The magical Bundesliga: the top nine teams qualify for the Champions League, the bottom eight avoid relegation


The Bundesliga already presents a situation in which almost half of the teams qualify for the Champions League and almost half need to avoid relegation.Apart from bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund at the top of the table, fourth-placed League Berlin have just 34 points.The five teams behind them are only three points adrift of the Berlin league.Fifth-placed Freiburg have 33 points, while sixth-placed Cologne have 32, leaving Leipzig, Hoffenheim and Eintracht Frankfurt with 31.The bundesliga’s top half could be transformed by a narrow margin of victory and just one game away.Because there are only three points between them, that means all nine teams are theoretically eligible to play in the Champions League.Third-placed Bayer Leverkusen have 38 points, four points ahead of fourth-placed Union Berlin.The team is strong in attack and has been in excellent form this season.It is no accident that so many mid-table teams pile up between the fourth and ninth spots.The likes of Leipzig, who are hampered by three fronts, a lack of depth and a lack of superstars, have not been as good as the likes of Bayern Munich in terms of absolute strength this season, despite the impact of Henrik Nkunku.So when the team shows signs of fatigue they lose or draw.That’s going to distance the integral.Hoffenheim and Eintracht Frankfurt both have high quality attacking players in Kramaric or Kostich, but are still not ready to qualify for the Champions League.Hoffenheim belongs to the strong team to beat blood, met the weak team to send warm nerve knife team, so the ranking is up and down.Eintracht eintracht’s top star Aleksandr Kostich and Japan’s Dadi Kamada both made it clear before the start of the season that they wanted to leave, which also affected the team’s form, so the team lost its previous momentum.Wolfsburg, who played in the Champions League this season, were stunned to be ruled out of the German cup for making an extra man.The team finished last in the Champions League.This season wolfsburg tired all show, also do not have the momentum of a strong team.At present in the bottom half of the table, filte basically locked relegation places, second from the bottom Stuttgart still struggle momentum.Third-bottom Fc Augsburg have 22 points, ahead of 11th-placed fc Bochum on 25 points, just one win behind them.That said, a mid-table team could be just one game away from dropping into the relegation zone.The bottom eight teams face the practical problem of avoiding relegation.Because under Bundesliga rules, the third-bottom team has to play a two-legged relegation play-off.That leaves the top nine teams in the Champions League and the bottom eight needing to avoid relegation.The only team left wanting nothing seems to be tenth-placed Mainz, who have 30 points after 21 games.This is not necessarily a good thing in the Bundesliga.Bayern Munich in first place and Borussia Dortmund in second place are strong, the rest of the teams are essentially six of a dozen, not absolutely crushing level of strength.The league would be less competitive, with teams between third and sixth not having enough healthy competition, which might not be good for the league as a whole.
