After almost three months of hiatus, the Bundesliga is finally back after the summer break. Next weekend sees Germany’s top flight kick off with Matchday 1 of the new season and champions Bayern will traditionally play the opener, with the Munich side due to travel to Frankfurt on Friday. Kick off for this match will be at 8:30 p.m.

Once again the question arises this season if any of the other German clubs will finally be able to break Bayern’s continued dominance. Last year, the people of Munich celebrated their tenth consecutive championship. Few see Frankfurt as a real challenger, despite the previous season’s tremendous Europa League success. Nevertheless, the SGE has every intention of annoying the Bavarian Ogre as soon as it enters the running.

Eintracht Frankfurt: news and form

Eintracht Frankfurt has just had an unforgettable season. Although results in the Bundesliga were extremely mixed in the first year under Oliver Glasner, SGE celebrated one of the greatest successes in the club’s history at international level. After making a splash in the Europa League in previous years, the Eagles saw their positive development culminate last season with the triumphant conquest of the title. No one in Frankfurt will soon forget the magical night in Seville, where Eintracht came out on top in dramatic penalty shootout fashion against Glasgow Rangers. The Hessians will thus be able to participate in the Champions League next season, despite finishing only 11th in the Bundesliga.

After such success, it’s hardly surprising that other clubs have set their sights on Eintracht’s key players. So far, the end of Martin Hinteregger’s professional career is the only really painful start for Frankfurt. But key players like Evan N’Dicka or Filip Kostić are still highly sought after on the transfer market and the squad could change.

Players like Mario Götze, Lucas Alario or Randal Kolo Muani should become important factors for Frankfurt this season. After an undefeated preparation (four wins, one draw), the three players mentioned have already been noticed during the opening match in Magdeburg. In the 4-0 away win in the German Cup first round, Götze showed a great performance in the starting XI. Alario and Kolo Muani combined to score the final goal of the day shortly after coming on.

Bayern Munich: news and form

The fact that the Munich people weren’t happy with their last season has become more than evident over the past few months. Julian Nagelsmann’s first season as Bayern manager may have ended with a tenth consecutive championship, but it was above all marked by embarrassing eliminations in the Champions League and the German Cup. For the new season, the team must therefore move up a gear and Nagelsmann is now under surveillance. After two years in which FCB won “only” the championship and won nothing in all other important competitions, Munich officials want to see an improvement. The two flagship transfers of the summer should help them in particular. With Sadio Mané, Bayern was able to hire an absolute world star who must help replace Robert Lewandowski, who left for FC Barcelona. In addition, Matthijs de Ligt has been recruited as the new head of defence. Bayern absolutely had to fill this role again after the departures of David Alaba and Jérôme Boateng a year ago.

In addition, Bayern bought three talented players, Ryan Gravenberch, Noussair Mazraoui and Mathys Tel, who already ensure a new squad width in their positions. On the other hand, with the exception of Lewandowski and Niklas Süle, only additional players left, for whom the Munich residents were able to achieve significant transfer value in several cases. During the preparation tour in the United States, the FCB won a victory against DC United (6-2), but also had to lose against the Citizens of Pep Guardiola (0-1). In the first official match of the season, Bayern immediately secured their first title. The Supercup against cup winner Leipzig was a real spectacle. At the end of a frenzied match, Bayern won 5-3, Jamal Musiala, Mané, Benjamin Pavard, Serge Gnabry and Leroy Sané scoring the goals for FCB. The newly formed attack quickly overshadowed Lewandowski’s departure, but the defense again showed weaknesses.

The opening game between Eintracht Frankfurt and Bayern Munich promises to be very interesting. The two representatives of the Champions League have always engaged in exciting duels in recent years and now meet on the first day of the new season. The hosts want to set an example and upset the defending champion, who in turn wants to immediately take the top of the standings if they win. We don’t believe in a surprise from the Frankfurters.
