The summer is here and most people think about beaches, movies and relaxing. But, some people are already looking forward to the upcoming Bundesliga season which will have its kick-off on August 18th. And let us tell you, it will start with a boom!
The first match of the season is always drawing much attention, no matter which teams are playing. Last year the Premier League started with Hudd playing against former champion Leicester, while the German Bundesliga started with a match between Bayern Munchen and Werder Bremen. Last year the team from Munchen managed to win their opening match 6-0, but can they get such an impressing start again? We doubt it, because Bayer Leverkusen is a great team, and at an excellent day they might actually beat Bayern Munchen.
There will be other great matches as well in the Bundesliga opening round, and here you can see a list presenting the rest of them:
- 1899 Hoffenheim – Werder Bremen
- Hertha BSC – VfB Stuttgart
- SC Freiburg – Eintracht Frankfurt
- Bor. Mönchengladbach – 1. FC Köln
- FC Schalke 04 – RB Leipzig
- Hamburger SV – FC Augsburg
- 1. FSV Mainz 05 – Hannover 96
- VfL Wolfsburg – Borussia Dortmund
The time for these matches are not yet set, but they are most likely to be played on August 19th and 20th. None of these matches are as interesting as the opening match between Bayern Munchen and Bayer Leverkusen, but if we had to select one or two more matches to watch, then the Hoffenheim vs Werder Bremen match would be our pick together with the Wolfsburg vs Borussia Dortmund.
Pay attention to these Bundesliga teams
Last years season was a great disappointment for the Wolfsburg fans, but at least they managed to keep their spot in the upper division. Can they return to the top of it this season? We doubt it, but it will still be interesting to see them as they measure strength with the giant Borussia Dortmund.
Hoffenheim was one of the big surprises in 2016-17, but can they keep it up for two seasons in a row? The same question is of course valid when it comes to RB Leipzig. We can of course not foretell anything, but it will be interesting to follow both Hoffenheim and RB Leipzing from round one.
