2022/23 Bundesliga Prediction: Exciting Championship Battle In Coming?


Borussia Dortmund, RB Leipzig, and Bayer Leverkusen, appear prepared to unleash an assault on Bayern Munich.

Will Bayern Munich win their 11th straight Bundesliga championship and repeat as league champions? Borussia Dortmund, RB Leipzig, and Bayer Leverkusen are all incredibly well-prepared to steal the Meisterschale away from Munich, therefore the champions are facing their toughest challenge in years.

Some Bundesliga supporters are unaware of any champions but Bayern, whose dominance of German soccer for ten years is a feat never before accomplished in one of Europe's top five leagues. By finishing eight points ahead of Dortmund last season, Julian Nagelsmann led them to their tenth straight championship.

Since entering the Bundesliga in 2016, Leipzig has been one of their biggest opponents, and Leverkusen has a history of coming agonizingly close to winning the title with teams that were less talented than their current one. BVB has been their biggest competitor for more than ten years.


Bayern won the Meisterschale for the 10th consecutive year.

Three clubs are no longer content to watch as the champs win another championship.

In a recent interview with Bild, Dortmund's CEO and head of the DFL's supervisory board Hans-Joachim Watzke expressed enthusiasm for the next campaign: "What I can promise is that some clubs will do everything for an exciting title race. That includes Borussia Dortmund. It also includes Leipzig and Leverkusen.“

Large-scale transfer window for Dortmund

The significant transfers made by BVB during the summer transfer window provide as evidence for Watzke's assertion. With the addition of Germany internationals Niklas Süle and Nico Schlotterbeck in central defense, Karim Adeyemi and Sebastien Haller up attack, and Turkey international Salih zcan in midfield, Die Schwarzgelben have immediately strengthened their lineup from back to front.

"I intentionally signed a long-term deal because I’m convinced we’ll be an exciting team that will also be capable of competing for and winning titles in the medium term with the support of the fantastic Dortmund fans."


For the 2022–23 season, Borussia Dortmund has improved throughout the roster.

The 2021/22 season was a letdown for the black and yellow team, despite the fact that they placed second previous term. A new coach, Edin Terzic, who led the team to its last championship with the 2021 DFB Cup as temporary manager, has been brought in as part of the reset for the next campaign.

The five-time Bundesliga winners must become legitimate championship challengers once more, according to his plan. You get the impression that he's been given the necessary resources, but he still needs to make them work over the whole 34 matchdays, which is something we haven't seen from great Borussia teams since Jürgen Klopp's era.

Key figures still at Leverkusen and Leipzig

Even though Leverkusen won't publicly discuss a title drive, they do have a team that might have a say.

Last season, Die Werkself finished third, just five points behind Dortmund, despite doing so without prodigy Florian Wirtz for the most of 2022 due to cruciate ligament damage. However, the 19-year-old recently signed a contract extension and is anticipated to return within a few months after recording seven goals and 10 assists in 24 Bundesliga appearances last season.


In addition, like Wirtz, leading scorer Patrik Schick has signed a new contract that will keep him at the BayArena through 2027. The Czech striker led Erling Haaland and was the second-highest scorer in the Bundesliga after Robert Lewandowski with 24 goals last season.

Moussa Diaby will want to keep up his form, especially with a spot in France's FIFA World Cup team up for grabs. He was one of just two players to surpass double digits in goals (13) and assists (12) in 2021–2022.

The addition of highly regarded young Czech attacker Adam Hlozek to the Leverkusen squad has increased competition, while Sardar Azmoun has had a full year to adjust to life in the Bundesliga.

Even manager Gerardo Seoane, who has already led Die Werkself back to the UEFA Champions League for the first time since 2019, has had a season to adjust. He must now continue to motivate the group.

Domenico Tedesco in Leipzig experiences the same thing. Following his mid-season arrival at the Red Bull Arena, he did marvels, saving their season with a fourth-place finish and the first trophy in the club's history after winning the DFB Cup. The week before the start of the Bundesliga season, they will face Bayern in the season-opening Supercup, giving us an early opportunity to gauge their progress for 2022–23.

And like Leverkusen, they have kept and extended the services of Christopher Nkunku, their crucial player. The international player from France signed a new contract that runs until 2026 as a result of his 20 goals and 13 assists, which helped him win the Bundesliga's Player of the Season award.


A new contract at the club has been offered to Christopher Nkunku in recognition of his assistance in RB Leipzig's DFB Cup victory in 2021–2022.

Xaver Schlager from Wolfsburg is the only major addition they have made thus far in the transfer market, but it's possible they believe they have a team in Leipzig that is mature and experienced enough, and now has that trophy-winning vibe, to take that next step in the league.

The one minor issue with that Munich club remains, though. "Bayern have to offer these clubs periods of weakness," Watzke added. These have occurred recently, but no team has moved up to take advantage of them.

Instead, the champions have bolstered their team with the additions of Sadio Mane from Liverpool, Matthijs de Ligt from Juventus, Ryan Gravenberch and Noussair Mazraoui from Ajax, as well as Mathys Tel, a youngster from Rennes, to try to prevent any slippage.


In the 2022 Supercup, Sadio Mane, a newcomer to Bayern Munich, made a memorable debut.

Bayern is under pressure, but they thrive in that environment. They know one of Dortmund, Leverkusen, or Leipzig - or maybe even a surprise contender (think Wolfsburg in 2008/09) - will be there to pounce if they don't get it right, but they appear to be up against competition from several directions this season.
