Percentage of Youth Minutes among Bundesliga sides 2019-20 | Club Playing minutes for youngsters

Have you wondered which Bundesliga team gives the most minutes to youth players? A study conducted has revealed that Borussia Dortmund give the most minutes to players under the age of 22, while Union Berlin, one of the three promoted teams, give their youngsters virtually zero playing time.

The Ruhr derby teams top this table, with 22.3% of Dortmund’s playing league minutes this season going to their youngsters and 19.1%. Leipzig are third with 18.7%, but champions Bayern are well down the list with 7.4%, thus showing that the Bavarian giants prefer to rely on a well-established, experienced core. Marco Rose’s Borussia Monchengladbach give just 0.8% percent of their minutes to youth players, the lowest of any side in the current top six.

Bayern Munich 4:0 Borussia Dortmund Player Ratings | BVB crushed in Der Klassiker, Jadon Sancho poor

Bayern’s first game after the departure of Niko Kovac saw the Bavarian giants outclass rivals Borussia Dortmund. It was a rare Der Klassiker where neither of the teams were top of the table, and Bayern ran out deserved winners thanks to Robert Lewandowski’s brace. The Polish striker has now scored on each of the Bundesliga’s opening 11 game weeks- a new record.

Dortmund’s first shot on target only came in the middle of the second half, and they could have no complaints about the result.

The player ratings from German newspaper Bild tell the story- Axel Witsel the only BVB player to emerge with a level of credit, but every Bayern player on the park was better than him. Sancho, Akanji and Hakimi the worst of the lot according to these Bild ratings. Caretaker Bayern manager Flick (1) comprehensively outplayed his opposite number, with Lucien Favre getting a 5.
