We need to discuss how the only German club that can face Bayern Munich this season, is none other than Borussia Dortmund. 

Bayern Munich just got back in the fight for the Bundesliga title, and only Borussia Dortmund has the power to stop them.

The Bavarian club wasn’t even in the Top 3 a month ago, but they quickly got back to the conversation.

RB Leipzig lost a unique opportunity to remain at the top after their draw against Borussia Monchengladbach from last Saturday.

This was the chance that Bayern had been looking to assault the top of the table.

They defeated Mainz with a 3-1 result, and claimed the top spot.

The leader has a one-point advantage with the second place.

RB Leipzig is set to visit Bayern Munich next Sunday, and they have low chances of winning this game.

Just like it happens every single year in recent seasons, the Bavarians are starting to look unstoppable.

But this Bundesliga season has one hope for a different outcome, they are wearing black and yellow all the time.

We are obviously talking about Borussia Dortmund, one of the hottest clubs in Europe right now.

This squad has matured enough to be considered a real threat to any club in European football. 

Sancho and Haaland are on at the wheel. 

During the current season in all competitions, Borussia Dortmund already performed a fantastic season so far.

They held their own against FC Barcelona during the early stages of the competition.

This squad has some of the most exciting new talents in the world right now.

We already know how magnificent Jadon Sancho is, he has done impressive work this season.

In fact, he just became the youngest Bundesliga player to reach 25 goals in the competition.

His greatest virtue is not to score goals, but to provide them. Sancho is the best assist provider in Europe at the moment with 11 of them.

But the young Englishman was dangerously close to leaving, and Dortmund needed to do something.

They busted a true ace from under their sleeve with their most recent transfer directly from Austria.

They somehow managed to convince Erling Braut Haaland to join their squad, and they also convinced Sancho to stay with this move.

A brilliant strategy from the Borussia Dortmund board of directors. The sky is the limit for these two young players. 

Haaland will become legendary. 

This Erling Haaland kid is Borussia Dortmund’s wildcard without a doubt.

His success seemed almost inevitable even before he got to Germany.

We actually thought he would choose a different club from a more competitive tournament.

But Haaland had his own agenda to follow, this kid is doing everything right with his career development.

We didn’t expect him to make such a massive splash this quickly, but Haaland has his own incredible pace.

It took him only three matches to convince Lucien Favre that he is the real deal. He played his first two from the bench and scored five goals.

Last Saturday, Haaland scored another brace on his first start for his new club.

If these two kids don’t scare Bayern Munich by now, I really don’t know what to tell you.

They are the only ones who pose a real threat to the Bavarian club’s rule in German football.

Not even Timo Werner and his goals instill fear as Sancho and Haaland do.
