Bundesliga is the top flight of German football and a competition that is enjoying a renaissance, capturing increased attention throughout the world as the quality of its teams and players continues to rise.
Some of the best-known clubs on the planet are mainstays of the Bundesliga and the names of Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund and Borussia Monchengladbach in particular are known all over the globe.
Easily the most successful club in the history of the Bundesliga, which dates back only to 1963, are Bayern Munich who have captured the league winner’s trophy on 25 occasions – five times as many as the second most frequent champions, Borussia Monchengladbach and Borussia Dortmund.
Nicknamed FC Hollywood because of the amount of press coverage the club and its players receives, Bayern dominate the football landscape in Germany and go into every season as prime contenders not only for the Bundesliga title but also the UEFA Champions League.
In recent years, a rivalry has developed with Borussia Dortmund, all of whose five Bundesliga title triumphs have come since 1995, and increasingly star players have swapped one club for the other, often leaving Bayern for BVB if their prospects of first-team football were diminishing.
However, with Leicester City having shown in England how it can be done, there is room in Germany for a surprise package to burst onto the scene and shock the established challengers with RB Leipzig proving a very strong force to be reckoned with following promotion.
You have the chance to watch every single Bundesliga match throughout the course of a season via the live streaming services available with the online bookmakers, provided you have an account containing funds or have placed a bet within the preceding 24 hours.
It means that every week you can watch top-class players in action, including Bayern Munich superstars Thomas Muller, Robert Lewandowski, Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery plus Borussia Dortmund’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Marco Reus and Shinji Kagawa.
