For the eighth consecutive crown, the top-flight seems destined to arrive at the Allianz Arena in the coming weeks. With Bayern again setting unprecedented standards in terms of performance and consistency.
Bayern Munich dominance is “Boring and Sad”
The dominance of Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga is “boring and sad,” say Arsenal and Germany’s goalkeeper, Bernd Leno. For the eighth consecutive crown, the top-flight seems destined to arrive at the Allianz Arena in the coming weeks. With Bayern again setting unprecedented standards in terms of performance and consistency. At the moment, on the side of Hansi Flick are seven points clear of Borussia Dortmund at the top of the league. And their last coronation will be confirmed if they gain two victories from their final four. Bayern have been in electrified form since restarting the Bundesliga on March 18. Achieving a maximum of points from five games, including comfortable wins over Dortmund and Bayer Leverkusen.
The Bavarians are expected to extend their winning race when they play host Borussia Monchengladbach on Saturday. Still, Leno believes that their recent success counts on little due to the lack of competition in Germany’s highest echelons.
Bayern are already champions
“Bayern is already a champion, as always. It is boring and sad,” said Leno, who spent seven years at Leverkusen before moving to Emirates Stadium in 2018. “I want an exciting championship fight, but I don’t see a single exciting championship shortly. Bayern are too strong there.” For the past two seasons, Leno took first place at Arsenal, having played 65 matches for the club in all competitions. The 28-year-old added about his decision to move to the Premier League: “I wanted to go abroad, London is a metropolis for me.” The ex-Leverkusen is currently training with the rest of the Gunners before returning to the Premier League on June 17.
Arsenal are first time in history when English football returns after a three-month hiatus associated with coronavirus, with a trip to Etihad Stadium to meet with Manchester City on the cards next Wednesday. Mikel Arteta’s squad will need to finish the season hard to secure a place in the first four, sliding down to ninth place in the standings before stopping the game in March. Chelsea holds the final position of the Champions League, eight points above Arsenal, with nine matches remaining.
