Bundesliga standings

Bayern Munich currently sits at the top of the table with 58 points, but it's far from over. The Bavarians still have to face three of the other top five sides: at second-place Borussia Dortmund (54 points), at fifth-place Leverkusen (50 points) and at home against third-place Borussia Monchengladbach (52 points), so the title, as well as the fourth Champions League spot, is still up for grabs.

Towards the middle of the table is a battle for sixth-place to claim the last Europa League spot. Wolfsburg currently holds the positon, but only nine points separates them from 12th-place Union Berlin, so it's a tight contest.

At the bottom are Paderborn and Werder Bremen, though Bremen has a game in hand on 16th-place Fortuna Dusseldorf and only trails by  points. The team that finishes 16th at the end of the season plays in a relegation playoff with the third-place team in Bundesliga 2.
