Fairly average in the first part of the season with a lot of points lost along the way, the BVB took advantage of its renewed form and the faux pas of its competitors to get back into the title race. Indeed, Lucien Favre’s men returned to 2nd place in the ranking with only 4 units behind Bayern Munich. Before the season break, they had won their last 4 Bundesliga games against Frankfurt (4-0), Bremen (0-2), Freiburg (1-0) and Borussia Mönchengladbach (1-2). Winner of PSG in the 1/8 finals first leg of the Champions League, they could not keep their lead when returning to a Parc des Princes behind closed doors (2-0) and were eliminated.
Opposite, Schalke 04 is in a much better position than last year when it had to wait until the last few days to maintain it.

After losing to Leipzig (0-5), Cologne (3-0) and Bayern in the German Cup (1-0), they had finally stopped the bleeding against Hoffenheim (1-1) before the season is not bracketed.
