With the German Bundesliga returning to our screens this weekend, the opening fixture of the new campaign will see high-flying Bayern Munich take on rivals Schalke 04 at the Allianz Arena on Friday evening.

The fixture schedule has got this one spot-on as there couldn’t be a better way to kickstart this new season. Bayern Munich will still be hungover from the successes of the previous term, hoping to replicate those exploits once again.

Meanwhile, Schalke 04 endured a torrid season last time out, and will be looking to put those woes behind them as the new campaign draws nearer. Expect a nerve-cracking game of football between these two come kick-off.

Bayern Munich vs Schalke 04 Team News

In smoking red-hot form, Bayern Munich were totally unstoppable last season, winning every single trophy on offer. Not only were they winning games, the manner in which the Bavarians scored points were very convincing.

Given how poor Bayern began the 2019/20 season, few would have foreseen them completing a treble of silverwares at the end of the term. Following a slow start to the campaign, Die Roten were grasping for straws to keep up with the top-four.

However, the club’s board acted quickly, relieving erstwhile manager Niko Kovac of his services last November, and appointing Hans-Dieter Flick as his replacement. With Flick in the dugout, the atmosphere around the Allianz Arena changed for the better.

Grabbing a string of victories, the Bavarians gained momentum that helped spark a resurgence. Bayern ended the season as the best club in the whole of Europe, clinching the Bundesliga, DFB-Pokal and UEFA Champions League titles.

They famously defeated Barcelona 8-2 in the quarterfinals of the Champions League – a result that will live long in the memories of Der Bayern. Now, a new season is on the horizon, and Bayern will want nothing but a repeat of last term’s achievements.

Looking to begin their 2020/21 campaign on a winning note, Bayern will need to defeat Schalke 04 when they lock horns in a few hours’ time. All things being equal, Flick’s men should have it easy against this Schalke side that managed to escape relegation last season.

The Royal Blues played out one of their worst campaigns in a while, finishing in the bottom-half of the standings. In fact, Wagner’s men can count themselves lucky to still be in the German top-flight, having stayed just eight points clear of the drop-zone.

Schalke also had a mixed pre-season, alternating between losses and wins. Participating in five friendly fixtures, Die Knappen emerged victorious in three whilst succumbing to defeat in the remaining two.

A positive to take would be the back-to-back wins over Aris Limassol and Bochum in their final two off-season games. They will hope to salvage a good result here to get the new season off to a flyer.
