind first place and the well known penchant of Concord for the second half of the season, leading the club reliably to the edge of the relegation zone, rather unlikely. Who is now waiting for the Frankfurt-texts of the usual “Stand now”, is not to be disappointed. As of right now.

51 points are spread in this season. Six points of the BVB ahead of the Bayern currently. It is only after the football-Adam Riese is still much possible. And including a lot that speaks for this, to see Bayern at the end but again at the front. 50 years after the FC Bayern Munich has celebrated its first League championship. Here are a couple of small arguments for the Bayern fans are whistling in the forest, and the have to do especially with the competition:

Heavy away matches for Borussia Dortmund

The game plan for example. Dortmund four of the five Teams that are directly behind the BVB has had in the first half of the season at home to a guest: There was a 4:1 over RB Leipzig, a 3:2 against Bayern, a 2:1 over Borussia Mönchengladbach and a 3:1 against Eintracht Frankfurt. Only the table’s fifth VfL Wolfsburg, what is still strange, joined the BVB away and won 1:0.

After the round logic, the serious courses are now: on Saturday at RB, two weeks later, in Frankfurt, at the beginning of April it goes to Munich. On the last round Gladbach, who have won every home game then wait. Until then, the BVB should have brought his sheep better in the Dry.

The first half of the season was a single, never-ending Party for BVB Fans: 4:3 against Augsburg in the very last Minute, the lucky compensation in Hoffenheim just before the end, the Last-Minute successes in the DFB Cup, the fight Back against Bayern, the noise-final stage, the tale in the Champions League against Atlético Madrid, all the Joker is goals, the substitute decided the roles for Black-and-Yellow – theoretically this can go on forever. But the past half-year was also an emotional tour de force for the young players. Nobody would be surprised, if this also calls for eventually take its toll.

How Favre reacts?

if So, wonder how no-one about how quickly the summer come coach Lucien Favre has already after a short period of time such a successful Team is formed. There are only a few Coaches have as he had the gift, through speech, through meticulousness, an eye for a player a Team-to kiss awake, its possibilities. Favre has proven to be sufficient in the case of Hertha BSC, Borussia Mönchengladbach, most recently at OGC nice. Something to him to be liable Awesome, the can currently claim really a lot of trainers.

Lucien Favre

The Swiss but also in crisis situations in the past, erratically, respond despondent, it was Favre on the other side of Lucien. At his previous clubs he had also developed a certain inclination, important goals for the season, lose in the final phase. To speak in the case of a 61-Year-old from the matriculation examination, may sound snooty. However, Borussia Dortmund is the first real Topverein, the the Trainer. If it come to that: How Lucien Favre with setbacks at BVB, he may fall back into old patterns?

The main argument in favor of FC Bayern, however, is another: The BVB in the spring of still mentally and physically exhausting Champions League games. The Munich-based focus, however, from the middle of March in peace on the core goal of the Bundesliga championship.
