Will Bayern Munich face serious competition as they march toward another league title?
Stats Perform AI has forecasted the upcoming Bundesliga season as Bayern hope to clinch their 11th consecutive title.
The Bavarians have an 84.93% chance of claiming the title, which is the highest across all of Europe’s top-five leagues.
Borussia Dortmund follow their arch-rivals with a possibility of only 6.01% to win the title.
Predictions for Champions League spots have also seen regular contenders edge out their domestic opponents.
Bayern have a 99.53% chance of finishing in the top-four, with Dortmund (76.78%), RB Leipzig (72.2%) and Leverkusen (62.98%) following them on the table.
This would see Germany send the same representatives to the Champions League as the current season. However, Stats Perform has predicted Leipzig will leapfrog Leverkusen for the third spot this season.
Similar to the last season, the competition for the Europa League spots will be harder to predict.
Stats Perform backs Monchengladbach and Eintracht Frankfurt to replace Union Berlin and Freiburg on the league’s fifth and sixth spots, respectively.
The AI has predicted Schalke will face another difficult relegation battle after returning to Bundesliga this season.
The Royal Blues have a higher chance of finishing 16th, which would send them to relegation play-offs.
The AI predicts Werder Bremen will return to Bundesliga 2 after finishing the season in the 17th spot.
