Joachim Low believes that Borussia Dortmund are the only team who can stop Bayern Munich winning the Bundesliga title this season.

Germany head coach Joachim Low has predicted a "two-horse race" between Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund for the Bundesliga title.

Current champions Bayern - now under the guidance of former Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola - are arguably the dominant force in football after becoming the first German team to win a league, cup and European treble.

Despite finishing a distant second, Low believes that Dortmund - who also lost the Champions League final at Wembley - are the only club who can compete with the Bavarian giants.

"I think only Borussia Dortmund are strong enough to match Bayern this season," the 53-year-old told Bild.

"Schalke have a good squad and maybe Stuttgart or Leverkusen could be up there.

"There could be one or two surprise packages, but I can only see a two-horse race at the top."

The Bundesliga gets underway this weekend, with Bayern taking on Borussia Monchengladbach and Dortmund facing Augsburg.
