GERMAN IS BEST LEAGUE
The Bayern Munich striker Mario Gomez has said that he feels that the German league is right now the best league across Europe due to the performances of the German club’s in the Premier European competition – the Champions League. This season the competition has been dominated by the German clubs like Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund. Despite being an extremely tough groups, both these clubs have been able to dominate their respective groups and come out of them as the winners. This coupled with the failure of the English Premier league has made Gomez believes that the German league is the best right now.
After losing out on the title for the last two seasons, Bayern Munich are now the favourites to lift the Bundesliga title this season. They are already 11 points ahead of their nearest rival in the table, as they have managed to go into the Christmas break with one hand on the title already. However, Gomez has said that the players should not be complacent when the second half of the season begins after a short break. Aside from the Bavarian Giants, Schalke have also qualified for the last 16 stage of the Champions League. Bayern Munich currently have 41 points from the 16 matches played so far in the competition.
“All [three German teams] deserved to win their groups. It’s nice to see that the Bundesliga is alive and catching up with the very best leagues. In terms of strength across the board, I’d even say it’s the best at the moment. The top teams are all performing strongly in Europe,” said Mario Gomez. The striker was extremely influential for Bayern Munich in the recent win over Augsburg. After missing out on the early part of the campaign, the striker is back fit and ready for the rest of the season.
