Robert Lewandowski the record-breaker
It’s not surprising that Bayern Munich continued their winning ways, having won all their games since the league’s resumption to claim their eighth consecutive title.
However, one of the main players that played an important role in Polish striker Robert Lewandowski, who scored his 33rd goal in the Bundesliga following Bayern’s 3-1 win over Freiburg. His 33rd goal meant that he set a new record in scoring the most goals in a single season from a non-German player.
He still has eyes sets on Gerd Muller’s record of 40 goals, however, with one matchday left to play it’s unlikely he will score seven to match this year, but with Lewandowski, you never know.
From A-League to Bundesliga
What a year Sarpreet Singh has had.
A year ago he was gracing the A-League with Wellington Pheonix. And after some impressive displays it caught the German clubs’ attention and he signed for one of the biggest clubs in Europe.
Fast forward a year and he earned his first Bundesliga start in the sides 3-1 win over SC Freiburg.
Playoff for second went Dortmund’s way
Considering the league was already won last week, the big blockbuster game was between third-place RB Leipzig who was eying a second-placed spot against second-placed Borussia Dortmund, who before this week still had a three-point buffer.
Dortmund now has a six-point buffer heading into the last matchday of the Bundesliga thanks to Norwegian young gun Erling Haaland, who bagged a brace in the sides 2-0 win over Leipzig. Tt means that Dortmund is certain to finish second, while Leipzig has a battle for who finishes third with Borussia Monchengladbach hot on their heels.
Race for relegation reaching its climax
Only SC Paderborn has been confirmed to be relegated in the bottom half of the table, but although it’s inevitable nothing is still for certain.
SC Werder Bremen who look to end their 40 years in Germany’s top flight, could still have a lifeline as they are only two points behind the relegation playoff place, Fortuna Dusseldorf. In saying that though, Bremen didn’t do themselves any favours as they fell to FC Mainz 3-1.
Similarly, Dusseldorf is probably in the best position to be handed a lifeline out of the two, as they are currently in the relegation playoff spot, following their 1-1 draw with FC Ausburg who are six points clear of the relegation playoff spot.
Despite that there is still one week to play, this race could change dramatically.
