Positions by round

This table lists the positions of teams after each week of matches. In order to preserve the chronological evolution, any postponed matches are not included to the round at which they were originally scheduled, but added to the full round they were played immediately afterwards. For example, if a match is scheduled for matchday 13, but then postponed and played between days 16 and 17, it will be added to the standings for day 16.

If a Bundesliga club wins the DFB-Pokal, they will qualify for the UEFA Europa League group stage, unless they have already qualified for the UEFA Champions League through league position. In this case, an additional UEFA Europa League group stage birth will be given to 6th, and the UEFA Europa League qualifying round spot will be given to 7th.
