HOPING FOR A STUMBLE
Bayern Munich striker Mario Gomez has said that Bayern Munich need Borussia Dortmund to stumble on the league in order to have a chance of winning the title this season. Despite being extraordinarily good during the initial parts of the season, Bayern Munich have slipped behind Borussia Dortmund in the table.
They are now two points behind Borussia Dortmund in the table. Despite this slender advantage, Bayern Munich striker Mario Gomez has conceded that it would be tough to win the league is Borussia Dortmund maintain their current form. Both teams have played 21 games each, but Borussia Dortmund have 46 points compared to the 44 points of Bayern Munich. Both teams are relatively similar in terms of the goal difference.
Mario Gomez was once again inspirational for Bayern Munich in the match against Kaiserslautern. His goal was essential in Bayern Munich getting the 2-0 win over Kaiserslautern. Now, the German striker has secured 18 goals in just 20 matches for Bayern Munich, which has also put him as the top scorer in the division. Bayern Munich will also have one eye on the Champions League as well. They will be facing FC Basel in the last 16 of the Champions League, which will be beginning shortly.
“Winning was the important thing. We have to keep it up now and obviously, we have to hope Dortmund slip up,” said Gomez. Borussia Dortmund, on the other hand, have been nothing but spectacular since the start of the New Year. Their last defeat came in December of 2011. This spectacular form has been one of the reasons for their climb up the table. Now, they have the opportunity to win the German Bundesliga ahead of Bayern Munich, who were the undoubted favourites during the early part of the campaign.
