These are the chances of the top teams and those promoted in the coming Bundesliga season
Bayern Munich: The German record champions recently won the cup ten times in a row. And in the 2022/23 season, the other clubs will have to make an enormous effort again to prevent Bayern from defending their title again. Finally, the Munich have strengthened with the Senegalese top offensive man Sadio Mané from Liverpool. And midfielder Ryan Gravenberch, who joined the Isar from Ajax Amsterdam, is another well-known signing. The only question that remains is whether Bayern can cope with the departure of their record striker Robert Lewandowski.
Borussia Dortmund: As every year, BVB is again at the top of the list of teams that are among Bayern’s biggest competitors in the fight for the championship. No wonder after three second places in the past four seasons. And this time the Dortmunders are apparently serious: Top transfers such as the striker Sebastien Haller (from Ajax Amsterdam) or Karim Adeyemi (from RB Salzburg) show that Borussia does not want to congratulate the Munich team on the title again prematurely. But can the signings replace superstar Erling Haaland, who joined Manchester City in the Premier League? If so, the battle for supremacy in German football will remain exciting to the end this season.
Bayer Leverkusen: Leverkusen have been one of the top teams in the league for many years. But the Werkself have never won the championship before. They may have rid themselves of the reputation of being “Vizekusen” in the meantime, but given the tough competition next year, Bayer shouldn’t be upset about a second place like last time in the 2010/11 season. New signing Adam Hlozek from Sparta Prague should ensure success. As the second-best team from the second half of last season, you can even dream of winning your first Bundesliga title.
RB Leipzig: The Saxons celebrated the greatest success in their young club history by winning the DFB Cup in 2022. Although they have only been in the Bundesliga since 2016, RB has also been German runners-up twice. Will the next big coup succeed this season? Among other things, newcomer Xaver Schlager from VfL Wolfsburg help. If Leipzig don’t play a messed up first half of the season like last season, everything is possible. After all, they were the best second half team in 2021/22.
1. FC Union Berlin: After a successful 2020/21 season with qualification for the newly created Europa Conference League, the Köpenickers again caused a huge surprise last season. 5th place means the best Bundesliga placement in the club’s history and at the same time qualification for the Europa League. Can Union withstand the pressure this time and not be eliminated from European competition again early after the group stage? If so, the question is how the Berliners deal with the burden of even more English weeks. Another Europa League qualification would be a huge achievement.
SC Freiburg: Hardly any experts had expected such a strong past season from the Breisgauer: The sports club even played for the Champions League places for a long time, in the end it was enough for sixth place and the Europa League qualification. But is this possibly even a bad omen? When Freiburg presented itself on the big European football stage for the last time in 2013/14, they were relegated to the second division that season. Then as now still a trainer: cult coach Christian Streich. The fact that such a mishap will happen to him again is due to the strong newcomers Ritsu Doan from PSV Eindhoven, Daniel-Kofi Kyereh from FC St. Pauli or the returnee Matthias Ginter from Borussia Monchengladbach rather unlikely.
1. FC Cologne: In 2022, the Domstadters only saved themselves in the relegation against Holstein Kiel, last season staying up in the league was never in jeopardy. The “Effzeh” even qualified for the Europa Conference League in seventh place. Is there even more in the new season? With attacking man Sargis Adamyan from Club Brugge, defender Kristian Pedersen from Birmingham City and Steffen Tigges from Borussia Dortmund, the Cologne team has strengthened itself.
Eintracht Frankfurt: What a football festival that was! With the victory on penalties against Glasgow Rangers on May 18, 2022, the Hessians secured the title in the Europa League – after the UEFA Cup in 1980, the second major international success. The successful performance in Europe comforted the Eintracht fans over a mixed Bundesliga season, which ended in 11th place. In the coming season, a significant increase in performance is necessary. Especially since the Frankfurters are getting even tougher opponents on the European stage in the Champions League. Top transfers like Lucas Alario from Bayer Leverkusen and World Cup hero Mario Götze from PSV Eindhoven promise a lot.
FC Schalke 04: The miserable Bundesliga season 2020/21 is forgotten, the direct resurgence succeeded. The fans of the Royal Blues hope that the season in the 2nd division will remain a blip. It should at least be relegation this season. The hopes rest among other things on the newcomers Maya Yoshida from Sampdoria Genoa, Sebastian Polter from VfL Bochum and keeper Alexander Schwolow from Hertha BSC.
SV Werder Bremen: In addition to Schalke, Werder Bremen is another traditional club that has returned to the Bundesliga. If the league is to succeed, there must be no slump at the end of the season like in 2020/21. The North Germans have strengthened themselves with Oliver Burke from Sheffield United, Jens Stage from FC Copenhagen and Lee Buchanan from Derby County, among others.
Bundesliga season 2022/23: These teams are there
