Borussia Dortmund regularly has the highest average audience in Europe and also sells the most season tickets in Germany. Numerous prominent names such as Matthias Sammer, Frank Mill, Stefan Reuter, Jürgen Kohler, Andreas Möller wore the Dortmund jersey and also celebrated great successes with the German national team.

Like Borussia Dortmund, Borussia Mönchengladbach is one of the most renowned clubs in the German Bundesliga, with the club celebrating its greatest successes in the 1970s. Between 1970 and 1977 Gladbach won the national championship five times and the DFB Cup twice in 1974 and 1978. The “foal eleven” (german: “Fohlenelf”) also made a name for itself at international level in the 1970s, being UEFA Cup winners in 1975 and 1979. In the European Cup of national champions in the 1976-77 season they advanced to the final, but had to surrender to Liverpool FC there. With Günther Netzer, Berti Vogts, Jupp Heynckes and Rainer Bonhof, the club produced numerous well-known players, with footballers such as Lothar Matthäus, Stefan Effenberg, Uwe Kamps and Oliver Neuville standing out in later times. Even if the successes from the 1970s are long ago, Borussia Mönchengladbach continues to inspire with an offensive and dynamic style of play.

» Bet on Schalke 04 now

FC Schalke 04 is probably one of the best known of the so-called “working-class clubs”. The Schalke fans from the Ruhr area do not visit their team in order to see technically fine game in the first place, but expect their players to fight for every inch. “Work football” is the club’s motto and virtues such as physical strength and commitment traditionally are in the foreground. FC Schalke 04 celebrated its greatest successes during the Nazi era, as the club won the German championship six times between 1934 and 1942. In 1997, the “miners” (german: “Knappen”) celebrated their greatest international success when they beat Inter Milan in the UEFA Cup final. FC Schalke 04 had exceptional footballers in their squad in every era of their club’s history. In the 1930s Fritz Szepan and Ernst Kuzorra shaped the midfield of the royal blues, in the 1970s goalie Norbert Nigbur, sweeper Rolf Rüssmann and striker Klaus Fischer are remembered. Olaf Thon, Marc Wilmots and Ingo Anderbrügge played a large part in the UEFA Cup win against Inter, and more recently, legionnaires like Spaniard legend Raúl have provided great scenes and murmurs in the stands. Huub Stevens shaped the club as a coach and Rudi Assauer, who unfortunately died too early, will be remembered by many football fans as Schalke manager.

» Bet on RB Leipzig now

Red Bull tried unsuccessfully to buy or at least participate in FC St. Pauli, Fortuna Düsseldorf and 1860 Munich and then founded the independent club RB Leipzig in mid-2009. The abbreviation RB does not stand for Red Bull in Germany, but for RasenBallsport, because DFB does not usually approve advertising in the club’s name. The club from the Mateschitz empire started a march and rose between 2009 and 2016 from the Oberliga Nordost to the German Bundesliga, where it was possible to establish itself in the upper table regions from the start. Just like the somewhat older sister club from Salzburg, Leipzig also relies on an intensive way of playing, which is characterized by pressing and counterpressing, as well as a lot of pace in all playing situations. Due to their healthy financial situation thanks to the big and only sponsor, RB Leipzig will remain a constant in German football in upcoming years and the top clubs will have to adjust to a new challenger in the championship fight in the long term.

Bayer 04 Leverkusen is an exception to the 50 + 1 rule in Germany: Bayer AG benefited from the exception due to its longstanding support of the club. The club rose to the German Bundesliga in 1979 and has always been first class since then. While the “Werkself” (german for “factory eleven” or “plant eleven”) are still waiting for a championship title at national level, they celebrated winning the UEFA Cup in 1988 and made it to the 2002 Champions League final, when they narrowly lost 2-1 to Real Madrid. Expectations among Bayer fans are traditionally high, but the team has the image of the “Eternal Second”, which is also reflected in the nickname “Vice-Kusen”. Between 1997 and 2011, the works club finished the table in second place five times. Rudi Völler, Michael Ballack, Ulf Kirsten and the Brazilian Lúcio are just a few of the well-known names that wore the Bayer 04 Leverkusen shirt.

The Revierderby (german for “discrict derby”) is the meeting of the two largest clubs from the Ruhr area. The two cities of Dortmund and Gelsenkirchen are only around 35 kilometers apart, so that supporters of the two clubs often meet in everyday life. The great rivalry between the two clubs only emerged after the Second World War, since before that FC Schalke 04 was too superior to Dortmund to make it a great rivalry. However, this changed as early as 1947 when Borussia Dortmund won the Westphalia Championship. Due to the geographical proximity, the two clubs have some things in common.

Both clubs are traditionally workers’ clubs and define themselves through the same virtues as heart, passion and commitment, which is often reflected in the thrilling district derbies.

Great atmosphere at ‘BVB’

In view of these pictures from the Dortmund South Stand, you can understand that the electrifying emotions can be easily transferred from the stands to the players on the pitch.

FC Bayern Munich – Borussia Dortmund: Betting on the “German Clásico”

The duels between FC Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund are among the most exciting things the German Bundesliga has had to offer in recent decades. The rivalry between the clubs developed in the mid-1990s, when BVB won the championship twice in succession and was often the biggest competitor of Bayern Munich in the subsequent years.

