Dortmund retained their status as Deutscher Meister after a 2-0 win over Gladbach. This is Dortmund’s second back-to-back Bundesliga title; the first time that happened was in the 1955-1966 and 1956-1957 seasons – they join only Hamburg, Borussia Mönchengladbach and Bayern Munich in achieving this feat.

Athletic Bilbao have improved immensely game by game under the new leadership of former Argentina and Chile boss Marcelo Bielsa. One of the key players for the Basque side is Iker Muniain, a 19 year old who can play on both wings, up front or as an attacking midfielder. He has great ball control, dribbling ability, pace and creativity which have resulted in him being dubbed the “Spanish Messi”. He is also nicknamed Bart Simpson for his similarity in appearance to the cartoon character and has a drawing of Bart on his shin pads.
