Betting on the Bundesliga can give you great excitement. Considered one of the top leagues in the world, the Bundesliga is the top football division in Germany. There are 18 teams competing who face each other home and away to determine the German champions. At the end of the 34-day season, the top six teams qualify for the European competitions. The clubs finishing in the top four all qualify for the Champions League group stages the following year. Behind them, the fifth-placed club qualifies for the Europa League and the sixth-placed club for the Europa Conference League. Down at the bottom end of the table, the clubs finished 17th and 18th are automatically relegated. The side finishing 16th goes into a play-off with the team finishing third in Bundesliga II.
There are some great clubs playing in the Bundesliga. First of all, how can we not mention the great Bayern Munich, record holder of titles on the national scene? With world-class players, a heavenly Allianz Arena and top-notch supporters, Bayern have all the assets they need to win the title at the end of the season. It wouldn't be surprising, as every year the sports betting sites see them as the ultimate favorites to win the title. Behind the Bavarian club, other institutions are also dreaming, from Borussia Dortmund to RB Leipzig, through Leverkusen or Borussia Mönchengladbach. All these great football clubs make the Bundesliga prediction one of the favorites of European bettors.
Here's a look at key stats from the 2022-23 Bundesliga season.
Last season so nearly saw Borussia Dortmund win the Bundesliga title. If they had won their final game then that would have been the case but they could only draw. That handed the title again to Bayern Munich. Now we have the 2023-24 season and Bayern Munich have made a major signing. England's captain Harry Kane will now be playing for them and is odds-on to be the top scorer in the Bundesliga. They have strengthened at the back too with £50m spent on centre-back Min-jae-Kim from Italian champions Napoli.
Borussia Dortmund will have spent the summer kickiing themselves for not clinching the 2022-23 title. They have sold Jude Bellingham in the summer transfer window but have signed Felix Nmecha and Bayern's Marcel Sabitzer. Losing Bellingham is a big blow and no player scored a double figure number of goals for them in the Bundesliga last season. Leipzig will again be in contention and have already beaten Bayern in the German Super Cup this season. They have been big spenders in the summer with over £100m spent. That includes Lois Openda from Lens and Benjamin Sisko to boost them up front. They've also signed Xavi Simons on loan from PSG and could well be the main challengers to Bayern. If Kane settles in though, the defending champions can again win the title.
