Bayern Munich’s record 10th Bundesliga title in a row might be the easiest of the lot.

The team from Munich are cruising unbeaten at the top of the league table under new coach Julian Nagelsmann and their challengers from last season are in disarray. Sure, it’s very early - just six games from 34 played - but other Bundesliga teams have long relied on Bayern making mistakes, and there’s no sign of those.

That could be a problem for the Bundesliga. Bayern have won their last nine matches under Nagelsmann in all competitions and scored at least three goals in each game, including 3-1 over Borussia Dortmund in the German Super Cup and a 4-1 dismissal of Leipzig in the league. Robert Lewandowski already has 13 goals from nine games and is on track to match his record 41 in the Bundesliga last season.

The Champions League group stage won’t be a distraction for much longer after Bayern started by beating Barcelona 3-0 and followed up on Wednesday with a 5-0 hammering of Dynamo Kyiv despite rarely playing even close to full intensity.
