Bayern Munich have imposed themselves in the Bundesliga as the invincible not in terms of avoiding defeats but their eight consecutive conquest of the League that ramps up to 30 German Championship in the club’s 120 year history. And to the delight of the club’s fanbase, they are currently top of the log after a great performance last week, the Munich odds to win the Bundesliga are now an average of -1538, shortened from -812 last month
Before Bayern Munich won the League eight times in a row, no other club has ever won the title more than three times consecutively. The German Championship was founded in the year 1963 and there have been 57 campaigns since then but the dominant Bayern have won more than half of the titles with 29 for them in bag.
It is not rocket science that the Bavarians have won the league a record number of times, the hierarchy have ensured change and appointment of managers when necessary. Consequently, they have also put together a title winning squad with depth, and their transfer policy has really worked for them more than anything else.
Despite have an otherwise world class team, they strengthened all aspects of their squad with top class players last summer, with players including Leroy Sane from Manchester City, Douglas Costa from Juventus, Bouna Sarr from Marseille, Marc Roca from Espanyol, Alexander Nubel from Schalke 04 and Eric Maxim Choupo-Motin from PSG joining the fold.

This continuous and deliberate reinforcement of their squad continue to put them in prime position for conquest, and it is no surprise that they are currently top of the Bundesliga log and one of the favorites to nick the title. Anything less than the winning the title will greatly disappoint the fans who are used to winning.
In terms of personnel, like we earlier said, they have several players to choose from but the potency of Lewandowksi in front of goal is worth taking a swipe at.
Since he switched Borrussia Dortmund for Bayern Munich in the summer of 2014, Lewandowski has topped the goal scorer’s chart of the Bundesliga bar the 2014/15 season when he was beaten to it by Pierre Emerick Aubameyang who is now an Arsenal player. Yet, the Polish striker is proven instrumental to their campaign this season with six goals in 11 games, ramping up a record 173 league goals in 196 games since his debut.
Many have argued that Lewandowski is deserving of a FIFA award and if he stays fit, he’d continued to be a handful for defenders despite the fact that he has surpassed the twilight of his career.
