Bayern Munich Allianz Arena

Bayern Munich have been crowned Bundesliga champions for a ninth successive season, with Hansi Flick set to bow out with another title under his belt.

The Bavarian heavyweights have flexed their muscles again in the current campaign, with none of their rivals able to stay with them.

The title race has been taken down to the final few games, but Bayern have looked comfortable for much of the season.

Bayern only lost four times all season in the league, and their 24 victories, four more than any other side has managed helped to keep their noses in front, with any slight stumbles being shaken off.

Will Der Klassiker Decide Title Race?

Der Klassiker

Tomorrow Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund meet in potential title decider. The matchup between first and second place in the Bundesliga is called Der Klassiker or the “German Clasico”.

Since the foundation of the Bundesliga in 1963, they are two of the most successful teams in German football, having won a combined total of 21 of the past 25 Bundesliga titles as of 2019. The two teams also met in the 2013 UEFA Champions League Final.

Bundesliga Trying To Return On May 9

The Bundesliga is ready to return on May 9 if the German government gives it the green light, league officials have confirmed.

The league has been suspended since mid-March due to the outbreak of coronavirus, which has infected more than 148,000 and killed over 5,000 people in Germany.

Its resumption, behind closed doors, remains dependent on government and all federal states’ approval, and Bundesliga chief executive Christian Seifert warned providing an exact date “would be presumptuous and is not in our hands”.

“If we start on 9 May, we are ready. If it is later, we will be ready again,” DFL chief executive Seifert said on Thursday.

Bundesliga Games To Be Played Behind Closed Doors Until 2021

FIFA About To Get Sued As They Unilaterally Extend Player Contracts

FIFA have announced contracts will be extended and transfer windows shift in line with the changing fixture list after the COVID-19 crisis. A decison that is sure to be met with lawsuits as FIFA does not have the power to unilaterally extend player contracts.

Nobody knows when the current season will resume, or even if it will resume, so FIFA have taken the step of guaranteeing some elements that were up for debate.

Specifically, that allows player contracts to be extended beyond June 30 to the natural end of the season, and moves the transfer windows to an appropriate time for the clubs and players in this new reality.
