Betting: Bosz 5/1 to lead Borussia Dortmund to Bundesliga title

The former Ajax boss has been confirmed as Thomas Tuchel's replacement but the 53-year-old will have his work cut out to overhaul Bayern Munich

Borussia Dortmund have move swiftly after Thomas Tuchel's departure, bringing in Peter Bosz from Ajax on a contract which runs until 2019.

Bosz is seen as a coach that can continue Dortmund's free-flowing footballing philosphy as well as having an impressive track record of developing young talent, an essential part of the club given BVB are unlikely to be able to compete financially with those at the very top of the European game.

The new boss led a young and exciting Ajax side to the Europa League final where they were beaten by Manchester United but Bosz has clearly impressed during his single season in charge, with his new club paying the €5 million in order to acquire his services from the Dutch side.

Betfair go 5/1 (6.0) that Dortmund win their first Bundesliga title since 2012 when they last triumphed under the stewardship of Jurgen Klopp.

Bayern Munich have been crowned champions of Germany for the past five seasons, and it's just 1/5 (1.20) that Carlo Ancelotti's side extend that winning run. In truth, it was something of a procession for the favourites over the past few months as they coasted to victory by a huge 25 points.

Elsewhere in the betting, RB Leipzig are listed as 20/1 (21.0) shots having finished second in the 2016/17 campaign while Bayer Leverkusen, who are also on the hunt for a new manager, are available at 33/1 (34.0).


The club have also been to the latter stages of the Champions League in recent years, losing out in all-German final at Wembley back in 2013. The odds compilers go 18/1 (19.0) that BVB are crowned the best team in Europe next term.

Surely the first big issue on Bosz's to-do list will be to source a potential replacement for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who is seemingly on his way out of the Westfalenstadion this summer with PSG looking to be frontrunners for the 27-year-old's signature.

The Gabon international netted 31 league goals last season to pip Robert Lewandowski to the top scorer prize by a single strike. Only two of those came from the penalty spot and he broke the deadlock 13 times over the course of the 34 game season, more than anyone else in the German top flight.
