This 27th day of Bundesliga promises to be still exciting. Between the fight for the title, the race for Europe or the maintenance, the stakes will be numerous this weekend. Focus on the four meetings not to be missed, during the next day.

Led by a Robert Lewandowski in great shape (40 goals TCC), Bayern Munich have won their last seven games in all competitions. To continue its great series, the Bavarian club finds Eintracht Frankfurt on the next day of the Bundesliga.

Eintracht Frankfurt is experiencing a very delicate exercise. For the moment, the Adi Hütter club is only in thirteenth place in the ranking. Staying on a streak of three defeats in a row, Filip Kostić's teammates may find it very difficult to make a result on the Bavarian lawn.

Still in second place at Bayern Munich, Dortmund can still believe in the coronation. With only four lengths behind, nothing is played yet at the end of the season. Jadon Sancho's teammates will no longer have too much room for error in the weeks to come.

We are surely on the most awaited match of the German weekend. It is a meeting that promises to be decisive, in the fight against Champions League. Borussia Mönchengladbach (3rd) welcomes Bayer Leverkusen (5th) for this 27th day of the Bundesliga.

If the Borussia Mönchengladbach has to start shaking, it is also because of the very good performances of the Bayer Leverkusen. One of the most fit teams in the German championship, the current fifth in the ranking has won ten of its last eleven games, and can count on a Kai Havertz on fire (who scored twice last weekend).

Back to a point in fourth place, Bayer Leverkusen still has big ambitions for the end of the season.
