I made a mistake there, it's actually five.
Though on the other hand two of those are Wolfsburg and Leverkusen, so one could argue it's just three proper football clubs: Bayern, Dortmund and Gladbach.

These first rounds are always such boring matchups. I wish they'd at least give us one or two even games. Though having said that, caf favourites Hannover and Karlsruhe are already out.

No surprises in Dortmund's lineup, so many injuries the team picks itself:




Schott Mainz actually allowed Sky to broadcast their pre-game pep talk and for some reason there's a single Dortmund jersey hanging in the back. :houllier:

That goal was so good I’ll post it again in the “right thread”: What a goal!

Bayern have had plenty of chances themselves but Matiyas Tel has screwed up. You'd imagine with Kane at the end of those chances Bayern would've had two goals

You feel it's set up for a 3-2 Bayern win with Kane grabbing at least a brace

The transfers between the top teams show how messed up the Bundesliga is; Bayern take 2 good players from Dortmund and Leipzig for nothing, while Dortmund pay them £19m for a player they don’t want.

On another note Leipzig look like they’ve done reasonable business, including 2 highly rated forwards

Simons allowed to just drive through at the defence, the midfield offering no real cover for Bayern

Surely it would've been cheaper and less drama to just pick up Olmo + Werner from Leipzig ?
