RB Leipzig manager Ralph Hasenhuttl believes the only way to win the Bundesliga is to hope FC Bayern München have a poor season.
Die Roten have already secured their fifth consecutive Bundesliga title, and Hasenhuttl admits it's difficult to see any other team surpass them.
Leipzig have exceeded expectations in their first Bundesliga campaign and are on target to finish as runners up to Bayern, but Hasenhuttl admits it would be tough to beat the champions in the future.
"Hopefully we solidify our place near the top of the table, but to be champions in Germany you have to hope that the best team, Bayern Munich, make mistakes," he told Omnisport.
"But Bayern have not done this recently. So for teams like Borussia Dortmund, in the last few years it's been a hard nut to crack.
"For us it is so much more difficult to be champions. If we could be runner-up this season, it would be a sensational campaign and we are proud of what we have done this year regardless."
