Frankfurt/Main - Less than a month on from Hamburger SV clinching the final spot in the 18-team line-up set to battle it out in Germany’s top flight, the countdown to the new season has begun after the fixture list for the 2015/16 Bundesliga campaign was released by the DFL Deutsche Fußball Liga GmbH in Frankfurt.
FC Bayern München - Borussia Dortmund
With 34 Matchdays set to determine the fate of the sides involved, the 53rd Bundesliga campaign promises to pack in plenty of highlights that could have a marked effect on how things pan out at the top and bottom of the table.
Will VfL Wolfsburg mount a title challenge capable of toppling record titlehodlers FC Bayern München? Will Thomas Tuchel be able to turn things around at Borussia Dortmund? Can 1. FC Köln avoid the dreaded second-season syndrome and will newly-promoted sides SV Darmstadt 98 and FC Ingolstadt 04 be able to leave a lasting impression on the league of the world champions? All will be answered in due course, but which fixtures are the ones to watch out for?
