Bundesliga fixtures: Bayern's one-two punch vs Dortmund & Leipzig and Champions League headache

Updated: 

March shapes up as being Bayern Munich's most pivotal month as they hunt a sixth consecutive Bundesliga title in 2017-18.

Naturally, it is the business end of the season, with Champions League commitments beginning to stiffen, but back-to-back league fixtures with RB Leipzig and Borussia Dortmund, expected to be their closest rivals, could give Carlo Ancelotti's men a hand on the trophy, or see momentum come shuddering to a halt.

In the first half of the season, Ralph Hasenhuttl and Peter Bosz's sides will also be tackled in consecutive weeks - with a European match in between.

Returning from continental action with an imposing trip to Signal Iduna Park is part of a pattern that will see Bayern face away Bundesliga fixtures immediately after five of their six Champions League group games.

Keeping their players fresh will be vital, then. Luckily for Ancelotti, Corentin Tolisso, Niklas Sule, Sebastian Rudy and Serge Gnabry have already been added to a wealth of riches in the squad.
