The Bundesliga returned last weekend and fans are already treated to fantastic football, great tecnique/style of play and most importantly – barrage of spectacular goals. The league may not exactly be brimming with quality or fierce title competition as opposed to other top leagues in Europe but fans are assured one thing each time they step into the stadium to watch a match – Entertainment.
Bus parking or pragmatic play seem like a taboo in the league and all teams regardless of how precarious the situation they are in may seem always come out to play unlike what applies in some other leagues where teams settle for a boring draw even before the blast of the whistle.
The first week of the Bundesliga produced 28goals – and that’s just from 9 matches! That brings us nicely to an average of 3 goals per game. Massive. Bayern Munich got things started with a 5nil whitewash of Hamburg courtesy of goals from Benatia, Muller, Lewandoski and Douglas Costa while other teams like Schalke 04, Borrusia Dortmund and FC Cologne followed suit with emphatic victories.
Whatever the league lacks in competition, it makes up for in entertainment and that is the whole essence of football. Fans deserve intriguing games that would keep them on their feet, not games that would rock them to sleep.
