Nine points from the top of the table speak for themselves. Bayern Munich has been quick to overtake Borussia Dortmund again this season. For Sky expert Lothar Matthäus, the main question has already been decided. After five games without a win in a row, Borussia Monchengladbach are the “biggest disappointment” of the season for the former professional player.
For national record player Lothar Matthaus, Bayern’s next title title is already a foregone conclusion after the first half of the season. “Nine points, another home game against Dortmund – I can’t imagine another champion,” said the 60-year-old, who is a football expert at Bild am Sonntag. “You have quality players who are also team players. Over the years no other club has played consistently enough to stay close to Bayern.”
Borussia Dortmund, for example, does not have the same quality in critical use of the mistakes made by their opponents. The former Bayern professional referred to his observations in Munich’s 3-2 win in the derby in Dortmund. In BVB, there are very few players who will be a boost to Bayern and only a few can play well there. “What was left of it fell out,” Matthaus, who accompanied Dortmund’s 2:3 team Saturday evening at Hertha Berlin’s Olympic stadium, told Sky TV. Due to the defeat, he is now second in the table with nine points behind Bayern Munich.
