Peter Bosz, who led Ajax to the Europa League Final last season, is the man charged in 2017-18 with the task of trying to end Bayern Munich’s continued dominance of the Bundesliga.

In only a single campaign with Ajax, the former Netherlands international midfielder took the Amsterdam club all the way to the Europa League decider against Manchester United – their first continental final for 21 years, albeit they were beaten 2-0 in Stockholm.

Soon after that achievement Bosz was appointed as Borussia Dortmund’s coach to replace Thomas Tuchel, who led the club to the DFB-Pokal in 2017 but fell out with the board and finished 10 and 18 points respectively behind Bayern in his two seasons at the helm.

Bosz did not win the Eredivisie with Ajax, missing out by one point to Feyenoord, and must now try to launch a concerted challenge to Bayern who have been German champions for five years in a row since Dortmund’s back-to-back triumphs under Jurgen Klopp.

Carlo Ancelotti picked up where Pep Guardiola had left off by winning last season’s Bundesliga with 15 points to spare, although that was the only major trophy for the Italian and his squad as they lost in the DFB-Pokal to Dortmund and the Champions League to Real Madrid.

The bookmakers believe it will be something of a formality that the club nicknamed FC Hollywood stretch their number of consecutive titles to six, with Bosz’s recent record suggesting his expertise is in European rather than domestic football.

Elsewhere, although they could not perform a Leicester City-like feat and become champions, RB Leipzig still exceeded all expectations by far last season when finishing second in the table straight after being promoted and staying in reasonable touch with Bayern until the final month of the campaign.

They are not short of money to strengthen their squad and have been made third favourites for the Bundesliga, although it remains to be seen how they cope juggling domestic commitments with Champions League group-stage football.

Of the remainder, Bayer Leverkusen and Schalke only finished in mid-table last time around but are expected by the bookmakers to fare better this term, ahead of Borussia Monchengladbach and Hoffenheim.
