SportsTalk, October 31st, Matthaus stated in his “Kicker” column that Leverkusen is Bayern Munich’s title rival this season.
In previous years, Bayern’s biggest competitor in the Bundesliga was often Dortmund, but Leverkusen’s performance this year is eye-catching, and Matthaus Wrote: “In my opinion, Leverkusen is Bayern’s biggest opponent this year.”
“This is not a short-term Project, Leverkusen’s lineup components have done a good job, they have done a very consistent and stable job in this regard, and I think in the long run, Leverkusen can replace Dortmund as the number two team in Germany.”
The competition in the Bundesliga is fierce this season. In addition to Bayern and Bayer Leverkusen, Stuttgart, Dortmund and Red Bull Leipzig also performed well. Matthaus was satisfied and said: “Unlike in the past, Bayern’s competitors have barely lost points this season, and every team is full of confidence.”
