After 20 of the 34 games played in the 2018/19 season, the table third instead receives the current twelfth of the Bundesliga.

If only because there are two teams here who, together with Borussia Dortmund, have the highest number of fans in the Beletage of German football.

Although the Bayern won in the end 3-2 after extra time in Berlin and recovered on the one hand from the early deficit and on the other hand from the bitter goal to 2: 2 draw, once again a major mistake of an established player – in this case world champion Mats Hummels – had gone ahead.
