The Borussia Monchengladbach defender says the favorites to win the title are Borussia Dortmund, but he cannot rule out Bayern Munich.

Borussia Monchengladbach is having a spectacular season.

The German Bundesliga side is currently in the second position of the table with 41 points, seven behind leaders Borussia Dortmund.

They are followed by the same points but less goal difference by Bayer Munich.

And for Gladbach defender Matthias Ginter, the leaders are favorite to win the title, but he can never rule out the Bavarians.

“I think BVB is widely seen as the favorites for the title,” he told the Bundesliga official website.

“You can’t rule out Bayern, though. They have so much quality, but I’ll be surprised if Dortmund doesn’t win it.”

“We’ve all earned it. We want to keep going, but there are no easy games in the Bundesliga,” he said about the new found respect the team has.

Robert Lewandowski wins Bundesliga Goal of the Month award

Robert Lewandowski's brilliant acrobatic effort at SC Freiburg has earned him March's Bundesliga Goal of the Month prize.

“Now we have to turn our attention to the game against Hertha. It’ll be tough as we know from our previous meeting.”

“We’ll have to wait and see. We’ve got games against Hertha, Frankfurt, Wolfsburg, and Bayern to come,” he said about the chance to participate in the UEFA Champions League next year.

“It’s not the easiest run of fixtures. It could look a lot different for us after that. We’re enjoying it right now, but it’s too early to make those kinds of forecasts.”

“Frankfurt has insane quality, so do Leipzig – and Dortmund and Bayern,” he continued.

“Champions League qualification will go down to the wire, it’s going to be really tight. We’re trying to focus on ourselves and continue to improve – as we have in the last few months. Then we’ll see what comes at the end of it.”
