RB Leipzig is vying to win the Bundesliga

DUSSELDORF, Germany (AP) – When one club has won the league title seven years in a row, you might expect fans of other teams to cheer on any viable challenger. Not so in Germany.

The Bundesliga returns from its winter break this weekend with Leipzig in first place, the favorite to break Bayern Munich’s dominance.

Few German fans love Bayern’s financial clout or its tendency to cherry-pick top talent, but they’re not warming to Leipzig either. Opposing fans regularly hold up protest banners against energy drink giant Red Bull, the engine behind Leipzig’s success.

Besides Leipzig and Bayern, Borussia Monchengladbach is also in the chase for the title and has become the neutrals’ darling.

Created barely a decade ago, Leipzig is creating its traditions as it goes along. Its success this season is built on the Bundesliga’s youngest squad, relentless attacking play and 18 goals from forward Timo Werner.
