European soccer is coming to a close for the 2022-2023 season. The English Premier League, Spanish Primera Liga, and Italian Serie A have already been crowned champions. The Premier League was won by Manchester City for the third consecutive season, the Primera Liga by Barcelona, and Serie A by Napoli with Kim Min-jae.
The only league in Europe where the title race is not yet over is the German Bundesliga. With 34 rounds to go this weekend, Dortmund has the advantage. Dortmund has 70 points (22 wins, 4 draws, 7 losses, 81 points, 42 goals), ahead of second-place Bayern Munich (68 points, 20 wins, 8 draws, 5 losses, 90 points, 37 goals). However, the standings could change depending on the outcome of the final match.
As the Bundesliga’s most dominant team, Bayern Munich has held the league crown for 10 consecutive seasons since the 2012-2013 season. After Julian Nagelsmann was sacked midway through the season due to poor results, the Bavarians reclaimed the lead with a 4-2 win at Dortmund on April 2, their first game since hiring Thomas Tuchel.
However, they were subsequently knocked out of the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals by Manchester City and then fell to Mainz, a team featuring international midfielder Lee Jae-sung. Add to that a 1-3 loss in Leipzig last time out, where they conceded the lead to Dortmund, and you have a red flag in their quest for a 32nd league title.
Dortmund, on the other hand, bounced back to extend their unbeaten run to seven games (W5 D2 L) since their loss to Bayern Munich in April.
With both teams preparing to celebrate immediately after the match, Dortmund will finish atop the league for the first time since the 2011-2012 season with a win over Mainz (9th) on the 27th. Bayern Munich will travel to Cologne (10th) on the same day to try to pull off the upset. If Dortmund draws and Bayern Munich wins to equalize the points, Bayern Munich will win the title on goal difference.스포츠토토
Jung’s Freiburg will try to qualify for the Champions League for the first time since the club’s inception in their final match of the day against Frankfurt. The fourth-place finisher in the Bundesliga qualifies for next season’s European Champions League. Fifth place earns you a spot in the Europa League, Europe’s club competition one step below the Champions League. Currently, fifth-place Freiburg (50 points, 42 goals) and fourth-place Union Berlin (50 points, 38 goals) have the same 59 points.
Meanwhile, the French Ligue 1 title has been effectively locked up by Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) for the second straight season. PSG has 84 points with two games remaining, a comfortable lead over second-place Reims (78 points). PSG need only a draw against Strasbourg on Sunday to clinch the title with one game remaining. It would also extend PSG’s record to 11 Ligue 1 titles.
