Lahm predicts Dortmund as favourites
Philipp Lahm, Bayern Munich
"Dortmund are deliberately acting modest, and let's face it, it's served them well over the last two seasons. I actually talked about this with [Borussia Dortmund president] Reinhard Rauball," the defender was quoted as saying on Bayern's official website.
"But I think the club that has won back-to-back titles start as favourites, although there are other title candidates. I have Schalke on my radar for example, they'll be there or thereabouts."
Lahm then went on to stress that Bayern are desperate to win their first Bundesliga title since 2010.
"We had become used to winning the Bundesliga at least every second season," the full-back added.
"But we fell short, and that basically cannot be. The title is our priority. I definitely still have a deep yearning for more trophies."
