Bayern to kick off Bundesliga defence against Wolfsburg

Munich - Reigning Bundesliga champions FC Bayern München are hoping to get their 2014/15 campaign off to a winning start when they welcome UEFA Europa League qualifiers VfL Wolfsburg to the Allianz Arena in Friday night's official curtain-raiser (kick-off 18:30 GMT/20:30 CEST).

Having suffered a setback in terms of both morale and personnel in the 2014 Supercup defeat to Borussia Dortmund, the record titleholders are keen to maintain their impressive home record against the Wolves, who are looking to underline their top-four ambitions by picking up points in Munich.
