The Bundesliga Makes History!


On the latest episode of the Bundesliga Connection, DW Sports correspondent Kres Harrington breaks down the UCL group stage, in which five Bundesliga teams are taking part, and the league's excitement is a hot topic of discussion! Only on the #SLPodcast!

The Bundesliga will have five teams representing it in the Champions League this time around. The top four from the 2021/22 season (Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, Bayern Leverkusen, and RB Leipzig) gained automatic qualification.

The team that claimed the fifth spot finished 11th on the table but were victors in the 2021/22 UEFA Europa League so the Eagles of Eintracht Frankfurt complete the list.

While other leagues over the years have had five teams in the UCL, this is a great moment for the Bundesliga!

A rare Bayern Munich draw, Leipzig getting thrashed 4-0 by Frankfurt, Freiburg overcoming Bayer Leverkusen… This past matchday was evident enough that the German top flight is not as boring as it has been perceived to be.

There have been surprising results aplenty, and according to DW Sports correspondent and German football expert Kres Harrington, this season is going to bring a lot of excitement!
