"Bayern Munich," the perennial powerhouse of the German Bundesliga, that country's primary football competition, is this year's champion … again. Bayern has won the championship 23 times in 51 seasons. This season is still ongoing, mind you, but the Bayern steamroller clinched the title on March 25, with seven games left to go — the earliest any team has mathematically wrapped things up (the Bundesliga, like most domestic leagues in Europe, has no playoffs). Opposing German clubs don't just drool at the talent Bayern lines up in its starting 11, they covet the stellar leftover talent that rides its bench as well. The league's smaller clubs barely spend one-tenth of what Bayern does on players.
