Bundesliga Betting

Discover German Bundesliga Betting Online at William Hill

The Bundesliga is the highest level German football league. It is structured in an 18 team format, with each team playing each other home and away in a 34 game season. It is regarded as one of the strongest European leagues, containing several of Europe’s best teams and many of the world’s best players. The Bundesliga is famous for free-flowing, attacking football, epitomised today by teams like Wolfsburg, Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich. The latter is the most successful team in German football, and seen as one of the most prestigious clubs in world football. The German football season runs from August to May each year.

A central German football league arrived much later than its European counterparts. Although football was organised professionally in Germany since the early 20th century, the Bundesliga was not established until 1963. FC Köln (Cologne) were the inaugural champions in 1964. The early 1970s saw a golden age in German football; the great Bayern Munich team of Beckenbauer and Müller, as well as the Borussia Mönchengladbach team of Josef Heynckes, would triumph multiple times in Europe and form the backbone of Germany’s 1974 World Cup winning side. By the time the 1990s came round, Bayern Munich had established themselves as Germany’s footballing superpower, and they have been unrelenting in that role ever since.

Bayern Munich are the Benchmark in German Football

It is perhaps unfair to suggest that the Bundesliga has become a ‘one club league’ in recent years, but the dominance of Bayern Munich cannot be ignored. They have won every title with ease since 2012, winning by an average margin of 19 points each season. Bayern’s philosophy is to never stand still, constantly adding players to an already talented squad and often buying their direct rivals most talented stars. Their closest challengers have arguably been Borussia Dortmund, although RB Leipzig finished as surprise runners up last year. Such has been Bayern’s success in Germany, winning the Bundesliga alone is not seen as a yardstick to judge a season. Only Champion League glory will satisfy the Bayern Munich fans, a feat they last achieved in 2013.

Who can challenge Bayern Munich in the new season? Alone among Europe’s ‘Big 5’ leagues it seems that the Bundesliga will see a one-horse race again in 2017/18. Bayern have already added James Rodriguez and Corentin Tolisso to a squad that is already miles ahead of the rest in Germany. Such is the incredible strength and depth of the squad; Bayern’s second team would probably be seen as Bundesliga betting favourites for the new season. Still, we should never rule out the unexpected in football. Expect Leipzig, Dortmund and perhaps Schalke to fighting all the way to the finish this season.
