Bundesliga previews ...

18.08.2017 02:02 - Leader

At the heart of the "Allianz Arena", Bayern and Leverkusen will kick off the German championship, one of Europe's top five, and the fourth one to open the race for the 2017/18 season. The long journey of 9 months and 34 games, promises spectacle, anxiety, phases and goals to all fans who will watch it either on the court or on the small screen. Bundesliga the football league with the highest average attendance of spectators in the stadiums all over the world! Last season the average amounted to 41,514 spectators, with Borussia Dortmund being by far the "champion", with 79,653 spectators. In every game! In the 54 years of the Bundesliga, 54 teams have participated, out of whom only 12 have won the title. The titles that were won before the creation of the Bundesliga, but not officially recognized as national championship titles, are counting on the pulse of the German teams.

So, as far as the Bundesliga is concerned, Bayern has the most titles (26) and is the only one with a two-digit number of conquests. The podium is complemented by Borussia Menchandladbach and Borussia Dortmund, of 5 titles each. Here are: Werder Bremen (4), Hamburg and Stuttgart (3), Cologne and Kaiserslautern (2), Munich 1860, Eintracht Braunschweig, Nuremberg and Wolfsburg (1). To date, no team either from Berlin or from the former East Germany has become a champion. The biggest run belongs naturally to Bayern and is the current one, the last five titles that the Bavarians have won, from 2013 until today. As we have already mentioned, 18 teams are fighting in the Bundesliga. Until this year, the top three of the scoring went directly to the Champions League group, while the fourth claimed their presence in them from the play-off phase. The fifth team went directly to the Europa League clubs and the sixth in the playoffs of the same event. From time to time, after the changes in UEFA, the top four will go directly to the Champions League, fifth in the Europa League and the sixth in the Europa League playoffs. What remains the same is that the last two of the scoring at the end of the season are relegated to the 2nd Bundesliga (2nd National) and the Bundesliga's third-end team plays a barrage with the third from the top of the 2. Bundesliga.

As it has been the case in recent years, this year, Bayern is the absolute - and only - favorite to win the title in Germany. The Munich team may have lost two great personalities such as Lam and Chambie Alonso, who have stopped, but have been strengthened and have a lot of quality so they will not be in trouble trying to reach the sixth consecutive title. Unfortunately, for the level of the German championship, no other team is in the favorites category, and Bayern has been paying for Bayern in recent years in Europe, as the Bundesliga is not particularly competitive, at least in the battle for the top.

Nor will we have a "crowd" in this category, since only two names, Dortmund and Leipzig, fit. Borussia is coming here more than a habit, since since her last championship in 2012 she has not been able to bother Bayern again, and this is reflected in her big differences from the Bavarians on the scoreboard. Leipzig, after the amazing last season of the season, won the right to be considered an outsider, but it would be too difficult for Bayern to stop. This year, everyone will pay much attention to it, and there will be increased obligations with participation in the Champions League.

In the Bundesliga we also have the biggest Greek representation with five Greek players to compete in five different teams: Kostas Staphylidis in Augsburg, Thanos Petsos in Werder Bremen, Socrates Papastathopoulos in Borussia Dortmund, Kyriakos Papadopoulos in Hamburg and Tasos Dion in Stuttgart . We also have the following foreign players with a Greek service: Finnogason (OAFP) in Augsburg, Gilabare (WPPP) in Werder Bremen and Vienna (PAOK) in Wolfsburg.
