Bundesliga is officially back as they resume the league from 16th of May but the league table leaders FC Bayern Munchen are not scheduled for a match on the opening day of the competition.
FC Bayern Munchen is scheduled to face of Union Berlin away from home in Union Berlin’s Stadion An der Alten Forsterei ground on Sunday 17th of May.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic the Bundesliga was suspended for a period of time since March 13. Now that the league is resuming is a big news FC Bayern Munchen who are on their way to win eight consecutive league win.
FC Bayern Munchen is currently leading the league standing ahead of their biggest rival in Borussia Dortmund who are placed 2nd in the table and are just four points behind the Bayern team.
Bayern were on a hot streak before the league was suspended, they have won 10 out of their last 11 games and have only lost 4 matches in the entire league so far and won 17 matches so far.
Their last win was against Augsburg at home on 8th of March. It will be something to see if the Bayern players are fit after almost 2 months of break and can they continue their hot streak.
Robert Lewandowski, the FC Bayern Munchen player is currently the leading goal scorer in the league and behind him is RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner with 21 goals on his name.
FC Bayern have collected 31 points from possible last 33 points to surpass rivals Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig to the top of the leaderboard. Their last loss was against Borussia Monchengladbach last year in December.
As for Union Berlin, the case is same here too. They have also not played any football matches since the league was suspended. And will be interesting to see if they are in good fitness.
The last match for them was a cup match against Bayer Leverkusen and they lost that match with a scoreline of 3-1. They are only six points behind seventh placed Wolfsburg. And they are 8 points above the relegation play-off spot.
Considering that they are just 6 points behind seventh placed Wolfsburg, which is a European competition slot, Union Berlin will give their best against FC Bayern and would try to climb upto that seventh place.
