Bundesliga - Borussia Dortmund
Dortmund finished second by only one point last season and 25 points behind Bayern Munich, although this was mainly due to their exploits in the Champions League. However this season, they have no excuses.
So far this season, they've lost five times, and find themselves 4th, behind the likes of Leverkusen, Borussia Mönchengladbach and of course, Bayern Munich. Klopp's men will hope they can pick up their form if they are to qualify automatically for next year's Champions League.
They must be careful too, as many clubs behind them are still in the hunt and are only a few behind Dortmund, for example Wolfsburg and Hertha Berlin.
Place last season - 2nd
