Bundesliga: Bayern travel to Stuttgart, Dortmund face Hannover trip

ADVERTISEMENT

With the start of September comes the second weekend of the 2018/19 Bundesliga season, still at the getting-to-know-you phase of the season, but things will start to be known.

One constant is Bayern Munich deemed as eternal favourites for the title, and Die Roten haven’t failed in that regard since 2012.

Niko Kovac’s team began the season with that VAR-tainted 3-1 win over Hoffenheim last Friday, and this weekend travel to Stuttgart, who began with defeat and will fancy their chances under little pressure against the champions.

Borussia Dortmund, last champions in 2012, began the campaign in sprightly fashion, a 4-1 dismantling over Leipzig last weekend. Die Schwarzgelben have a trip to Hannover this weekend, as they look to make it two wins from two.

Bayer Leverkusen, meanwhile, began with a defeat last weekend, and Heiko Herrlich’s side host Wolfsburg, who began with a win at home to Schalke.

Elsewhere, Borussia Monchengladbach hope to maintain their bright start as they visit Augsburg, while Leipzig, who began with defeat at Dortmund, host new boys Dusseldorf, as they hope to get up and running.

Hoffenheim host Freiburg, Hertha Berlin visit Schalke, while newly-promoted Nuremberg seek their first win as Mainz come to town.
