Bundesliga Schedule Announced

The 2017/2018 Bundesliga season looks like it’ll be a very entertaining and intriguing. The season opener will be on Friday, August 8. Bayer Leverkusen travel to the Allianz Arena to face defending Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich.

Matchday 1:

TSG 1899 Hoffenheim vs SV Werder Bremen

Last season, Werder Bremen surprised us all by turning around their terrible first half of the season. Their unbeaten streak started on the 18th of February with a 2-0 win over Mainz, and continued for 10 games after, until a 4-3 loss at Koln ended their streak. Hoffenheim surprised us as well, finishing 4th after a 15th place finish the season before.

Hertha Berlin vs VfB Stuttgart

After winning the 2nd Bundesliga, VfB Stuttgart have been promoted back into the first division. They travel to the German capital to play their first match of the season against a Hertha team that finished 6th last season. Known for their strategic defending, Hertha will be tough to score against.

SC Freiburg vs Eintracht Frankfurt

After coming from the 2nd Bundesliga, SC Freiburg not only avoided relegation; they finished their season in a surprisingly high 7th place. They’ll host 11th placed Eintract Frankfurt on Matchday 1.

Borussia Monochengladbach vs FC Koln

Matchday 1 of the 2017/2018 season will see the first derby of the year; the Rhine Derby. Only 57 kilometers separate these two clubs. This is the first time since 2003 that these two rivals have played each other on Matchday 1. The Billygoats would like to continue their fine form from last season, however, Dieter Hecking’s side is determined to defeat their opponents.

FC Schalke vs RB Leipzig

RB Leipzig burst onto the scene last season. Fresh from gaining promotion to the Bundesliga, Leipzig finished their season in second place, only behind champions Bayern Munich. They travel to the Veltins-Arena to face Schalke, a team that finished on a modest 10th place last season.

Hamburger SV vs FC Augsburg

Another promising game from Matchday 1, Hamburg and Augsburg both struggled last season. Both teams were in danger of being relegated to the second division, and had to really focus and work hard to stay in the Bundesliga. Both of these teams finished the season with 33 points; only difference was Augsburg had a superior goal difference, keeping them one spot above their Matchday 1 opponents.

FC Mainz vs Hanover 96

Hanover 96 are back in the Bundesliga, and their first game of the season could help them set of on the right foot. The 2. Bundesliga runner-ups will be facing a Mainz team that struggled to find consistency last season, finishing in 15 place. This should be an interesting match between a strong team fresh from the second division versus a team that had a tough time in the first division.

VfL Wolfsburg vs Borussia Dortmund

Wolfsburg are looking to rebound from their terrible 16th place finish last season, however, a match against 3rd place Dortmund may see them fall in the back of the pack early on in the season. Although both teams look equal on paper, anything could happen.
