MOST COMMENTED

Bayern Munich President Uli Hoeness, whose team has already won the Bundesliga and maintains a 20-point gap over second-place Borussia Dortmund, says there has been “a huge dip in the competitiveness” of the German league in recent seasons, making it too easy for his club and Dortmund, which won the league last year.

"There has been a huge dip in the competitiveness of the league and we can't be happy with that," Hoeness told Kicker magazine. "We've got to analyze why that is the case." He suggested that Germany does not want to see its league end up like Spain’s La Liga, where Barcelona and Real Madrid dominate. "We see the need for action," he said. "It is not on that we see such results."

Bayern lifted the title with six games to spare and has a plus-70 goal difference after 29 games. Unsurprisingly, the Bavarian giant is set to smash all kinds of German records. Meanwhile, Dortmund has an eight-point gap over third-place Bayer Leverkusen and has scored 72 goals itself, which is almost 20 more than any team below it.
