Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
European champions Bayern Munchen kick off the new Bundesliga campaign with a home match against Schalke 04. The German giants did well to keep hold of key players in the summer transfer window, with Leroy Sane joining the club for an initial £41m. The pacey winger, though, has yet to overcome his long-term injury, meaning that he will not face his former club on Friday evening.
In his absence, a man to watch in the home team will be Robert Lewandowski, who was scoring goals for fun in all competitions last term. Die Knappen, on the other hand, suffered shocking defeats to Uerdingen and Verl in preseason, and it is no wonder they are seen as underdogs in Friday’s showdown. Bayern Munchen are a real force to be reckoned with at home, and we are positive that they will make a flying start to the season.
