The German top tier soccer league ‘The Bundesliga' returns this weekend May 16th, providing the first taste of live action from a top soccer league in over 61 days with a classic derby and several matches that would excite soccer fans on any given week.
Only nine rounds of matches left to play in the Bundesliga, and there is still plenty to play for; a title chase with big clashes a the top of the table, European places yet to be decided and battles to avoid relegation.
Title Chase: Leaders Bayern Munich (55 points) still have to face the second-place Borussia Dortmund (51 points), fourth-place Borussia Monchengladbach (49 points), and fifth-place Bayer Leverkusen (47 points) sides with just six points of separation.
Race to secure European place: Only six clubs will progress to Europe, and three clubs are a win away from the spot. Schalke (37 points) is leading the way in the fight for sixth place, while seventh will join the fray of UEL (UEFA Europa League) depending on how the domestic cup DFB-Pokal unfolds. If Bayern or Leverkusen win, then the seventh place is UEL eligible.
Battle for Survival: It's currently a two-team race for the Play-offs spot between Fortuna Dusseldorf sitting in sixteen place (22 points) followed by Werder Bremen (18 points). It would only take a small cold streak from any one of the lower four teams to fire up the relegation fight.
