With both Bayern and Dortmund through to the semi finals of the Champions League and the national team waltzing to World Cup qualification, German football looks exceptionally strong this term.
The Bundesliga has a healthy mix of foreigners and home grown talent and is watched by record crowds at reasonable ticket rates. Furthermore, the clubs have to adhere to strict and sensible financial regulations providing a relatively level of competition for all whilst off setting potential business meltdown.
Everything is warming up nicely for German domination in European football. Especially if Platini’s financial fair play comes to fruition.
Last weekend Bayern wrapped up the title in record time over a faltering Borrusia Dortmund.They could also snare a unheralded triple of Cups: Champions League, Bundesliga and German Cup by season end.
Bayern’s return to the top comes after two years of 2nd place failure.
Current top team of the Bundesliga:
Dante (Bayern), Piszcek (Dortmund), Lahm (bayern)
Ribery (Bayern), Reus (Dortmund), Guendogan (Dortmund), Max Kruse (Freiburg)
Kiessling (Leverkusen), Mandzukic (bayern)
