Matchday 1 of Bundesliga.1 saw reigning Champions, Bayern Munchen, travel to Monchengladbach to begin their defence. Bayern have won the last 9 Championships in a row. Leipzig and BVB will look to put an end to the Bavarians dominance, and despite personal allegiances to Borussia Dortmund, it is hard to look past a 10th consecutive title for FC Bayern. A strange Bundesliga.1 season looms with the absence of Schalke and Werder Bremen after their relegation last season. VFL Bochum and Greuther Furth make their Bundesliga.1 returns.
Following the weekends fixtures, we get the first Der Klassiker (FC Bayern vs. Dortmund) of the season in the DFL SuperCup.
