Things hotting up in Week 27 of Bundesliga
After its successful resumption last weekend, the Bundesliga continues, with the Berlin derby kicking Week 27 off on Friday evening.
All things considered, last weekend’s relaunch was a relative success, as the restart went smoothly without incident.
On the pitch, three of the top four all won, with only RB Leipzig dropping points – drawing 1-1 with Freiburg.
And this weekend the action is really hotting up, with league leaders Bayern Munich, taking on struggling Eintracht Frankfurt, at the Allianz Arena – in what already is a must win game for the defending champions.
Anything less than 3 points for Munich, could see then knocked off top spot as soon as this Tuesday, the day when Munich visit Signal Iduna Park to face Dortmund.
We’re only coming up to the second match day since the resumption, and we’re already entering into a pivotal few days that could decide the destination of the title.
What does play into Munich’s favour today is the kick off times. Dortmund play at 2.30pm, before Bayern start at 5.30pm.
By the time Munich kick off their home match against Frankfurt, they will know what they need to do, as Dortmund will have already played their tricky fixture away at Wolfsburg.
On the flip side, a win for Dortmund would heap the pressure on Munich.
