The Challenges of FC Bayern to Win the Treble Again

FC Bayern won the treble in 2012/13, 10 seasons ago. In Germany, this means winning the German Cup, The Bundesliga and the UEFA Champions League.

Bayern Münich certainly is one of the biggest contenders for the UCL title together with Real Madrid and Manchester City.

In spite of the recurring problems of PSG, knocking out of the UCL a team that has Neymar, Messi and Mbappé among other stars in their squad is always a major accomplishment.

It’s interesting to note how FC Bayern has been achieving this without having the biggest stars in their squad all the time.

The secret of the German side seems to be teamwork, and prime work in terms of club structure and fitness. German culture isn’t easily absorbed by players, and even Xabi Alonso in the past didn’t speak German after 3 years in Münich.

The club has a prime structure to keep the players fit and able to focus on their jobs. Physiologists and other fitness staff allow them to focus on footie, just like a personal trainer can help you achieve goals by holding you accountable.

Betting Odds for FC Bayern: Bundesliga, German Cup and UCL

What would be the odds for a treble? Well, we must combine the odds for each potential triumph of FC Bayern.

The average odds for a Bayern Münich triumph in the DfB Pokal are 2.38 on average right now, followed by RB Leipzig and Borussia Dortmund with 6.5 and 7.0, respectively, in the decimal odds system.

Interestingly, however, in the Bundesliga, the odds for a triumph of FC Bayern are just 1.25 on average, even though they’re a point below Borussia Dortmund right now, which have average odds of 4.0.

The reason behind this is simple: history. The betting community sees the past and how FC Bayern usually manages to lift the Bundesliga trophy.

The DfB Pokal involves fewer games, and one bad evening could mean being knocked out of the competition. Also, the Bundesliga matters more, and if they are forced to rotate the squad, this is likely to happen in the German Cup instead of the Bundesliga.

The odds for a FC Bayern triumph in the UEFA Champions League are 4.50 on average, and that can be explained by the fact that the biggest soccer competition in the world is just at the quarter-finals.

But how to bet on the potential treble of FC Bayern? Well, there may be bookies out there with odds displayed and sold this way. But in the betting world, you can substitute some odds or compound them in a way that makes them mathematically equivalent to a market that you can’t find out there.

In this case, we need to multiply the odds for every single title.

Bundesliga (1.25) * UCL (4.5) * DfB Pokal (2.38) = 1.25 * 4.5 * 2.38 = 13.38 (decimal system)

So if you really believe in this potential selection, you can bet, for example, €100 on each outrights market, and if you win, you’ll get the compound odd of 13.38, which in this case would mean a potential prize of €1,338.

Will FC Bayern win the treble again anytime soon? Time will tell!
