And Borussia Dortmund occupied their closest competitor in 2022, by 12 points, in second place. Julian Nagelsmann led the Bavarian team to its 31st league title, getting its second title.
Previously, he also led Bayern Munich to win the German Super Cup. Nagelsmann is one of the best young coaches in the world and he will get better with time.

Furthermore, with such a powerful squad at his disposal, it was no wonder that they made a formidable pair. Now that the title is officially secured, the focus is turning to summer and what comes next.
In addition, Bayern are very close to signing super talented 19-year-old Ryan Gravenburch from Ajax to bolster their midfield. More signings will definitely be on the way soon.
Bayern Munich – the road to the Bundesliga champion
The most remarkable thing that Bayern Munich did before the start of the season was with the transfer activity. Bayern have bought center back Dayot Uppicano and midfielder Marcel Sabitzer. These moves had great benefits. First, Bayern balanced the departures of David Alaba and Jerome Boateng in defence.
Here’s how Ryan Gravenberch fits in with Bayern’s midfield and makes them even more intimidating
Second, he severely undercut last season’s runner-up, RB Leipzig.
Bayern Munich signed RB Leipzig (Nagelsmann) manager, captain (Sabitzer) and young full-back (Upamecano) from them all in one summer.
Leipzig finished second against Bayern in the German league last season.
This is not a good look at the league at all.

However, the preparation for the season was not too hot for the defending champions. Bayern drew one and lost three of their matches, raising hopes of a new champion. This thought gained even more traction with Borussia Moenchengladbach winning a home draw in their season opener.
As if to prove their dominance under the new coach, Nagelsmann’s team immediately set off on a five-game winning streak. Those victories came with a score of 22-4. Bayern scored at least three goals in each match, hitting Bochum for seven, Leipzig for four, and Hertha for five. Bochum will remember this.
Bayern Munich is at the top of the German league standings this evening, after scoring seven goals against Bochum.

The Bavarians lost their first match of the season in the seventh round at home to Eintracht Frankfurt. This loss sparked another run of four straight wins as they scored 16 goals and conceded only twice. Fans began noticing a pattern as Bayern lost 2-1 away to Augsburg in mid-November.
In fact, Negelsmann & Co. He won the next five years in a row, including the undefeated December. 2022 arrived and Bayern suffered a third loss in the first match of the new year. And their old rival Moenchengladbach beat them again in another defeat 2-1.

This was followed by three more wins before one of the two most surprising results of the season was achieved. Bochum shot for seven in the reverse game and hit the champ 4-2. Moreover, it was also Bayern Munich’s first loss with a score of 2-1 in the league.

This was their last defeat as Bayern go nine games unbeaten. They have the best attack and defense in the league which made life easier. Once again, the Bundesliga was a picnic.
The men who made it 10
First and foremost, there’s the killer Robert Lewandowski. 32 goals and 2 assists. For context, Patrick Schick is in second place with 20 goals. Lewandowski has always been a reliable goal-maker who can score from anywhere. He has played nine matches scoring at least two goals. Three of those cases turned into a hat-trick.

Moreover, Lewandowski’s goals were essential in leading Bayern Munich to the throne of the Bundesliga champions every year. Behind the Polish striker is his best teammate, Thomas Muller.
The ageless veteran has 16 assists in the league and scored seven times. Muller was the conductor of the attacking orchestra which is pivotal to the side’s operation. In the net, Manuel Neuer has kept 10 clean sheets in the net.
Friendly reminder that Thomas Muller has provided 18 assists in 21 Bundesliga matches this season.
The record is 21 in one season. Prepared by Thomas Muller.

The trio have been the backbone of a side that is now full of excellent players. Serge Gnabry, Kingsley Coman, Leroy Sane and of course the versatile Joshua Kimmich. These guys have taken Bayern Munich to a different level in every game it seems.
Janabri and Koman with their speed, speed and direct threat in the attack. Sane’s career was revitalized in Germany, where she played across the front line.
Kimmich is the most all-encompassing threat in the Bundesliga, capable of making a decisive impact on both ends of the pitch. The defense consists mostly of three defenses from Upamecano, Niklas Sule and Benjamin Pavard. The 3-4-2-1 figure helps close spaces while allowing Neuer to keep up with his sweeping role.

Jamal Musiala was one of the brightest prospects. The teenager played in a number of positions, excelling in each of them. More than 10 league goals is a very good return in a solid first season.
what happened after that?
Aside from winning the Bundesliga title, the season has not been too hot for Bayern Munich. They won all of their Champions League group stage matches, and went through the round of 16 against RB Salzburg. Villarreal were waiting for them in the quarters and perhaps overconfidence played its part. Bayern lost 2-1 on aggregate in one of the shocks of the European season.

This came after the Bavarians were knocked out of the German Football League last October. After defeating fifth-division team Bremer SV 12-0 in the first round, Borussia Moenchengladbach came next. The Foals produced one of the most famous results in the history of the competition with a 5-0 loss. These kinds of tiered offerings won’t please many, mainly because European glory is what they crave most.

Likewise, the big talking point is Lewandowski’s future. The striker has repeatedly stated that he is looking for a three-year extension to his current deal, which expires in 2023.

Bayern Munich was unwilling to commit the matter which led to rumours. Lewandowski could leave the club in the summer, with several interested parties touring.
Bayern is progressing in the final stages of negotiations with Ryan Gravenburch and Nassir Mazraoui. Both are expected to join Bayern Munich. 🔴 # Bayern Munich

Furthermore, after signing Ryan Gravenburch, with a Mazraoui fan on the way, Bayern are turning into a smaller core. Moreover, Muller will also remain until at least 2023. Above all, replacing Lewandowski would be near impossible in this market. There are several questions in front of them, most of which are not related to the German League.
In conclusion, the club can relax for the time being and look forward to the end of the season with passion after emphasizing their qualifications to be the best on earth.
