The fixtures for 2015/2016 have already been the hot topic even though the league will start on August 2015. The Bundesliga champions, Bayern Munich which topped the table of the last season with 10 points lead over Wolfsburg is expected to win their first match against Hamburg which struggled in the playoff to avoid the relegation. The difference in terms of all aspects is too steep, the home team will have to pull off their luck and best effort for even to match the defending champions.
Wolfsburg will finally be able to start a new season after six years visiting their opponent on their opening match. Eintracht Frankfurt will test Wolfsburg at Volkswagen Arena whether the team which finished as the runner up of the league last season will still become one the league giant. Wolfsburg is still the favorite to win the match.
Everyone likes a derby match and luckily, a derby match is available at the first week of the league between Borussia Dortmund and Borussia Mochengadbach. Borussia derby might steal the spotlight not only because the derby status but also since the two opposing sides swap their spot in the Champions League this year. Gladbach joins Bayern Munich and Wolfsburg to represent German in the European highest football tournament for the first time in their history. It is of course interesting to see how will Dortmund which now are not lead by Jurgen Klopp can put a good fight against their neighbor team.
What happened to Dortmund last season is pretty puzzling since they had a good trend at the beginning of the league but they then they could not secure maximum points in the home matches at second half of the league. Dortmund which last season finished at seventh position, will have to assure the fans which always support them incredibly at home that they still have what it takes to compete in the top of the table and the match against Gladbach is a good start to prove it.
Ingolstadt which is promoted to the highest level tournament in German will visit Mainz for their first ever Bundesliga match. Hannover 96 will host a match for another promoted team, Darmstadt 98.
The match between Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund is always the center of attention for everyone especially since Dortmund coached by Jurgen Klopp and Munich coached by Pep Guardiola. The first meeting of these two teams will be in the first weekend of October and the return will be in the early March.
