The German Bundesliga race is between Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund, and for Axel Witsel, the title will be decided on the game between the two sides in April.

Bayern Munich is at the top of the German Bundesliga table with 57 points followed very closely by Borussia Dortmund with the same number of points but a lesser goal difference.

And with nine games left on the 2018-2019 season, everything will be decided on one game: Bayern vs Dortmund on April 6th at least according to Borussia midfielder Axel Witsel.

“We have to take it game by game,” Witsel told the Bundesliga official website.

“We have to stay tight with Bayern until we go to Munich – after that we’ll see who’s top.”

“For me, it doesn’t matter,” he added.

“I think they’ve scored more goals than us but we have the same points and we need to stay tight before we go to Munich. We have two or three games before that. We’ll take it game by game and then we’ll see.”

“We’re still in the race with nine more games to go. Not everything went our way over the last few weeks, we were missing a bit of luck, we had a lot of opportunities we didn’t score. Today we scored three goals so I think this is really positive for the future,” he continued.

“It wasn’t easy, especially when we started the game. It was crazy weather today, a lot of wind, rain but in the end, we played a good game.”

Weston McKennie talks about his accelerated development at Schalke

USA international Weston McKennie talks about his Schalke career and the progress he's made over the past two years.

“We showed good fighting spirit and I think it’s what we needed,” he said.

“We didn’t give up. We kept pushing ourselves to come back in the game but you know it’s always like this when you have a lot of possession, you always have to look out for the counter, on a free-kick, on a corner.”

“The five minutes after you concede are the most important five minutes. It’s then that you have to be more focused in my opinion. But then we pushed ourselves, scored two more goals, and the victory today was very important,” he concluded.
