The 2018/19 season for FC Bayern is also starting in Germany: the opening act will be represented by the 2018 German Super Cup (DFL-Supercup in the original language). To face each other, once again and as always when thinking about football on German soil, will be Borussia and Bayern: on the one hand the champions of the National Cup (or DFB-Pokal does the same) now trained by Peter Bosz; on the other, the absolute rulers of the Bundesliga with Ancelotti who won the championship at the first blow, bringing the Bavarians’ consecutive Meisterschale to 5.
After the midweek round, the Bundesliga returns immediately on its 15th day. To open the round will be the match between Fortuna Dusseldorf and Eintracht Frankfurt, which must redeem the bad home defeat suffered against Mainz and try not to miss the train of the top positions.
Saturday afternoon, Leverkusen will try to maintain second place in the standings by defeating Nurnberg at home, coming back from a victory against Hoffenheim. Schalke 04 by Stevens, who will receive Monchengladbach at home, is looking for redemption: a victory is necessary to get out of the crisis in which the team has fallen.
Predictions: Last season Bayern Munich met in the most premature elimination from the 2010/2011 edition onwards, but it was the then champion team, Liverpool. In group B of the Champions League apart from Tottenham, the other opponents are largely within reach: the Olympiacos and the Red Star, which will face on this first day.
Last year they managed at home to win against Liverpool and to stop Napoli in the draw. On the other hand, he lost all the matches away, and in a difficult stadium like the Allianz Arena, the chances of losing are very high.
The German season has come to an end with this evening’s final of the DFB-Pokal. To contend for the national cup will be the big two of Germany, namely Guardiola’s Bayern Munich and Tuchel’s Borussia Dortmund, the same ones that will open the new season with the Supercup final on August 14th.
A challenge with a European flavor between Mainz and Hannover, the Freiburg against Augsburg has the opportunity to rise to the top of the rankings. The same applies to Stuttgart, which is involved in the Greuther Furth field.
In the evening the big match of the day between Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund will take place: at -11 the situation is complicated for the Gialloneri, who could only theoretically re-enter in the fight for the title.
