Bayern Munich enters winter break with nine point lead after Borussia Dortmund collapse

When Bayern Munich traveled to Westfalenstadion on December 4, they held a one-point lead in the standings over their Der Classicer rival Borussia Dortmund. At the end of that match, Bayern were four points ahead, 34 to 30. Now, with the Bundesliga approaching the winter break, Bayern extended their lead by nine points, 43 to 34 points.

Bayern ended the year 2021 with a difficult victory over Mainz (2-1), before beating Stuttgart (5-0) and Wolfsburg (4-0). On the other side, Dortmund capped Henrond with a second-half loss to Hertha Berlin after Bochum equalized and beat Grether Fürth.

You can’t win the Bundesliga at Hinrunde, but you are can lose it It is very likely that Dortmund’s last three matches in December have ended their hopes of really pushing Bayern Munich to win the league title.

Is the Bundesliga race over? No, but entering January with a nine-point lead at the top of the table is a huge boost for Julian Nagelsmann as he looks to win his first Bundesliga title and tenth in a row for Bayern Munich.

Bayern is losing now.
