Germany's top professional football or soccer division, administered by the DFL (German Football League). An 18-team league, Bundesliga clubs play 34 fixtures per season, a lengthy winter break is commonplace.
The DW Sports (@DW_Sports on Twitter) team is your one-stop shop for all things Bundesliga - from the title fight and German sides in European competition right the way down the drop zone. Here's a collection of DW's latest content on the German domestic division.
Second-placed RB Leipzig failed to take advantage of Bayern's slip yesterday, drawing 1-1 at Schalke, who were coming off the back of European exit. Earlier, Freiburg scored late on to beat Leverkusen 2-1.
Schalke have produced some great players in recent years but haven't been able to keep them around. With Champions League football unlikely again next season, DW's Davis Van Opdorp thinks the club needs to do much more.
