Even though the Bundesliga title race seemed to be over just few weeks ago, Borussia Dortmund’s latest struggles have allowed Bayer Leverkusen to close down the gap to just five points.

On the other hand, Hannover and Bayern are set to battle for the third Champions League berth, meaning that last few Bundesliga rounds will be pretty exciting after all.

Having made three slip ups in last four league games, Borussia Dortmund are now just five points clear at the top and they are now under big pressure not to ruin everything they worked for this season.

Jurgen Klopp’s side have a pretty easy fixture list since they are set to host Freiburg, Nurnberg and Eintracht, while traveling to Moenchenglabach and Bremen in the meantime. Dortmund are now 1.10 (1/10) to win the title at Bodog.

Bayer Leverkusen are brimming with confidence after winning five straight games and since they have nothing to lose, Jupp Heynckes’s side are expected to continue the rich vein of form.

Bayer will face Bayern Munich, Koln and Freiburg away, while playing host to Hoffenheim and Hamburger, and they are 9.50 (17/2) with Betfair to win the Bundesliga title.

As far as the 3rd place race is concerned, Hannover are currently one point clear of Bayern and they are 3.10 (21/10) with Betfair to achieve a historic success and qualify for the Champions League.

Hannover face difficult away games against Hamburger, Freiburg and Stuttgart, while they play Borussia Moenchengladbach and Nurnberg at home.

New Bayern boss Adries Jonker has been given a tough task of waking up the team before the decisive league battles commence after Louis van Gaal was sacked following the draw against Nurnberg.

Bayern play Bayer Leverkusen, Schalke and Stuttgart at home, while they travel to Frankfurt and St Pauli, and they are 1.22 (2/9) to finish in top 3 at Betfair.