Since the duels between the two teams are often decisive for the championship, the emotions go extremely high and in the past the players repeatedly lost control over their behavior.

The former Bayern goalkeeper Oliver Kahn is famous for two unsightly actions in encounters against Borussia Dortmund. In the 1998-99 season he took boxer Mike Tyson as a role model and bit Heiko Herrlich in the face. He also attacked BVB striker Stephane Chapuisat with a kung fu kick after the referee interrupted the game. The scene between Lothar Matthäus and Andreas Möller is also unforgettable – the Bayern player stepped in front of the Dortmund midfielder and wiped imaginary tears from his face after Möller unsuccessfully claimed a free kick. The crybaby image followed the Dortmund player throughout his career.

Although the Rhineland Derby – also called “Rheinisches Derby” in german – is rarely about the championship title, the rivalry between the supporters of the two teams is incredibly high. Both teams are traditional clubs, which were defined in their founding years by the respective city derbies. The Gladbachers met the Rheydter Spielverein, the 1. FC Köln played the derbies against Fortuna Köln. In the times of the Bundesliga, however, these city derbies ceased to exist, so the big rivalries shifted outside the city limits. Gladbach and Cologne are only 60 kilometers apart and both teams can count on a large following. Otherwise, the clubs have some parallels, because both clubs were not always successful in the top division and also met in the second division. In recent years in particular, rivalry between fans has grown and the police has had a lot to do with the derbies. From a sporting point of view, Borussia Mönchengladbach fans have often had reason to celebrate in the past, as the club clearly has a better record in the direct duels against Cologne.

Since RB Leipzig has only been involved in the German Bundesliga for a relatively short period of time, there are no traditional duels with Leipzig participation. However, this does not mean that there can be no tension in the top matches between FC Bayern Munich and RB Leipzig – on the contrary, this duel between the old top team and the new unusual challenger guarantees hot and intense 90 minutes. Both teams stand for a modern and apace style of play and practice exciting attacking football, which is characterized by numerous goals simply because of the individual quality of the players. In the past, RB Leipzig was primarily defined by pressing and a direct style of play, while Bayern Munich traditionally likes to control their games and rely on possession. Football in Germany will be shaped by this young duel for many years to come – no matter how one feels about the Leipzig business model.

Stadiums of German Bundesliga

Of all top leagues in Europe, German Bundesliga has the highest attendance average, which is primarily due to the huge and modern stadiums. On average, the venues are quite large and extremely busy, especially since fans like to flock to the arenas, as they are mostly modern and easily accessible. Another factor in the stadium’s high capacity utilization is the fairly moderate admission price in international comparison. Fans in Germany, in particular, have to file far less for entry than in English Premier League.

  1. Signal Iduna Park – the stadium with the largest capacity. BVB is at home here, and at Borussia Dortmund’s home games 81,365 fans find their place
  2. The Allianz Arena – up to 75,024 spectators watch the games of FC Bayern Munich

Both clubs have an occupancy rate of 100%.

The most successful clubs

FC Bayern Munich is the most successful Bundesliga club in Germany and has won the championship 29 times to date, with only one championship win before the German Bundesliga was founded in 1963. If you exclude the champions of the GDR, 1. FC Nürnberg follows with nine titles, whereby fans have had to wait for a championship win already since 1968. Borussia Dortmund, FC Schalke 04 and Hamburger SV follow on the next places.

Current balance of power

FC Bayern Munich has been the measure of all things for many years and won the championship seven times in a row between the 2012-13 and 2018-19 seasons. Before that, Dortmund crowned champion in 2010-11 and was one of the few teams in Germany to defend the title the following year. In the German Bundesliga, only FC Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, Hamburger SV and Borussia Mönchengladbach managed to defend their title. Every now and then there have been runaways in the last decades and a team crowned champion with which one could not expect before the season. Wolfsburg achieved this in 2008-09 thanks to the famous attacking duo Grafite and Dzeko, two years earlier a young Stuttgart team around Sami Khedira and Mario Gómez surprisingly managed to win the title. These “anomalies” have become increasingly rare in the recent past due to the strong dominance of FC Bayern Munich. It will be interesting to see to what extent RB Leipzig can change the current balance of power in upcoming years.

The record players of the German Bundesliga

Karl-Heinz Körbel has led the list of players with the most Bundesliga appearances since 1990. The former sweeper was a particularly loyal footballer, as he made all 602 Bundesliga appearances for Eintracht Frankfurt. In second place comes the former defender of Hamburger SV Manfred Kaltz, who made 581 appearances and became famous above all as the “inventor” of curving crosses with which he mostly fed Horst Hrubesch. Third place is former world-class goalkeeper Oliver Kahn, who has played 557 times in the German Bundesliga, playing 429 games for FC Bayern Munich and 128 games for Karlsruher SC.

The best goalscorers in the Bundesliga

The “Bomber of the Nation”, Gerd Müller, is in first place among the record scorers in the German Bundesliga. Between 1965 and 1979, the striker scored an impressive 365 championship goals for FC Bayern Munich in 427 games. In second place comes Klaus Fischer, an attacker who divided his 268 goals between four clubs. He scored the most goals for FC Schalke 04 (182). For 1.
