The 2014 Bundesliga shows that Bayern, of course, remain on top

If the Bundesliga consisted only of games played in 2014, what would the table look like?

Everyone is quite aware of the dominant form that Bayern Munich has shown in the Bundesliga after the last year. However, what would it look like in the form of a league table? How many points would they win by? How far would the last six months drop Borussia Dortmund? What about the rise of Wolfsburg and Augsburg?

The following table was created using only teams that played at least 34 teams in 2014. That means teams that were relegated in the spring or promoted in the fall are not included.

Position Team Games Played Goals For Goals Against Points
1 Bayern Munich 34 91 18 88
2 Wolfsburg 34 68 48 64
3 Schalke 34 59 36 63
4 Augsburg 34 48 43 55
5 Borussia Dortmund 34 60 44 54
6 Bayer Leverkusen 34 56 45 52
7 Hoffenheim 34 65 57 52
8 Borussia Mönchengladbach 34 49 40 49
9 Hannover 34 44 54 48
10 Mainz 34 46 46 47
11 Eintracht Frankfurt 34 54 62 44
12 Freiburg 34 44 55 37
13 Werder Bremen 34 46 68 37
14 Hertha Berlin 34 37 63 31
15 Stuttgart 34 39 61 30
16 Hamburg 34 27 56 29

That's certainly an interesting looking table. BVB's free fall in the Hinrunde saw them drop out of a Champions League place, while Augsburg's superb start has helped them creep into the fourth position. Wolfsburg's rise into second place isn't as surprising. Neither is Hamburg settling for last.
