FC Bayern is in crisis and is already five points behind the top of the table.

Ex-professional Michael Ballack believes in underdog Union Berlin.

Berlin – Will Bayern Munich be replaced as Bundesliga champions?

More and more football fans are dealing with this question.

At least since the beginning of the Bayern crisis, which culminated in the embarrassing performance at FC Augsburg (0: 1), many observers have been hoping for a changing of the guard by the record champions.

FC Bayern: "Everything is possible in football" - Ex-Munich Ballack has underdog on the slip

Munich have won the German championship ten times in a row, mostly with a clear lead over their pursuers.

Bored with the title, many fans lose interest in the Bundesliga.

But if ex-professional Michael Ballack (45) has his way, the series could break this year.

But the focus of the former Bayern player is not on Borussia Dortmund or RB Leipzig, but on a blatant underdog.

Michael Ballack

Born: September 26, 1976 in Gorlitz

Stations as a player: Chemnitzer FC, 1. FC Kaiserslautern, Bayer 04 Leverkusen, FC Bayern, FC Chelsea

Record: 604 competitive games, 151 goals, 94 assists

According to the expert, Union Berlin could surprise Bayern.

Ballack believes in a football fairy tale for the capital club by winning the championship title.

"Everything is always possible in football, the past has shown that," Ballack told

Sport Bild

, "I experienced that with Kaiserslautern in 1998 when we became champions as a promoted team."

“That releases strength”: Ballack explains why Union Berlin can become German champion

The Irons are at the top of the table with 17 points and five games won, five points ahead of Bayern Munich.

Last Sunday they defended their place with a 2-0 win against VfL Wolfsburg.

Nevertheless, the Köpenickers remain in the league with their goal for the season.

"You can play yourself into a frenzy that will carry you through the entire season," Ballack continued.

“In the past three or four years, the Berliners have had very good seasons with their opportunities, they have improved every time.

They build on that.

That releases power.

Especially when you're at the top,” knows the former captain of the German national team.

"Why not?": Ballack believes in Union championship

However, the ex-national player can understand that 1. FC Union Berlin does not want to evaluate the current standings in the Bundesliga too briskly.

“Basically, it would be presumptuous to speak publicly of the championship.

Especially against such a strong opponent as Bayern Munich, who have dominated the Bundesliga for years,” said Ballack.

"But dreaming is allowed.

Why not?"

Many other observers of the Bundesliga certainly think the same way.

But FC Bayern will not give up that quickly.

Most recently, Bayern upgraded their training ground and Julian Nagelsmann (35) fulfilled a special request: the coach received a tactical balcony and a walkie-talkie system.
