2022-23 Bundesliga report cards

The 2022-23 Bundesliga season will go down as one of the most unique in history after the unprecedented mid-season World Cup. Bayern were once again crowned champions, but not without a fight with Dortmund coming within a whisker of usurping the Rekordmeister.  Here at the Bundesliga Fanatic, we’ve looked back at each team’s season and compiled a report card.

Published over a few weeks, all 18 clubs can be found in one place. A season overview, highlights, lowlights, tale of the tape, team analysis, player of the year and a final grade is available for all clubs. Click the links to check out each team…

 

Bayern

Munich

Borussia

Dortmund

RB

Leipzig

Union Berlin

Bayern had a tumultuous ride to their eleventh consecutive title leaving Borussia Dortmund heartbroken at their missed opportunity. Julian Nagelsmann started the season, but Thomas Tuchel was the one to lift the Meisterschale. RB Leipzig underwent a big improvement under Marco Rose after Domenico Tedesco was given the boot, while the big story of the season had to be the continuing fairy tale rise of Union Berlin, who qualified for the Champions League.

 

 

SC Freiburg

Bayer Leverkusen

Eintracht Frankfurt

VfL Wolfsburg

Freiburg narrowly missed out on their own Champions League dream, but that doesn’t take anything away from a great season from the Breisgauer under veteran Christian Streich. Leverkusen were reborn under Xabi Alonso and just missed out on European glory (the Neverkusen jibes won’t go away), while Frankfurt’s season was one of ups and more than a few downs. Wolfsburg kept faith with Nico Kovac despite a poor start to finish eighth.

Mainz 05

Borussia Mönchengladbach

1.FC Köln

Hoffenheim

 

Mainz had genuine ambitions of European qualification after an impressive Rückrunde, while Borussia Mönchengladbach seemed to stagnate under Daniel Farke and he was duly fired at the end of the season. Köln easily secured safety for another season whereas it really was touch and go for Hoffenheim for a large part of the season run-in.

Werder Bremen

Augsburg

VfB Stuttgart

Werder, Bochum and Augsburg all achieved safety, while for Stuttgart it took the relegation play-off to avoid humiliation. Unfortunately for Schalke and Hertha Berlin it will the 2.Bundesliga next season.
