Neven Subotic believes Dortmund can win the league ahead of Bayern

Former Borussia Dortmund defender Neven Subotic believes Lucien Favre’s side have the advantage over Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga title race, should the latter not improve the squad further this summer. Dortmund have been busy during the transfer window with the purchases of Julian Brandt, Mats Hummels, Nico Schulz and Thorgan Hazard and Subotic feels the club can close the gap to the Bundesliga holders.

Speaking to the Bild, Subotic said that Dortmund have made the better business during the current transfer window and the return of Hummels from Bayern should offer him with the much-needed experience required to spur a title charge, he told: "If the Bayern squad stays the same, it is Dortmund. Very clearly.I say that as a former BVB player and fan. I congratulate him. The team will benefit from him. He won four titles at Bayern during the last three years, while Dortmund only won one during that period. Dortmund will get a lot of experience in Mats. It is a big chance for him."
